Skincare Tips for Teenagers

When you’re a teenager, your skin goes through a lot of changes. Hormonal fluctuations, stress, and an ever-changing lifestyle can take a toll on your complexion. That’s why it’s especially important for teens to have a solid skincare routine in place to keep their skin looking and feeling its best. Here are some teenage skincare tips to help you get started…


Cleanse Your Skin Twice a Day

Cleansing your skin is essential to remove dirt, oil, and makeup that can clog pores and lead to breakouts. Use a gentle, alcohol-free cleanser to wash your face twice a day, in the morning and at night. Be sure to rinse your face thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat it dry with a clean towel. We recommend Medik8’s Gentle Cleanser, which formulated with a variety of gentle, natural ingredients to help keep the skin feeling clean and refreshed. One of the main features of the Gentle Cleanser is its pH-balanced formula, which helps to maintain the skin’s natural pH level and prevent it from becoming too dry or too oily. This is particularly important for people with sensitive, hormonal skin, such as teenagers.

Treat Acne Early On 

The hormonal changes that occur during puberty often lead to acne, but ignoring it won’t make it disappear. Treating acne is usually necessary for it to clear up. So, don’t hesitate to take action and treat your acne, as it can make all the difference in achieving a clearer complexion. Luckily, there are plenty of skincare products out there to help speed up the treatment process! We especially love Medik8’s Blemish SOS, a rapid action treatment gel that is designed to target and eliminate blemishes. The targeted serum uses salicylic acid to loosen clumps of dead skin cells stuck in the pores. Dioic acid is also used to reduce the amount of sebum our skin produces, resulting in less pore blockages and blemish-free skin! Overall, Blemish SOS is a great option for teenagers who want to clear up their skin and maintain a healthy, glowing complexion.

Avoid Picking at Your Skin

Picking at your skin is a common habit that many people, especially teenagers, engage in when dealing with acne or other skin issues. While it may seem like a quick solution to getting rid of pimples, blackheads, or whiteheads, it can actually do more harm than good.

When you pick at your skin, you’re using your fingers, which can carry bacteria from other surfaces. This bacteria can then enter your pores and cause infections, leading to more breakouts and even scarring. Also, picking at your skin can make the affected area more inflamed and red, which can make it harder to cover up with makeup. Finally, it can damage the surrounding tissues and leave behind scars that are difficult to treat and may be permanent!


Facial Treatments

If you’re finding it difficult to get rid of your acne, don’t worry! Regular facial treatments from a skincare professional can be a helpful solution to improve the health and appearance of your skin. These treatments can provide a variety of benefits such as deep cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturising, which can work together to soothe your skin and reduce the occurrence of breakouts. By seeking the guidance of a skincare expert, you can take a positive step towards improving your skin’s condition and feeling more confident in your own skin. Here at La Peau, we understand how frustrating it can be to deal with persistent acne and breakouts, which is why we offer a range of facial treatments specifically designed to address these concerns.
