Teen Choice: Natural Skincare
August 10, 2011
If there were ever a better time in life to discover the benefits of natural skincare products, it would have to be
the teenage years. The oiliness, blemishes, dry patches and other general skin issues that result from hormonal
changes, late nights, and crammed schedules are a challenge to any teen. But skincare products with harsh
chemicals are not the only option for dealing with these challenges. Especially when nature already provides a
bounty of essential oils and botanical extracts that deliver the gentle, effective care young skin needs.
One great option is 100% pure Australian tea tree oil, an essential oil that helps reduce blemishes and oil, and
maintain the clear, glowing skin every teen wants. Tea Tree Oil Facial Cleansing Pads are not only effective on
skin, but also ultra-convenient to use and ultra-easy to carry in any daypack or messenger bag.
Lavender is another essential oil known for its soothing effect, while jojoba oil, argan oil and a host of plant
extracts provide necessary moisturizing and conditioning even for oily/combination skin. It’s best to look for
cleansers or lotions that include any of these incredible natural ingredients. And do a little research. Ask friends.
Chances are there’s a natural alternative out there that will work for you. You’ll look and feel better for it
CLEAR SKIN TIPS FOR TEENS:
Eat Right, Sleep Right.
Eating properly, drinking lots of water and getting a decent night’s sleep directly impacts the health of your
skin, so try keeping to a schedule that helps you handle all three—even with a full class load.
Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize.
Even if you have oily/combination skin it is absolutely important to keep your face properly moisturized. Look for
an oil-free or oil-control lotion. Thoroughly Clean Oil Control Lotion doesn’t clog pores and moisturizes without
leaving behind a shiny finish.
The Future Is Now.
The skincare choices you make now can have a lasting, positive effect on the health and appearance of
your skin ten years from now. So protect your face. Use sunblock daily and choose products that are gentle on
