With acne affecting 80% of adolescents, it’s a common problem they are likely to face at some point between the age of 10 and 20.

Being a teen is a difficult time anyway, but being a teen with acne can be the difference between a happy out going individual to one which feels insecure and socially introvert.

Replenix Acne Solutions Acne Clearing System
I’ve included this in my choice of top products because this really is the ultimate acne fighting package!
Here’s what’s included;
The gentle but powerful foaming facial wash
This contains not one but 2 of the best acne fighting ingredients, 2% salicylic acid. Related to aspirin, salisylic acid is fantastic for reducing inflammation.
It is also oil soluble so can penetrate deep down into pores where it’s needed the most.
And 2% glycolic acid removes impurities and acne causing bacteria whilst copper and Zinc replace moisture to keep the skin balanced.
Salicylic acid and Glycolic acid exfoliating pads.
Exfoliation is such an important stage of acne skin care as acne is caused by the pores becoming clogged with a build up of excess oil, dead skin cells and bacteria.
It’s important to remove dead skin daily to prevent this build up within the pores.
5% Benzoyl Peroxide repair and protecting spot treating Acne gel.
This penetrates deeply into the skin, to replenish and restore, repair and correcting existing blemishes and breakouts. It improves the skins’ clarity and overall appearance.
Retinol is amazing for acne prone skin as it increases cellular turnover improving the appearance of large pores and controlling oil.
It also contains hyaluronic acid and green tea for increasing hydration within the skin without making the skin oily.
Caffeine and antioxidants protects the skin and reduces redness.
Retinol should only be applied at nighttime.
This is the perfect package to make sure you have everything that is going to work together for perfect acne control.

I had to include The Acnezine solution kit.

This organic product uses the benefits of natural tea tree and willow bark to calm and soothe acne skin.
Whilst anti inflammatory and oil absorbing salicylic acid exfoliate dead skin cells and reduce the appearance of enlarged pores.
This one uses a 3 stage approach with a purifying deep cleansing wash to remove the excess oil and deep clean pores.
A spot targeting moisturisers, targets spots and blemishes for clearer skin.
The third stage is a 5 in 1 treatment gel which not only encourages cell renewal but clears and calms spots and redness too.
I hope you find my suggestions helpful, as-well as a good skincare regime I always say with acne it’s important to keep a clean diet, low in sugar and sometimes even diary can help too.
If you find your teens acne isn’t improving with over the counter skincare it’s always worth seeing your GP for advice, for severe acne there are stronger topical creams, antibiotics and other acne specific medications which can be prescribed to help.
