●Common problems for teenagers

What steps or products are really important for their skin. So whoever tells them or whatever comes in their mind they just apply without thinking.

We have divided natural skincare for teenage skin into two routines
The most important steps of natural skincare for teenager skin are performed during day time. So daytime routine is the most important part of natural skincare for teenage skin. Here the steps for daytime routine.
•Face wash or cleanser
➊Face wash or Cleanser
Apply fash wash or cleanser because they are both the same things. You can use any of them. Apply a light face wash-like Cerave on your face for 1 minute with plain water. And don’t wash your face more than once a day. Always do a double cleansing because the amount of junk or makeup particles that were left will also be washed away.
If you cannot afford any face wash then I would recommend some DIY as a face wash. I know you are a teenager because once upon a time we were teenagers too.

As a teenager, it is not recommended to use a store-bought toner because they contain some harsh substance that could irritate your skin. There are some DIY for toning. You can use micellar water as a toner. Apply a little on a cotton pad and scrub your face with it. If micellar water doesn’t suit you then take it.

There is a lot of emphasis on this in every routine. Applying moisturizer is necessary for every routine at every age. So don’t forget to apply moisturizers in your teenage years. Some teenagers think that they already have oily skin so they don’t need to apply moisturizers but this is wrong. Your skin is producing a lot of oil because your skin needs it. When your skin cells will get moisturized by moisturizer then your glands will also produce some less sebum or oil. You can use some good moisturizer. My recommendation is Olay Regenerist. If you can’t afford then here are some DIY
You can use almond or olive oil as a moisturizer
▸1 tbsp aloe vera
▸1 tbsp almond oil
▸1 capsule vitamin C
Now your super homemade moisturizer is ready for any time use.
Always wear sunscreen even while you’re indoors. Sunscreen protects your skin from so much damage that you will not see instantly. But the damage will just keep on happening over the years and you will age a lot faster. Dermatologists (skin doctors) strongly emphasize using sunscreen whether it is cold or hot.
At night it is ok not to use sunscreen but when there is sun then you have to apply sunscreen. We are emphasizing sunscreen because UV rays damage so much face skin by damaging collagen fiber. Collagen fiber is responsible for face skin tightening. Once your collagen starts to damage your skin becomes saggy (dheeli dheeli). Here is the sunscreen recommendation Ulta sunscreen.
▸2 tbsp Aloe vera gel (it acts as a natural sunscreen protect our skin from the sun)
In protecting our face skin we often forget our lips. We also have to take care of them. You can use any vaseline for your face or any lip balm that you like.
Nighttime skincare is the same as the morning skincare routine. A nighttime routine is also important in natural skincare for teenage skin.
The cleanser or face wash applied in the daytime now in nighttime skincare will be applied as the same. Same in the case of tonner, moisturizer, and lip balm. But one thing which you have applied in the morning will not be applied here. Yes, it is sunscreen. We had applied sunscreen due to the sun in the morning. Now the sunscreen step is omitted from this routine.
The weekly routine is also important in natural skincare for teenage skin. Some people tell this routine to do daily but in my opinion, these methods are for mature skin and if you are in your teens then it is better to do once a week. If you really think this is very important to you then you can apply it twice a week.
Exfoliation is a very important step in a mature skincare routine. But in the teenage, it is important but not as important as the rest of the steps. If you don’t know about exfoliation then let me tell you exfoliation is a process in which dead cells of your skin are removed from your skin. It is also a quite important step at this age. It will take your skin to another level. You can use a chemical exfoliator for your skin like peter Thomas. It is for all types of skin. If you can’t afford it then I am here to solve it.

Some General tips for natural skincare for teenage skin
Try to avoid makeup in your daily routine. But if you have a party function then a light base and blush, mascara and lipstick will be enough to attend a party. Don’t even use eyeliner. The excess makeup requires a lot of care while removing. And as a teen, it becomes a little bit difficult to manage. So try to avoid it.
▸Blow pimples from hand
As a teenager getting a pimple is not a big deal. Don’t blow the pimples with your hand. The main reasons for acne scars and blemishes are blown-up pimples with your hand. So bacteria attacks on the pimple place and can cause different types of rashes. If you have a pimple then just a toothpaste on it. It really gives comfort.
Always drink 8 to 10 glasses of water daily.
As a teenager, it is very pleasing to eat fast food. Girls and boys love to eat junk food like pizza burgers, fried food, and desserts. This is one of the biggest causes to get pimples on the face. Yes, you can eat once a week but making a routine of it is so bad.
Exfoliation is very necessary for skin. As I told you earlier it helps to remove dead cells from the skin but as a teenager don’t use a company-made exfoliator.
Use 1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp of almond or olive oil
! tbsp of coconut oil and blend them well.
It will help you to eliminate black and whiteheads, dullness, and redness from your face.
Don’t forget to exfoliate your lips in all of these. Apply vaseline or lip balm regularly on your lips.
▸Hands & Feet
Hands and feet are the part of the body that faces the sun, dirt, and impurities. You don’t need to go to the spa or no need to have a manicure and pedicure. Just exfoliating your hands and feet is enough.
Skincare routine is necessary for every age of man and woman. Because taking care of your skin is everyone’s responsibility. Every age skincare routine has its steps to be followed. We cannot follow steps of 30 years skincare routine in teenage.
What are some habits that are making me look older?
There are some habits if you will not adopt you will look older then your age 1. Wear not sunscreen. As i said sunscreen protects you from UV rays of sun that destroys your collagen fiber which is responsible for your skin tightness. If collagen fiber destroys then your skin will face sagginess, fine lines and wrinkles. 2. If you do not follow a proper skincare routine according to your age than you could face aging concerns. 3. If you smoke then leave smoking because cigarette makes your lips dark and smokers always end up with lines above and below their lips.
Is toner is ok for teenager?
Yes toning is a part of skincare routine for teenager but do not use a company product for toning specially in teenage. In teenage our skin is sensitive and company made toner may contains some harsh substances that could irritate your skin. So use DIY for toning.
Should I use moisturizer every day?
Using a moisturizer is a very essential part of skincare routine. You cannot skip any of these steps without recommendation of dermatologist. Because moisturizers keep you skin hydrated and moisturized and prevent your skin from outer damage like dirt and bacteria.
