Disclosure: We’re excited to be bringing you this post through a partnership with Clean & Clear®.
With our oldest daughter, things were always a learning process for Colby and me. As she is the oldest, many of the experiences with her were the first time for all of us. She paved the way for her three younger sisters (as well as her brother), in many areas. The ins-and-outs of being a teenager being one of those experiences.
Everyday Skin Care Routine
When I think back to my own teenage years, I try to remember all of the things I handled along the way and consider what I learned. I’ve discovered that wisdom often comes from experience. From how to handle life situations to simple skin care tips. There’s a lot to consider as a parent when you think about it. And being the mother to four girls, I feel a responsibility to teach them all I know about being a girl, if you know what I mean. One of the best places to start, even at a young tween age, is the importance of an everyday skin care routine.
I must admit though, the girls have introduced me to a new frontier with make-up.
It’s never been something I’ve worn on even a semi-regular basis, so I had to do research on how to best take care of your skin when you do choose to wear it. Luckily, I enjoy research, especially on topics that help make me a better parent, and dove right in. Many of the skin care tips for teens I found were basic thoughts that I still, as an adult, continue myself.
Growing up, my sister and I used Clean & Clear® products even though our daily skin care routines differed. Therefore, knowing it worked for my sister and me, it was easy to recommend the same skincare products to my girls because it is a brand I’ve always known and trusted.
Jaden, not being a ray of sunshine in the mornings, has found that her favorite Clean and Clear product is the Morning Burst® Facial Cleanser. This oil-free face wash contains Vitamin C, Ginseng, and Bursting Beads® to gently exfoliate impurities. The invigorating citrus fragrance helps to wake her up every day and get her moving.
Jaci, always the more detailed when it comes to skin care routines, favors Clean & Clear’s Acne Triple Clear™ Bubble Foam Cleanser—which fights acne in 3 ways. It removes bad pore clogging oil, treats breakouts, and soothes skin while also helping to prevent future pimples. Plus, the Oil Absorbing Sheets keep oily skin at bay. She loves that they are easy to use anywhere, anytime. Knowing how much Jaci likes easy, that is probably her favorite feature of the blotting paper. I like that they change color when you use them so you can actually tell they are working.
It really comes down to making sure they understand the importance of having an everyday routine. For both of them, that skin care routine looks like this:
- Wash your face upon waking.
- Jaden uses Morning Burst® Facial Cleanser, which is an excellent way to start your daily routine.
- Jaci uses Acne Triple Clear™ Bubble Foam Cleanser in the AM to start her day removing pore-clogging oil while treating breakouts.
- Apply sunscreen to protect your skin from harmful UV rays.
- Moisturize your skin.
At night, remove makeup
- Clean & Clear’s Makeup Dissolving Facial Cleansing Wipes are great to gently wash away all traces of dirt, oil and makeup left behind from the day.
- Finally, exfoliate your skin with Clean & Clear’s Deep Action Exfoliating Scrub once every 1-2 days to deep cleanse into pores and exfoliate dead skin cells. The menthol will leave your skin feeling clean and refreshed with a tingly, cooling sensation.
Customize the routine based on your skin’s needs and drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated!
