Post in Acne-Prone Skin

Teen acne

my 13 year old daughter has been using the Boscia purifying cleansing gel, day creme spf 15 and willow bark treatment for her mild acne. After 6 weeks her face remains unchanged, not better, not worse.  Her acne is in the t zone and she has some blackheads.  What do you recommend? Should she go to a salicylic acid combined with Benzoyl perioxide regimem?

I would recommend Clinique's "Acne Solutions" line of products.  They make some great skincare products (I love their foaming cleanser) and I will list a few below:

I have a fifteen-year-old daughter with the same problem, so I am guessing your daughter has an oily t-zone. My girl has had good results using a mild cleanser with Salicylic Acid, a topical Salicylic Acid treatment a night only, followed with an acne control moisturizer (all Murad),  but she really saw a reduction in blackheads when she started using the Oil Control Mattifier during the day. Best of luck!

I know the products aren't inexpensive, but they do last a long time if used in the proper amounts. I showed my daughter the right amounts of everything to use, I see what she does with hair conditioner Smiley Wink

I am quite certain you don't want to hear what I have to say, but...  instead of spending money on products right now, a couple of visits to a good dermatologist would be better.  Insurance might even cover the visits.  She is only 13 and does not need to go through long periods of frustration.  Better **bleep** the problem in the bud and get rid of it quickly. 

A change of diet might also help.  No sugars and no fried food, no sodas; lots of good fresh fruits and vegetables and lots of water. 

Good luck.

I had the same problem it was mainly just on my forehead, and occasionally on my nose/chin.  However the Benzoyl Perioxide and Salicylic acid just dried out my nose/ chin because it was too strong. I finally went to see a dermatologist where they perscribed this topical perscription for me, which is working, and restoring my face back pre- teenage years.

Hope this helps!!
