Pimples are a teen’s worst back-to-school nightmare.
Just when one needs to put their best face forward to meet new friends or catch up on old acquaintances and classmates, acne can make one feel insecure. Sure, no one should judge you for a small red spot on your face but the reality is pimples happen. It’s normal. If you take care of your skin and eat healthy, chances are you can help prevent it from becoming worse.
I’ve had my horror stories about pimples and I’m glad my mom had the beauty wisdom to teach me simple tips on how to take care of unwanted acne. I’m sharing the same advice on skin care and my own two cents’ worth to share with my daughter.
Easy peasy pimple-free face:
1. Form a skin care regimen as soon as you hit puberty. Hormones may cause growth of acne and it’s best to always have a clean face (just don’t over wash your face).
2. My daughter and I have been using the Clarisonic Mia Sonic Skin Cleanser. It’s the BEST beauty gadget!!! Read my blog about it here.
3. Seek professional help. Visit your dermatologist and go on regular non-invasive facial treatments. Aryanna and I have mom & daughter bonding sessions at Facial Care Centre while having a relaxing facial.
At the end of the day, pimples come and go; it’s inevitable. What’s important is that one should face up and do something about it to prevent more breakouts. Empower your teens by giving them sound beauty wisdom. Right, moms?
