Now that I have two granddaughters who are almost teenagers I thought I would put together some teen skin care tips. It's never too early to start thinking about the importance of a good skin care routine.
One of the most important things to remember about teen skin care is that what you put into your body is more important than anything you put on your face. The appearance and condition of your skin is also influenced by genetics, hormones, your lifestyle and your skin care routine. It's a good idea to start with the basics and experiment until you find the skin care products that suit you and your skin best.
It's rare for teens to have dry skin, so usually the best cleansers are the oil-free cleansers. Choose one that doesn't dry your skin out. Lather up, concentrating on the oily T-zone area, then rinse away with warm water.
If you have normal or oily skin, use a toner. Facial wipes are an easy and quick way to clean your skin in a pinch.
Even oily skins need moisture, but in hot, humid weather you may wish to skip moisturizing in the morning and use an oil-free sunscreen instead. In the evening, choose a light moisturizing lotion, particularly in areas that tend to dry out, like your cheeks.
If your skin is dry, use a moisturizer with a higher oil content at night— Products used on the face should generally be unscented.
Pore-cleansing, exfoliating masks are a great skin care product for teens as they clean and purify open pores and rid the skin of dead skin cells.
