How to Prevent Acne for Teenager

Every conscientious mom wants to know how to prevent acne for the teenager in her home. The best method is to embrace a quality skin care routine that includes gentle, natural ingredients like Prep U’s Blem Pen.

Prep U was founded to create a product line of self-care products for young men between the ages of 8 to 17 years old. Our goal at Prep U is preparation. We prepare moms and dads to teach their sons about preparing for their days and their futures.

The magic ingredients in the Blem Pen are all-natural and provide benefits that range from anti-inflammation to anti-microbial, astringent, and hydration.  You can pronounce and recognize the items on our ingredient list.

  • Spring water
  • Aloe
  • Witch hazel extract
  • Vegetable glycerin
  • Phenoxyethanol
  • Chickweed extract
  • Cleavers extract
  • Gotu Kola extract
  • Tea tree essential oil
  • Grapefruit essential oil
  • Geranium essential oil
  • Lavender essential oil
  • Coriander essential oil

What you won’t find in our products are all those nasty, dangerous, commonly seen ingredients in OTC products. We abstain from using parabens, dyes, sulfates, aluminum, artificial fragrances, phthalates, GMOs, nanoparticles, or gluten. Furthermore, we don’t test on animals or buy ingredients from companies who do. We’re dermatologist recommended, vegan, and safe for sensitive skin.

Witch hazel, one of the primary ingredients in the Blem Pen, is an extract from the Hamamelis virginiana shrub. This plant grows natively in Asia and North America and has been used for centuries to treat skin irritation and remove oil and sebum. Added to the Blem Pen, it clears the pores and sets the table for clear skin.

That’s not all witch hazel can do for skin, though! It also calms redness and inflammation, so those angry zits aren’t as obvious or painful. If you can stop the irritation and pain, perhaps you can keep him from picking at the bumps. Popping and picking at blemishes can spread them in the short term and leave him with scars that will continue to haunt him well into his middle years.

Since witch hazel can be drying, we make sure to add plenty of hydration from aloe and select essential oils like lavender and coriander. Balanced skin is key. Over-drying can cause the skin to have a massive reaction in the opposite direction, breaking out even worse.

The Blem Pen Encourages Use

As most boy-moms understand, “you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink.” While you can stock his bathroom with all the self-care products in the world, take him to the dermatologist, and repeatedly remind him to wash his face, some guys are stubborn, especially teens.

The Prep U Blem Pen is a convenient, portable size. He can have one in his sports bag, backpack, pencil case, bathroom, nightstand, etc. Whenever he feels that blemish coming, he can apply a bit of a formulation that can help in the fight against the coming zits.

Prep U offers skin care products for your boy that will help manage oil, sweat, bacteria, inflammation, and redness related to acne. Help him avoid some of the worst struggles a teenager faces with careful guidance about how to prevent acne and provision of quality products like the Blem Pen. Learn more by contacting us online.
