Is CeraVe good for teen acne?
Teen acne can be difficult to treat because teenagers’ hormones are not in balance. They are in a period of flux with little stability. In addition, some teens lack dedication when it comes to their skincare and personal grooming. As a result, (and understandably so) some parents opt out for more cost effective skincare products for their teen’s skincare.
“Is CeraVe good for my teen’s acne?”
CeraVe has a great range within their cleansing line. Cleansing is one of the most important steps when treating acne at home. They have 3 cleansers to select from.
The mildest one is the Foaming Facial cleanser, which contains hyaluronic acid and niacinamide. This combination will ensure your teen’s skin is not dry and dehydrated after, and also helps to calm some of the inflammation associated with acne.
The second option is the Renewing SA cleanser. This cleanser contains salicylic acid which is great for stripping away excess oil, and also for seeping into the pores and clearing them out. This option is best for teens that have very congested skin, blackheads, or thicker texture in the T-zone. Keep in mind that it can be a little too drying for teens that have more of a combination to oily skin type.
Last we have the Acne Foaming Cream wash. This cleanser is actually going to treat teen acne. It should be reserved only for those with moderate to severe acne skin types. It contains 10% benzoyl peroxide. Therefore, not only will it help clean and clear away the oil, but it will have antiseptic effects on the skin. In other words, it will clear away the bacteria causing the breakouts. This is an excellent option for teens that have pustules and pimples. Not only do they get the clearing and healing benefits, they will also help prevent future breakouts due to the antibacterial effects.
