As promised, we're back with a new post about grooming routines, but this week we're focusing on teenagers.
The first factor to consider when building your skin care routine is age. Depending on age, skin care concerns change without our will as a result of the aging process. People in their 40s and 50s may be focused on treating fine lines, 30s focus on hydration, while teens and 20s want to get rid of acne and oily skin.
Today we focus on the grooming routine for teenagers. This is completely different from routines for other age groups because teenagers are dealing with hormones that affect their skin through excess oil production and acne.
1. Make-up remover + Oil-based Cleanser = GENTLE BLACK DEEP CLEANSING OIL
It may seem strange to use oil-based products on your face if you have oily skin, but on the contrary, one reason your skin produces so much oil is because it needs more! We recommend GENTLE BLACK DEEP CLEANSING OIL from Dear, Klairs.
2. Water-based cleanser = SALICYLIC ACID DAILY GENTLE CLEANSER or RICH MOIST FOAMING CLEANSER
After the oil-based cleanser you should use a water-based cleanser to completely remove any traces of makeup, oils or build-up. For this step, we recommend Dear, Klairs RICH MOIST FOAMING CLEANSER , which is a moisturizing product containing aloe leaf extract that soothes irritated skin. If you want a stronger product to fight acne constantly, we recommend COSRX SALICYLIC ACID DAILY GENTLE CLEANSER , which contains 0.5% salicylic acid (BHA).
After cleansing the skin, it is important to balance the pH level, which is the main purpose of applying a toner. If large pores are a problem for you, try COSRX's TWO IN ONE PORELESS POWER LIQUID . It softens excess oil and makes pores appear smaller. Another option is SUPPLE PREPARATION FACIAL TONER by Dear, Klairs, a nourishing and gentle toner that balances pH levels while soothing, healing and hydrating the skin.
4. Essence = GALACTOMYCES 95 TONE BALANCING ESSENCE
It is very important not to skip this step of the routine as the essence prepares your skin for the next steps. In short, the essence helps the skin better absorb the ingredients in the products to use them to their maximum potential. We recommend a skin-hydrating nourishing essence like GALACTOMYCES 95 TONE BALANCING ESSENCE by COSRX, suitable for all skin types.
5. Serum = GREEN TEA SEED SERUM
At this step, we recommend GREEN TEA SEED SERUM from Innisfree. Serum site contain a special type of green tea beneficial for skin hydration. The serum brightens the complexion and is quickly absorbed into the skin without leaving an oily feeling.
6. Face mask = GOODBYE REDNESS CENTELLA MASK
For teenagers, an exceptional choice is the GOODBYE REDNESS CENTELLA MASK sheet mask from Benton. This hydrating mask will help you get rid of redness because it contains Centella Asiatica, an ingredient perfect for soothing irritated skin.
7. Moisturizing cream = MIDNIGHT BLUE CALMING CREAM
For this step we recommend Dear,Klairs MIDNIGHT BLUE CALMING CREAM , which is ideal for irritated or sensitive skin. The cream is special because it contains Guaiazulene, a natural ingredient extracted from chamomile oil that soothes the skin, while Centella Asiatica helps to hydrate and remove irritation. In case you do not use sun cream and you have burns on your skin, it is recommended to use the cream also for the evening routine because Guaiazulene helps to regenerate the skin, being often found in creams against burns.
8. Sunscreen = INTENSIVE TRIPLE CARE SUNSCREEN
The best way to take care of your skin is to prevent sunburn by applying SPF50 cream. As a teenager, it's the perfect time to start using sunscreen. Applying sunscreen is the best way to prevent aging. We recommend the cream from Innisfree INTENSIVE TRIPLE CARE SUNSCREEN SPF 50 + PA++++ which brightens the skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles, protecting the skin from UV rays. It has a long-lasting effect and is water-resistant, without feeling greasy on the skin.
