Let’s touch on teenage skin, it’s ups and downs, it’s unpredictability and the products that are suited for this skin type. At a younger age our skin cell turnover is a lot faster than that of mature skin. Cell renewal is far more frequent, which means there is no need for products that focus on resurfacing or anything that is too active. Teenage skin needs ingredients and elements that are hydrating, calming and clearing. It’s important to use skincare that is gentle on this delicate younger skin.
At this time, due to hormonal changes, teenagers experience breakouts that cause inflammation. This inflammation can be pretty painful and uncomfortable. Our Hydrating Milk Cleanser and Calming Serum are ideal for soothing and calming that inflamed area. These products relieve the skin of irritation, redness and soreness.
At this age we are highly active, playing sports and regularly building up a sweat! This sweat and activity can create bacteria that leads to break outs. As teenagers we are also not very vigilant at removing makeup or cleansing (double cleansing!!) regularly or the quality of the makeup and skincare we use is not great. Make that change, and you will see your skin change – for the better. The Purifying Charcoal Cleanser and Active B Serum are extremely effective for treating these breakouts and reducing and managing post inflammatory pigmentation (which is caused from the breakouts in the first place and picking at them). When we’re younger we don’t usually take sun protection as seriously as we should, but as we know now, prevention is way better than curing. Our UV Defense Moisturiser is a physical sunscreen that gives the highest form of protection, completely deflecting the UV rays from the hitting the skin in the first place.
