ACNE TARGETS TEENS
Because of 'raging harmones' during puberty, which increase the amount of sebum that glands produce,
teens are more likely to face a cranky complexion than any other age group. Acne doesn't play
favourites--breakouts cause aggro for both boys and girls.
If someone is acne-prone early on (8-11 years old)*, this may mean that symptoms will be more
severe in their teenage years. Early treatment is key to helping control symptoms and
prevent acne from spiraling out of control.
Acne may last 5-10 years, and can continue into adulthood. A number of factors can play a role in the
development of acne, including genetics, stress, diet and hormones.
Whether you get occasional breakouts or are fighting full-on acne, put your best face forward with a consistent, effective skincare routine: new Positively Clear 3-Step Acne Skincare Solution.
