We all know that breakouts go hand in hand with young skin. A sudden tsunami of hormones during puberty leads to an increase in oil production, paving the way for congestion and breakouts.
The first step to treating teenage breakouts is getting started with a simple daily routine that includes exfoliation. This routine should consist of a cleanser, exfoliant, moisturiser and SPF for the daytime. Of course, if your new to skincare then you’re going to want quick and easy solutions.

More on exfoliation
Exfoliation, which follows cleansing, is a key strategy for clearing breakouts. Exfoliants work by removing dead skin and build up, helping to clear pores. When choosing an exfoliant for your breakouts, it’s best to go for a chemical exfoliant, rather than a physical scrub which can aggravate existing breakouts. Chemical exfoliants, such as Hydroxy Acids, gently dissolve the glue that holds the dead skin cells together, creating a burst of exfoliation.
