It’s grocery time and my boys excitedly and hurriedly get their own facial scrub before I could even make my complete round at the first lane of the supermarket. Two of them are in their teens already and sadly, they are experiencing some acne problems.
I guess puberty, hormonal change, and personal hygiene seem to go hand in hand. It is not only the increased hormones due to puberty that cause teenager’s skin to breakout. As acne is caused when the pores of the skin are clogged with excess oil, bacteria then breed on these oily grounds.
I’ve experienced acne in my teenage years as well and it somehow affected my confidence. I do not want the same thing to happen to my boys so I gathered them and had a short discussion about acne.
