Teen Acne | Acne Meaning & Acne Treatment for Teenage Girls and Boys


so if you are in your teens I am sure
you have read about acne we have a lot of teenager viewers on our channel and
we have had many requests to do a video on teen acne so I am here today to do a
video just for you guys a lot of you are stressed out about acne and cysts and
all these breakouts but you guys may not know the correct way to take care of
acne and actually make it worse by doing stuff that you’re not supposed to do to
these troublesome friends so I’m going to tell you exactly how to care for them
from characteristics to cause and the right care method I have brought the A
to Z for teen acne so get ready to be tuned in so let’s go over the facts
why acne is caused and why its formed and the different types of acne number 1
the types of acne so it’s important to know your enemies your skin has pores
which contains oil glands when you hit puberty you produce more sex
hormones called androgens and these androgens kind of agitate your oil
glands producing more sebum and more oil and just making your face more grease
here in general when there’s too much sebum the pores or hair follicles get
blocked by skin cells the increase in oil also results in a growth of bacteria
so it’s just a big no-no for your skin in general
now if these blocked pores become infected or inflamed that’s when you start
getting acne but first let’s talk about the different types of acne and really
get into detail first Whitehead: white dots that are impacted with oil and
covered with skin layers when this clogs and bulges this is when you have
whiteheads and whiteheads are removable second – papules so these are when you have
bacteria and sebum clogged underneath the skin and you have an inflammation now
lesions that have these inflammations can be a little um tender
to touch and they could be sensitive and they usually look like small bumps on
your skin C: pustule lesions that are inflamed and
filled with pus these may be red at the base when bacteria is
infected and your skin just gets all like irritated a pustule may appear
meaning a pimple is red and inflamed so it’s really like bumpy D: cysts now these
are the ones that you might have commonly heard of like cystic acne when
you talk about acne and this is when you really need care from like a
dermatologist these are pus filled lesions deep under
the skin and these can actually cause you pain cysts are formed when blockages
caused large and painful lumps beneath the skin surface so now that we have
talked about the different types of acne now let’s talk about the different
causes A: hormones so like I have mentioned androgens elevate during
puberty which causes gland to expand and produce more sebum hormonal changes also
occur after pregnancy or before and after using birth control pills the
blend of oil and cells allow bacteria that live on the surface to grow inside
the hair follicle opening as a result the pores are clogged and pimples developed
B: genetic so researchers believe that there may be a genetic disposition
regarding acne and that you might be getting it from your parents this
doesn’t mean you are destined to have your parents skin troubles during your
teens or throughout your life but there may be a bigger chance in you having
trouble with your skin C: medication some drugs – anti-epilepsy prednisone
on androgens and lithium for example can cause acne even in adults who have lived
way pass through their teen D: cosmetic anything with a greasy consistency can
make the follicle stick together making your skin more greasier and just have
clogged pores in general water-based products are less likely to cause acne
for this fact and I think this is a very common reason for acne in some cases
E: stress high levels of stress can be harsh on your skin CRH is released into
the blood through the brain during times of stress which creates cortisol
creating more oils in your gland again this blocks your pores causing acne
deep breathing and exercise and maintaining your stress in general can
help with your skin friction irritation on your skin just by rubbing against
surfaces different sort of surfaces such as you know your blanket or your clothing
or stuff like that even like other people’s…like your hands even on
this can cause irritation and cause acne bike helmets and tight collars and stuff
that’s just kind of like compressed your skin in general can also lead to
breakout basics to remember for teen acne now that we have talked about the
different types of acne and the different causes let’s talk about what
we can do to prevent and cure acne using the right cleanser is really really
important in taking care of your acne using a light cleanser that isn’t harsh on
your skin and that doesn’t strip your face of all the moisture but cleanses
thoroughly is really important and it’s good to use foam cleansers or stuff
that lathers up easily on your skin if you decide to use a cream type cleanser
it’s better to rub it and lather it up and then applying it to your face
instead of just slathering it off right away which causes irritation now one of
the biggest mistakes our teenagers make is using harsh scrubs please don’t if you’re
suffering with acne please PLEASE Plz I don’t know maybe it’s just a sensation
of like dead skin cells being removed and like just the feeling of being
rubbing um makes it feel like you’re cleansing away your acne but it’s really
important to be gentle it’s really important to exfoliate but it’s
important to exfoliate in the right way so one ingredient you guys may want to
keep in mind is AHA. AHA is a much more gentler way to exfoliate your skin for
people with acne out of AHA ingredients I would
recommend mandelic acid which has large particles so you could exfoliate without
penetrating too deep into your skin and this is not only way the perfect way to
exfoliate your skin in a gentle manner but also it hydrates this is super easy
to use and it’s super effective in getting rid of whiteheads so we
recommend it to all our teenage viewers and customers of wishtrend say no to
alcohol so another big mistake our teenagers make is using a toner with
alcohol in it the feeling the cooling sensation and
the feeling of just ridding your face of oils may feel good at first but the fact
that you’re stripping your face of oils actually causes it to create more oils
and using alcohol induced products from an early age could actually create a
higher chance of troublesome skin for the future it is very important to use a
