The constant commotion of school and college, as well as the hormonal, physical, and emotional changes that occur during puberty, make teenagers' skin particularly vulnerable. As a result, their skin may show signs of stress and unhealthy habits. As a result, proper skin care during adolescence is critical. At Foxtale we've created a simple 3-step skin care routine that all teens and beginners can follow to achieve a radiant complexion!
Why is a 3-step skincare routine ideal for teens?
You've seen the 10-step Korean skincare routine all over the internet, and now you're wondering if a 3-step routine would suffice. We understand. When you're just getting started, you should focus on the essentials and use products that you would use on a daily basis. Furthermore, teenagers' skin is extremely delicate and does not necessitate long-term care. Genetics and puberty are to blame for the majority of skin problems. As a result, the needs could be met with only the most basic of items.
3-Step Skincare Routine for Teenagers
Step 1: Cleanse Your Face to Remove Impurities
Cleansing is the most important part of any skin care regimen. Why? All other skincare products are pointless if you do not have a clean face as they can penetrate into your skin. Make sure to thoroughly wash your face to get rid of all the gunk. Choose a gel-based cleanser over a foaming one like our Daily Duet Face Wash, which removes dirt and oil without stripping your skin of its natural oils. If that wasn't enough, the product also doubles as a makeup remover, thanks to its emulsifiers.
Step 2: Moisturize for Soft and Supple Skin
In order to keep your skin hydrated and pampered throughout the day, use a moisturizer as the next step in your routine. We recommend our Ceramide Supercream Moisturizer after you've cleansed your skin. In the morning and at night, massage all of its benefits upwards. It aids in the development of healthy skin with a sun-kissed radiance. The best way to keep your skin soft and well-balanced while replenishing it!
Step 3: Apply Sunscreen to Combat Sun Damage
Being in the sun and hanging out with your friends is a great way to spend your teenage years. But then, uneven skin tone, tanning, and dark spots are all possible side effects of prolonged exposure to the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays. Prevent dullness, hyperpigmentation, and free radical damage to the skin by wearing sunscreen every day. Our Cover-Up Sunscreen, which contains SPF 50, is a good option for broad-spectrum sun protection. It's important that you reapply sunscreen every 2-3 hours if you'll be in direct sunlight.
Pro tip: If teen acne is a recurring issue, use chemical exfoliators twice or thrice a week. Opt for those containing BHAs to prevent and reduce acne, blackheads, and excessive oil build-up. If you have sensitive skin, go for exfoliators with AHAs such as lactic acid to diminish the post-acne marks for a clear complexion.
Stubborn acne and unhealthy skin are a part of the teenage years. However, following the aforementioned skincare routine can prevent such skin ailments and you can #SayHiToHappySkin! :)
