Teen Skin Care Essentials: Dos and Don'ts

Hey, lovely people! Navigating the teen years can be quite the rollercoaster, and when it comes to skin care, it's no different. But don't sweat it – Lumi Glo Skin is here to guide you through the dos and don'ts of teen skincare. Whether you're battling breakouts, oiliness, or just aiming for that glow, we've got your back!

Understanding Teen Skin

What's Up With Teen Skin?
During your teenage years, your body is like a live concert of changes, and your skin is one of the main stages. Hormones are doing the cha-cha, leading to more oil, and sometimes, the dreaded breakouts. But hey, it's all part of the journey.

The Dos:

  1. Gentle Cleansing: Kickstart and wrap up your day with a mild cleanser. Imagine you're handling a baby chick – gentle and caring. This helps keep your skin clean without overdoing it.

  2. Moisturise Wisely: Even if your skin feels like an oil slick, it needs hydration. Hunt for lightweight, moisturisers that keep your skin happy and hydrated without clogging your pores.

  3. Sunscreen Is Your BFF: The sun might give you that Insta-worthy glow, but it's not really your skin's friend. Daily SPF is a must to shield your skin from Mr. Sun's not-so-nice side.

  4. Eat, Drink, and Be Merry (For Your Skin): Guzzle water like you're stranded in the desert, and eat your greens (and reds, and yellows). Your skin will thank you with a natural glow.

  5. Exfoliation Station: Gently exfoliate to say goodbye to dead skin cells. Think of it as spring cleaning for your face.

The Don'ts:

  1. Over-Washing: Washing more than twice a day can make your skin go haywire, stripping it of its natural oils and inviting more breakouts.

  2. Hands Off!: Pimples might seem like they're begging to be popped, but resist the urge. Picking leads to scars and more zits. It's a no-win game.

  3. One-Size-Fits-All? Nope!: Your skin is unique, just like you. Customise your skincare routine to your skin type – be it oily, dry, or a combo deal.

  4. Makeup Mayhem: We get it, makeup is fun. But let your skin breathe. Go for products that won't clog your pores and give it a rest now and then.

  5. Patch Test Patience: New product? Do a patch test first. This little step can save your skin from a big reaction.


Q: Should I change my pillowcase often?
A: Yes! Once a week is ideal. Pillowcases can be a playground for oils and bacteria, and those aren't the kind of friends your face needs.

Q: Does what I eat affect my skin?
A: You bet. Foods high in sugar and fat can be party poopers for your skin, leading to breakouts. Balance is the key to a happy skin diet.

Q: Will my skin change as I get older?
A: Absolutely. Your skin will evolve just like you do. Keep tuning into its needs and changing your routine accordingly.
