Teenager’s skincare routine: following the right steps
Skin in young people doesn’t need too many steps or products: forget toner, richer creams and illuminating serum. You have to build a skincare routine that is effective, easy and quick. In this way, it is easier for teens to be consistent.
There are three essential steps in the right skincare routine, for every age: cleansing, hydrating, protecting from the sun damage with spf. Let’s find out what are the right products for teenage skin.
Teenager’s skincare routine: how to choose the right cleanser
Cleansing is one the most important steps in the skincare routine: if done in the right way, with the most suited products, it can transform your skin! It’s important for teenagers to do it with the best products from the start: usually teens skin can be acneic or with blemishes, so you can choose purifying or sebum-regulating cleanser. If the skin is more sensitive and delicate, you can use gentle and hydrating cleanser.
It’s always better to choose a product with an easy use, that carries out its goal with the minimum effort and without hitch. Otherwise, the routine will be given up quickly.
Teenager’s skincare routine: how to choose the right moisturizer
Although teenage skin can be subjected to hormone imbalances, sebum’s overproduction and blackheads and blemishes, hydrating can’t be forgotten. Avoiding moisturizer to not feel the skin greasy is a frequent error in this type of skincare: you have to choose the right hydrating cream for the skin type, with a lighter texture with purifying and sebum regulating active. In summer you can replace the moisturizer with a hydrating or purifying serum with also hydrating properties under sunscreen.
The importance of face masks in a teenager’s routine
A great help in teenagers’ skin care is the frequent use of face masks alone or in multimasking, combining hydrating masks and purifying ones. They can be applied before an instagram’s selfie and kept in place while watching a youtube video. Once a week it’s good to do a mechanical or enzymatic scrub, suitable for the teens’s skin type.
