Top 5 Skincare Tips for Tweens and Teens
1. Clean your face every night
Forgetting or neglecting to wash your face at night means that you are going to sleep with dirt, bacteria and germs sitting on your skin. This can lead to rashes or outbreaks and can disrupt a good night’s sleep.
2. Wash with lukewarm water
When washing your face, you should always use lukewarm water instead of extremely hot or cold water. Extremely hot water will irritate the skin and cold water will not remove all the dirt.
3. Use gentle skincare products
Young people should use skincare products that are gentle and free of dyes, synthetic fragrances, and unnecessary chemicals. In doing so, you will avoid harsh ingredients that are likely to irritate the skin.
4. Wear sunscreen
Wearing sunscreen helps to prevent sunburns and sun damage to your skin. Whether it’s playing at the park, swimming in the pool, or riding bikes, sunscreen is essential for all outdoor activities.
5. Avoid picking at scabs or acne
While it may be tempting, picking at acne or scabs open them up to bacteria which leads to scarring.