product with a good water oil balance and try to avoid using products that
have high functions so like you know brightening or like anti-aging and stuff
like that that are richly infused but rather than stick to a toner that’s
hydrating and calming if you’re acne prone and rather than using your hands with
toner try using a sponge cotton pad and cotton pads in general to kind of organize
your skin texture kind of like sorting it out and helping your skin absorb the
moisture to improve skin texture and condition in general hands off don’t
squeeze your face don’t touch it I know all of you have that temptation deep
down in yourself like you’re like mm I want to squeeze it and I’m not saying
it’s wrong to extract but when you do please please please get professional
care from a dermatologist or a professional like a clinical expert or
if you have the correct sort of utensils within your house
then sterilize it you know with alcohol or anything kind of like cleaning so
that you don’t infect your face it’s really important try to target hydration
calming and soothing all at once for acne prone skin it’s really important to
hydrate lower your skin temperature and to soothe kind of difficult without you
know slathering on your face with a lot of oil induced products right in this
occasion finding one smart products to do all three of the above would be the
perfect thing to do a light texture serum that is not sticky and a cream
that’s not too oily and rich but can hydrate would be perfect and if you feel
like you don’t want to have too many skincare steps you can simply mix the two
and apply it as one cut caffeine and high processed food sugar and grains or
at least just cut coffee or soda caffeine I’m sure you guys have guessed
it stimulates and produces sebum clogging pores and
hair follicles refined carbohydrates and sugars can cause a surge of insulin
increasing male hormones causing more sebum so yeah kind of watch
what you eat if you guys are worried about your skin get moving but wash well
so this is like one of the best remedies I guess it’s really important to get
your sweat glands moving exercise so sweat it out sweat out all the stuff but
then wash and cleanse thoroughly afterwards simulating the sweat glands
um keeps it unclogged and clean but it’s also important to rinse and clean up
afterwards be patient and find your routine and regiment so when you’re
taking care of acne it’s really important to be patient and thorough with
everything you do um don’t stress over it too much come on guys you guys can
fix it it’s not a disease and through this process of trial and you know
testing you guys can find a perfect regime for you and the perfect skin care
remedy and find what works the best skin Skin regimen and product recommendation so
keeping all the tips and tricks I have mentioned above in mind I have brought
you guys all the product recommendations and step-by-step routine to help you
guys out so first cleansing we have mentioned it
so many times with the Klairs rich moist foaming cleanser this is a perfect
perfect product for teenagers with acne because it is still mild and gentle and
also it’s so easy to use um basically it’s already in a pump form and it foams
out as it comes I mean you don’t need to lather it off you know it’s just already
in its gentle state for your skin it balances your skin’s pH level because it
is low pH and also it’s really important to use your forefinger or a gentle as
part of your skin to massage it thoroughly throughout your face and
rinse now for exfoliating exfoliating is essential for having better skin texture
skin tone and removing unnecessary skin cells to prevent any breakouts but it’s
also important to do this in a non irritating and non harsh way but scrubs
can be definitely too for sensitive skin and acne prone skin
that’s why we have a new recommendation and this is a release from By Wishtrend
the mandelic acid 5% skins prep water many of our staff have seen significant
improvement in their skin and it does a great job in removing whiteheads
mandelic acid is a AHA ingredient so it helps with exfoliation and it also
hydrates and since it isn’t too harsh it is perfect for our teenagers out there another product is the Klairs Freshly Juiced vitamin drops this is perfect if you guys have acne scarring without
breakdown this not only face acne scars and marks on your face but it also
mildly exfoliate just make sure not to use two
exfoliators in one routine so if you’re using the mandelic acid toner for one
part of your routine then skip the vitamin drops and vice versa if you’re
using this then don’t use this kind of like go through and find the perfect
regimen for you Third step: toning The Klairs supple preparation facial toner
and the dear klairs toner made 2 in 1 cotton pad so hydration is very
important for acne care not only in treating but in preventing using a toner
that is not too thick but not too watery is really important another thing
toning is really good to bring in ingredients that are needed for the skin
and just kind of prepping your skin in general for skin care Serum recommendation the Klairs rich
moist soothing serum so this is perfect for lowering skin temperature which
prevents future breakouts and it also has a very light texture so it’s really
easily applicable it doesn’t make your skin feel oily or greasy but it gives
you the right amount of moisture Cream recommendation the Klairs rich moist
soothing cream and the Klairs midnight blue calming cream now when you guys
want to target hydrating and soothing at the same time you guys don’t want to use
too many products so a recommendation I can give you is to mix these two
products and use it as one extracting the Skinmiso comedo
remover when you’re extracting troubles it is best to see a professional but if you
have the right tools and you use the right method and it’s perfectly okay to
do it at home to make sure to sanitize the remover and the area and never to
touch it with your hand the comedo tool is very simple and easy to use so –
always come in handy last but not least aftercare the Klairs midnight blue
calming cream comes again after popping a pimple never leave it to be out in the
open air to dry but protect it with a cream using a repairing cream to create
a barrier helping your skin recover the Guaiazulene and the centella asiatica
ingredients will help your skin reduce inflammation and repair trouble helping
your acne disappear clean thank you guys for watching
