Acne and teenage skin

We help you take care of your oily and/or acne-prone skin

What is acne?

Acne is a skin condition that affects the sebaceous glands. They are attached to the pores through a channel called a follicle. If these glands produce too much sebum, pores can get clogged causing spots or blackheads. Plus, dirt, bacteria and dead cells tend to build up, causing infection. It is the most common skin condition. People of all races and ages can suffer from acne. However, acne is most common in teenagers and young people. An estimated 80% of all people between the ages of 11 and 30 have outbreaks at some time.

What are the causes?

Hormone production increases during adolescence, which can cause the pores (hair follicles) to generate oil, blocking the natural excretion of sebum and causing blackheads.

What can make acne worse?

- Cosmetics and suncare products not designed specifically for oily skin - Squeezing your spots - Poor diet - Some medications - Humidity and sweat

Healthy skin without spots?

Get it with good habits and daily routine

1

CLEANSE YOUR SKIN WELL

Hygiene is key to stopping bacteria from spreading. Use cleansers meant for acne-prone skin twice daily.

2

OISTURISER FOR OILY SKIN? YES!

Moisturising is very important, even if you have oily skin. Choose a non-comedogenic, long-lasting moisturiser and apply it once or twice daily.

3

HANDS OFF!

Try not to touch your spots, you can make pores irritated and inflamed. Plus, you risk scarring.

4

DEVELOP HEALTHY HABITS

Do sport, sleep well, don’t overdo it and eat a healthy diet, avoiding industrial pastries, cured meats and alcohol. Avoid stress and nervousness.

5

PATIENCE!

Acne doesn’t go away overnight. For the treatment to be effective, you have to be patient, consistent and follow the recommendations of your dermatologist or chemist.

6

WATCH THE SUN!

You may see an improvement but too much time in the sun can leave scars and even, over time, make your skin oilier. Don’t spend too much time in the sun and always use oil-free suncare products.

FOR GIRLS

Avoid any cosmetics that contain oil and avoid make-up and blusher & hellip; as they can make acne worse. If you do wear make-up, make sure to clean your face properly every night.

FOR BOYS

Each case of acne is different. Acne treatment must be customised depending on the type of problem, gender and other characteristics of the patient.
