Hi- My 15 yo DS has recently developed acne. Any practical suggestions about effective products for a teen BOY? I read through other threads on this, but suggested regimes seemed too involved for most guys to stick with. Unfortunately for him, both his dad and I dealt with acne....genetics are not on his side for this one! Thanks~

He uses them morning and night.
DS1 is 15 and uses generic Clearasil cream and Oxypads. Do they work? Heck, I don't know. He is pretty good about using them routinely, but I honestly don't know what his skin would look like if he didn't use them. Our ped told us to have him wash his face with a bit of shampoo because it cuts oil so well. But my son thought that was dumb advice. He used to get mad at me for buying generics until I had him compare ingredients and he realized the $5 difference was just paying for a brand name. The skin thing is hard for the child and the parent both, I think. Good luck!
