I admit, when it comes to zits, we forgo the "more naturally." We give to the zit creams and washes because they work (for us) and it's just such a hit on their self-esteem to have zits.
My DD 13 is going through an extremely greasy stage. A few weeks ago she got a couple pimples and the skin on and around her nose was sorta wierd and bumpy. It looked as if she were going to start a full fledged acne break-out but we seem to have nipped it in the bud for the time being. I bought her some nuetrogena acne face wash to use daily and an apricot scrub to use once a week. When she sees the start of a zit, she uses a nuetrogena cream on that spot. I noticed this week her complextion has been perfect and no more greasy looking. I think it also helped that we found a good anti-grease shampoo for her too. She'd wash her hair every morning and by noon, it looked like she hadn't washed in a week. I know it was not helping with the forhead zits! The new stuff keeps it under control.
For a 9-year-old, you might try Citicil products. They are extremely gentle washes. I know they have some acne stuff but the wash itself is "soap free" which I've heard is best for acne.
|Can you share? What shampoo did you find? We're having greasy hair issues here!|
I was reading through this and had a weird flash of My Big Fat Greek Wedding. "Just put some Windex on it"
I can't believe I didn't see anyone post anything about dairy. Cutting dairy has helped my adult acne. I get terrible cystic acne if I eat dairy. If he is a big milk drinker/cheese eater, could be the culprit. It is the hormones in the milk, even if it is organic, there are lots of hormones.
Before I cut dairy, I tried all the natural stuff, while tto was ok it could not hold its on against benzoyl peroxide and from all I have read since it does not absorb into the skin/bloodstream like salicylic acid, which is another typical treatment.
Note: I can have little bits of dairy, like some chocolate or a small dessert made with butter, but if I eat more than a bite of ice cream or pizza or anything cheesy w/in 24hrs its terrible!!!
