3 Tips for Teen Skincare During Summer
Keeping your skin clean and healthy is important, especially during summer.
Teenagers may experience increased oil and acne due to rising temperatures
and humidity, and having a regular skincare routine can help prevent uncomfortable
If you’re trying to figure out a way to improve your skin, there
are 3 important things to keep in mind:
Keep your skin moisturized. While it might seem counterproductive if your skin is oily, keep it moisturized
is still important. Using an oil-free lotion can help. If your skin has
the moisture it needs, it will not need to produce as much oil, thus keeping
your skin clearer. Whether you put lotion on before going to bed or after
showering, it can help reduce the amount of excess oil in your skin. If
possible, get lotion that provides natural vitamins and minerals, such
as aloe, to provide an added benefit to your skin.
Keep your skin clean. Even if you aren’t outside, dirt and bacteria can gather on your
face throughout the day. It is important to keep your skin clean by washing
daily with a gentle cleanser. You can also use oil-blotting papers to
wipe off oil and dirt, but use these sparingly, as they may dry out your
skin. By working to keep your face clean, you can eliminate the amount
of dirt and oil that clogs your pores.
Keep your skin protected. While sunlight provides beneficial vitamin D, it also carries harmful
UV rays. When going outside, you should apply sunscreen to your face and
any exposed skin to help avoid premature aging and skin cancer. Some types
of sunscreen may irritate your skin, so it is important to get a brand
that works for you. If chemical-based sunscreen is too harsh, you can
try a natural one that will provide both moisture and protection.
