Skin Care for Tween Skin

The tween years are a time of profound change—a beautiful metamorphosis. Initiating skincare for tweens with gentle plant remedies sets the stage for lifelong habits of nurturing and maintaining radiant, healthy skin.

During these exciting pre teen years, as the body grows and changes, skin tells its own story of transformation. The appearance of acne, a surge in oiliness, and a newfound sensitivity are nature's way of signaling the profound shifts happening within. It's a time when hormones begin to surge prompting the skin's oil glands to kick into higher gear. 

As the first signs of acne, excessive oil, and sensitive skin appear, tweens and teens may turn to mainstream acne solutions to get things under control.

However, these skin care products often end up doing more harm than good, stripping the skin barrier of its natural, protective oils and leaving it open to irritation, dehydration, dry skin, and an unfortunate cycle of breakouts.

Our philosophy for tween skin takes a gentler, more nurturing path. It emphasizes the power of botanical remedies to cleanse and detoxify the skin without undermining its natural defenses. This botanical-based approach not only preserves the skin's natural barrier but also introduces tweens to an effective skin care routine rooted in nature's remedies.

What Skin Care Should A Tween Use?

A tween skin care routine should, above all, be gentle and balancing–focusing on nurturing the skin's natural equilibrium rather than overwhelming it with harsh treatments.

Our suggested protocol for young skin includes the following steps:

Step 1: Purifying Cleansing Gel

Begin and end each day with the Purifying Cleansing Gel, an invigorating facial wash crafted with energizing Spearmint and nutrient-rich Alfalfa Leaf. Designed for oily or overactive skin, this formula cleanses deeply without over-drying, maintaining a smooth and soft complexion.

Step 2: Essential C Tonic

Refresh your skin with the Essential-C Tonic, imbued with Ginseng and a citrus trio of Bergamot, Orange Peel, and Grapefruit. This exhilarating toner delivers a bright burst of Vitamin C and antioxidants, whisking away dullness and rejuvenating the complexion. Ideal for each skin type, it's especially beneficial for oily, combination, or acne-prone skin.

Step 3: Clarifying Dermagel

Address blemishes with the Clarifying Dermagel, a lightweight yet potent spot treatment  blending antiseptic herbal remedies like Thyme, Tea Tree, and Myrrh with hydrating Aloe. This innovative gel strikes a balance, treating acne-prone areas to help balance oil production  without upsetting the skin's moisture equilibrium.

Step 4: Epi-Peel

Up to three times a week micro-exfoliating the skin with Epi-Peel, blended with Far West Native Spearmint, Moroccan Rosemary and mineral-rich Kaolin Clay cleanses, refines, and illuminates the complexion.

Step 5: Luminous Morning Crème

Finish the routine with Luminous Morning Crème, our lightest moisturizer, perfect for daytime use. Formulated to help clarify, illuminate and protect the skin, it is perfectly supportive of an oily, combination or blemish-prone complexion. With uplifting citrus essences - including Neroli and Sweet Orange - this refreshing Crème revitalizes both skin and senses, promoting a clear, glowing complexion.

Beyond topical treatments, the overall well-being of the skin is deeply influenced by lifestyle choices. A balanced diet, rich in fruits and vegetables–such as tomatoes, carrots, berries, leafy greens, and avocados—, supports skin health from the inside out, while staying hydrated with plenty of water throughout the day flushes toxins and keeps the skin supple and vibrant. Encouraging tweens to limit sugar and processed foods can also have a profound impact on their skin's balance and clarity.

Physical activity plays a role in healthy teen skin, too, increasing circulation and promoting the body's natural detoxification processes. And in our fast-paced world, the importance of mindfulness and stress reduction can help manage the hormonal changes that are often reflected in the skin. Simple practices like meditation or finding moments of calm can make a significant difference in skin health and an overall sense of well-being for those of any age.

Of course, embracing skin-friendly habits—keeping the skin clean and makeup-free as often as possible, and being mindful of promptly cleansing after exercise activities—helps prevent clogged pores and breakouts. This, along with the thoughtful selection of gentle, botanical skincare products, sets teens on a truly holistic wellness path and healthy skin habits for life.
