Teen Skin Care

 

Teen Skin Care

 

Being a teenager can be kinda stressful; it’s a whirlwind of education, the current COVID-19 situations, not being able to be with your friends, so the last thing you need to be worrying about is your skincare regime. To save you the hassle, here is a little regime that we hope will help combat everything from pimples to oily skin, leaving you with a lovely level glow.

 

Knowing Your Skin

The first step of any good skincare regime is understanding your skin. During your teens, your hormone levels spike, which in skin terms equals one thing: oiliness. The main aim of your skincare regime should be dedicated to balancing your skin and controlling oil production. The rising levels of testosterone also increase sebum (oil) production, making breakouts more likely as the buildup of oil blocks your pores and encourages blackheads and pimples to form. Plus, as you go through puberty, you start to produce more keratin (a protein that protects the upper layers of your dermis), which makes your skin thicker, and therefore it contributes to blocked pores.

Ingredients to look forClay to extract oil  Benzoyl Peroxide, which is proven to help break-outs, salicylic acid and AHAs, which clean deep into pores, and tea tree oil and witch hazel, which are naturally antibacterial.

Things to avoid: Food-wise, avoid cow’s milk, and rich and heavy creams (dairy) to help with hormonal breakouts.

 

 

Step 1: Cleanse

As a teenager, the most important skincare step is cleansing,

Cleansing properly will help remove impurities and any excess oil. Start  your day with a cleanser that’s targeted for your skin type, like a foam or gel formula. However, at the end of the day, you should double cleanse to help remove any makeup residue, dirt, oil, or dead skin that’s sitting on your skin. It may seem counterintuitive to use an oil on oily skin, but a cleansing oil will actually remove sebum more effectively as oil attracts oil.

 

Step 2: Tone

Toning is another key step and helps to rebalance the pH levels of your skin, which in turn helps manage oil production. Plus, it’ll tone and tighten your pores, so they’re less likely to become blocked. A good toner will also help remove any lingering makeup residue – you’ll be surprised how you can miss makeup around your hairline! 

 

Step 2: Exfoliate (2-3 times a week)

Keep skin exfoliated due to the hormonal surges that are occurring and leading to blocked pores.Chemical exfoliators containing AHAs and salicylic acid are perfect as they clean deep into your pores, as they’re able to penetrate more deeply (than physical exfoliators) and dissolve the glue that holds together debris in your pore.

However, you should only exfoliate two to three time a week, and be sure to be as gentle as possible. The more pressure you apply when you use physical (grainy) exfoliators, the more likely you are to damage your skin and encourage breakouts (micro scratches on the surface of the skin encourage bacteria to enter)

Step 4: Moisturise

Don’t think that just because your skin is oily you can get away with skipping moisturiser. It may seem counterintuitive, but if you don’t hydrate oily skin, your skin will produce more oil in an effort to compensate for the lack of moisture. This means that the best moisturiser is one that can replenish and hydrate without sitting heavily on your skin. Look for gel moisturisers that are super lightweight and are water-like in texture, as these contain the lowest amount of oil, waxes, and emulsifiers. You can also look for labels that say non-comedogenic and non-acnegenic, as these mean the product will not clog pores or cause breakouts.

Optional: Apply a serum

 

If you feel like one round of moisture isn’t enough, and you want to take your skincare regime to the next level, apply a serum before your moisturiser. Serums contain a high concentration of active ingredients, and the small molecular structure allows it to penetrate the skin on a deeper level. It’s super lightweight so it’ll absorb into your skin easily, lessening the chance of it blocking your pores.

Weekly Skin Care Options

 

Do a Mask

If you get into the habit of doing a mask once a week, your skin will seriously thank you. A clay mask can be amazing for your skin.

Spot Creams

Since teen skin is more prone to pimples, make sure you’re always prepared with a spot treatment to tackle a pimple as soon as you can feel one coming. Look for products that contain salicylic acid, witch hazel, or tea tree as these ingredients will help lower inflammation and reduce acne bacteria in the skin.
