Skin Care In Your Teens To Mid-Twenties
Posted by Lara Strickland in Skin Care
If you are in your teens to mid-twenties the skin conditions that you are contending with are most likely to be caused by oily skin. The hormonal changes that occur during your teenage years often trigger oily skin and breakouts. Make sure that your skin care regime focuses on controlling the oil production on your face and keeping your pores clear to prevent spotty skin. My Beauty Matches knows that spotty skin, which is most likely to occur in your teens and early twenties is not fun and so we have put together this skin care guide to help you get clear beautiful skin like Selena Gomez.
1. Acne treatment - Acne is one of those skin conditions that can be really frustrating and cause you to turn to harsh acne treatment cleansers and scrubs that actually just irritate your skin and make your acne worse. The best acne treatment is a good skin care routine that is gentle on your skin, clears pores and manages oil. Use a gentle foaming cleanser, which has the capacity to remove oil and dirt without irritating your skin. Look for beauty products that contain an active antibacterial ingredient such as witch hazel or tea tree oil, which will help to soak up any excess oil and purify your skin.
If you have acne prone skin it can be easy to think that you do not need a moisturiser, but infact if you starve your skin of moisture it will produce even more pore clogging oil to make up for it. Hydrate your skin with an oil free moisturiser at least once a day. Find your beauty match for the best cleansing and skin care products for your diet, skin type and budget.
2. Banish breakouts - If you are in your teens to mid twenties you are probably prone to the odd breakout whatever your skin type. Keep breakouts at bay by adding a blemish stick to your skin care regime. Look out for anti bacterial products such as witch hazel and tea tree oil, which will fight the bacteria in the blemish and reduce inflammation. Apply spot fighting beauty products such as Witch Blemish Gel as soon as you notice the spot and reapply as often as you like.
3. Purifying perfection - One of the best beauty tips for those in their teens to mid-twenties is to use purifying beauty products as part of your skin care regime. A great way to use this is to use a purifying mask once or twice a week. Clay based masks such as Botanics Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask are best for oily skin types as the will deep cleanse the skin and help to draw out any impurities. One word of warning don’t use a purifying mask before a big party as the purifying action may draw out any lurking spots.
