How to Help Your Teen Deal with Acne

56

There are many issues that a teenager has to deal with as they get older; the transition from child to adult is a difficult one, and those years in between can be very confusing and worrying. Hormones are surging, and bodies are changing, and everything they used to know, and feel is becoming different. It’s no wonder that teenagers can be distressed over what adults might consider to be small things. 

Acne is one of those things; it is something that a teenager could be devastated about, even though it is something that the majority of them will have to go through due to the additional quantities of the androgens that the body is producing. 

As a parent, it’s important to understand how upsetting acne can be for your teenager and knowing how to deal with it will help everyone. You don’t have to buy topical ointments from the store; however, there are other options. 

Natural Remedies 

A teenager suffering from acne will be willing to dry many different things to prevent or reduce the signs and symptoms. Several different natural remedies can be used, and some will be more effective than others depending on your child’s skin type and the amount of acne they have. Some of these natural remedies include:

  • Apple cider vinegar mixed with water
  • Freshly squeezed lemon juice 
  • Honey (used as a face mask)
  • Tea tree oil
  • CBD oil from CopeCBD.com

Trying natural remedies can be an idea for your teenager because it will give them something to focus on as they look at ways to combat their acne, plus it means not having to use harsh chemicals on the skin.  

Reduce Toxins 

The skin is an organ, and one of its main jobs is to help the body eliminate toxic waste products – this occurs through the sweat. The more toxins in the body, the more overworked the kidneys and liver are, and the more work the skin will have to do to make up for it. When toxins escape through the skin, the pores can become clogged up and, combined with the additional hormones, and pimples can appear. Therefore, the fewer toxins the body has to cope with, the less chance there is of making the acne worse than it needs to be. 

To do this, a diet will play a big part. Eliminating processed foods and eating whole foods instead (as well as adding more fruits and vegetables to your teen’s diet) will help immensely. It is important to drink more water as this will flush out the toxins before the skin has to go to work. 

Keep the Skin Clean 

Keeping the skin clean is a crucial step in reducing the symptoms of acne. Throughout the day, it can become extremely dirty thanks to pollutants, dust, oils, and general dirt. Your teen may not even notice that is it dirty as it could look clean. 

By washing the face gently twice a day, these invisible pollutants can be removed before they can clog the pores and result in pimples. Remember that over-washing will also cause problems as the sebaceous glands can be over-stimulated and produce more oil. Use a completely natural soap when washing and don’t scrub too hard.
