Although it maybe a distant memory for some of us, we can still remember the anxiety of waking up, looking in the mirror and seeing another spot! Raging hormones and trying to be ‘grown up’ comes with a price, some may sail through puberty without a sign of spots or acne but for most of us, this is not the case.
Starting a skin routine at the earliest opportunity can help improve self-esteem and boost confidence. A basic skincare routine doesn’t have to take up a lot of time and cleansing and moisturising can be a simple way to prevent all these issues later on.
Here’s our recommended natural teenage skincare routine to prevent spots and help reduce acne:
1. Use Trinity Soap/Shampoo as a face wash daily – Trinity’s antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties can help deep cleanse the skin, removing bacteria that create spots. Apply to face like a face pack, leave it on for 10 -15 minutes before rinsing off.
2. Next, cleanse and tone with Elena’s Cleansing Tonic, a product that will deep cleanse the pores, and dry up any areas that could be prone to spots.
3. Finally, apply Day Cream Special as a moisturiser to protect the facial skin throughout the day. The subtle hint of Essential Oil of Lavender will help prevent the skin from breaking out by helping it to repair itself.
This routine can apply to boys as well as girls, after all they don’t escape the joys of being a teenager!
