Create a Skin Care Routine for Your Changing Skin
When it comes to puberty, your hormones are responsible for just about everything
when it comes to your changing body. Your skin is no exception.
Continued maintenance and a daily skin care routine for your face
can help you look and feel your best. Your skin can get more oily during puberty,
so it’s best to give it the daily care it needs. Make it simple, easy and affordable
so it can become a habit and help you get beautiful, healthy skin.
Determine Your Skin Type
Understanding whether your skin is dry, sensitive, oily or combination (spots of
oily skin, spots of dry skin) can help maximize the effects of your products. Once
you find out what kind of skin you have, look to use products that are made specifically
for your type. They will help address your skin type’s needs.
It’s important to remove dirt using a gentle cleanser every morning and every night.
The gentle cleansers can clean while not drying out your face. Also, if you have
oily skin make sure your cleanser cleans away oil instead of striping your face
of all the moisture. Opt for gentler washes that can still unclog pores but won’t
dry out your face.
Exfoliating will help rid your skin of dead cells and help you feel clean and refreshed.
Additionally, it’ll give your skin a soft and supple appearance. Although there
are numerous products out there for exfoliating your skin, it’s important to remember
that this is a process that could potentially irritate or even damage your skin.
Take it easy on the scrubbing! Once or twice a week would do it.
Adding moisture to your daily skin care routine will keep your face looking fresh
and radiant throughout the day. While your skin may not feel like it’s dry, that
doesn’t mean it doesn’t need moisture. Be cautious, though, as not all beauty products
are held to the same standard. A moisturizer shouldn’t feel heavy or be too oily.
Keep one thing in mind as you get ready every morning to leave the house: The sun
does more “natural” damage to your skin than almost anything else. Protecting your
skin against ultraviolet rays is a good thing to do everyday, regardless of the
season. Find a sunscreen, a foundation, BB cream or moisturizer that contains broad-spectrum
protection against both UVA and UVB rays to get the most out of your sun protection.
By using these simple steps and creating a daily skin care regimen, you’ll be able
to maintain glowing, healthy skin all year long.
