Let’s talk teen skin! Our bodies navigate *many* seasons of change. And one season we all have weathered is puberty. As we transition from adolescence to adulthood, hormones like estrogen, testosterone and progesterone create shifts that directly impact our skin. During this time, our sebaceous glands and hair follicles are *extra* stimulated, creating more oil on the surface of the skin, which can lead to clogged pores and acne. The vicious cycle begins when the conventional skincare products we grab for (oftentimes too harsh) leaves skin stripped of its natural oils and moisture barrier. What happens next? The skin produces more oil to compensate…and the acne pattern continues.
Fear not, beauty. We’re sharing a gentle yet effective toolkit to reach for during those teenage days… without dulling your shine.
Balanced skin ahead…
