Breakouts can be detrimental on a teenager's psychological behavior. Shy teens can become more introvert or even bullied and stay away from integrating with the rest of their friends.
The good news is that clear skin is possible with the right knowledge, know-how and Clear Start™, our dedicated breakout-clearing line for teens.
What causes teen breakouts?
Breakouts are generally part-genetic, part-hormonal. But unlike adult breakouts, which tend to be inflammatory and related to stress, teen breakouts are usually triggered by puberty.
As teenagers transition from children to adults, puberty triggers the movement of new chemicals in their bodies. Androgen hormones, often called “male” hormones even though they are in both males and females, become more pronounced — and trigger breakouts.
Why are they such a big deal?
Teen breakouts are completely normal but they can greatly affect your teen’s appearance. This can lead to bullying, stress, depression and low self-esteem. The good news? The hormones that cause them eventually stabilize, lessening breakouts as teens reach adulthood.
How should my teen treat breakouts?
Your teen’s key focus at this stage should be to unclog pores, minimize breakout-causing bacteria and control oil. Thorough cleansing, toning and moisturizing day and night is a good start, as well as incorporating products that work to reduce impaction plugs, kill bacteria, control excess sebum and reduce Inflammation.
