The Teen Acne Treatment Guide

The Teen Acne Treatment Guide

Whether it’s part of your back-to-school checklist or you simply need a fresh start, a proper skin care routine can help treat hormonal acne and other common skin concerns that occur during teenage years. Navigating life as a teenager can be difficult enough without having to deal with breakouts, so when your skin is struggling, it can be extremely frustrating.

With the rise of social media and influencer culture, there is even more pressure for teens to look perfect and have flawless skin. This can be very discouraging, considering hormonal changes are natural during teenage years and can affect your skin in new ways. Your skin is always changing, making it important to understand how to take care of it properly so that it’s healthy and you feel happy + comfortable in your skin. Keep reading to learn about our simple and effective teen acne treatment do’s and don’ts, how to stop acne and how to heal acne scars fast.

DO be consistent

Real, lasting change comes from every day effort. As tired and busy as you may be, spending 5-10 minutes each morning and night to take care of your skin will pay off. The only steps you need to do daily are cleanse, tone, moisturize and protect with sunscreen with a weekly exfoliation. It takes about 2-3 months for your skin to see change from a regular skin care routine, so stick to it!

DON’T cherry pick products

As exciting as it is to try new products and incorporate new formulas from various brands, you will ultimately see best results when all of your skin care products are coming from the same company - as long as they are using active ingredients. Many companies focus on what they’re NOT using instead of what they ARE and instead stuff their products with filler ingredients that don’t actually do anything for the skin. Our products contain active ingredients, are tested for efficacy and are meant to be used together for real, lasting results.

‘’I’ve noticed a huge difference in my skin since I’ve started my new skincare regime. Sticking to one brand for all my products makes my skincare routine so much easier. My texture on my forehead, chin, and cheekbone area has been reduced tremendously. I still struggle with occasional breakouts and redness on my cheeks, but I’m a teenage girl so what can ya do. My skin feels nourished and healthy now that I’m finally giving it what it needs.”

DO include a spot treatment

Acne can be so unpredictable that even the possibility of a breakout can take a toll on your mind. Minimize your stress by always having an effective acne spot treatment on hand for when spots do surface. A proper formula will target acne at the source without over-drying, help the skin heal and prevent new breakouts from forming.

DON’T skimp on sunscreen

Sunscreen isn’t just for vacation. Majority of sun damage comes from every day exposure to UVA + UVB rays. Dermatologists urge to include sunscreen as part of the daily skin care regimen and are still routinely ignored, despite sunscreen being proven to protect against skin cancer and minimize hyperpigmentation. If you’re desperate to know how to heal acne scars fast and prevent new acne spots from staying, it’s simple: wear your sunscreen every single day!

DO see an esthetician

Regular spa treatments along with the right at-home routine is the fastest way to achieve the skin you want. Estheticians are trained experts in skin care that provide you with personalized treatment based on your specific skin concerns in the spa and recommend the right products for you to use at home. We designed the Bioelements Teen Facial for teen skin concerns - it targets stress-related breakouts, dark circles and dullness on teen skin and features a deep cleansing and exfoliation, followed by a relaxing aromatherapy massage. The radiant results from this teen acne treatment are instant, leaving you looking and feeling refreshed and confident.

“It is so important for athletes to keep up on their skin care routine. My client is a football player and had dead skin + sweat buildup. This facial was perfect for him because after removing the excess buildup, it revealed a smoother, less textured, and a more even complexion.”
