Experts say that pre-teen acne is on the rise.

While it’s highly common for teens to have acne, more children are also suffering from breakouts, say dermatologists. Over the years, more younger children between the ages 7 to12 are getting acne on their faces.

Experts say that it is because puberty is happening at a younger age. Puberty brings about many changes including acne, growth spurts, and hormonal changes. If left untreated, severe acne can lead to permanent scars or darker skin. Hyperpigmentation marks on a child can be more than just a physical change.

Acne can have a  tremendous emotional burden on preteens who have to deal with looking different from their peers.

Here are some acne eliminating tips to make growing up a little bit easier.

#1 Reduce Toxins

Reduce your body’s toxin levels by removing processed foods from your diet. Processed foods contain artificial dyes, saturated fats, high levels of sodium and sugar. Eliminate processed

Instead, eat foods that eat foods that are high in fiber like beans, broccolis and brussels sprouts. These help to eliminate toxins through the colon.

#2  Don’t Pop Pimples

I repeat, do not pop your pimples no matter how frustrating it might seem. Popping pimples will always leave a long-lasting scar. Squeezing your blemishes will only make them bigger and more red.

# 3 Natural Remedies

Try out natural remedies. Apply a thin layer of raw honey to your face. Raw honey is antibacterial and high in antioxidants. Leave the mask on for a few minutes to remove dirt and grime from deep within your pores.

You can also try dabbing tea tree oil sparingly on blemishes. This will reduce their size and appearance.

Tea tree oil soap also works very well on most skins.
