What is the Right Age to Start a Skincare Routine?

When it comes to skincare, there is no one-size-fits-all answer as every individual's skin is different. However, it's essential to start taking care of your skin from a young age. Basic skincare routines should be introduced at the age of 12-14 years. A good routine will include a gentle cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen. As time passes, the routine can be adjusted according to the skin type and the concerns. It's suggested to seek professional guidance from an esthetician who can tailor and recommend the products and techniques best suited to your skin type.

The Essential Steps of a Skincare Routine for Preteens and Teenagers

A skincare routine doesn't have to be complicated. In fact, a simple and consistent

cleansing is the first and most important step in any great skin care routine. We understand that choosing the right products can be daunting, which is why we offer a comprehensive guide step by step how to look after your skin. With a focus on teenagers who are experiencing skin irritation, we offer simple steps to prevent breakouts and keep skin looking its best. Our Guinot, Paris products are gentle and effective, helping customers achieve a radiant and vibrant glow.

1. Cleansing

Cleansing your skin is one of the most important and essential steps to achieving healthy skin. We recommend using a gentle Guinot cleanser to remove dirt, oil, and pollution without irritating your skin. Our advice is to use warm (not hot) water when cleansing your face. Hot water can strip the skin of its natural oils, leading to dryness and irritation.

Be sure to use a clean towel to dry your face and avoid rubbing too hard. By cleansing your skin morning and night, you can help prevent breakouts and keep your skin looking healthy! With so many choices of skin care products available this days, it could be over whelming to choose the right product for your skin.

2. Moisturizing

Adding a moisturizer to your daily routine is crucial to maintaining a healthy and youthful complexion. When choosing moisturizer for your skin, choose an oil-free, water based product. Choose formula that are free of harsh ingredients and are suitable for people with sensitive skin. Whether you are dealing with dry or oily skin, your moisturizer need to meet your skincare needs and help you achieve a radiant glow.

Due to hormone fluctuations that occur throughout puberty, teenagers most commonly deal with oily T-zones and maybe acne, particularly closed comedons like whiteheads on the forehead. As well develop blackheads around nose and chin area. If you straggle with any of the above issues, this is the time to seek professional advice.

Keep your skin hydrated by applying a thin layer of moisturizer to clean, dry skin every morning and evening.

3. Sunscreens

Protecting your skin from the sun is essential in preventing skin damage. Remember, sun damage is cumulative. Starting from as early when you were only 10, when you’re 15, when you’re 20 and 30, it all adds up. And that’s what leads to more skin serious issues down the line and that includes risk to develop a skin cancer and pigmentation.

These three important steps and products make a great skincare routine, but if your still notices some other imperfections like acne, dry patches, or any other skin concerns, consult us at Skin Care Toronto for individualized recommendations and prescription treatments.
