Teen Skin Care Is Crucial

It's important that you start caring for your skin and protecting it now so you can preserve its youthful qualities for today and prevent premature aging in the future. Damage on the surface of your skin takes years to show up, which is why it’s so important to start a healthy skin care routine early. While you can’t change your genes, proper skin care can help you overcome a multitude of conditions, including oily and acne prone skin.

Treat Your Teen Skin With Gentle Care

Do you believe that if a product is stronger it is better? That may be true for some things but it is not true for your skin. As a teen, your skin may be more resilient but harsh products may do more harm than good, especially if you suffer from acne or other skin irritations.

Begin A Skin Care Regimen

First you should begin with a teen facial to give your skin a clean foundation to start with. Your treatment will include cleansing, towel steaming, exfoliation, light extractions and an appropriate mask for your skin type, moisturizer and SPF 30 sunblock. We will then come up with a planned skin care regimen designed especially for you!

The Sun Is NOT Your Friend

Sunscreen is one of the most important parts of a healthy skincare regimen. More and more teens are getting skin cancer every year. Even if you don’t get skin cancer the damage the sun can do during your teen years will turn into premature wrinkles, age spots and dryness. 
Sunblock should be applied on top of moisturizer, whether you are heading to the beach or not. You should be using an SPF of at least 30, no matter the time of year. You can apply it generously to your entire face and neck, don’t forget your ears. You should also avoid tanning beds. If you want that healthy “sun-kissed” look use a topical self tanner for your body and AYUR-MEDIC’S Sheer Tinted SPF 30 for your face. It will give you the sun protection that you need while evening out your skin tone at the same time.
