Has anyone any tips? ex and I had bad acne and I'm scared he'll end up like us.
I suppose I'll have to take him to the dr but just wondered if anyone has any tips to unblock his pores.

My DD is 11 and has started to get spots on her t-zone, I've got her wipes and moisturiser for young skin. Superdrug keep a lot of stuff. There are exfloiators as well, the only thing I worry about is something being too abrasive. Asda also do cleansers that are supposed to clear pores and prevent blackheads.

Thanks I think moisturiser is a good idea. That's something I didn't do as a kid. Agree with abrasives, they make it worse I think.

The Asda stuff has a moisturiser as well, it prevents sebum build up. The wipes are T-Zone ones which have Tea Tree and Witch Hazel in them.
Now all I have to do is stop her picking!
