Skin Care Advice


Teen-age Skin

Dear Judi;

I am 19 years old and I am starting to breakout with little whiteheads and blackheads in the area below the cheeks and it seems dry but how can that be when I am getting clogged pores, I don't wear makeup and I am using natural products from the health food store and they are natural, I read the labels. I am afraid to try anything for more breakouts and I spend so much money I am broke.



It could be hormones, nerves, genetics. But I would also tell you that just because it's sold in a health food store doesn't mean it's healthy. Here's what I recommend:


If you can afford my soft grains scrub ($35 for a six month supply) it will definitely help diminish whiteheads and blackheads.)

Natural ideas: Wash with oatmeal once a day, just mix a 1/4 cup with plain yogurt, make a paste, and rub in and massage, then rinse with water. Apply the yolk of an egg as a mask for ten minutes; it acts like Retin A without the side affects. Write me if you need more help.



Help for a Teen-ager:

As to your teenage daughter, I have a number of suggestions:

1. She must wash with tea tree oil soap, at least once daily.
2. She can also use either my peppermint oatmeal soap or a green clay soap I have another time during the day.
3. I highly recommend my soft grain scrub, which contains both papaya enzyme as well as glycolic acid, and can start on a cellular level to deep clean the skin and thus eventually eliminate most blackheads and clogged pores that create the blemishes.
4. My glycolic serum is also a helpful product and would be used once a day; it definitely unloosens the cellular level sebaceous oil glands that have become clogged, etc.
5. I also have a special clay mask, which is good to draw out the impurities in the sking and would be used 3-5 times a week. Apply,
put all over face, wait 4 to 6 minutes, until clay begins to harden, then wash off very well, with only tepid water.
6. I also have a beta hydroxy stick, which is a take-along tube perfect for dabbing on blemishes during the day. It is invisible to the eye, contains salycilyic acid, and definitely helps calm the skin down.
You'll find all these products described on my website:
You can also order in this manner.
And if you need further advice for your daughter, feel free to write me at any time.
