My teen’s getting pimples – how can I help? - Eternal Clear

Pimples can cause low self-esteem and be very distressing for teens. Your teen might also be bullied and be called names by classmates at school or college.

So, as a parent, you naturally want to do your best to help your child with acne management. 

Fortunately, there are some proven ways to treat acne in teenagers. 

Have your teen use a gentle cleanser

Look for a facial cleanser that contains natural anti-inflammatories, anti-oxidants and astringents – look for ingredients like beeswax, aloe vera, tea tree oil, and vitamin C, to name a few. These ingredients soothe irritated skin, help prevent acne and keep the skin healthy.

Acne patches

Use our vegan and cruelty-free hydrocolloid acne patches that can shrink the zit overnight. Formulated with Calendula, Centella Asiatica, and tea tree, these easy-to-use acne patches are suitable for all skin tones.

Simply stick the patch on the pimple, take it off after 6-7 hours and moisturize the treated area.

High frequency therapy 

Recommended by dermatologists, high frequency skin therapy lets oxygen travel into your skin and kills pimple-causing bacteria. This saves you hundreds of dollars on salon facial treatments while giving long-lasting results.

Help your teen stay stress-free

Stress is a common reason behind acne, and the teenage years bring lots of stress. There is study, career, looks, society, relationships and much more to deal with.

So, do anything you can to help your child live a stressful life.


Remind your child to use acne treatment

As a parent, it’s your responsibility to help your teen address pimples before they turn into a major problem. 

So, use effective reminders (avoid nagging) that really encourage your child to take care of their skin.

See a dermatologist (if necessary)

There are broadly two types of pimples – mind to moderate acne and severe cystic acne. 

Mild to moderate acne can be treated at home with effective remedies. But cystic acne requires proper medical help. 

A dermatologist can prescribe a regimen suitable for your teen’s skin type, the severity of pimples, and the progression of any scarring.

Pimples are a common and normal problem among teens. Just make sure you get the right treatment at the right time for your child.
