Among the top skin problems for teens is excess oiliness and acne. For some teens it’s just an occasional pimple, yet, for some others it’s an aggressive breakout. Increased hormone levels coupled with increased oiliness of the skin often goes hand in hand with blemishes, whiteheads or blackheads. Teenagers have struggled with skin-aches since the dawn of time.

Further, today’s teens are growing up in a selfie and Instagram driven age. Being constantly under the selfie spotlight, they have become more conscious of their skin and what it takes to keep it glamorous and glowing. Apart from that being a motivation - teens have also become more health conscious and along with eating right they also care about the right products for their skin.

The first step towards a clean and clear skin is to re-evaluate the products that are applied. Choose Products that are powerful enough to remove excess oil, yet, free from aggressive surfactants so as to avoid irritation and inflammation.

Organic products that have all the goodness of nature and few to almost null side effects will give the teenage skin the gentle care it requires.

Here are a few things to consider for your teenager’s skincare:

Cleansing

Regular cleansing is one of the most effective ways to control acne. The extra oil that is generated sticks the dead skin cells together, leading to build up and clogged pores. Cleansing with gentle cleansers will ensure that this does not happen and at the same time they don’t damage and dry the skin. Natural skincare products are gentle and do not lead to over aggressive cleaning that results in increased oil production and breakouts.

Acne prone skin

For acne prone skin, choosing a moisturizer could be difficult. Look for lightweight textures with balancing and soothing ingredients – floral waters, plant extracts – etc. Hydration is extremely important as dried out skin automatically starts producing more oil making the skin look and feel worse. 100% natural skincare products such as rose water are absorbed into the skin, soothe the irritated skin and helps balance the skin.

Non-clogging make up

It’s quite understandable to use make up to hide blemishes. But, it’s essential to also understand that heavy foundations often make things worse.

This gives your skin a long term – fresh and radiant look.

Deodorant

Care for Your Skin - As the summer sets in

Roses 4.jpg

As summer sets in and the weather gets warmer, the unforgiving heat and humidity can wipe the glow off your skin.  This change in climate takes its toll, making oily skin look oilier and dry skin look patchier. The heat causes the pores on your skin to open and these eventually get clogged with dirt and oil, leading to pimples and acne that leave blemishes on your face.

Summers can be brutal for your skin and hence, summer skincare is significantly different than that of winter. Here are a few tips to help you hold on to that radiant and healthy skin as the temperature rises and humidity sets in.

Unfortunately, most of the skin care products you find on the shelves of chemists, department stores and even cosmetic stores are loaded with chemicals and are known to do more harm than good. Caring for your skin in summer needs something that’s more soothing, gentle and healing.

Rose water, among all the organic products, is known for its soothing and healing capabilities. It is not just a cosmetic, but rose water is a therapeutic and has the healing power of nature.

So, as the weather gets warmer, here are a few changes you can make to your skincare routine:

Change your Face Wash

In summer, the first switch you must make is to replace your face wash. Your summer face wash must be able to draw out the excess oil from your skin.  For dry skin, a non-foaming cleanser will do the trick. As you wash your face many times a day, a spritz of rose water mist will definitely help heal your sun-affected skin and keep it refreshed.

Minimal Make Up

Under the intolerant sun, nothing seems to help pamper your skin. Keep the makeup to a minimum and use the healing power of nature to keep your skin in good health. Light foundation and sunscreen are a good idea. Apart from these, make sure that you use natural products, especially rose water, as a part of your daily skincare routine.  

Organic Products to Repair Sun Damage

You cannot keep running for the shade to avoid the sun! Using sunscreen or a hat could be a good cover, but sun damage is inevitable – particularly on the face, which is directly touched by the sun’s rays. Organic rose water, is known to help fade the sun spots and blemishes, and even out the skin tone. It also has Vitamin C, which is a perfect fixer for sun-induced skin damage!

Sweet Smelling Naturally

Rose water is sweet smelling and free from chemical additives. It can be used as a natural deodorant especially in summers when the weather is warm. Purvari’s rose petal mist is conveniently portable and you can carry it along when you are on the go.

As the weather changes, and your skin begins to feel the impact, it's essential that you make a few changes to your skincare routine too! !
