If dealing with our own skin care regime was not enough, now we have to deal with our children’s skin issues and they are still not interested in dealing with it.
My daughter is still not at a stage that she gives her pimples any importance but I know that will soon change so in the mean time I am helping her to deal with it now and not let it get worst with time.
I think it is never too young to learn the importance of how to take care of your skin, and the earlier they learn how to, the better it will be to maintain healthy skin when they get older. Also, things that you don’t take care of now, may only get worst later on and that is when out tweens will really begin to care about how they look. I don’t obsess about looks, but our skin is like the rest of our bodies, we want to be healthy.
My daughter gets a lot of pimples on her forehead, luckily, she does not have bangs since her hair can get oily and that could only exacerbate her pimples. She takes after her mom.
Since I know my daughter is not going to be discipled enough to deal with putting on creams and stuff, also I don’t want her to be using products that are not that necessary at this time, I bought my daughter a face cleanser to wash her face when she takes a shower. It’s simple enough to handle, even though I have to always remind her to wash her face, and it has helped to fight her pimples.
The cleanser I bought is the L’Oreal Paris Go 360 Clean, Anti-Breakout Facial Cleanser, and it has really worked out for her skin. It was recommended to me by my sister who bought it for my nephew which has left him with clear skin. The interesting part is that it comes with a scrublet (an exfoliate pad) that you push out of the bottle so they can use it to clean their face more efficiently. From time to time I soak it in hot water and some soap just to clean it, I feel that it may can accumulate dirt, but that is just me.
I recommend that if your child starts to get pimples, teach them not to scratch it, my daughter loooves to scratch herself and I don’t want her to have scars that may make her feel self-conscious in the future and to wash their faces to avoid oil build up and remove dirt that contributes to blackheads and pimples. We all have to start sometime, might as well start early. Also try out products, maybe the L’Oreal doesn’t work for your child, thankfully we have a lot of options to find the product that work the best for their skin.
