Dealing with breakouts is no fun, especially when there’s no one-size-fits-all treatment when it comes to acne. What works for one might not work for another.

While you may want to consult with a dermatologist to determine the best course of action, there are some things you can do to help get teen acne under control. Here’s how to start your path to a clearer complexion.

  1. Build an acne-proof routine

    A consistent routine is key to managing teen acne. Wash your face each morning with a gentle cleanser that won’t strip the skin’s protective barrier. Moisturising is important, too — use an oil-free moisturiser mornings and evenings to ensure essential hydration. And always apply SPF as the last step of your morning routine.

    Before you go to bed, we recommend doing a double cleanse by using a makeup remover first, then following that up with a gentle face wash. You can also try incorporating a face mask with salicylic acid or lactic acid into your regimen to exfoliate the skin and help prevent clogged pores.

  2. Take a gentle approach

    Refrain from subjecting your skin to high concentrations of harsh and drying ingredients. They can further aggravate the skin and make your acne worse. Instead, prioritise soothing ingredients such as aloe vera, juniper stem cells, zinc PCA, bisabolol and tea tree oil.

  3. Reach for a spot treatment

    These concentrated treatments help target existing blemishes and prevent new ones. Look for formulas with salicylic acid or benzyl peroxide to tackle breakouts head on. Just be sure not to overdo it.

  4. Be consistent

    Your skin needs consistency and patience. No product is going to give you clear skin overnight — if you want to see results, commit to your skincare routine daily and don’t give up.
