The Perfect Skin Care Routine for Tweens

The awkward stage of being a preteen and a young teenager — “tween” — we’ve all been there. We often ask our mom, “are we supposed to switch to much harsher products or should we stick to kids products to protect our skin from harmful chemicals?” It’s a confusing period in our adolescent life where we don’t really know where we belong yet.


Here’s the thing, it’s the stage to learn about skin care routine because it’s the time when hormones are actively changing causing us the unwanted blemishes and awkward preteen-young teenager look. Puberty aint always fun so might as well prepare for the worst right? Starting with your skin.



The first step to every skin care routine is to simply clean your face. It doesn’t make sense to expect a blemish-free face if you don’t know how to clean it, right? It’s important to teach tweens the habit of washing twice a day (morning and evening), or even just the evening. They should cleanse all the way to the hairline, the neck and behind the ears as well. Make sure to use mild facial wash and mild body wash so as not to expose their skin to harsh chemicals at an early age.


Extra cleansing

It’s optional, but others can use mild toners so they can further cleanse their faces and reach deeper into the pores. For athletic kids, teach them the habit of bringing wet wipes so they could clean their face from dirt and sweat immediately after practice. It’s better if you can find some wipes that contain salicylic acid to protect their face from bacteria which leads to acne.



After cleansing, moisturize. Skipping the moisturizer may cause the face to dry. It’s a must to hydrate your skin and a moisturizer will definitely help with that. Again, with preteens-young teenagers, always opt for mild products for their face.



No matter how old they are, most of them are still kids at heart. This means that activities under the sun will always be fun & exciting for them and there’s just not much you can do about it. Kids should have their fun too. So protect their skin with sunblock. They say that sun damage is cumulative — the more they are exposed when they are young, the more it shows when they age. For those who are already into makeup, there are tinted moisturizers and foundations with SPF in them already.

Having that said, the point is to teach your tweens the habit of taking care of their skin so there will be no regrets in the end. You know what they say, prevention is better than cure. This routine may be very basic but it’s the most essential part in every skin care routine of every person regardless of age. If your kids have already mastered their own skin care routine, then all they have to do is to continue it for the rest of their lives. They’ll thank you later.
