Tips for Moms with Teenagers Who Have Acne

mom with teenagerJust because your teenager has developed acne, doesn't mean that you need to sit back and let them suffer.  As the parents of a teenager, you have the opportunity to help your teen get the clear skin that they want so badly!  Below are Dr. Schweiger's tips for moms with teenagers who have acne.
  • Encourage good skin care: Help your teen to get in the habit of cleansing their face in the morning and evening, with a cleansing brush at least once a day if possible.  Remind your teen to apply any acne medications prescribed by their dermatologist prior to bed.
  • Discourage picking: Explain to your teenager that picking at their acne just makes the pimple stick around longer and can lead to permanent scarring.
  • Visit the dermatologist together: Accompany your teen to their dermatology appointments, so that you are able to hear the recommendations of the dermatologist and discuss them with your teen.  In-office laser treatments for acne can be beneficial for teenagers with acne, so you will want to discuss this with the dermatologist during the consultation.
  • Purchase sunscreen: It is important that teenagers who are being treated for acne wear sunscreen, so that they do not develop a sunburn while using acne medications and undergoing treatments that make them more sun sensitive.
  • Pay attention to diet: Recent studies suggest that diet may play a role in the development of acne in teenage boys.  Pay attention to the correlation between your teen's diet and their acne; if you notice that they go hand in hand, encourage them to stick with a healthier diet.
