Acne is one of the major teenage problems. Although it can come in any phase of life but usually hormonal changes during puberty can cause breakouts and pimples.
Do you know Acne is one amongst ten of the most common diseases in the world?
Acne can make any teenager conscious and may cause lack of confidence in personality. A child may start hating his looks and becomes an introvert.
The pressure of not looking good may also cause fear in them that maybe no one will like them with this face. So acne comes with a lot of physical as well as emotional disasters.
Guide your child with love and care that acne is normal in teenage and they are still dear and loved, no matter how they look.
Never use any acne medicine without doctors’ prescription.
Tell them to wash their face regularly, as removing dirt from the skin will reduce chances of blackheads and fungal infections that can make acne worse.
A tip to stay hydrated is also worthy enough to be given. Hydrated skin is always radiant and fresh and has fewer chances to develop any skin problem.
Help them to select skin products like lotions, moisturizer, face wash and make up for them.
Guide them to use different natural face packs for acne reduction.

Oily skin can lead to brown marks and uneven skin tone even if there is no acne at all. So children need to deal their skin carefully. Managing oily skin is tough of course, especially when you have so many other things to handle.
Guide your children to wash and cleanse their face regularly and tell them about the importance of using sunscreens while going out.
Tell them not to use oily makeup and help them in choosing cosmetics for them.
