Breakouts can affect anyone, not only kids, but when back to school season hits it’s no surprise that teens get stressed and fear zits from cropping up. According to dermatologist Dr. David Bank, sunscreen is truly important because the sun’s rays can cause overactive sebaceous glands so breakouts are the result. Indeed, many teenagers attribute their zits to pizza, and think that toothpaste can clear up acne. Nothing could be further from the truth! Take a page out of Neutrogena’s good track record, and stock up on the proven Oil-Free Acne Wash and relax.
