Can anyone please recommend a brand or a site for skin care for my 12 year old daughter?  She is having lots of break outs and I don’t think the harsh chemicals in most products are helping.  I read the ingredients of the products but can’t understand what most of it is.  I would just like something natural and basic without lots of chemicals, fragrances, etc.  Any tips would be appreciated.

In our house we’ve tried a couple of natural brands specially formulated for teen breakouts. We like SkinGenius (check out or the range of Green People products for teens (called Oy!), available from You might choose to take a look at diet with the help of a nutritionist or naturopath too. I know how tough this can be for young girls to deal with so hope you find a solution that works for your daughter. Good luck x
