Easy to Follow
Teenage years can be some of the most stressful and difficult times.
Between finding out who you are, understanding yourself, entering your first part time job, navigating between social circles and learning to balance life, troubled and sensitive skin can be difficult to control. To help ease and soothe the irritation, we have put together this guide to provide the best care for sensitive and hormonal young skin.
Before we get into the skincare aspect, let us understand why our skin starts to change during puberty. Our bodies change in many ways during our teenage years, with our skin reflecting one of them. With puberty comes a surge in hormones. A lot of times, these hormones can increase sebum production in the body. Blemishes or acne is caused due to overproduction of sebum and pores being blocked by sebum, dirt or bacteria.
During adolescence the skin is still young and it is often unable to keep up with the changes and balance its functions on its own.
It is important to start nurturing and taking care of your skin, for the long term benefits.
We are here to help you get into a skincare routine and instil healthy skin habits. Starting on early with a skincare routine will have long term benefits for your skin. Your daily skincare routine should be very simple consisting of:
A Balancing cleanser
Moisturiser + Face Oil
Plus a weekly gentle exfoliating treatment or a clay mask to ensure skin is kept hydrated, oil production controlled, and harmful bacteria removed.
Teenage skincare forms the foundation of your skin health. It is important to be mindful of the products that you use on your skin. The impact those products have on not only your skin but also the environment, after you wash it off. Buying and using products that are good for You and the environment is crucial.
When buying a cleanser, make sure that it is a gentle one and does not strip your skin of its natural oils. A good cleanser does not leave your skin extremely dry.
Clarifying Face oil and Elixir of joy are designed to help control acne, rebalance overly oily skin and provide nourishing hydration to promote healing, containing naturally antibacterial plant - based ingredients, these face oils are a nutrient-rich sources of moisture and supply skin with essential fatty acids - the building block of skin
CONSISTENCY IS KEY
Getting into a skincare routine and keeping it regular is of utmost importance. Our bodies go through changes during the teenage years and a simple yet consistent skincare will help minimise breakouts and keep your skin healthy and happy.
Taking care of your skin is more important than covering it up. Invest in your skin as it is going to represent you for a long time in the future.
HYDRATE INSIDE OUT
Skin is the largest organ in the body, and it reflects what goes on inside. Our skin is made of cells, and these cells are made of water. Without water, our organs including the skin will not be able to function to the best of its ability. If you would like to read more about the significance of water in Skincare, click here.
Teenage is a good time to get into the habit of drinking water. As a young adult, you should start drinking upto two litres of water everyday. Water cleans the body from the inside and out. If our bodies are dehydrated, it gets difficult for the toxins to be flushed out. When these toxins can not be flushed out, they present themselves as different skin issues. Water hydrates the skin and makes it plump, dewey and radiant.
Although teenage skin is young and delicate, its also highly temperamental, making it particularly tricky to care for. A good skincare routine early on can really help with minimising the breakouts and keeping skin healthy, nourished and radiant. Get into a habit of taking care of your skin and it will take care of you.
