Acne affects 85% of people aged 15-24 and is one of the most common concerns for teenagers.
The reason why acne develops in teens is the hormonal changes that accompany puberty.
The pores in our skin contain oil glands which produce sebum, an oil that lubricates our
hair and skin. During puberty hormones go into overdrive,
stimulating the oil glands and causing them to produce more sebum than is required.
Pores become clogged when there is too much sebum mixing with dead skin cells and bacteria.
This causes swelling, redness and irritation - or as we all know it, a pimple.
If you’re a teenager with acne prone skin, as much as possible try to avoid touching
your face or picking and squeezing acne prone areas.
It is important to wash your face as least twice a day with a soap free cleanser such
as Papulex Moussant Soap Free Cleansing Gel and warm water.
When doing so, please do not scrub the skin because as aggravating as acne can be, scrubbing
the skin can cause additional irritation and worsen the appearance of acne.
When applying anything to the skin, whether it be make-up, sunscreen or creams, only use
oil-free, non-comedogenic products. These formulas do not clog pores or add any
extra oils to the skin. Papulex Oil-Free Cream is one example.
This oil-free product helps to reduce skin blemishes.
As with all stages of life, a skincare routine should be adopted to cleanse and moisturise
the skin. Papulex’s unique formula helps to calm,
control and clear acne-prone skin. It’s also a quick, two-step process, which
is ideal for busy teens. Just squeeze a pea sized amount of Papulex
Moussant Soap Free Cleansing Gel into the palms of your hands and foam up with warm
water then cleanse your face and affected areas, leaving the treatment on for a few
minutes for a deep clean, before rinsing thoroughly. After cleansing, apply Papulex Oil Free Cream
to the face and affected areas, massaging gently to facilitate absorption.
Follow this regime morning and night. It's simple!
