Whether you’re a young teen going back to school or a slightly older teen starting college or even university, embarking on a new year of education can be both daunting and hugely exciting. Meeting new people and steering your life in a new direction is a massive life change and you’ll need every ounce of confidence you’ve got. We’ve sorted through and curated a list of our best products for younger skin to make sure you’re putting your best face forward on your first day:
This masque from Dermalogica is designed for teenagers with acne prone skin and works with a double action. Firstly, the masque contains bacteria-fighting ingredients which will help to eliminate the root cause of the breakout. It also contains ingredients which will soothe the skin, reduce redness and lessen any inflammation, giving your skin an improved overall appearance.
If you struggle with excess oil production and want a product which will help you to keep it under control, this fluid from Decleor is perfect for you. It moisturises the skin whilst purifying and re-balancing the skin and will allow your skin to breathe, thus calming the excessive oil production. All you need to know is: it will make you less shiny!
Using products to deal with the immediate issues is fine, but an overnight treatment is a must if you want to combat your skin issues on a deeper level. This overnight treatment from Dermalogica contains salicylic acid to reduce oil production, camphor oil to soothe the skin and a number of other ingredients which penetrate the skin and help to resolve the cause of breakouts.
Exfoliation can be a tricky issue when you have skin which is already over-sensitised – you want to slough away the excess oil and dead skin but don’t want to irritate the skin further and cause the body to produce more sebum as a reaction. This mask from Decleor gently exfoliates while soothing the skin and mopping up any excess oil, leaving your skin smooth and soothed.
If you wake up on the morning you start college with a pimple like Vesuvius on your face, you’ll need something powerful to deal with it. Keeping a tube of Dermalogica Emergency spot fix is a seriously wise idea as it can be dabbed directly onto pimples to reduce redness, kill bacteria and go deep within the pore to remedy the issue.
