Starting a skincare routine in early teenage years is extremely beneficial for the long haul, say the experts!
Celebrity esthetician Renee Rouleau, says the following on her popular blog "Due to hormonal changes, it is common for many teenagers to struggle with the various types of acne. Cysts, pustules, papules, blackheads and more can take a toll on teens’ self-confidence. Whether or not teenage skin has acne, it is still really important to start young with good skin care habits."
"If you have young children in your life, teaching them the importance of caring for their skin is such a great gift not only for their appearance, but also for a boost of self-esteem." She further adds.
A good skincare routine will not only treat any pre-existing skin related issues like acne or pigmentation, but also prevent them from developing in the future as you will grow older.
Here is a fact about teenagers skincare habits:
A lot of teenagers believe that skincare is all about washing your face and applying just any kind of moisturizer that is easily available or the one that their friends use.
But the reality is:
Everyone has a different skin type, hence, you should only use those skincare products that are suitable for your skin. We already have a handy guide that will help you to find out what your skin type is.
Once you are aware of your exact skin type and its requirements, you can move ahead, choose the best products for yourself and incorporate these skincare tips in your daily life that we are about to share below. Check them out!
Don't Pick At Your Pimples
Got a pimple on your face just before your freshers party or a date night? We know that it can be an annoying situation to be in before a special event.. but the worst thing you can do to that pimple is pop it!
You should never pick at your breakouts or touch them repeatedly because doing so can leave scars on your face which can be hard to get rid of. Besides that, touching the breakouts too often can spread the bacteria on your skin and cause more acne.
Furthermore, We will not recommend you to cover any active acne with heavy makeup because products like foundations or concealers can clog your facial pores.
Let your pimples disappear on their own and try to treat them with only natural products like DeBelle Skin Moisturizer Green Tea Infusion that contains natural green tea extracts which have an ability to heal pimples with the help of antioxidants present in them.
Choose Products Wisely
Again, as we said, skincare products are meant to be chosen according to your skin type. You cannot just pick any kind of moisturizer or face wash from the store and expect it to do wonders for your skin once you have used it.
Before using a skincare product, you should always go through its ingredient list to see if it contains any chemicals. Chemicals present in face products can damage your delicate skin. Natural, paraben free products are always the safest for your skin as they carry numerous benefits.
DeBelle's range of beauty care products are made with exotic natural ingredients like Kojic Acid, Pearl Dust, Turmeric Oil, etc,.
DeBelle Fairness Cream is a great option for teenagers who want a moisturizing product that can also transform the overall look of the skin by adding a natural glow to it. It is a lightweight cream that has a smooth texture and an amazing fragrance. It comes infused with SPF 20 that will protect your skin against harmful UV Rays, thus, you do not need to apply a sunscreen separately when you are using our Fairness Cream.
After applying the DeBelle Fairness Cream, you can use DeBelle Fairness Talc over it to keep your skin matte and fresh all day long.
Teens with dry or flaky skin can try out our newest product, DeBelle Moisturizing Lotion which is an intensely nourishing product that can be used on the face and body, both. This lotion is amalgamated with Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter and Glycerine.
Avoid Using Odd Remedies To Treat Your Acne
Acne and pimples are very common during the teen years because of sudden hormonal changes. To get rid of them fast, many teenagers put their trust on old wives' remedies that may or may not be the best choice for their skin. In fact, some old age hacks can actually worsen the skin's condition.
For example, using toothpaste or baking soda on active acne can burn your skin. Still, a lot of people believe in these two quick remedies to get rid of acne.
There are tons of natural ingredients that you can use on acne instead of these two, like tea tree oil (diluted with a carrier oil), neem and garlic. Even yummy and juicy orange, which is a favourite fruit of many of us, is helpful in reducing acne as it is full of vitamin A. It can rejuvenate and restore the skin and also fade out the acne scars. Try out our newly launched DeBelle Skin Moisturizer Orange Blaze.
If you are a teenage girl with severe acne issue then you should consider seeing a dermatologist or gynecologist before trying anything else because it can be a notable sign of Polycystic Ovary Disorder (PCOD).
Cleanse Your Skin At Least Twice A Day
Having dirt, oil or sweat on the skin for a long time can aggravate acne and also make your skin appear dull. Always make sure to cleanse your skin at least twice a day, once in the morning and once in the night before hitting the bed.
Teens who play sports or go to the gym can carry some wet wipes which can be used to quickly clean the face after any activity. Reusable facial wipes can be made at home by following this method:
You will need..
- 2-3 Wash Cloths.
- Half cup Rose Water.
- 1 tbsp Almond Oil.
- 3-4 drops of Tea Tree Oil.
- A jar for storage.
Put the wash cloths in the storage jar. In a bowl, combine all other 3 ingredients and mix them well. Pour the mixture into the storage jar and press the wash cloths to make sure that they soak up all the liquid.
Your DIY facial wipes are ready! You don't need to throw away the wash cloths after using them, just wash them thoroughly, let them dry and use the same mixture to turn them into wet facial wipes again. Cheap and Eco friendly solution!
Avoid Eating Oily Or Junk Foods
There is not just one, but a million of reasons to avoid unhealthy foods like chips, pizzas, burgers, deep fried foods, etc. Following a poor diet can significantly affect your skin's appearance and make it age faster. Having your favourite dishes or drinking soda once in a while is OK, but try not to consume them on a regular basis.
