tions for a Skincare Regimen? I'm 16
Soooo, I am 16 and I am very conscious about my skin's health.
However lately, I haven't really been looking at my skin's needs and as a teenager, I know I should take care of my skin while I don't have the wrinkles and much skin damage.
I have asian skin, oily, and can be prone to acne. I can say I have a few acne marks, and few wrinkles on my forehead. I usually don't have a problem with dark circles, but I want to take care fo my eyes better.
Currently I use
- neutrogena's liquid facial soap daily
- neutrogena's deep clean shine control wash
- estee lauder's makeup remover wash
- toner imported from Asia, where I add some clindamycin to prevent acne
- clean and clear's dual action moisturizer
- and occassionally neutrogena 2-in-1 fight and fade spot treatment gel
Can anyone recommend a better regimen? I was thinking of adding eye cream, serums, and a makeup base to lock it all in while I sleep. Please keep in mind that as much as I'd like, I can't go out to buy $50 creams and such as a teenage girl with a small budget
Thanks for your time<3
Hi, camille1125! It really sounds like you've got a good skincare regimen going already. I think it's great that you are already taking such great care of your skin. I wish that I had started taking care of mine when I was your age. The only thing that I would suggest that you add to your regimen is a sunscreen in the daytime. Whether you wear makeup or not, you need to wear a good SPF of at least 30 on your face every day. The sun is our #1 enemy when it comes to pre-mature aging and skin cancer and that's why wearing a sunscreen either underneath your makeup or just on your bare face is so important. A very good, inexpensive one that won't make your face oily and works great underneath makeup is Neutrogena's Ultra-Sheer Daily Sunblock SPF 70. It comes in different SPF strengths starting at SPF 45, I think. You don't have to go as high as SPF 70...the SPF 45 will be plenty, but I always say it never hurts to add extra protection. You can find it at any store that sells Neutrogena products, such as Walgreens, Target, WalMart, etc.
I hope this helps you.
