Best facial and skincare for teens by Best Facials Singapore

As a teenager, I suffered from acne and blemishes. This episode during my puberty left a big impression on me. It made me feel that one can be helpless when the skin acts up and no one is there to help. My friends and I used to go through aisles and aisles of products in the pharmacy in search of the right face wash, face masks and pimple cream.

I still remember vividly my boil became so infested that I had to be hospitalized. My would was cleansed, sterilized with hydrogen peroxide and was put on antibiotic drip for a couple of days.

Since then, I feel for teenagers who suffer from pimples, acne whilst coping with growing pains.

So, why do teenagers suffer from pimples and acne?

The main culprit: The level of testosterone has risen. This increases sebum production and makes the skin oilier. At the same, keratin on the epidermal layer becomes thicker and blocks the pores. This encourages bacteria and spots to form. In some cases, the skin becomes inflamed and spots develop into acne. If you also seem to suffer from peeling skin and sensitivity, you’re using the wrong skincare. Too harsh, too synthetic, highly perfumed. Possibly also very strong pimple cream which contains sulphur which may be burn the skin.

What should you do?

There is no magic wand to reverse imbalanced skin, especially if it is triggered by hormonal changes.

First, we need to aim to be gentle to the overall face and restore the skin’s natural immunity.

The key to breaking the cycle is effective cleansing. Opt for a gentle face wash for morning and night over the entire face, then apply a targeted treatment product directly on the spots. They usually contain salicylic acid, which dries up the blemish and has antibacterial properties. My favorite for my teenage girls are Maria Galland SOS Purifying Serum RD510 and Guinot Pure Balance Cream.

Is it too early to have facials?

Generally, it is not needed. If you skin becomes more congested and with more blackheads, look for a facial spa which has the knowledge to calm the skin and not focus on extraction only. In our salon, Guinot Hydradermie treatment with Purifying Serum, Babor Purifying Ampoule facial and Maria Galland Detox Facial helps to exfoliate the young ones well without stripping off the hydration from their skin.

What about food to avoid and increase?

Do cut down on cow’s milk, sugar.
Eat more of foods which balances hormones such as sesame, flaxseed, sunflower seed and pumpkin seeds. They contain magnesium and essential fatty acids which are vital for skin function. Consume more bananas and broccoli.
