Preparing your teen on how to deal with acne

Teen acne

Acne is something which a person will be affected by generally sometime throughout their teenage to young adult years. Acne is especially common for younger women as their bodies adjust to hormone changes and the regular occurrence of getting their period. Men are also affected as their bodies develop throughout puberty and experience increase levels of testosterone.


As acne is the most common skin problem, it is important to be educated on the best skin care regimes and lifestyle habits we can incorporate into our daily routines, or teach to others to ensure acne is something which can be kept under control. Keep the following factors in mind for clear skin and manageable skin:


Good habits

  • Minimum 8 hours of sleep a night
  • Following a skincare regime morning and night
  • Not picking or touching your face - this spreads germs and encourages acne to spread


Healthy lifestyle factors

  • Drinking 8 glasses of water a day
  • Regular daily exercise - yoga is especially effective to balance mood and stabilise the body
  • Eating a diet based off organic and plant-based foods
  • Incorporating anti-microbial foods - some teas plus garlic, calendula (marigold) and echinacea supplements


Knowing what to avoid

  • Studies have shown that excess dairy can aggravate acne in some people
  • Reduce sugar and refined carbohydrates - stick to a low GI diet and avoid excess consumption of these products


Using the right products

  • Organic and chemical-free products are a must - try a 3 step process - plus a topical cream and repairing serum
  • Use a topical/ spot cream - this will stop bacteria spreading
  • Don't forget to tone - a chemical-free toner will tighten pores, without drying


We recommend The Jojoba Company Acne attack pack. This pack is based around simple 3 step beauty routine, which is suitable for all skin types. Included in the Acne Attack Pack is:

  1. Purifying Citrus Foaming Cleanser 3ml - foaming wash to remove oil and deep clean pores
  2. Jojoba Bead & Bamboo Facial Exfoliant 3ml - rejuvenate skin and remove bacteria and dead skin
  3. Blemish Control Serum 50ml - tighten pores, seals skin with anti-bacterial ingredients to discourage acne

Products also included in the pack to compliment the 3 step routine are the 100% Natural Australian Jojoba (30ml) to moisturise and repair damaged skin, plus the topical Spot-on Pimple Control cream (25ml) to target blemishes individually without all over drying effects.
