During your teens, your hormone levels spike, which when it comes to your skin means excessive oil production. The main focuses of a skincare regimen for teens should be dedicated to balancing your skin and controlling oil production. The rising levels of testosterone also increase sebum (oil) production, making breakouts more likely as the buildup of oil blocks your pores and encourages blackheads and pimples to form. Plus, as you go through these hormonal changes, you start to produce more keratin (a protein that protects the upper layers of your skin), which makes your skin thicker, and therefore contributes to blocked pores. With the over production of oil and increased production of keratin, the skins microbiome can fall out of balance leading to an excessive amount of bad bacteria.
The first step of any good skincare regimen is a great cleanser. This is a simple product that will help balance your skins microbiome, regulate oil production, help to unclog pores as well as reduce breakouts. It is also one of the easiest products for a teen to use daily.
The second step would be a treatment product that would reinforce the benefits of the cleanser with stronger active ingredients that can travel deeper into the skin offering even more effective results. A great suggestion for this step would be the Probiotic Instant Resurfacing Pads.
