Skincare for Teenagers

A teenagers’ skin goes through significant changes during adolescence, which can impact its health and appearance. Hormonal fluctuations, such as increased testosterone or the menstrual cycle, increases sebum production, resulting in oily skin and potential acne breakouts.

Sebum is a natural oil, produced by the skin to keep it moisturised and prevent dehydration. However, during adolescence, a teenager's skin often produces an excess of sebum that can clog pores and lead to a buildup of bacteria in the skin, resulting in spots, blackheads and whiteheads. Also, hormonal changes during the menstrual cycle stimulates the sebaceous glands in the skin to produce even more sebum, leading to more blocked pores and spot break-outs.

Therefore, it’s important for teenagers to adopt the appropriate skincare regime. For an acne-prone skin this should include gentle, but pore-deep cleansing of the skin regularly to remove excess oil and to prevent pore blockages. Gentle exfoliation can be beneficial, and products that utilise micro-peeling particles based on natural lipids can effectively exfoliate the skin, removing dead skin cells and unclogging pores to promote a smoother complexion. It’s important to look for gentle formulations that are designed to restore and maintain a healthy skin at a pH level of 5.5 whilst alleviating the symptoms of acne-prone skin. Sebamed offers a wide range of products for oily or acne-prone skin, including a sebamed Clear Face Antibacterial Cleansing Foam, sebamed Clear Face Facial Toner and a sebamed Clear Face Anti-spot gel.
