Skincare for teens can be one of the most difficult challenges while entering into adulthood. As their bodies hormonally go topsy turvy, their skin will commonly be attacked with pimples, blackheads, cysts, oily skin and whiteheads often leave a compilation of red marks, dark spots and craters after an epic breakout. Unfortunately, some teens can allow this condition to derail their social life, leaving them depressed and devoid of self confidence.
The first step for the average teen is usually an emergency trip to the drugstore to purchase the most popular topical antibiotics and astringents, which are moderately effective at controlling oily skin and shrinking a blemish or two. But what about the teen who suffers from chronic acne? Their massive breakouts need to be met with a more aggressive approach to prevent flareups. But those treatments can’t always be found in the skincare aisle.
Fortunately, there are more effective options available like Clearlight, which is a recommended treatment for tackling periodic breakouts. So how does it work? Clearlight uses non-invasive high intensity blue light to improve inflammatory acne, which includes red and pus bumps. The light activates bacteria fighting compounds called porphyrins, starting a chemical reaction that produces peroxide, which destroys the P. acnes bacteria that causes acne. For chronic acne Clearlight is used with Levulan, a topical solution that penetrates acne cells, destroys acne bacteria, unclogs pores with exfoliation and suppresses overactive oil glands.
For aging skin that’s prone to acne breakouts, large pores, wrinkles and fine lines, Skinceuticals offers products like LHA Cleansing Gel, Blemish + Age Defense, Clarifying Clay Mask and Retinol 1.0.
- LHA Cleansing Gel uses a combination of LHA, glycolic acid and salicylic acid to decongest pores, clear blemishes and brighten skin. It’s often used for pore refinement, minimizing fine lines, smoothing wrinkles and discoloration. It’s also used to remove excess oil and makeup.
- Blemish + Age Defense has 2% dioic acid and alpha and beta hydroxy acid to minimize the production of acne, clogged pores, while fine lines, wrinkles and discoloration is improved.
- Clarifying clay mask has kaolin, bentonite, earth clays to purify the skin and unclog pores, It also contains botanicals and minerals to soothe the skin and hydroxy acid to exfoliate dead skin cells.
- Retinol 1.0 is a night cream that works to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, clear skin discolorations and minimize breakouts.
Monthly hydrafacial treatments are also great at combating chronic acne and damaged skin. It’s a safe, non-invasive, non surgical treatment that delivers the beneficial properties of an elevated chemical peel in a series of specific steps for smooth healthy skin. The procedure involves shedding dead skin cells and removing excess oil that has accumulated in the pores. During the treatment the skin is preserved with Antiox serum, antioxidants, Peptides and Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate the skin, so that it holds moisture and elasticity.
