As a parent with an almost teen, skin breakouts are on the horizon. As teen skin can be delicate, I was looking for a skincare solution that would be gentle on teen skin, whilst effectively treating breakouts and blemishes.
Enter a favourite brand from my time as a teen, with updated technology! Using Witch Hazel, long known for its astringent and healing properties, to help purify and refresh skin, the Biore Witch Hazel range is perfect for teen skin. The refreshing new look Biore Witch Hazel Pore Clarifying Toner, with Salicylic Acid helps to control oil, and deep cleans pores, helping to prevent breakouts. For pores that need an extra deep clean, where breakouts and blackheads are occurring, the new Biore Witch Hazel Ultra Deep Cleansing Pore Strips are brilliant. These pore strips use Witch Hazel work to draw out 2 x more pore clogging dirt than the original Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Strips, helping to remove blackheads for a super clean. As skin with acne is already irritated and sensitive, it is recommended not to use these on acne blemishes or sunburned skin – if in doubt consult your doctor, and always consult your doctor before use if your teen is taking any acne or other skin medication. Biore Witch Hazel Pore Clarifying Toner 236ml RRP $8.99. Biore Witch Hazel Ultra Deep Cleansing Pore Strips Pack of 6 Strips RRP $9.99.
We used these on teen skin that is just starting to see signs of oiliness, and some very small breakouts, and it worked so well. The Toner gently removed excess oil, and you could see the clogging dirt the Pore Strips removed on the strip. The few minor blemishes were noticeably reduced after only three days, and gone after a week. At under $20 for the pair, this duo is well worth trying for problem teen skin, especially with school holidays here or coming up – clearer skin for Term 3 could be just the trick.
