About a year ago, my teen started experiencing breakouts. I know how embarrassing and self-conscious you can feel when you have breakouts on your face, and it is even worse as a teenager. Kids can be mean and breakouts are too!
I clearly remember how I felt when he woke up on picture day with a zit on his nose my freshman year in high school. I was freaking out and completely horrified! YIKES! Although I'm positive that we have all experienced an embarrassing breakout at one point in our life, I felt like it was the worst day of my life!
My teenage son is active in wrestling, so personal hygiene is always a top priority and concern. There are way to many skin rashes that are associated with wrestling, so taking proper care of his face (and skin) are part of his daily routine.
My son washes his face in the morning before leaving for school and then again before going to bed. In the past he has always used blackhead astringent. Two weeks ago he switched to using Clearasil in the evening and his normal product in the morning.
There are so many different factors that can cause breakouts; clogged pores, sweat, dirty or oily skin, stress, and a poor diet are among the most common triggers. As terrible as breakouts are, they are bound to happen. However, it's nice to know that there are steps you can take to help minimize breakouts.
- Don’t forget – you are not alone in having pimples so don’t let them ruin your life
- Properly wash your face – don't use too many skin care products
- Rinse – rinse your face with warm water (not hot) and pat dry with a soft towel
- Repeat daily for maximum results
