Natural Skin Care Tips For Teenagers

Your initial teenage years are the perfect time to understand the kind of care your skin needs and build a regime accordingly. 

Here you will get to read about how to build a realistic natural skincare routine during your teen years and some tips for healthier skin.


Types Of Skin

There are a lot of hormonal changes that the body is going through during our teens. All these changes have an impact on the skin as it is trying to adapt to these new bodily functions. However, all skin types vary from one another. Let’s have a look at different skin types - 

  • Normal Skin
    This skin type is neither too dry nor too oily. Therefore products that are moderately moisturizing are perfect for this skin type. 
  • Dry Skin
    Those with dry skin often feel dry patches all over their face after cleansing. Moisturization becomes the most important step in the skincare routine of this skin type. 
  • Oily Skin
    Oily skin tends to have excessive sebum production all over the face, compared to the other skin types. Therefore it requires products that help in balancing it by not letting the pores get clogged.
  • Combination Skin
    An oily T-Zone is a sign of combination skin. It's your forehead and nose that are oilier compared to the rest of your face. In that case you need to use products that have a combination of both oily and dry skin components.

Importance of Teen Skincare

Our body goes through a lot of changes during our teen years. Skincare is essential during this early phase to ensure the overall skins' health. It is necessary to understand one's skin type and have a suitable skincare regime which is effective and as per your individual skin. 


Skin Problems Faced By Teenagers

Here are a few of the most common skin issues faced by teens:

  • Acne
    Sometimes the hormonal changes in teenagers lead to acne formation. Acne comes with other skin-related problems such as excessive whiteheads and blackheads. The cheeks and forehead are the most common regions of the face that experience the appearance of acne.
  • Intense Sweating
    Sweating is one of the common causes related to skin concerns. You must take notice if your teenage kid faces excessive sweating on their forehead, underarms, and palms – this may be because of overexposure to heat or stress. 
  • Sunburn 
    In extremely hot weather, sunburn is a common skin concern amongst teenagers. This is when they spend most of their time outside which also makes them prone to tannin. This should be taken care of to prevent signs of long-term pigmentation.
