Do Kids Need Skincare?
As parents, it’s important to understand the changing needs of our pre-teens and teens, especially when it comes to taking care of their skin. With the right skincare routine, we can help our tweens and teens maintain healthy skin while boosting their confidence.
Starting a skincare routine at a young age will help pre-teens get ahead of the game when puberty hits and their skin starts to change. With a simple routine in place, they will be better prepared to handle the changes and potential skin issues that come with growing up.
We understand that taking care of a tween or teen’s skin can be daunting – there are so many factors to consider! That’s why we’ve designed a range of skincare products tailored specifically for the needs of pre-teens. Our products are designed to be gentle on the skin and formulated with natural, nourishing ingredients that can help keep skin looking healthy and hydrated.
Where to start?
Step 1: A pre-teen skincare routine should start with a cleanser.
The cleanser removes any excess dirt or oils that have built up on the skin throughout the day. Kids have more sensitive skin than adults, so it is best to start with a gentle cleanser made for kids rather than a cleanser targeted at treating specific skin issues like acne, aging, dark spots, etc. Your child can start to explore these products when they get older, but it's best to keep it simple during the pre-teen years.
At Kids Care Co, we recommend our Gentle Foaming Face Cleanser. This cleanser is specifically designed for pre-teens and is formulated with natural ingredients to provide a gentle yet effective cleanse. It is free from harsh chemicals so it won't irritate your child’s delicate skin. Plus, it's free from parabens, sulfates, and synthetic fragrances, so it won't leave your child’s skin feeling dry or tight.
Step 2: Once your child’s skin is clean, it’s important to keep it moisturized.
Moisturiser is an essential step in skincare routines for people of all ages. Kids absorb and lose more water and moisture than adults, so moisturising is a necessity. We recommend our Kids Care Co Light Face Moisturiser. It is a light and non-greasy formula that absorbs quickly into the skin, providing long-lasting hydration. It is also formulated with natural ingredients, so it won't clog your child’s pores or leave their skin feeling oily.
During the day we also recommend a factor 50+sunscreen.
As parents, we all want the best for our kids, especially when it comes to their skin. Taking good care of their skin now will help them avoid problems in the future. But with so many products on the market, it can be hard to know which ones are safe for pre-teens.
At Kids Care Co, we believe that pre-teens don't need complicated skincare products or treatments. In fact, many of the products marketed to pre-teens can actually be harmful to young skin. Toners and face masks are two examples of products that can be overly harsh and drying on pre-teen skin.
A simple routine of cleansing, moisturizing, and protecting their skin is all pre-teens need to keep their skin healthy and glowing.
At Kids Care Co, we believe in helping kids take the best care of their skin, no matter what age they are. With our range of gentle, kid-friendly products, you can be sure that your pre-teen is getting the best care for their skin.
