  1. Skin changes –Some go through the puberty with acne formation on their faces. This is because of the production increase of oil and sweat glands. The acne will show off not just on your face, but to various body parts too like the back, neck and chest. Just be sure you keep your body clean to prevent skin breakouts.


  1. Body odor –Teens may suffer from body odor too. This is because of the hormones and the increased level of sweat being produced by the glands. It is not usual to find body odor which is not even there before. This may be prevented by keeping yourself clean and fresh all the time.
