Kids and Winter Skin: Top Tips
Parents can assist their children to build or maintain a healthy face skin barrier with these tips below which are helpful for anyone whose skin is even mildly dry or sensitive:
1. Don't Use Soap on Your Face
Soap and water alone is not sufficient for tweens, particularly if they are experiencing early signs of puberty. Soap is drying on skin, which can lead to spots and irritation and water alone will not remove dirt build up in pores.
Also, skip bubble baths as the detergents in these products dry out skin.
2. Reconsider Bath- time Routines
When washing your face, the water should be tepid. Hot water stimulates nerve endings which can then irritate the skin, resulting in the skin feeling itchy and dry.
It is recommended that after washing skin be patted with a towel. Rubbing the skin can cause irritation.
Moisturiser is a must to combat dryness. Hydration is essential for healthy skin and can provide a great deal of protection against external elements. A good daily moisturiser helps to protect young skin from the environment, it acts as a preventative against acne and enhances the natural health and radiance in young skin.
For young people, it is recommended that a moisturiser be fragrance free so as not to cause irritation.
