Madison and Joseph Whalen

This week we tackle a common problem in adolescents, acne. Specifically we're talking about teen acne. We'll take a look at exactly what acne is from a clinical standpoint and what some of the most common causes of teen acne are.

Then we'll take a look at the psychosocial impact of acne on teens. We'll look at how it can trigger depression, low self-esteem and social withdraw. This can lead to negative impact on education and professional work if left unchecked.

Finally we'll explore twelve simple but helpful ways to help manage acne. From simple face washing, to weather or not to use facial scrubs, how often you should shower and whether or not too much sunlight can make things worse.
