TEENAGE SKINCARE

Like pretty much everything in your early teens—your first crush, your first period, your first bra purchase—navigating your first skin-care routine can be particularly confusing. It’s as if all of a sudden, your hormones have all teamed up and decided to hit you with a one-two punch of oily skin and acne, and you’ve got to figure out how to deal. My own personal introduction to skin care came at the ripe age of 13 by way of a mail-order skin-care kit that Jessica Simpson swore cleared up her acne. In other words, I had no idea what I was doing.

My teenage daughter will need the same tender loving care in her routine as I do.  I did not get much help in the way of hoe to treat my skin, But I can break that cycle by educating my daughter.  
At any age you must clear on what your skin type is.Then pick products accordingly.  


CLEANSER

A foaming cleanser is going to be the most gentle.  You want a product with salicylic  acid.  This is best for fighting acne.  Since my daughter wears make I recommend using micellar water as pre wash before a cleanser.  This is an added step well worth the trouble.



SERUMS

The environment  is harsh.  Teenage skin as well as adult skin needs protection from the environment.  The best line of defense is an antioxidant.  The fight the environment and brighten the skin Vit C is the best option.  This will increase the production of collagen and even out the skin tone and protect against UV rays.  .   


RETINOL

We often talk about how retinoids should become a part of anyone’s skin-care routine by the time they hit their late twenties, but the vitamin A derivative can be ultra-effective for teens, too. “Using ingredients like retinoids on young skin may in fact work better than when you use it with older skin because collagen production is in its prime,” says Dr. Zeichner. Plus, retinol also helps with acne, so consider this step to be a helpful one in both the short and  long-term health of your skin.


Moisturizer
On the moisturizing front, opt for a lighter lotion instead of a heavy cream. Oil-free options will likely be your best bet (whether you’re dry, oily, or a little bit of both) and there are plenty of great picks right there in the drugstore aisle.

Sunscreen

A good SPF is a non-negotiable at any age. Slather an SPF 30 on every morning as the final step in your routine for sun and blue light protection, which skin will be thanking you for later (trust us).

PLEASE REMEMBER THESES ARE MY OPINIONS I AM NOT A DOCTOR PLEASE SEEK ADVICE FROM A MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL BEFORE TRYING.
