Our skin changes from time to time: puberty – adulthood – middle age. At each age, the skin requires a special care regimen, which is suitable for the skin condition at that age.
In these three phases, puberty (age 12–19) plays a fundamental role, deciding whether your skin will be healthy and smooth later. Therefore, as soon as the baby enters puberty, you need to equip them with basic knowledge of skin care for this age.
Clean skin properly
Like morning and evening brushing, you need to wash your face twice a day, in the morning when you wake up and every night before you go to sleep. This will help remove dirt, sebum, dead cells, make your pores clear so you don’t create chances for acne to appear. Washing your face is also an important step, preparing your skin to absorb nutrients from moisturizers. But note that you should not wash your face more than 2 times a day just because your skin is full of oil. Doing so, the skin will produce more oil.
The face wash product you choose should also be suitable for your skin type. For normal and dry skin, gentle cleansers will help with gentle cleansing. With “hard-to-treat” skin like acne, choose a facial cleanser that contains safe, benign natural ingredients. It not only cleans all the dirt on the skin but also offers the ability to prevent acne.
You can choose products with natural ingredients extracted from curcumin or Neem leaves … These are all active ingredients to prevent bacteria causing acne effectively, and help quickly regenerate skin damage to make the skin recovered, healthy from the inside.
Don’t forget to remove dead skin cells once a week to help skin regenerate new cells, become rosy and healthier.
Moisturize after cleansing the skin
After washing your face, remember to use toner and moisturizer to balance the moisture and nourish your skin. For acne skin, this is a good time to apply acne cream. Acne creams often have active ingredients resorcinol, benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, azelaic acid … preventing excessive oil spills, reducing the growth of acne-causing bacteria and helping to heal acne.
If you are afraid of acne creams that contain chemical ingredients that can cause skin allergies, look for creams containing natural ingredients. Some natural ingredients such as green tea, turmeric, red onion, aloe … are effective for treating acne.
If your acne status is in the heavy form with all kinds of pustules, acne, cysts … it is better to see a doctor for effective treatment. Your doctor can give you antibiotics and more powerful acne creams. Thus, you will not have to deal with the disadvantages of deep scar, concave scars after acne.
Make friends with suncream
One of the most important lessons teen girls need to equip is to use suncream to fight aging and cancer. Whatever your skin type, always applying suncream before going out also helps your skin to be protected from the sun damage. You need to apply at least 20 minutes before going out, reapply every 2 hours whether it rains or shines. Note that for acne skin, choose an oil-free cream.
It is not necessary to use eye creams
Under the age of 20, the skin is in the developmental stage so there is no sign of aging. Similarly, the skin around the eyes is not at risk of eyelid collapse, swelling or dark circles. Meanwhile, the main function of eye cream is to fill and moisturize the delicate skin around the eyes. Therefore, applying eye cream is not a really important step in the skin care routine of puberty.
The only case you need for eye cream at this age is the appearance of dark circles due to stress or lack of sleep. At that time, a basic eye cream will help improve this condition.
Be careful when applying makeup
Puberty skin is young and quite sensitive. So, you need to consider every time you use make-up cosmetics otherwise they can cause allergy to your face. In case of makeup, apply moisturizer first, then cream foundation and finally powder.
Acne skin is more prudent when deciding on makeup. The makeup products are created to help you enhance the beauty on the face and obstruct the weaknesses. But the fact is, the more you try to use powder to cover the spots, the worse the condition becomes. Therefore, you need to minimize the make-up when your skin has acne to help it recover quickly.
But what if acne girls still want to makeup? The advice for you is to choose products specific for acne skin because they contain ingredients that can help you treat acne. In addition, you should only cover the spots of acne and other skin areas should be natural or rub cream to prevent skin from being secreted.
Have a reasonable diet
Skin care outside is not enough. If you want to have beautiful skin, you have to take care from inside, starting with having a proper diet and living. Reducing sugar, milk, starch, increasing vegetables, fruits, drinking enough water, getting enough sleep, avoiding stress … are things you need to do to maintain healthy skin. Besides, it is necessary to immediately eliminate the habit of touching hands on acne or squeezing acne to avoid aggravating acne.
