As adults, we know that body odour is totally normal.

Many kids don’t notice their own body odour, so bringing up the topic early can help lessen self-consciousness.
Acne scars can hang about for a very looooong time. But it’s not all doom and gloom. You can reduce the appearance of acne scars with some skincare know-how, a whole lotta’ lurve and some patience. Look for products high in Vitamins C and B3, bio-retinols, AHAs, BHAs and hyaluronic acid to help heal your acne scars.
It may be just us but it seems as though the skincare world has gotten lazy when it comes to products that help blemishes (pimples and acne, that is). Even though there are thousands of products, most use the same rather harsh ingredient: Benzyl Peroxide. Or if you want a natural option: Tea Tree Oil. Yawn!
