How to Tackle Teenage Acne

Tips from an expert dermatologist

Acne, a common skin condition, is particularly challenging for teenagers. The physical and emotional impact of acne during these formative years is well-documented. It is easy to write off acne as something that will go away on its own, but this is very far from the truth. In reality, the effects of acne like marks and scars can last a lifetime and hence the sooner acne is handled the better.

Best Practices for Tackling Teenage Acne – Insights from Dr. Sejal Saheta (MD, DNB – Dermatology and Venereology)

Understanding Teenage Acne

Teenage acne, often referred to as acne vulgaris, typically emerges during adolescence due to hormonal changes. It affects around 85% of teenagers at some point, and while it is usually not a serious medical condition, it has a profound impact on self-esteem and mental well-being.

Expert Tips for Acne from Dr. Sejal Saheta @ Inurskn 

1. Early Intervention is Key

Acne worsens if left untreated. Early intervention helps prevent severe breakouts and scarring.

2. Consistent Skincare Routine & Hygiene

The primary reason for acne remains bacterial proliferation on the skin and as such Dermatologists recommend a gentle skincare routine. Use a mild cleanser, non-comedogenic moisturizer, and sunscreen. Avoid harsh scrubbing, as it irritates the skin.

3. Over-the-counter (OTC) Products

While many OTC products are available in the market. It is best to stay clear of these. These products are generally not very effective at treating acne and in some cases can cause serious adverse reactions.

4. Avoid Picking or Squeezing

Popping pimples or picking at acne lesions worsens inflammation and leads to scarring. Encourage teens to keep their hands off their faces.

5. Nutrition and Hydration

A balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains supports overall skin health. Staying well-hydrated is essential, as it helps maintain skin’s moisture and elasticity.
