Do's For Acne Skin Care 

1. Keep Your Face Clean

Cleaning your face is essential. Wash your face twice a day with a mild cleanser. This eliminates debris, oil, and perspiration that block pores and cause outbreaks. Consider using our Face Wash with Salicylic Acid and Thymol T-essence. It's a gentle, sulphate-free cleanser created with Thymol T-essence and Salicylic Acid. It's clinically proven to reduce acne-causing bacteria and soothe acne in three days. It restores moisture, leaving skin hydrated with Pentavitin molecules.

2. Use Acne Treatments 

Use the best acne products for teens that fight acne-causing germs and minimise inflammation. Be consistent with treatments for optimal outcomes. It’s best to try spot corrector treatments like Spot Corrector for Active Acne with Salicylic Acid. It makes use of potent actives and a blend of hard-working natural ingredients. This spot corrector eliminates 99% of acne-causing bacteria, lightens dark spots, and heals blemishes. It is infused with Salicylic acid, Niacinamide, Zinc Sebum, and Shatavari. It's keratolytic properties help unclog pores, and its anti-bacterial benefits fight off acne-causing bacteria

3. Regularly Moisturise 

Even oily skin needs moisturisation. Maintain your skin’s moisture levels with a non-comedogenic moisturiser. This reduces oil production, which may cause breakouts. Try our Face Moisturiser with Niacinamide and SPF 25 PA+++. It reduces oxidative stress caused by the external environment and tackles redness and inflammation of the skin. It improves your skin texture and controls excess sebum.

4. Stay Hydrated 

Drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydratd. Eight glasses of water daily will help eliminate toxins and cleanse your skin.

5. Balance Your Diet 

Your diet affects your skin. Balance your diet with fruits, vegetables, lean meats, and healthy grains. Limit sugar and junk food, which can cause acne.

6. Get Enough Rest 

Sleep is essential for skin and general health. Sleep 8-10 hours a night to recover and renew your skin. Stress from sleep deprivation may aggravate acne, especially on acne-prone skin.

7. Use Sunscreen 

Use sunscreen regularly. Choose a non-comedogenic sunscreen to block UV rays without blocking pores. Sunscreen also prevents acne scars from darkening.

Don'ts For Acne Skin Care 

1. Do Not Touch Your Face Often 

Your hands are susceptible to multiple germs and when you touch your face, these are likely to get on your face skin, leading to acne. Additionally, if you already have acne, popping pimples or touching in general can further aggravate the bumps.

2. Do Not Pop or Pick Pimples 

Picking pimples may cause scars and further outbreaks. It may also drive germs deeper into the skin, inflaming it. Let acne heal independently, or use acne spot treatments to speed up the process.

3. Stay Away from Harsh Products 

Harsh products that strip skin of natural oils can cause discomfort and breakouts. Avoid alcohol-based products, perfumes, and harsh scrubs. Instead, use mild, skin-friendly products on your face.

4. Avoid Over-Exfoliating 

Exfoliating removes dead skin cells; however, over-exfoliating may cause acne. Gentle exfoliants should only be used two to three times a week, like our Weekly Warrior Scrub with Papain Enzyme + AHA + Natural Cellulose. It provides dual exfoliation with both chemical and physical exfoliators like AHA (Lactic Acid) and Papain Enzyme, which are ideal for sensitive, acne-prone skin.

5. Avoid Heavy Makeup 

Putting on a lot of makeup can clog your pores and worsen the acne. Choose makeup that doesn't clog pores, and remember to remove it before bedtime.


Teen acne management requires appropriate skincare and lifestyle changes. Clean your face, treat acne, remain hydrated, and don't touch it. Follow these tips to keep your skin clean and healthy, and remember that patience and persistence lead to progress.
