Caring for your Teen Skin

Teen skin is not only unique but changes all the time due to hormone levels. Estheticians often see in teen skin the overproduction of oils that clog pores and cause acne. These clogged pores can be painful, become infected and even cause scarring! When it comes to caring for your teen skin you have to go deeper than the surface. A regimen designed for your skin type and complications will be the key to healthy, clear skin.

A Teen’s Guide to Skin Health and Skin Care

Step 1: Determine your skin type. A trained and licensed Esthetician can help you determine what skin type you have (mind you it is subject to change as your hormones fluctuate). Having monthly visits with an Esthetician will give you the upper edge in caring for your skin.

Step 2: Follow a Morning and Evening Skin Routine. It is important to care for your skin both in the morning and at night. Dead skin cells, and especially makeup can clog pores. It is important to NEVER go to bed with your makeup on.

Step 3: Exfoliate 1-2 times per week. Your skin could use to be exfoliated once a week. Note: Exfoliating more than twice a week will actually damage your skin and be counterproductive to your skin health.

Tip: Your skin will change throughout your life causing acne breakouts, blemishes and more. Starting early with a skin care regimen will help you reduce these occurrences.

Skin care takes dedication and a routine to see long term results. Stick with it and your acne breakouts will diminish and your skin will be healthier. Have any more questions about how to care for your Teen Skin? Ask #CynthiaSterrettSkinCare for more tips to keep your skin healthy.
