It’s all about skin care tips that you should know in your teenage years! Do you remember when your skin was clear, fluffy, and smooth until high school and everything happened, all the drama, the never-ending school deadlines, and then the next morning, your skin was all dried up and oily? Oh no, Acne!
You may still be figuring out your skincare routine, what products to use, or you may have purchased a skincare product but will not use it because you are afraid, or you are simply confused and don’t know what to do with it or how it would come back to the way it was. The truth is that we don’t need a lot of skincare products, but we do need to learn the basics first, and then you’re good to go.
Tip No. 1 – Cleansing
The most important step in any skin care routine at any age; even if you’re not wearing makeup, you should always remove the dirt and oil from your skin. If you have dry skin, you should use a gentle cleanser.
Avoid cleansers with overpowering scents or fragrances, and also consider the product’s consistency. Choose a gel or creamy cleanser because they are much more nourishing to the skin than foaming cleansers, which are too drying for dry skin types.
Foaming cleansers, on the other hand, are great for breaking up excess sebum and work well with oily skin types. Also, make sure you’re cleansing thoroughly so that your pores aren’t clogged and your skin doesn’t break out.
Tip No. 2 – Use Moisturizers
Moisturizers are useful for keeping your skin hydrated and nourishing it, and also protecting and preventing it from drying out. For oily skin types, just because you think you have natural oil on your face doesn’t mean you don’t need to moisturize it. It is still important to moisturize our faces because a lack of sebum causes the skin to produce more to compensate. Look for lightweight and gel moisturizers.
Tip No. 3 – Wear Sunscreen or SPF
Wearing Sunscreen and SPF will help your skin protect from UV damage, reduce your skin from aging, reduce the risk of Skin Cancer, and protect your skin from Sunburns. Now we know that you don’t want that to happen. That’s why the sooner you begin this step, the better your skin will look in the future.
Tip No. 4 – Avoid So-called At-home Acne Treatments
Those who “claim” to be able to remove pimples overnight. Just a friendly reminder that pimples will take at least a day to heal. DIY acne treatments are only temporary fixes that will dry out the area and irritate your skin even more. They don’t treat what’s beneath your skin, so it’s fine to take it one step at a time.
Tip No. 5 – Be Hygienic
We’re all aware that some of us enjoy wearing makeup, which is perfectly fine. However, if you do wear makeup, make sure to remove it before going to bed. It may be tempting to just pass out or sleep for a few minutes, but you won’t be happy when you wake up with acne on your face, so it is important to at least remove all makeup from your face and wash your makeup brushes and sponges on a regular basis to keep them clean.
Tip No. 6 – Have a Healthy Lifestyle
To win the battle of Acne we have to look within. A good tip is to drink plenty of water and have a healthy well balanced diet. This entails consuming vegetables, protein, and carbohydrates. Get enough sleep as well, because sleeping late will only make your skin look tired and unhealthy.
Now that we know the basics of skin care, more isn’t always better. This applies to everyone, not just teenagers. Also, learn about your skin type and what works best for you. Remember to keep things simple and take the time to learn more about your skin.
