Welcome to Kardeen
My name is Kate, and I am 14 years old. I co-founded Kardeen Teen Acne Care with my mom. We decided to launch our skincare line after discovering our shared frustration with acne breakouts at different stages of our lives. Mine as a teenager and my mom as an adult. We discovered a treatment routine that works for both of us and a mutual excitement to share it with friends and family who were experiencing the same difficulty controlling their acne.
I was shocked to learn that acne affects close to 85 percent of teenagers up to 24 years old, and I am one of them. The good news is that acne can be prevented as well as treatable. I noticed my first pimple at 12 years old. It did not really bother me then, but as I got older, I started to have more. First it started out mild, one or two pimples, then it became worse. Like most teenagers, I usually pop my pimples, which results in scars and hyperpigmentation. To make matters worse, I also suffer from eczema, a condition that causes dry, itchy, and inflamed skin, which makes it a double whammy for me. My nose was the main area affected, unlike my cousin who had acne all over his face.
To address my acne problem, I used a combination of medications prescribed by a dermatologist and medication-counter skincare. Some of the products were too harsh for my skin and the combination of the products made acne worse. I noticed that my mom’s skin had cleared up and had a nice glow, so I decided to follow her skin care routine. Within a few weeks, my acne was healing, and I had fewer breakouts. My mom’s skincare routine was quite easy and simple. It includes a mild foam cleanser, followed by an acne treatment gel and an oil-free moisturizer.
When my mom saw the improvement of our skin, we understood how powerful the right routine can be to transform our skin and confidence and that was when Kardeen Teen Acne Care was born.
