Are Acne Treatments Drying Out Your Tween's Skin?

By February 22, 2014

Follow me on:

Your tween is starting to develop blackheads and mild pimples, so you head out to the drug store and buy him an acne treatment. And he is actually using it!

Everything is going great until your tween starts to complain about dry skin. That's when you notice the redness and irritation. Yikes!

Tween skin is still young and sensitive, so many of the OTC acne products available can irritate their skin. What's a parent to do?

If OTC acne products are drying out your tween's skin, try this:

  • Try using the acne treatments every other day, rather than every day.
  • Have your tween use their acne treatments only at night, and a non-medicated cleanser in the morning.
  • Don't forget the moisturizer! The moisturizer that you use for your skin isn't the best choice for your tween. Instead, get him a non-medicated, oil-free and noncomedogenic brand. Hypo-allergenic and fragrance free is a plus. (I personally love Purpose, but shop around to find one that suits your tween. She's more likely to use it if she likes it.)
  • If your tween's skin is excessively irritated, stop using the product. Give your doctor a call if the reaction seems severe, or your child's skin isn't improving even after discontinuing use.
