Tired of breakouts, blackheads and oily T-zone? Ban blemishes and build good skin care habits with chemical-free organic products.

The No. 1 Teenage Skin Problem – excess oiliness and acne. Hormone levels are up and skin reacts with increased activity of oily glands, which in turn cause breakouts. The acne-causing bacteria eats (lives on) the fatty acids found in skin sebum, therefore increased oiliness often goes hand-in-hand with blemishes, whiteheads or blackheads. For some teens, it's an occasional pimple while others might suffer from a chronic condition known as acne vulgaris. We suggest the most appropriate MÁDARA products for teenage skin needs. 

DAILY CLEANSING

DEEP CLEANSING

MÁDARA Organic Skincare Oil-to-Milk Scrub, Detox Mask and AHA PEEL Mask

Regular skin exfoliation and cleansing with masks is one of the best ways to control acne. Oil sticks dead skin cells together, leading to build-up and clogged pores. Exfoliators and masks help to clear up the skin surface. Just keep in mind it’s important to prefer well-formulated and gentle cleansers that don’t damage and dry the skin. Overly aggressive cleansing might lead to dehydration which results in increased oil production and more breakouts.

FIRST DEODORANT

MÁDARA Organic Skincare natural roll-on deodorants

Excess sweating is a very common problem for many teens, and again – it’s triggered by the changing hormone levels. It is important to know the difference between deodorants and antiperspirants. Deodorants neutralize the smell by killing the odor-generating bacteria. Antiperspirants try to prevent sweating by blocking the pores. The majority of mass market products are antiperspirants, based on synthetic compounds and contains synthetic fragrances.  Choose natural deodorants instead.
