Use Of Apple Cider Vinegar In Children Aged 14 Years?
Is it okay for 14 years old to use apple cider vinegar to remove brittle?
Bruntusan is a term used to describe the surface of the skin that feels smooth and irregular. It can be caused by several things such as clogged pores, blackheads, irritation of the facial products used (not compatible with a facial product), purging, milia, and keratosis pilaris.
Apple cider vinegar is actually not intended for skin use and is not an ingredient that belongs to a cosmetic grade. Many women have started using apple cider vinegar because it contains acids that can help remove dead skin cells so they don't clog pores, brighten the face, and hopefully help treat acne. However, because it is not a cosmetic grade product, the safety level for the skin has not been studied much. Apple cider vinegar is irritating, so if the skin is sensitive or if it is used inappropriately, it can irritate the skin, this is a sign that the skin is red, sore, sensitive to sunlight, blisters, peeling, and even dark marks.
If you want to use acid for your face, you should choose one which is a cosmetic grade. There have been many local products and foreign brands that provide skincare with acid content, such as glycolic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid, mandelic acid, kojic acid. Skincare that contains this acid is expected to be more friendly to the skin than apple cider vinegar which is not cosmetic grade.
However, it needs to be considered again about Anisa's age. At the age of 14, skin regeneration tends to be very good. Skin regeneration is every 28 days. Because the regenrasion is still quite good, actually cid doesn't need to be used. Very mild acids can be started in your 20s. In special conditions, acid can be used at 17 years of age, for example, excessive oil production can be helped by salicylic acid. Under that age should not use acid without advice and supervision of a dermatologist.
If currently Anisa is experiencing breakouts, Anisa can try the following tips first:
Clean your face with a hypoallergenic facial cleanser twice a day, a facial cleanser with mild salicylic acid content can still be used, choose products that are formulated for teenagers.
Try not to wear makeup too thick or too often
Make sure the face is really clean before going to bed
Avoid touching your face before washing your hands
Avoid squeezing bruntusan
Use all cosmetics or skincare that are labeled non-comedogenic and hypoallergenic as much as possible
Use moisturizer and sunscreen for teens
Avoid rubbing facial skin or using facial scrubs too hard when bruntusan
Get used to a healthy lifestyle with adequate rest, drinking lots of water, regular exercise
If Anisa feels that the bruntusan is difficult to remove or is getting more and more, I suggest that Anisa check with a dermatologist so that further examination of Anisa's skin condition can be carried out so that the doctor can provide the best treatment for Anisa.
