As a parent, you want to make sure your kids are staying healthy and skincare is an important part of their wellness routine. Teaching your teens about skincare is a great way to help them manage their skin now and create positive habits that can benefit them as they age. Use these tips to make sure your teens understand the importance of caring for their skin.
Keep Your Teen’s Skincare Routine Simple
It may be tempting to buy dozens of skincare products for your teens, but since their skin is sensitive and their bodies are changing, they only need a few skincare products.
Their skincare routines should include a gentle cleanser such as FaceDoctor Rejuvenation Soap; a toner to balance sebum production; and a lightweight moisturizer. You could also include an acne treatment to address blemishes.
Take Care of Their Acne
Sebum production increases during puberty, and this can lead to acne breakouts. Remind your teens not to pick at acne, and avoid touching their face to prevent bacteria entering clogged pores. Use FaceSurgeon’s Medicated Soap to prevent infection and future acne breakouts.
Teach Your Teens About SPF
Protect your teens’ sensitive skin by encouraging them to apply sunscreen every day throughout the year. It is important they wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher, which can protect against both UVB and UVA rays.
Encourage a Healthy Lifestyle
Ensure that your child drinks water and eats fruits and vegetables so they can stay hydrated and well-nourished. Dehydrated skin appears dull and dry, which could increase the risk of breakouts.
