Acne, oily skin and blackheads are a part of every teenager’s life. The hormonal changes in the body wreak havoc on your skin resulting in a rapid growth of acne and excessively oily skin. Everyone goes through this phase but taking a little extra care may ensure you go through this phase smoothly.

A teenager’s skin requires extra care along with the right skin care products and we’re here to give you just that.

Deep cleanse
 

Deep cleanse

Use a deep pore cleansing face wash twice daily that will pick up all the deep set dirt and oil from your skin. However, ensure that it isn’t too harsh or it can make your skin conditions worse. The Pond’s Pure White Anti-Pollution Face Wash with Activated Charcoal is suitable for all age groups and gives you deep cleansed, glowing skin after every wash.

Control oil
 

Control oil

At this age your oil glands are over active and produce more oil than your skin requires. Use matte skin care products that won’t add to the greasiness. Keep blotting paper or tissues handy during the day to absorb the extra oil every few hours.

Minimise the use of makeup
 

Minimise the use of makeup

Your body and skin is undergoing a lot of changes at this stage. Using makeup everyday can block the pores and lead to more whiteheads and blackheads. Instead use a tinted moisturiser or CC cream that will protect as well as hide skin imperfections. We swear by the aloe infused Lakmé 9to5 Naturale CC Cream which comes with SPF 30 PA+++

Wear sunscreen

Now is the right time to inculcate this habit that will make your skin thank you later on in life. Sun damages your skin in more ways than you know so do not leave the house without wearing sunscreen. Keep the Lakmé  Sun Expert Ultra Matte SPF 50 PA+++ Gel Sunscreen in your bag at all times, it gives a matte finish and can be easily applied at anytime and anywhere.

While keeping your hands clean is really important, avoid touching your face every now and then. Your phone is another gadget where germs breed so keep it away from your face while talking on the phone.
