I never had spots, just the odd one occasionally. DS1 age 13 and DD nearly 12 have both got lots of little sports (DS has a lot more) there aren’t big pulsing acne spots but very small pus type spots mainly on t-zone.
As I’ve never had to deal with spots like this I’m not sure what the best skincare routine for them is. I’ve got them facial wipes.
What is everyone else’s teen skincare routine? Wha reproducers are best ( as obviously don’t want to strip thier skin)
my dd and ds use this facial soap bar (I cut it in half and give them each a half. It lasts quite a while), every morning and night. They use simple face moisturiser directly after using the soap x
My son uses the Nip/Fab teenage range with some success. They have wipes for morning/evening and a topical cream. Make sure the skin does not dry out so make sure she uses an oil free moisturiser too. Dermaologica are supposed to have a great teen range too if you don't mind spending a bit more
My 10 year old has got some blackheads and the start of hormonal skin. We are using Cerave wash, Effaclar toner and blackhead lotion, it is starting to work on the blackheads.
My DD is 17 now and has found after trying various things that the Dermalogica teen range called Clear Start is really good. It cleared up her skin very well and keeps on top of things.
Also, she uses a face cloth to dry her face after washing it and puts it straight in the wash so she’s never reusing a towel with bacteria. Very regular changes of pillow cases too helps.
I swear by the La Roche Posay range for oily/spot prone skin. There's also a foaming facial cleanser which is more gentle for everyday use.
