If you want to have beautiful skin, you have to start taking care of it from a young age. When you are young, your metabolism is faster, and even if you have wounds, sunburns, acne, etc., the recovery time is faster. But accumulated skin damage will leave permanent marks. Simply take a photo with a UV camera to see the damage caused by UV rays on your skin. In addition to preventing UV rays, good skin care can reduce the effort needed to repair your skin in the future.
Entering puberty, hormonal changes can cause noticeable changes in the skin, making it prone to oiliness and acne. Skin care during adolescence can be divided into four categories: cleansing, moisturizing, treatment, and protection.
Cleansing: It is essential to cleanse your skin every day to remove dirt, oil, and dead skin. Removing excess oil from the skin can prevent the formation of pimples and acne. However, do not over-cleanse your skin, as it can stimulate acne.
If your skin is oily, combination, or normal, you can consider using a cleanser with salicylic acid. Salicylic acid is common in oil-control products, which can reduce oil secretion and unclog pores. Mild glycolic acid can also help remove dead skin and promote skin renewal.
Skin during puberty can be easily affected by makeup products. If possible, avoid wearing makeup. But if you need to wear makeup, try to avoid using products containing alcohol or fragrance, and always remove your makeup thoroughly.
Moisturizing: To keep the skin moisturized, you need to add water, such as washing your face or taking a shower. But the effect will only last for a minute or two. To moisturize your skin, you need to balance the oil and water, keeping the water on the surface of the skin and not easily evaporated. Using moisturizer in the morning and evening is the easiest way to achieve this. When choosing a moisturizer, pay attention to the ingredients and whether they are suitable for your skin type. Otherwise, the oil glands may be clogged, leading to acne. For example, heavy moisturizers are not suitable for oily skin. For dry skin or eczema, heavy moisturizers are recommended. Regardless of your skin type, it is best to use a suitable moisturizer to replenish lost oil and water after cleansing.
