How To Choose The Best Teenage Skincare Products For Beginners ”
There are endless teenage skin care products in the market that could be overwhelming, especially because as a teenager, you are just getting started with your skincare and makeup routines. Choosing skincare products is not as easy as most people make it seem.
There are a lot of factors that go into choosing the best one that suits you the most. And needless to say, your skin is one of your most important organs, that we tend to put too much pressure on taking care of it and in the process, mess things up.
And since you don’t have too much experience as a teen, you tend to follow other people; your friends mostly. In the process, you do yourself more harm than good. Just because a product made your sister gorgeous skin doesn’t mean that it will do the same for you. Matter of fact, it might damage your skin completely.
That is why it is sometimes important to consult a professional (a beautician or a dermatologist) if you have tried treating your own acne to no avail. Also, there are just too many products you can get in the market. Here is how to choose the best one for your skin.
Getting teenage skin care products is easy in the market. Getting the right ones for you particularly is however not as easy. Here are some of the factors that you should keep in mind, before making that order;
Your Skin Type
Knowing your skin will save you a lot of hustle and bustle throughout your search for the products best suited for your skin. There aren’t necessarily bad products; it is usually using a product that doesn’t match your skin type. Examples of different skin types include oily skin, dry skin, and sensitive skin (they are most prone to acne). If you know your skin type but still can’t figure out the right ingredients, seek expert help.
Don’t Fall For The Ads And The Hype
Whether it is packaging or popularity, don’t fall for the trap. Well, it is always not a trap but it just isn’t good for you. if you are going to purchase a product because your favorite influencer recommended it, make sure it is also because it matches your skin type and is good for you.
Instead of paying attention to how good their skin looks, pay attention to their skin type and what problems they are claiming to have found a solution to. If it matches yours then it could be safe for your skin too.
Pay Attention To The Ingredients
This could be a hard task. Well, not unless you are Latin and can perfectly understand foreign languages. More often than not, even if we read the ingredients in these boxes, tubes, cans, and bottles, we don’t understand most things. But, there are those main ingredients that are perfectly understandable.
When you know your skin type, you would also know what skin products are good for you and which ones aren’t. You can also Google some ingredients if you don’t understand them on tubes. Your skin is worth all the effort, time, and resources put into it.
Don’t Fall For The ‘natural’
We tend to think that all things ‘natural’ are all things great. That is not always the case. Some skins also have reactions to natural oils and products. Sometimes the words natural or organic on product labels could also be a marketing trick and misleading.
This is one factor we don’t really care about when it comes to makeup and skincare products. Most of the time we rely on recommendations from friends and family (just because it worked for them) and go straight ahead to get the product without even doing a little background check.
Make sure to read reviews about the whole brand/ company and the particular products. See how other people like it. That can save you some regrets later too.
