Start Them Young: Skincare tips for teens Know the basics!

Growing up can be quite a heavy work – from all the academic stress to managing schedules to balancing life in general.  It can be infuriating sometimes, especially when our skin does not cooperate with how everything is going, are we right? But hey! In this blog, we are going to tell you some of the ways on how you can take care of your skin now that you’re growing up!

We have already talked about the skin types, the different ingredients that you must consider, and even the lifestyle that you should live if you want to have that fresh and clear skin. However, it is truly inevitable to encounter some bad skin days, considering the heavy workload you are having! So, come on, sister! Let’s learn the basics of skincare for teenagers. Take note that this can be applicable regardless of your gender, so better take down some notes!

  • Lukewarm water is the best option
  • Soooo, a lot of you may be asking, why lukewarm water instead of a cold one? And the answer is simple… it’s because lukewarm water will help your skin on absorbing the products that you put on your face the best rather than cold water. Oh, and just a quick side note, never believe on the notion that hot water is the better one! Lukewarm water will balance all the skincare products that you put on your face, thus avoiding acne and other blemishes on your face.

  • Treat your blemishes
  • Treating your blemishes means using the right products for your face. It is important to remember that whenever you have an acne growing on your face, do not be too harsh on them and AVOID touching them as much as you can. There are also available products that help you on treating your blemishes such as pimple patches or pimple-reliving creams so that you’ll be able to eliminate those. And of course, do not pop your pimples cause that will simply leave a mark on your face or skin. On the other hand, if you are experiencing rough skin patches like chicken skin on your back or on your arms, it is important to use products that will help them vanish so that you will not be irritated in the long run!

  • Cleanse, tone, moisturize
  • Of course, how could we forget? GWTG totally recommends for you to cleanse, tone and moisturize your face. These three things are the most vital parts of a skincare routine so you should be able to do all these! Regardless of your skin type, do not be afraid to cleanse, tone and moisturize your face as this will help you on managing clogged pores. Just make sure to choose the products that are most fitting for your skin type!

  • Follow a healthy lifestyle
  • Now, this is actually easier said than done. As we are growing up, it becomes much harder for us to get that healthy lifestyle with lots of things that we want to happen within a day. There are days when we just want to feel productive and stay up late at night in order to finish all our school tasks and binge watch our favorite films or series. It’s completely fine, we tell you! But GWTG hopes that you’ll be able to do all these at the right time of the day. 

    For a better tip, try creating a schedule of the things that you want to do in a day beforehand. This will help you to avoid those dark under eyes and pre-mature aging. In addition to that, you can also try eating healthier food, especially those which are rich in vitamin C and vitamin E for healthier skin as well!

  • Use sun protection products
  • For our last tip, you should start using sun protection products as early as your teenage years. Sunscreens are the best remedy for acne and it is also the best product to use in order to protect yourself from all the harmful UVA and UVB rays that touch your skin. Believe us when we say that GWTG offers the best product for sun protection. The GWTG Sun Stick will help you get through the day worry-free since it has ingredients like ceramide, moisturizer and SPF 50++ which are perfect for all our teens out there!

    We start young. That’s right! We should not wait till we experience all those wrinkles or pimples to start taking care of our skin. It will really be helpful for one to conduct a proper skincare routine, live healthier, and choose using the GWTG Sun Stick for the best skin outcome, and you definitely won’t regret it!
