Navigating Teenage Skincare


During the teenage years with hormonal changes, skin can become prone to acne. It might become oily; blackheads can appear, whiteheads and even cysts. The good news is that the sooner you can manage these changes the better. Not only will skin feel and look better, but the risk of scarring and marks from acne will be reduced. Of course, there are treatments for acne scarring, but prevention is always the best goal.

Unfortunately, some chemist and supermarket acne treatment products can be drying for skin, and may not really be effective enough.

Skin is the largest organ of the body. It is affected by lifestyle, the food we eat as well as hormones, and how we care for our skin itself.

Because they are passionate about skin wellness at The Mayah Clinic, they are running small group Teenage Skin Schools during the October school holidays.

In these Teenage Skin School sessions, small groups will be taken through an hour long, hands-on program to learn about skin! Dermal therapist Jasmine, and beauty/skin therapist Brodie are experienced in managing acne and will go through:

  • Acne triggers

  • Effective skin care and how products work

  • Simple, effective skin care regime - demonstrating how to cleanse, exfoliate, mask and moisturise

  • Treatments available

  • Diet and how our gut function affects our skin

Attendees will be provided with an information pack, three homecare products and a voucher towards a deep cleansing facial and LED light treatment.

The Skin Schools will run on 3 October and 10 October, and the cost is $99 pp.

Bookings need to be made by calling The Mayah Clinic on 4954 5044. At The Mayah Clinic, a consultation can be made with Dr Holmes if required for medical management of moderate to severe acne.
