Skincare Routine for Tweens & Teens

As a parent, we want to give our tween & teen the best possible start in life, and that includes promoting good personal hygiene habits. One of the habits we believe is so beneficial for tweens is a regular skincare routine. Establishing a skincare routine at a young age can help your tween or teen develop healthy habits a love and confidence for the skin they are in. Skincare to us isn’t about beauty, that’s a benefit, but it is really about confidence. Tweens & teens have so many outside influences these days, much more than when we were young and so by promoting an environment where they can be confident in their own skin, and hopefully avoiding those awkward teen acne years we can help them navigate teenage years just that little bit easier.

That's where we come in! Vee Organics is here to show you the basics of a skincare routine for tweens, including how to choose the right products and establish a daily regimen that works for your tween. So, let's dive in and give your tween the gift of confidence with healthy, glowing skin.

What A Skincare Routine for Tweens & teens Should Look Like

A skincare routine for tweens should be simple, gentle, and effective. The key is to choose a specially formulated routine that doesn’t take too much effort but has those powerful ingredients to get the job done right.A basic routine should include cleansing, exfoliating (no more than 2 to 3 times a week), and moisturising. Add a face oil after the moisturiser if your tween or teen has signs of acne to keep that at bay. 

The routine can either be done first thing in the morning or at night before bed. Our milk/gel hybrid Cleanser helps to remove dirt, dead skin cells and pollutants while preserving the natural protective barrier. Our exfoliant should be used a maximum of 2 to 3 times per week after the cleanser. It is such a gentle formulation that just helps to remove any of that excess grime that can clog up pores and long-term lead to build up causing acne.

Finally, a moisturiser will help keep their skin hydrated and protect it from environmental stressors. Depending on your tween's skin type and concerns, you may also want to include our fab face oil which has been formulated to fight and keep that acne at bay. The most important thing is to be consistent and establish a routine that works for your tween or teen’s unique needs. By incorporating a skincare routine into their daily routine, your tween can develop healthy habits and maintain the confidence you get from beautiful skin for years to come.

Skincare Routine for Tweens & Teens Frequently Asked Questions

 Why is it important for tweens & teens to have a skincare routine?

At Vee Organics, we believe that a skincare routine for tweens is an essential part of personal hygiene & self-care. As they enter adolescence, tweens start to experience changes in their bodies, including their skin. A regular skincare routine can help promote healthy skin and prevent issues like acne, blackheads, and dryness. Plus, a good skincare routine can help boost your tween"s confidence and self-esteem.

 By taking care of their skin, your tween will learn to value themselves and their health. Our natural, gentle skincare products are specially formulated for young, delicate skin, so you can be confident that your tween is using products that are safe and effective. So, start your tween on a healthy skincare routine with Vee Organics and watch their skin and confidence flourish!

 At what age should tweens start a skincare routine?

A skincare routine for tweens should be established as soon as they begin to experience changes in their skin, which can be from around 7 years old. However, it"s important to note that every child is different, and some may not experience significant changes until later. The key is to pay attention to your tween's skin and adjust their routine accordingly. 

At Vee Organics, we recommend starting with a basic skincare routine that includes cleansing, exfoliation (2-3 times per week), and moisturising, using products that are formulated specifically for young, delicate skin. As your tween gets older, you can add additional steps and products to their routine to address specific skin concerns.

 How often should tweens exfoliate?

When it comes to exfoliation, tweens should aim to do it no more than 2-3 times per week. Exfoliating is important because it helps get rid of dead skin cells and promotes healthy skin cell regeneration, leaving their skin looking brighter, smoother, and more even. But be careful not to overdo it, as too much exfoliation can lead to dryness, irritation, and even pimples. 

So, if you’re looking for that perfect product, we"ve got you covered with a gentle exfoliating scrub that’s perfect for your tween's young and delicate skin. Our anti-inflammatory and healing ingredients make sure your young one's skin stays healthy and vibrant, so your tween can enjoy great skin and confidence. 

Will a skincare routine prevent pimples & acne?

Absolutely! That is why Vee Organics was created. Although we cannot guarantee that by using our routine your tween or teen will never get a pimple in their life, starting a consistent skincare routine early on can really help to skin those awkward teen acne years. The reason we are so confident in making this claim is because our products use powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-acne ingredients, so by using these products early on, you really can prevent pimples from forming. Any of those suckers that do manage to get through won’t be as harsh or inflamed looking (that redness around them) as what might have been.

Our range of skincare products are specifically formulated for your tween"s young and gentle skin. The natural ingredients will help keep their skin healthy and glowing whilst avoiding harsh chemicals that can irritate or dry out the skin. With the right skincare routine and a little patience, your tween can have healthy, pimple-free skin that they'll feel proud to show off.

Can tweens wear sunscreen?

Absolutely! Sunscreen is important for people of all ages, including tweens. In fact, it"s especially important for tweens since their skin is more delicate and prone to damage. Sunscreen helps protect the skin from harmful UV rays that can cause sunburn, premature ageing, and even skin cancer. 

When choosing a sunscreen for your tween, be sure to look for a broad-spectrum sunscreen that offers protection against both UVA and UVB rays. It's also important to choose a sunscreen with a high SPF (sun protection factor) of at least 50.

What kind of ingredients should tweens avoid in skincare products?

When establishing a skincare routine for tweens, they should avoid skincare products that contain harsh or potentially harmful ingredients. Ingredients such as sulphates, parabens, and synthetic fragrances are commonly found in skincare products, but can be irritating to the skin and even disrupt the body"s natural hormones. Alcohol, synthetic dyes, and phthalates are also best avoided. When shopping for skincare products for your tween, it's best to look for natural and organic products that are free from these harmful ingredients. 

At Vee Organics, we believe that everything you touch or touches you matters which is why we use only the highest quality, natural ingredients in our products. Our ingredients are carefully selected to be gentle and nourishing for delicate tween skin, and our products are formulated without the use of harmful chemicals or additives. It's important to take care of your tween's skin without putting them at risk of exposure to harmful ingredients.
