Best Skincare Products and Practices for Teens and Tweens

When your skin looks good, you can feel good

For lots of us, August is both the final month of summer and an opportunity to begin again. For teens and tweens, heading back to school is an ideal time to cultivate new self-care regimens. Focusing on skin care health can be a key element of laying a new foundation to begin again because when your skin looks good, you can feel good!  

Jaime Carson, owner of Carson Skin Rejuvenation's boutique facial salon, specializes in custom facial and body treatments for clear, firm, and healthy skin. Her knowledge and expertise is augmented by high-quality products and advanced skin care technologies. 

To help you help your teens and tweens (we have your back!), we consulted Carson about her favorite home-tools for adolescents and she recommended these:

1. Foreo Luna Mini Cleansing Brush 

This is by far my favorite cleansing tool for teens. More often than not, the teens are not washing their face for long enough and are therefore not properly cleansing their pores. This tool makes it easy to get a nice deep cleanse each day and it's fun to use. 

2. Patchology Breakout Boxes

For teen acne, I love these Patchology Breakout Boxes. They contain a few nose strips for blackhead removal and an array of pimple stickers that heal pimples in half the time when worn overnight over the pimple. 

3. Bioelements Flash Foam Cleanser

One of my favorite cleansers for teens is the Bioelements Flash Foam Cleanser. It contains fruit acids to gently exfoliate and the kids love that it pumps out in a frothy foam. To use this along with the Luna Mini Cleansing Brush will leave the skin clean, fresh and balanced.

4. Environ Skin Essentia Vita-Antioxidant Gel

I can't say enough good things about this Environ Skin Essentia Vita-Antioxidant Gel. Loaded with vitamins A,C, E and a blend of Antioxidants, this gel is like a topical daily multivitamin for the skin and the kids love the lightweight gel formula since it never feels greasy. A layer of this beneath sunscreen is the perfect easy daily regimen to protect the health of the skin."

5. Lather's White Clay Deep Pore Cleansing Mask

If your teen's skin is oily, I love Lather's White Clay Deep Pore Cleansing Mask. Ten minutes in this masque will leave their skin feeling smooth and clean. I recommend using this once per week during the summertime.

6. Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40

As an everyday facial SPF I love the Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40. Teens will love this because it doesn't "feel" like sunscreen.
