I get asked a lot of questions about skin care for teenagers .

✅Treat acne promptly
Don’t take acne lightly. It can leave behind permanent scars. Don’t pop your acne and treat them correctly. Best to visit a dermatologist for prescription medications for acne.

▪️Few creams for acne prone skin:
✔️Salicylic acid in the morning
✔️Adapalene at night

✅Don’t try too many products
Be good to your skin and don’t experiment too much. You don’t need all the products you see online.

✅Keep scalp clean
Washing your scalp once a week is not enough. Scalp has to remain clean. Wash atleast 2-3 times a week.

✅Change pillow cover every 2 days
All the oils form hair tends to rub in the pillow case while you sleep which comes on the face. This may exacerbate acne. So changing pillow cover is very important especially if you have oily acne prone skin and or oily scalp.
