Teenage Acne Treatment

The skin of adolescents often requires a teenage acne treatment to counteract pimples, whiteheads and blackheads. Teenage acne is caused by an inflammation of the sebaceous glands, which often comes with an augmentation of the size of the sebaceous glands, increased sebum production and/or an unbalanced composition of the sebum itself.

These alterations lead to the formation of a plug made of skin cells and fat that blocks the pore, which favors the development of the bacterium Propionibacterium Acnes. Teenage acne often has an important emotional impact that increases the levels of anxiety, anger, depression and frustration.

My 15-year-old daughter suffered from acne, and I still had some products and samples left. In just a few days, her skin was transformed! Nowadays my daughter and I follow the morning and night routines with LE PURE. We are so happy! THANK YOU.

Skincare Routine Teenage Acne

Teenage Acne Skincare Routine

The external treatment of teenage acne is very similar to adult acne, except that teenage skin doesn’t need the regular application of creams.

Day Routine Teenage Acne

Cleanse the skin gently with Alpha Tonic. Spray Nectar Immortel onto the areas with acne.

Night Routine Teenage Acne

Cleanse the skin gently with Alpha Tonic following The Wave Cleansing Ritual. Spray Nectar Immortel onto the areas with acne. Then apply a layer of the masque Instant Liberation on the areas with acne and let it act overnight.

We recommend to use as little makeup as possible to allow the skin to heal. If you do wear makeup, cleanse the skin gently with Detox Deluxe following The Wave Cleansing Ritual. If you need to use foundation, apply the makeup cream Perfecting Illumination, which is free from chemically modified fats and allows the skin to breathe.

What Causes Teenage Acne?

The causes of teenage acne are usually multifactorial, including internal and external factors. It is essential to correct the underlying causes to achieve the best results.

  1. Hormones and Teenage Acne
  2. Nutrition and Teenage Acne
  3. Vitamin D and Teenage Acne
  4. Emotional stress and Teenage Acne
  5. Skincare products for Teenage Acne

1. Hormones and Teenage Acne

During adolescence there are many hormonal changes. Very often these imbalances are worsened by nutritional deficiencies such as zinc, copper and vitamin D.

2. Nutrition and Teenage Acne

Limiting the intake of bad fats, sugars and carbohydrates is essential to treat teenage acne. Select foods that are rich in Omega 3, vitamin D and micronutrients such as zinc and magnesium. Herbal teas such calendula and ginger have calming and antiinflammatory effects.

3. Vitamin D and Teenage Acne

Vitamin D deficiency is very common among teenagers. In order to determine if a vitamin D supplement is necessary, take a blood test and book a medical consultation with your doctor.

4. Emotional Stress and Teenage Acne

Acne may affect a person’s self-esteem, leading to increased emotional stress, which can actually worsen the symptoms of acne. Relaxation techniques such as meditation and tapping can reduce the emotional stress related to teen acne.

5. Skincare products for Teenage Acne

A gentle cleansing ritual is crucial to purify the skin without aggravating the inflammation. Follow our face cleansing tutorial to learn how to purify your skin without excessive rubbing and irritation.

Very often cosmetics recommended for teenage acne treatment (gel, acids, etc.) dry out the skin, which can result in a counterproductive effect. At first the skin may improve, but the dry skin can actually stimulate the production of more skin fat.

Avoid squeezing the pimples as this action can extend the inflammation and lead to the formation of nodules, cysts, scars and postinflammatory hyperpigmentation. We recommend also to avoid excessive sun exposure as it leads to an increase of acne at the end of the summer. Avoid skincare and makeup products containing synthetic or chemically modified fats, because these substances can clog the pores and aggravate acneic skin.
