Does Your Teen Forget Acne Treatments When They Leave Home?

Try This Simple Tip

Does your teen split time between your house and her other parent's place? Maybe she spends a lot of time at her grandparent's house, or at the place of a really good friend.

Instead of having her carry her acne treatments back and forth, pick up a second set to leave at her "home away from home." It cuts down on the hassle of packing it every time she's ready to go, and eliminates the chance she'll forget to take the treatments along.

No matter which acne treatment your teen uses, consistent use is very important. Skipping doses isn't helpful.

The extra set of acne treatments is super useful, and will help keep your teen's acne treatment on track.
