Teenage years are one of the most challenging times when we deal with skin issues. Your hormones are going up, unexpected pimples springing up overnight, and you’re in the middle of growing up. When you combine these problems, it can be pretty overwhelming.

Maybe you’ve seen a movie about youngsters with flawless skin and asked, “How do they do it?”. You probably dismissed it with: “Of course, it’s makeup.” Even though makeup has a lot to do with Hollywood movies, a teenager can have smooth, flawless skin.

This 7-step teen skincare routine shows you a simple way to get started:

1. Oil-based cleanser

This is a crucial step to get all the dirt and grime off your face that you picked up during the day. When you have oily skin or too much sebum, putting oil on your face seems strange. But this is what your face needs to get really clean.

Oils are the only way to get rid of oily and sebum-based impurities. You won’t be able to get rid of them if you try to wash your face with water. Don’t forget that oil and water don’t mix!

2. Water-based cleanser.

This step completes the double-cleanse method. As its name suggests, it helps eliminate all water-based impurities.

We suggest using a cleanser that cleans your skin of dirt and other impurities while nourishing and moisturizing it.

3. Toner

After washing your face, restoring the skin’s balance and PH is vital to get it ready for the next steps of treatment and hydration.

Toners help get rid of dead skin cells that could stop the good bacteria from getting into the skin. With regular use, a toner can make pores look smaller and brighten skin.

4. Serum

This part of your routine is meant to fix a specific problem, such as acne, spots, scars, oily skin, dry skin, etc. It can help improve the way your skin looks. A serum can also clean and shrink your pores, treat flaws, and make your skin feel smoother.

5. Mask

You don’t have to do this step every day, but you can if you want to with some types of masks. It gives your skin a small boost once or twice a week that strengthens it and helps it look healthy and smooth.

Plus, it’s fun!

6. Moisturizing

You can skip right to the moisturizer when you don’t wear a mask. Using it protects your skin by making a barrier that keeps moisture in and keeps your skin’s oil production in check.

7. Sunscreen 

You’d be making a huge mistake if you do not use sunscreen. This step is very important. By putting on sunscreen, you protect your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays, which can cause wrinkles, spots, and premature aging.

And, not to worry, some sunscreens absorb quickly and don’t leave a white cast on your skin.

Don’t forget! You should reapply your sunscreen at least every four hours or more often if you swim or sweat a lot.

Final Thoughts

This teen skincare regimen will transform your skin from a hormonal wreck to a beautiful, glowing canvas.

It is important to remember that with skincare, consistency is vital. To win the war against acne and sebum production, you must perform these actions every day and night.

Most importantly, be patient and enjoy the process!
