Teenage Troubles

Whilst many adults may want to dismiss teenage breakouts as a passing phase and nothing to worry about, there is a growing understanding that pimples and acne not only affect the skin but the psyche of many young people as well.

With the arrival of the all-important selfie, the perfect body, complexion and look are even more important and bad skin can have a dramatic effect on the self-confidence of many teens.

Sadly, the major contributing factor to whether you will get through your teen years pimple free or not comes down to genetics and hormones however, adopting good skin care habits from a young age can help reduce the impact of these factors.

The basis of any good skincare routine – regardless of age – is washing.  The most important product to buy and use is a good, gentle face wash that uses mild cleansing agents and works with pH of the skin.  Clean skin will not be as prone to pimples and breakouts but at the same time do not OVER CLEAN as this will overstimulate the skin causing more pimples.  The temperature of the water is also important – use warm to cool water to rinse the face.

Remember: Pimples take time to heal whether you are using topical or oral treatments for breakouts.  It will take time for blemishes to heal – do not expect miracles.
Even oily, pimple prone skin needs moisturising, but it is important to use the right type of moisturiser.  The natural response to breakouts is to try and dry them out but without moisture, the skin’s natural response is to produce even more oil.  An oil-free, non-comedogenic (i.e. does not block pores) moisturiser is ideal – preferably with an SPF.

Try: Celltone’s Spot Control Moisturiser, R199.90 for 100ml.

Remember: Avoid the two P’s – popping and picking.  Popping pimples may make you feel better, but it will actually take longer to heal and often leads to permanent scarring. Furthermore, popping causes cross-contamination and constantly fiddling with the skin spreads the oil.
Celltone’s Spot Control Range focuses on maintaining the health of the skin to prevent unhealthy germ growth which leads to pimples and breakouts.  For more information on the range go to www.celltone.co.za and follow us on Facebook.
