As a teen, getting into a skin care routine can be daunting.The mainstream beauty industry is constantly setting expectations for your skin, bodies, faces, and hair; however, I often find these ideas and chemical formulas to be damaging rather than nourishing for our health.
It’s fun to celebrate your unique body, and finding a healthy skin care routine that supports the normal and exciting changes that are happening is important. It can be a frenzied world out there, so I’d love to help guide you in the right direction with skin care tips and daily routines that support your skin and overall well being.
Think of me as your own personal, virtual esthetician!
You have so many things going on in your day-to-day life. School, extra-curricular activities, friends, hobbies…your skin care routine doesn’t have to feel like another tedious task. A routine that incorporates self care is just as important as providing your skin with the nutrients and nourishment it needs. The collection below does both. It is all about natural skin care products that give you flexibility to show yourself some love.
The products below are special as they’ve become a staple for the three middle-schoolers in my house. Having knowledge about skin care for teens has helped them feel empowered as they are now able to take care of and feel good about their own skin. What’s exciting is, you can mix and match the products below, just be sure to follow the few simple steps – The power is all yours!
So let’s dive into these beautiful-smelling, vegan plant products and see which one(s) stand out to you.
Calm Skin Chamomile Cleanser
Is your skin oily? Dry? Or somewhere in between? A cream cleanser covers all skin types and is at the foundation of good skin care for teens, even if you have some acne. This gentle product cleanses your face but leaves all the healthy moisture that your skin needs to stay hydrated and protected. A cream cleanser is a blend of oil and water, so you can wash your face gently without worrying about stripping the natural oils away. If washing your face twice a day is too much for your busy schedule, once/day is fine! Just make sure it’s the first step in your skin care routine, and if you’re doing it once a day, do so at night before bed.
Featured ingredient: Calendula oil
Calendula is a bright, sunny flower that loves to support the skin. When infused in oil, it helps reduce any puffiness and redness that may arise while gently soothing. It contains natural antioxidants that will help limit stress-induced breakouts and it also contains volatile oils that are similar to the oils in our skin, which lock in moisture.
Clear Skin Probiotic Cleanser
Our second cleanser is for those surprise or frequent, mild to moderate breakouts. It does an excellent job of washing away sweat and bacteria so your skin feels cool and balanced. If you’re including anything else in your skin care routine, be sure to cleanse first. I find that adding it to your morning skin care routine or within 10 minutes of sports/exercise will give you great results. Also, it’s gentle enough that you can use it even if you’re on acne medication from your Dermatologist.
Featured ingredient: Tea Tree oil
Tea tree oil is a star against breakouts. It has the same redness-reducing, soothing action as calendula, but will also wick away any unwanted bacteria that show up on your skin. This oil will help reduce the number of breakouts and the severity of them as well.
Strawberry Rhubarb Hyaluronic Hydrator
The Strawberry Rhubarb Hyaluronic Hydrator has an array of ingredients that support hydration. The small amounts of salicylic acid from the strawberries gently exfoliates while the rhubarb’s astringent qualities tone the skin for a glowing look. This hydrator has a lightweight texture and a unique blend of water-based properties that lock in moisture and keep the skin dewy. It is for all skin types. For your skin care routine, apply 3 pumps onto your fingertips and massage into your whole face. You can use it in the morning or at night after your cleanser.
Featured ingredient: Hyaluronic Acid
Although it may sound scary, hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the body. It supports all tissues in the body to retain moisture so we stay well hydrated. Being the largest organ in the body, the skin uses hyaluronic acid to hold on to moisture. Adding a little bit of this to your daily skin care routine will support the body’s main source of hyaluronic acid, which gets depleted by the sun, so your face will always feel deeply hydrated.
Acne Advanced Clarifying Hydrator
This hydrator is more for the mild to moderate breakouts. It’s ultra-lightweight and will remove excess oil and shine from the face. If this sounds like your skin, use three pumps and massage gently into your whole face after you’ve cleansed. It’s good for morning or night and can even be used for the occasional spot treatment for breakouts! Just massage 1 dab into the affected area.
Featured ingredient: Salicylic Acid
Salicylic acid is another naturally occurring substance found in plants. It gently exfoliates the skin, helping to remove any dead skin cells that may build up and cause clogged pores or itchiness. Salicylic acid can also help reduce redness and support healing so nothing will stand in the way of your glow.
