Taking care of the skin early prepares one in dealing with possible skin issues in the future. A pre-teen, skincare routine as per your skin type helps you to take care of acne problems, brown spots, wrinkles, formation of enlarged pores and more and hence it is best to invest in early skincare.
Teenagers are least conscious about any skincare regimen. They are also quite reckless about sun exposure and skin cleansing. As hormones play havoc with the young bodies, the skin oscillates between dry and oily, it is during teenage years that they tend to experience skin issues like pimples, acne, blackheads and the resultant scars and blemishes. Setting up a basic skincare routine with simple steps is one way to start dealing with pre-teen and tween skin.
Acne and sudden breakouts are commonplace at this age. It is advisable to see a dermatologist or a skin expert who can help professionally.
