I hate to admit it, but I wasn’t always diligent about taking care of my skin, and I totally failed at teaching good habits to my oldest daughter when she was a tween and teen. In fact, SHE was the one that taught ME, as she was the example that I should have been for taking care of my face.
This year, I’ve had several conversations with my two daughters that still live at home about taking care of our skin – particularly the skin on our faces. My 17-year-old doesn’t normally wear makeup, so she didn’t think that washing her face regularly was important. She’s been struggling with breakouts the past 3 months or so.
In contrast, my 13-year-old does wear makeup, but often leaves her makeup removal routine to her morning shower….something I have been guilty of for years!
Here are three things that my teens and I have been discussing this past month:
1 – Washing your face before going to bed each night is a critical step to keeping your skin its healthiest. Remember that your skin collects dust and dirt (and everything else that is in the air and on our hands) throughout the day. Makeup actually acts as a magnet for all of that dirty stuff. The combination – makeup and dirt, for example – clogs your pores and leads to break outs, acne, uneven skin, etc.
2 – Even when you don’t wear makeup, you still need to wash your face each night. Like I mentioned above, makeup is not the only thing on your skin at the end of the day. Sweat, dirt, dead skin….those aren’t the kinds of things I want on MY pillow case at night when I’m trying to sleep.
3 – The right moisturizer is important, too…and facial moisturizer is not just for dry climates! Finding the right moisturizer for your kids type (dry, oily, combination, wrinkles, etc) can help your facial skin maintain its balance. When your skin gets either too oily OR too dry, many problems like acne will appear. Regularly moisturized skin will maintain a youthful look for longer, too. That’s a bonus for moms of teens, for sure!
The girls and I were able to stock up on some fantastic skin care products at Target last week. I’m in love with Neutrogena® Rapid Wrinkle Regenerating Cream and Aveeno® Positively Radiant Overnight Hydrating Facial. They both leave my skin feeling silky-smooth! The Aveeno® Positively Radiant Overnight Hydrating Facial makes my face feel cool and refreshed like nothing I’ve ever used before! I was also able to try Neutrogena® Hydro Boost Liquid Makeup. I love it because it covers well but does make my face feel like it’s bogged down with heavy makeup. I especially appreciated the applicator.
My younger daughter was so excited about trying Clean & Clear® Triple Clear Bubble Foam Cleanser. Foaming soaps are always more fun to use, and this was no exception. I think she may have had TOO much fun cleaning her face before bed…
