Teenage Skin

The most important aspect of a teenager’s skin is they learn to use the highest quality natural and organic products and daily rituals right from the get go.

We are often asked by our Mum customers when they should start their children on a skin care regime.

In our experience if your child is experiencing skin issues as young as 10, then that’s the time to start. The onset of puberty, which is often younger these days, is likely to bring about pimples. Often we have found simply by incorporating Cleansing Cream use for morning and evening cleansing will do the trick and clear their skin.

Sometimes there is the need to also incorporate Clarifying Toner, and possibly Clarifying Day Oil if oiliness is a problem.

Coverstick is a must for pimples! The quicker a pimple is healed the less likelihood of lifetime scarring.

As children grow into the teenage years bear in mind conventional foundation is usually occlusive and/or comedogenic to the skin. Concentrated Translucent Bronzing Tint mixed with Clarifying Day Oil (or Melissa Day Cream or Rose Day Cream Light) helps to even skin tone. When the time comes for make-up look to Dr. Hauschka Foundation.

Clarifying Day Oil is a lightweight, rapidly absorbed oil, that helps to calm, balance and regulate oily skin. Yes, oil for an oily skin! It may seem counter intuitive at first, but just give the skin a chance to regulate and balance on our skin care regime.

Melissa Day Cream is a matte textured, specific product for a combination (oily t-zone {forehead, nose, chin} dry/normal cheeks). Melissa (medicinal herb Lemon Balm) mediates between oily and dry/normal areas. The aroma is uplifting, and oily shine is controlled.

Rose Day Cream Light is a second generation product. Our Mum customers using Rose Day Cream asked us to develop a lighter Rose product for their daughters. It’s also matte in texture.

Recommended Daily Skin Care Rituals

Morning:

  1. Compress & Hydrate your skin using Sage Purifying Bath Essence in your basin water
  2. Cleansing Cream – mix with a little water into a paste and ‘press & roll’
  3. Clarifying Facial Toner – close eyes and mist directly onto your skin
  4. Clarifying Day Oil – if skin is oily, warm 2-5 drops and press into skin that’s still moist from your Toner, alternatively Melissa Day Cream or Rose Day Cream Light
  5. If you have pimples apply Coverstick, our incredibly effective conceal and treat pimple zapping product.

Evening:

Initially and prior to using make-up just use: Cleansing Cream to start with and you may wish to include Clarifying Toner

Once make-up is being used:

  1. Soothing Cleansing Milk – to remove the dirt and dust your skin picks up during the day and to remove make-up and eye make-up
  2. You may still wish to do a secondary deeper cleanse with Cleansing Cream
  3. Clarifying Toner – close eyes and mist directly onto skin
  4. You may wish to use Night Serum which aids the night time processes of your skin, but never use a night cream, which is occlusive to the skin during your skin’s elimination phase overnight
