Do you have a tween who's caught up in the current skincare craze that seems to be sweeping TikTok and tween culture at the moment? Don't get me wrong, it's great that they're getting into skincare and sun protection early, but the main issue that arises is that they're often using too many and/or too harsh products for their skin. Young skin doesn't need as many actives as older skin does. The skincare product obsession is likely going to be their generation's version of our "apricot scrub" obsession!
Let me break down what is typically happening to tween skin and the main skin troubles that can arise at this stage of life.
During the tween to early teen years, young women may experience various changes in their skin due to puberty. Common changes include increased oil production leading to acne, the development of sweat and sebaceous glands, and changes in skin texture. Hormonal fluctuations can also contribute to variations in skin tone and may lead to heightened sensitivity.
It's imperative for them to establish a good skin hygiene routine, including gentle cleansing, moisturizing, drinking enough water, and sunscreen, to manage these changes and promote overall skin health.
The main skin concerns we start to see arise during this time frame are;
- Oily skin
- Skin sensitivity
- Enlarged pores
- Skin texture changes
- Scarring & hyperpigmentation from pimples and acne
These concerns are typically what makes it ever so tempting for young tweens to go for harsher products designed for more mature skin. It is definitely a time when confidence levels can very easily be affected and solutions to overcome this are very much in demand.
Now this is where my Acne Cleanse capsules have been so beneficial to so many across the globe. These capsules are a gentle, yet effective, natural formula that is easy to fit into the busiest of schedules. They have been expertly formulated to help regulate sebum production, speed up skin cell turnover (keeping pores free of debris and avoiding blackheads and whiteheads), reduce inflammation & help minimize skin texture. Its blend of traditional herbs, vitamins & botanicals targets the skin concerns at the root cause, rather than just addressing external symptoms like topical skincare.
What’s even better is if your tween struggles with capsules, you can simply open them & pop them into a smoothie.
Say goodbye to troubled tween skin the gentle way with the Acne Cleanse!
