5 Langkah Penjagaan Kulit Untuk Remaja | Teen Skincare Routine
When I saw and read comments that is on glowwe videos, only then I realized that subscribers, followers and all glowwe fans are mostly of teenagers, where the age range is around 11, 12, 13, 14 years old.
And the question proposed by them are mostly same which is they want to know, you want to know, what is the skincare technique for teenagers that just experienced puberty. So in this video, I will share about it Skincare Routine for Teenagers glowwe girls, glowwe guys and all parents of glowwe girls glowwe guys, this time in this video I would like to share about skincare for teenagers because I found out that a lot viewers and comments and those who subscribed to glowwe are from the crowd of teenagers or parents to those who have teenage kids, their parents.
The main problem for teenagers is that when they faced or experienced puberty phase, they will start to experience hormonal changes in their body, very active hormon changes. These changes caused their oil gland to be active and can caused a lot of oil to be on the face, and if not cared properly, it will caused acne.
So you see, skincare for teenagers is very, very important. If you don’t care about your skin as early as possible, during that puberty phase, there is possibility to have acne or what we call it “teen acne”.
Actually adults also have acne. which is adult acne. What made condition worse is, or made things even more worse is, On the times of being a teen, it is not only hormonal issue, food diet for teens are also not good.
You eat snacks like Super Ring, right, Tam Tam, what else, ice cream, chocolate Malaysia ice cream, rich people ice cream ice cream “have have”, and so on. Why do I keep on mentioning ice cream? because I like ice cream, and eating pattern which is not balanced is added more with maybe, stress because of the exams, wait, on MCO there is no exam, staying up all night to play games, all of these could contribute to hormonal changes where we can see the effect on skin.
So, dear teenagers please listen to this Aunty, haha Aunty, I mean, sister, let’s upgrade a bit. Skincare is good for you to start early. But not too early to the point of using product that is meant for matured skin.
Because, teenagers skin are not the same. Teenagers skin are still supple, soft and still doesn’t experience any damaged that is experienced by adult skin. So, what should you do? I will share about it one by one.
So this is step number 1. The first step is to cleanse your face with product that is gentle, that is balanced of its pH level. For teenage skin which experience hormonal changes, like I mentioned earlier the oil gland is active, so excessive oil generation can make it easy for dust, dirt and bacteria to get caught on your skin if the excessive oil is not cleanse properly.
So what should we do is, the first step is to wash your face. Now, when mentioned on cleansers, for teenagers it is a bit of a hassle. Firstly, gentle. The keyword I mentioned is soft. Find cleansers with the property of soft.
It is very important for cleansers to be soft because, gentle cleansers do not contain too many ingredients. If there is too much ingredient for teenage skin, it is not suitable. So find cleansers that has only few ingredients, is better.
Secondly, find cleansers that have the pH level around 4.5 to 5.5. How do you know the pH? Check the product feedback, testimony, ingredients. There are a lot of ways we can check through the internet.
I believe teenage these days is very modern, everything is on the tip of your finger. Most cleansers out there will tell you that their pH is 7, good level of pH, natural pH, but actually the best type for our skin is best on the pH of 4.
5 to 5.5. So we want to find the cleanser that is around that level. Not those who are more, or less. Why not less than 4.5 and not more than 5.5? The pH level on our skin will cause bacterial growth if not set on the right pH.
So if it is too acidic or too alkali, bacteria will come. Because, all these bacteria, if the pH is not good for them, they will die. So the best pH for our skin but not good for bacteria is 4.5 to 5.
5. What I can recommend to you, to fellow teenagers is that cleansers from COSRX. I have used this cleanser before, it is called Good Morning Gel Cleanser. Okay. This type of cleanser is soft, very light even though it mentioned “good morning”, you can also use it at night.
So wash your face once in the morning, and evening for another one time, or night. What’s important is that you need to buy the correct cleanser, and also gentle. The second one is to use exfoliator. I have discussed a lot on exfoliator.
You can refer to any of my videos before, for teenagers you also need to use exfoliator. Use it 2 to 3 times a week. Exfoliator is not just a scrub, I have discussed this before. Exfoliator that is good for oily skin especially for teenagers that are going through hormonal changes going through puberty are those which contains salicylic acid.
So any exfoliator that contains salicylic acid is good because it really helps to deep clean into our pore and caused all the oil to be removed. But don’t do it every day alright. Exfoliate only every 3 days or 2 days, so only 2 to 3 times a week.
Exfoliate your skin, and make sure exfoliate has the property of gentle. That is why I do not encourage scrubbing. Scrubbing, when you have oily skin, and we trigger it more by rubbing, most probably, we will cause inflammation where when we are in that condition it can create dark spot or tiny black dots.
