Establishing a good skincare routine is so important when you’re a teenager. It can seem like your skin is out of balance during puberty. Acne and oiliness are common concerns. Here’s your guide to the ultimate skincare routine for tweens and teens.
Teen Skin Care: Revealing Awesome Skin
Teen skin routines can incorporate products that give your skin a healthy glow, not an oily sheen. Look for cleansers and moisturizers that have the most natural ingredients. Estheticians at all-natural skincare spas can guide you in the right direction. They can also help you create a skincare routine that’s just right for you and your specific skin concerns.
Skin starts to change even when you’re a tween. This is when you might see acne starting to pop up around the chin and on the jawline. Skin also tends to start looking more oily as sebum production ramps up.
Keep it Simple and Fresh
Teen skin care routines don’t need to be complicated. They should be as simple as possible so you’ll get excited about washing your face.
First step: cleanse. This washes away oil and bacteria, setting the stage for freshness. Use a super-gentle cleanser that doesn’t strip the skin of its good oils while getting rid of the bad ones. Natural skin care products clean without harmful chemicals that can irritate the skin.
Second step: moisturize. Don’t worry about super heavy moisturizers. A light moisturizer that hydrates the skin is perfect. Parents might also look for moisturizers that have sunscreen in them. A good skincare routine is important, and so are sun smarts.
Looking for a little extra? Think about exfoliating, removing makeup, and treating the acne.
Regular exfoliating promotes skin cell turnover. Skin is still pretty tender when you’re a tween or teen, so don’t exfoliate every day. Once or twice a week is plenty to start.
Removing your makeup is also important and at any age. Unremoved makeup can build up in the skin and cause even more breakouts. Sharing makeup can also be a culprit. Everyone’s skin is different, and sharing makeup only shares the bacteria around.
Facials and spending time at the spa can be a special treat for deep cleaning the skin. It’s also just plain fun. We use Eminence Organics skincare products for the highest quality results. Book an appointment today and discover how we can balance and support your skin journey.
