Please don't patronize me. I am a Highly qualified and highly experienced therapist asking for advice.I don’t think an 8 year old needs “more” from a dfash wash. You are probably stripping the skin. He’s getting oily and spots because he is 8 and you are getting him to use skin care Don’t use anything thing on an 8 year old skin. Just water.
Oh absolutely, which is why I'm on looking for advice. I did edit my comment to say, more often than not he uses just a little wash mit/face cloth etc to wash. I have been monitoring this for the last 6 months. He is getting hormonal, growing a lot and his skin has become this way. I want to nip it in the bud. Not by stripping his skin, not by scrubbing/exfoliating or anything in between, but by using a suitable, gentle wash in the mornings that will stop this build up on his skin!I’m not patronising I’m giving you my advice. I would stop an 8 year old from using any skin care. Definitely should not be using a cleanser day and night. The aveeno Baby facewash if for itchy eczema skin on a baby. So that’s making him oily and spotty. Just because you’re a therapist doesn’t make you right.
