I was recently asked when would be a good time to start a skin care regimen for a teenage girl. My response was that at any age for a girl or boy. When you start healthy habits at a young age they last a lifetime. It’s always good to be preventative before a problem occurs. Skin is our largest organ. Cleansing your skin properly morning and night and replenishing with a serum or moisturizer will be the first step. Everything we put in our body can reflect on the outside, so maintaining a well balanced diet and 8 glasses of water a day will also help.
In order to start a proper skin care regimen with your teenager a teen facial would be ideal. This will allow your esthetician to properly recommend products suited to the specific skin type. It will also help your teenager get a better understanding of their skin’s needs.
