Teen angst

LEARNING how simple natural remedies can help in adolescence will stand a teenager in good stead for the rest of their life. Treating common problems naturally, without resorting to strong medication, reduces the chances of lifelong trouble.

Teenage acne usually arises from hormonally influenced hyperactivity of the oil-producing glands in the skin. People with acne often have trouble metabolising fats and carbohydrates, which is why it's important to cut down on stodgy food and sweets, and increase your intake of fresh fruit and vegetables.

Palmarosa essential oil has a balancing effect on oily skin. Neal's Yard Remedies does a palmarosa facial wash (£9 for 100ml), or you can just use a few drops of the essential oil in some warm water.
