Being a teenager, your skin is more prone to various skin inflammations. This is just the time to start a healthy skincare routine.
The mistake many people make is thinking that anything beyond cleansing or using an acne treatment is a tough or unnecessary task because your skin is still young.
On the contrary, it is very important to realize that a healthy skincare routine is very crucial during teenage years to prevent various skin inflammations like pimples and acne.
Here are some tips for you to achieve the best possible results for a young skin:
Be careful when choosing cosmetics
Certain cosmetics or make-up products like foundation, moisturizer, and blusher should be oil-free. Be aware of the harmful ingredients used in skincare products and their adverse effects on your skin.
Always choose products that do not promote blemishes or allergies to your skin. Take suggestions from your dermatologist or any qualified skin expert to choose products for your skin.
Wash your face frequently
Washing your face with clean water is the best way to eliminate bacteria or other harmful germs from your skin.
However, don’t use harsh soaps and also don’t wash too often, which can cause irritation or more problems. Pick a good foaming cleanser to gently rinse your face.
Drink plenty of healthy fluids
Drinking plenty of healthy fluids is extremely important for teenagers to get a healthy skin. Water plays a crucial role in achieving a glowing skin and also aids in the digestion and absorption of food.
It is mainly responsible to carry essential nutrients to your skin and eliminate waste from cells.
Use weekly masks and exfoliators
A good mask deeply cleanses the pores of your skin and an exfoliator eliminates the dead skin cells and top layer. When choosing a mask, go for a clay or herbal mask, which will deeply cleanse the pores.
A weekly exfoliator will encourage new skin or a new surface faster. However, be sure that you are gentle and don’t over scrub your sensitive, young skin.
Use sunscreen regularly
As sun can potentially damage your skin and promotes the premature aging of skin, try to protect your skin from sun as much as possible. The daily use of sunscreen is therefore strongly recommended.
You can also re-apply sunscreen, when you are in the sun for prolonged periods of time.
Follow these tips and you are sure to maintain a healthy skin in your precious teenage years, which will bode well for adulthood.
