Wash your face daily.

  • Teenagers should be cleansing at least once a day in the shower, but twice daily, both morning and night is ideal.
  • Gentle cleansers are a great place to start.
  • Some of our favorites: EltaMD Foaming Cleanser, CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser, and Cetaphil DermaControl Oil Removing Foam Cleanser.
  • For those dealing with acne, benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid cleansers can exfoliate the skin and prevent clogging of the pores.

Wear a daily moisturizer with sunscreen every morning. 

  • Teens get a lot of daily sun exposure at school and playing sports. It is important to start wearing daily sunscreen to protect their skin from sun damage.
  • There are so many great products that are lightweight and do not feel like sunscreen.
  • Some of our favorites: EltaMD UV Clear SPF 46, CeraVe Ultra Light Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30.

Moisturize daily.

  • If you have oily or acne-prone skin, you might be inclined to skip moisturizer because you don't want to add more moisture and oil to your skin. However, moisturizing daily is one of the best things you can do for oily or acne-prone skin.
  • Daily moisturizing helps prevent dryness and irritation, contributing to clearer skin.
  • Some of our favorites: EltaMD Skin Recovery Light Moisturizer, CeraVe PM Facial Moisturizer.

Use non-comedogenic products.

  • One of the best tips for teenage skin care is to use non-comedogenic products.
  • Non-comedogenic skin care products are specifically formulated not to block pores and do not contribute to the pesky whiteheads or blackheads you're trying to prevent with your skincare routine.

Treat acne early on.

  • Teenagers need to address acne proactively.
  • Acne is common during puberty due to hormonal changes, however, it won't clear up on its own and can dramatically affect a teen's self-esteem and can also lead to permanent scarring.
  • Consult with our team of dermatologists and aestheticians to determine which skin care products are right for your teen's acne.

If you have questions about how to keep your teen's skin healthy, see one of our board-certified dermatologists or licensed aestheticians to develop a game plan that will treat existing concerns and avoid future problems.

Lash Lift & Tinting:

  • Lash lifting is a treatment that uses perming solutions to naturally lift and curl the lashes, making them appear longer and giving your eyes the appearance of being more open and bright.
  • Lash tinting is a treatment that makes your natural lashes appear darker and fuller, giving them a similar look as wearing mascara, without having to wear any.

Brow Lamination & Tint:

  • Brow lamination is a treatment that uses perming solutions to manipulate the brow hairs to fall into the desired design.
  • Brow tinting uses temporary tint to enhance the natural color of the brows, allowing them to appear darker and fuller.
