Tried and True Teen Treatments

Unfortunately, there is not just one trigger for teenage acne. It is the result of a multitude of factors – an increase in sebum production, hormone shifts, poor diet, menstrual cycles, personal stress, genetics, and more. Therefore, it is important to note the ingredients and treatments that can give teenagers fast-acting results and help them achieve healthy skin.


LED light therapy is used for combating aging and acne. Red light infiltrates the immune system, thwarting swelling, pain, and redness caused by acne. Blue light attacks propionobacterium acnes – a bacteria that eats sebum and resides deep inside the pores. Light therapy can also be used in conjunction with traditional cleansers and toners, rendering them more effective, in many cases.



Ascorbic acid, or vitamin C, is an optimal defender against environmental toxins and bacteria, aiding in the prevention of acne. It has the capability to break down free radicals, preventing destruction of proteins in the skin, overproduction of sebum, and disruption of pH balance. Ascorbic acid also reduces redness and inflammation and prevents acne scarring due to regeneration of collagen and elastin.



A derivative of vitamin A, retinol is included in acne products because it is easily transported through the bloodstream. Retinol unclogs pores, sloughs off dead skin cells, and promotes rapid cell regeneration. The molecules that make up retinol are small enough to penetrate the skin and reach the dermis, repairing elastin and collagen in the skin and encouraging the elimination of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and acne scarring.