So from getting clean sparkly clean, suddenly there is dark spots. So we do not want that. So, exfoliate your skin, 2 to 3 times a week, with product that contains salicylic acid. The third step is to use moisturizer.
The best moisturizer for teenager skin, whereby the teenage skin is creating a lot of oil, we do not want to add more oil, is to find moisturizer that says “oil-free moisturizer”. Any brand will do, but like I mentioned, the lesser the ingredient the better.
Okay. Oil-free moisturizer. Moisturizer that does not contains oil. Although, additional ingredients that can also be found, which is good to maintain skin moisture on the right rate is “Hyaluronic Acid”, HA, I believe all of you have heard this before.
So you need to find moisturizer that contains HA so that our skin moisture will stay inside the skin. HA acts as a magnet. It defends and binds all the moisture so that our skin stay supple and also hydrated enough, have enough hydration and moisture.
So you need to find products that are oil-free, remember that, because you already have too much oil dear fellow girls and guys, and secondly it is good if if the moisturizer contains hyaluronic acid (HA).
At drugstore, I believe there are so many options because right now, hyaluronic acid is like a must have ingredient in moisturizer. so, you need to find oil-free moisturizer, usually it is available in gel texture.
So look for it, try it and read the labels. That is very important. The 4th step is to use sunscreen. It is very important to use it every day. Every day on mornings, not night. Like on the previous video I mentioned on night time there is no sunlight only moonlight, moonlight does not harm your skin When we mention about sunscreen, it has it’s own textures.
So my advice for teen, find sunscreen texture that is light. It means that when we try the product, before we buy it, it absorbs quickly, very light. It is not sticky, it does not make us feel like it is sticky, Then, try to find the ones which are oil-free also because your skin already have too much oil, and with SPF 30, which I highly recommend for teens.
Because I know a lot of teens are very active. They went to school cycling, riding motorbike, and walking, that’s really awesome walking to school? If the school is not far. If you’re staying in hostel, you still have to walk around right, so the exposure to sun will keep on coming to your skin.
So that is why you must use sunscreen. Sunscreen is one of the product that even if we apply it really early on our face, it is no problem. What’s important is that you need to find the ones which is suitable on your skin type.
Basically almost all sunscreen is good. It’s just that how we feel when the product is applied on our skin is the only difference. So you have to try it. My favourite sunscreen is from Biore. Really, that is it.
Watery Essence That is a brand from Japan and I have been using it for bottles already since since my skin is less youth until it’s now youth again. So for that reason I recommended that product but of course, any other product that is felt suitable and is filled with earlier mentioned characteristics can be obtained.
BONUS! I still have to discuss because when teens have oily skin, they have the tendency for acne. So, if you have acne which is caused by puberty phase, this is my advice. First, do not pick on your pimple.
If you squeeze it, it will become worst, do not pick on it. Secondly, try to make a habit, even though you have acne skin, apply all that skincare technique accurately. Most importantly, now that you have acne, you have to use spot treatment.
When mentioned on spot treatment for teens, it is good enough for you to use benzoyl peroxide, like the brand Oxy, Oxy5, it has it’s percentage start with Oxy5 and then Oxy10 or products that contains sulphur is also fine, no problem.
Or use spot treatment product that says AHA, BHA, that’s also good Find those products that is more gentle, because some teens asked on glowwe channel, on the comment section, “Can i use retinoid?” and they are teens.
So my advice is this, please Only use retinoid, well product that contains retinoid is good it can help to dry excessive oils, but it is more for adult. If you use benzoyl peroxide or product containing sulphur still doesn’t work, you can use the ones which contains retinoid.
With the rule that you start with a low percentage. If not, I don’t think it is necessary because your skin is still young so it’s healing efficiency is still very high. So, benzoyl peroxide function to kill bacteria that caused acne.
So, that is what you need to clear it up. Do not pick on it, don’t! Apply the spot treatment on top of the acne. If you pick on it i will pinch you Okay fellow teens, that is the advice from an ex teen, which needs to be followed.
Do not be too advanced because you are still a teenager because when you buy all the products you are using your parent’s money right, so, you don’t have to spend on product that is too expensive Just take products which serves it’s function well.
That’s enough. Drugstore product is already considered okay. Teens these days buys “have-have’ or expensive we are still studying so I believe that there is a lot of product for teens which offers really affordable price.
It’s just that you have to process finding it one-by-one , starting with step 1 and go ahead till step number 5 that I have already shared. So, hopefully with that simple advice and practical advice will get your skin to stay young, and when evolving to adult, your skin stays beautiful like me.
