Navigating puberty is like riding a rollercoaster - one minute you're soaring through growth spurts, and the next you're caught up in mood swings and irritating skin surprises. Most of these fluctuations happen due to hormonal changes taking place in your body. It can be overwhelming all these bodily transformations, but lucky for you there are some things you do have control over, like your skincare routine. 

Most common teen skin issues

So what happens exactly to your skin during this phase in your life?
Puberty hits, and hormones go wild, especially testosterone, triggering oil glands to throw an oily bash on your face. The oily skin attracts all the party crashers - dust, grime, and dead skin cells - clogging up pores and inviting acne to join the fun. Add in some teen stress, a splash of sweat, and maybe a hint of neglected skincare, and voilà - the recipe for a skin disaster🙁That's why teen skin needs some extra attention with a solid skincare routine in place.
Teenagers' skin is sensitive, acne-prone, and susceptible to breakouts, blackheads dry spots, etc. Due to hormonal changes, acne is teenagers' most common skin problem. As the body experiences hormonal shifts, there's often an increase in sebum production, which can lead to the development of blackheads. But how can we prevent this from happening? We will share some tips for you.

Do you know the truth?

Teenagers spend a lot of their time on their phones, scrolling through social media. TikTok is indeed an entertaining app but also can be used to spread misinformation. Many brands have seen the value of marketing through TikTok and use it to their advantage, they make various claims about their products. But are those really true? Always check if they speak the truth about their products. Honesty is for us one of the most important things. Many influencers show their skincare routine, but you shouldn’t copy them. Everyone's skin is different so why should your routine be the same? When in doubt ask for advice of the Nourished team via DM or email at 



Keep it simple teens!

You don’t have to buy ten different products and have an hour-long routine. Or become a skincare expert. Young skin doesn’t need retinol or strong vitamins. Just keep it simple with 3 basic steps:

  1. Always cleanse your face. Yes, even when you get home late from partying. Never sleep with your makeup, if you want clean and clear skin. This is the most important step for teenagers, because of the production of extra oil. 
  2. Moisturize your skin in the morning and night to keep it hydrated, prevent dryness, and balance skin texture. This promotes faster cell turnover and new skin cell creation.
  3. Don’t forget to apply SPF! Ensuring sun protection is crucial at any age. Even if you are a teenager and won't be outside much, applying SPF daily can help prevent UV damage, sunburn, and premature skin ageing, and lower the risk of skin cancer. This mineral Sunscreen stick with SPF 30 from Attitude is easy to apply and sticky hands free. Or try this Superfood Camouflage Foundation SPF15. It evens out your complexion, nourishes your skin, and protects your skin from sun damage, we are a fan!
