As your daughter hits puberty and become a teenager, facial skin care becomes a very important factor for them and it can affect their self-esteem.
Tweens (12) and young teens (13-15) today, are using makeup more and more. As a mom it is important to reiterate less is more and classy is not trashy. Obviously, every parent has their own rules and some may not allow their teenage daughters to wear makeup while others do. We did not allow ours to wear it until she was 14–and evern then, it was VERY light and no mascara until she was 16! If you allow your daughter to wear make up, it is important to teach them HOW to wear it, and take care of their skin.
Teenager girls love to share things–especially clothes and makeup. Make sure they learn not to share makeup and to always use clean applicators when applying it. Keep with the rule of no double dipping as that will contaminate the product and could cause eye infections.
Teenage skin can change dramatically as they head deeper and deeper into puberty. Their skin becomes oilier and pimples start appearing. Although it’s normal for teens to go through this phase, it’s embarrassing to many and it lowers their self-esteem and causes self-consciousness.
Facial skin care tips to prevent pimples and keep your teenage daughter’s skin looking great
It’s never a good idea to pop pimples because it can cause deeper problems like infection and scarring. Popping pimples will aggravate the skin more and will be more noticeable than if you left it alone.
Wash your face at least twice a day with a facial cleanser and warm water. Use circular motions with your fingertips and don’t apply a lot of pressure. Avoid scrubbing the face as it’ll damage and irritate the skin.
Always remove makeup before going to bed.
Avoid touching your face with your hands. Your nails can harbor a lot of germs and if you’re picking your face, you can spread bacteria.
Keep your hair clean and away from your face. Oils and dirt in your hair can clog your skin.
Protect your face from the sun. Use a moisturizer that also contains SPF. For some teens, the sun can make the acne worse.
Watch what you eat and drink. Junk foods or certain foods and soda can trigger pimple outbreaks. Drink more water as it flushes out the bad stuff in your body.
If your teenager is suffering from bad acne, it’s best to seek advice from a dermatologist.

I don’t allow my daughter to wear make up as other teen age girls. Infact she is also very conscious about her skin and avoids the too much use of makeup. She always prefer to use homemade cleanser just like butter milk and she use rose water for face wash it leaves her skin soft and fresh.

I am extremely inspired with your writing skills and also with the format to your blog. Is this a paid topic or did you customize it yourself? Anyway keep up the excellent high quality writing, it’s rare to peer a great blog like this one today..
Wow, I went through the same thing recently when my tween daughters developed acne. Thankfully I was able to help solve that problem. Like you said – the tween years are some of the toughest and most self-conscious years of a child’s life. It was a must to teach my girls all these tips.
So are your daughters now comfortable with their new skincare routine? I’m still working getting mine used to it, but its is getting easier as they see the benefits of using these tips – which is great! :)
