Are you spending a lot of time in front of the mirror, worrying about your pimples? Well, the teen years can be filled with agonies, especially when it comes to skin problems. Almost all teens suffer from skin troubles, including painful pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, and many other forms of blemishes. Having a good skincare regime is vital during your teen years and is also the best time when you should start to follow proper teenage skincare. If you take proper care of your skin and continue to keep it properly nurtured, you can stop various skin problems from occurring over and over again.
Know your skin type-
Before we discuss the skincare regime, it is very important for you to know your skin type, whether it is oily, dry, normal or combination skin to help you choose products wisely.
In this article, we shall see some skincare rules that can aid you in taking better care of your skin.
Wash your face twice a day: once in the morning and once at night. Oil, dirt, and sweat can accumulate on the skin overnight. Thus make sure to wash your face after waking up for better penetration of skin products. Repeat the same process at night before going to sleep to remove the dirt, oil, and particulate matter that accumulate during the day. So, wash it gently and properly to give it a feel of freshness before dozing off. Use products with Salicylic acid, or Vitamin A to help clear your acne. Gently massage your face with circular motions and be careful not to overwash, it can irritate your skin.
Exfoliate your skin –
Exfoliation of skin helps in getting rid of various dead cells from the outermost layer of your skin, giving you healthy and glowing skin. The build-up of these dead skin cells can lead to excess oil and clogged pores, causing acne and other skin problems. Exfoliation also helps in better penetration of skin care products such as serums, toners, moisturizers, and sunscreen. Use gentle exfoliators if you have acne-prone skin.
Pilgrim Volcanic Lava Ash Face Scrub is a gentle yet effective scrub. Its extra-fine particles will be gently sloughing off the dead skin cells, blackheads, and whiteheads from the skin. It can also reduce pigmentation, suntan, fine lines, and discolorations. In no time, you will have a soft, supple, younger-looking skin. Avoid over-exfoliation as it can make your skin red and flaky.
Applying Skin toner –
The Pilgrim White Lotus Natural Face Mist & Toner is perfect for delivering the most potent ingredients of nature to your skin. The toner will spread evenly and get absorbed instantly to reveal soft and glowing skin. It will also hydrate your skin and maintain your pH balance.
Moisturizing your skin –
Moisturizing is an essential part of skin care. You need to balance the application of moisturizer as using it excessively can cause acne problems, and lack of moisture can make your skin excessively dry and cause wrinkles on your face. Also, choose a separate moisturizing product for your face and for your body parts.
Lips are one of the most sensitive parts of the body, which makes it prone to damage easily. Opt for a lip balm with natural ingredients and avoid ingredients like petrolatum. Lips are also prone to sunburn as they lack melanin, the pigment responsible for protecting skin from the sun. So, do not forget to apply sunblock on your lips.
Applying sunscreen –
Make it a regular habit of applying sunscreen every time you go out of your home. A minimum of SPF 30 or more is recommended for daily wear. Pilgrim White Lotus Day Cream is built with SPF 50. It will protect you from the sun, prevent sunspots, and even provide coverage for slight discolorations like hyperpigmentation and redness. Sunscreens are extremely beneficial in protecting the skin against sun damage and aging signs. We generally have a misconception of using sunscreens only during summer. But, if you want better UVA/UVB sun rays protection for your skin, then do apply sunscreens during winter or cloudy season too.
Skincare rules for you-
- Drink lots of water to keep your body and skin hydrated
- Sleep 7-8 hours every day
- Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables
- Avoid excessive use of topical creams
- Don’t pop or squeeze the blackhead or a pimple
We hope with this teenage skincare routine, you can take better care of yourself and have a beautiful and healthy-looking skin lifelong.
