Acne Age

Skin care problems. Yes, that's what this is all about. Oops, not mine -not yet!  Although some age spots are slowly peeping already (yikes!) Most of you know that my three nieces (ages 12, 11 and 9) are presently staying with my husband and me. They moved here in America, from the Philippines, and are staying for the duration of the school year, and perhaps beyond (depending on how things work). My husband and I are thrilled to have them. There are some adjustments to be made, since we are so use to just "us." We do not have kids of our own (yet). Some adjustments include the need to have planned menu and available snacks among other things -teehee. Recently, another concern came up, acne!

The thing is, I do not know anything about acne. I had some when I was growing up, but it's the type that disappears with plain soap and water. I myself use basic skin care products, more like for hygiene than for cosmetic purposes, so there goes my knowledge about acne (practically none). One of my nieces have tiny red pimples that gets irritated every now and then, not all at once. It's as if the pimples agree on a schedule on whose turn it is to swell and scare us -yikes! Kidding aside, she diligently washes her face thinking it might be dirt that infects the pores of her skin, but with the pattern that I just mentioned am seriously considering checking out some acne products. I get scared when they swell. You guys know anything about acne?

One of the things that I am really thankful for is having a great skin. I never had any problem with pimples where I was growing up except for the occasional breakout week before my period. And that's all about it.
