Sending Your Kid off To College? How to Make Sure They Take Good Care of Their Skin

One of the things that don’t seem to change in parenting is having to practically babysit your kids; even when they are in college. If your child has acne-prone skin, but they are headed off to college this fall, you may be worried that their acne may go into overdrive and they won’t know what to do. Luckily, Dr. Bertolino has created a list of a few tips that you can send with your college student so that they come back with clearer, healthier skin. Are you ready to learn some more? If so, then read on.

Send them with face wipes

If your teenager hasn’t already gotten into the habit of washing their face before they crash in bed, then they probably aren’t going to do it in college. Your college student is going to have more late nights and less time that they want to do things like wash their face. Make sure that you send them with plenty of face wipes that they can clean their face with. Face wipes are easy, fast, and relatively effective. One thing to remind them though is that face wipes can’t completely replace face wash, so they should at least use face wash when they are in the shower.

Schedule an Appointment with Dr. Bertolino Before They Go

Another thing that you should do is schedule an appointment for them with Dr. Bertolino before they head out of town. Dr. Bertolino will take a closer look at their skin and then put them on the right skincare products. For instance, if your child has acne-prone skin, then Dr. Berotino may recommend a series of treatments to help fight their acne and balance the oil on their skin. Just make sure that your child knows the importance of being consistent when using their new skincare products.

Ultimately, it’s up to your college student if they want to prioritize having good skin, but these tips may also put them on the right track. To learn more, contact our Williamsville office and call us at (716) 633-6100.
