Caring for your skin as a teenager sets a solid foundation for later years. Oily skin, blackheads and acne are more common among teenagers during puberty when hormones flare and cause skin to overproduce sebum, oil that lubricates the skin and hair. A pustule (breakout) starts when the skin's pores become clogged with sebum. Follow the steps to reduce acne and learn to properly care for your skin.
Cleanse your face twice a day with mild face wash and warm water, avoid hot water, it will dry your skin out and avoid any bar soaps, those are very alkaline and can potentially harm your skin and increase breakouts. Follow by toner, with no alcohol and oil free moisturizer, remember your skin needs a moisturizer even if you got very oily skin, moisturizer is your skin’s food and water and good moisturizer will never make you breakout more.
