Tweens: How to Wash Your Face
Question: Is your Tween washing their face daily?
The first step in introducing tweens to good skincare habits is finding out what they are currently doing or not doing! If they are washing their face are they using only water, body soap or possibly the adult cleanser that is in the shower?
Soap and adult cleansers are not recommended for tweens as they dry skin out, causing breakouts and skin irritations.
Solution: Dermatologists recommend for tweens a simple routine of gentle cleansing and moisturising, followed by a sunscreen.
Tweens do not need an acne or pimple line of skincare. The ingredients in these products are simply too harsh for skin within this age group. Of course if acne is becoming a real problem then a dermatologist review is recommended.
Tweens should only need to wash their face once a day, unless instances arise including examples such as these:
- they have very oily skin
- have been involved in sports
- have become visibly sweaty or dirty
- have used face paint or make up
- have been wearing sunscreen or insect repellent.
Kids Care Co’s Face Cleanser is a gentle foaming cleanser which cleans skin and leaves it feeling soft. It has been specifically formulated for tweens and early teens with ingredients to ensure skin is left hydrated.
We recommend applying 1-2 pumps onto the palms then gently massaging into the face using fingers in small motions being careful to avoid the eyes and mouth. Rinse off thoroughly with warm water and pat dry.
The second step is applying moisturiser. Moisturiser is important because it creates a barrier between your skin and environmental factors that can dry skin out. When skin is dry it can crack, allowing bacteria to enter.
Kids Care Co’s light face moisturiser is fragrance and oil free so can be used on sensitive skin and won’t leave skin oily and prone to breakouts.
We recommend applying 1-2 pumps onto fingers and then rub gently into the skin.
