At Shine skin and body Richmond, our approach to skin health starts by identifying our client needs, using in-depth skin consultation and analysis to personalise treatments all based around our specially developed extraction facial technique.
Teenage years can be the hard with all the hormonal changes our body goes through, but it can be made harder by the onset of acne. The main reasons for acne are hormones and genetics.
Androgen hormones increase in both boys and girls during puberty. Androgens make the skin’s oil glands become larger and create more sebum. Which then causes the follicles to become clogged.
Genetics may also be another cause- If your parents had acne, you may have inherited it from them. Also some medications- for example, androgens taken as medicine- epilepsy medication, lithium and prednisone.
It is also a time in life when girls start experimenting with cheap make-up that can lead to acne too.
At Shine we are here to help guide teenagers through these hard years. Explain the importance of homecare, not picking and give them self confidence.
