The skin care starting point
Do you have a child in their tween or teenage years? Have you given any thought to what’s happening or about to happen to their face? You may not have even thought about it until just now, but let me tell you why you should…
If you have a daughter around the 11 to14-year-old mark, any moment now she’s going to discover make-up, and she’s going to dive in headfirst. Simultaneously, her hormones are going to kick into overdrive, causing all sorts of skin concerns such as acne, blackheads, blind pimples and oiliness. And the skin care regime you’re currently using on your own skin just won’t cut it for her as it’s clearly not suited for her young skin. So when it comes time to rinse her face at the end of the day, remove that make-up and help solve her skin care woes, what are you going to point her towards? Let us give you a couple of clues…
Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Wash is an alcohol-free daily-use cleanser that will be gentle to her young skin, swiftly removing grime and make-up, while delving deep into her pores to help prevent embarrassing breakouts down the line.
To ensure a thorough clean, team this face wash with a gentle toner and her skin will feel as soft and supple as it did before her hormones hit and she ever got her mitts on your make-up bag. We like Neutrogena Alcohol-Free Toner for its ability to recondition skin without leaving it feeling too dry and tight.
For both girls and boys around the delicate 12 to 17-year-old mark, oil control can be a big problem. Hormones are at an all time high, and oil production is right up there with the best of them.
Ensure your kids don’t suffer the shiny effects of oily skin by supplying them with an exfoliator that works to regulate oil production, unclog their pores and rid their skin of impurities, all the while helping to keep greasy shine at bay. Neutrogena Deep Clean® Shine Control Daily Scrub deposits rice proteins onto the skin to help combat and absorb excess oil for up to eight hours, meaning your kids are better protected for longer.
