A good basic skincare routine makes for cleaner and calmer skin while navigating through the raging hormones of growing up.

Starting as young as 12 years old can make a difference to your skin quality when you hit your teens and beyond. 

The least you can do is wash your face twice daily with a gentle cleanser, like the Deep Pore Cleansing Foam and apply sunscreen regularly.

For drier skin, use a non-comedogenic moisturiser, like the Blemish Clarifying Lotion.

For the occasional zit, there are over-the-counter benzoyl peroxide creams and zinc-based drying lotions.

However, use them with care as they can overdry the skin and cause more irritations.

For gentler, yet effective alternatives, try:

Blemish Control Essence -an anti-bacterial botanical essence that prevents pimples by balancing oil production


Blemish Clarifying Lotion – a gentle lightweight lotion made of natural ingredients, it speeds up the healing of pimples and redness, all without drying the skin.

Having clear, healthy and natural-looking skin is best.

For those who want to experiment with colours, get non-comedogenic (i.e., won’t clog pores) makeup that won’t trigger acne in most people.

Never go to sleep with make-up on (gently double-cleanse) and don’t share make-up or make-up brushes.

Pimples are an inflammatory skin condition, with angry, red and painful bumps.

Foods like wheat, dairy, sugar and processed foods drive inflammation, while late nights deprive our bodies of a chance to rest and reset our stress hormones. 

So, eat well, sleep well and your skin will be well.

Antioxidants – Brightly coloured veggies and berries

Zinc, Magnesium and other minerals – Nuts, seeds and eggs

Omega 3 – Fatty fish like salmon, tuna, sardines and mackerel, avocado, chia and flax seeds

Probiotics – Kombucha, kimchi, miso and tempeh

Wheat – Pasta and noodles, pizza, bread, bun, croissant, cake and biscuits

Alternatives: Brown rice, quinoa, cauliflower rice, shirataki noodles, bakes using non-wheat flour like coconut and almond 

Dairy – Cow’s milk, ice cream, cakes and pastries 

Sugar – Bubble tea, fizzy soft drinks (including the zeroes), sweets and chocolate 


Our body rests and recuperates best between 10 pm and 2 am, due to our circadian rhythm.

All other factors equal, someone who sleeps early will feel and look better than another who sleeps after midnight.

Try to achieve 7 to 8 hours of a good night’s rest every day.

A good sweat clears out the pores.

For active and athletic teens, use a gentle cleanser to clean up as soon as possible after the sport ends. Don’t let dirt, grime and sunscreen clog up the pores

Be careful not to clean or scrub excessively as this will irritate the skin and cause breakouts.

For those with more than a few pimples, especially recurring or body ones, then it’s time to consult the doctor.

They may prescribe medicated creams or even start oral treatments.

Or you can consider medical-grade facials or lasers to stabilise the skin and blast away the blemishes.
