Teenage acne can be embarrassing.

If you are looking to treat acne with over the counter products here are some tips:

  1. Wash your face at least twice daily and after exercise or working outside as sweat and dirt can clog pores.
  2. Use a daily moisturizer and wear sunscreen
  3. Try over the counter acne prodcuts. Look for ingredients like salyciclic acid and benzoyl proxide.
  4. Use makeup prodcuts that are “noncomedogenic”
  5. Avoid getting hairgel and sprays on your face
  6. Don’t squeeze or pop pimples as this can cause scaring
  7. Maintain a healthy diet
  8. Change your pillow case every night

If these tips don’t work consider talking to your doctor about what we can do to help you.
