How to tell if your tween needs a skin care routine.

“It’s really important that when you treat the skin you take care of this delicate balance,” she said.

How do you approach the subject of skin care with your tween?

If the beauty world turns your preteen on, a conversation about introducing a skin care routine might be easy. But if they’re not, here’s how Dr Yiasemides suggests approaching the subject.

“I use the analogy that it’s like brushing your teeth,” she said.

“You do it without thinking about it because you’re so used to doing it. And at first, skin care may seem like a chore, but once you’re in the business it’s faster and less messy than brushing your teeth. “

It’s also about involving them in the process, explained Dr Yiasemides. So, when shopping for their skin care products, allow them to help you choose what is going on their face.

“They have to like the products they use,” she added.

The ideal skincare routine for your tween.

Here’s the perfect morning and night skincare routine for your preteen, according to Dr. Yiasemides. And just so you can rest assured, it’s very simple and hassle-free.

“The first thing is that the skin care routine [has to be] pretty basic, “she said.” It doesn’t have to be complicated or include multiple steps. ”

“In the morning, I ask my tweens to do one thing and only one: get into the habit of putting on a cream that contains SPF,” said Dr. Yiasemides.

“There are many day creams with SPF and sunscreens. As long as it’s labeled SPF, apply it to the face in the morning. That’s all you need to do.”

“In the evening, I recommend a gentle cleanser to wash the dirt off the face. Nothing too harsh, nothing with too many astringents or chemicals, and just an oil-free moisturizer,” she said.

“That’s it. It makes all the difference. And the younger you start, the better,” she added.

Dr Yiasemides explained that the best sunscreens that offer both UVA and UVB coverage are those that contain a combination of physical and chemical ingredients.
