How to start a great skin routine from a young age!

July 22, 2022 4 min read

Why it's better to start cleansing your face from a young age?

Taking good care of your skin is VERY IMPORTANT no matter what your age, particularly if you want to have fresh, glowing skin throughout your life. By the time we've reached our mid 20's, the signs of ageing will have started, and for some, fine lines and wrinkles can develop before we're 30. Some of this will be determined by genetics, and some on how well you take care of your skin and for how long you've been doing that. 

This is the reason why, as parents, grandparents and caregivers, we need to encourage our kids to take care of their skin when they're tweens (or at the lastest in their early teens).

What's the first thing we should encourage them to do? The power of cleansing is a HUGE help!

Why your tween needs to be cleansing their face even before puberty hits!

Every skincare routine ALWAYS starts with proper cleansing. This is because, our face accumulates dirt (tangible and intangible) from our environment. Without proper facial cleansing, the dirt and excess oils that sit on our child's face eventually builds up and turns into pimples, acne, breakouts, zits, and whatever the latest word for CARBUNCLE is!

If you want to know what causes pimples, watch the video below!


How to take care of your child's face?

Keeping their skin healthy and blemish-free needs consistency, time and knowing the best NATURAL products that work best for their skin. 

Encourage them to wash their face morning and night

Our skin produces sebum to help combat environmental damages caused by dirt and pollution. While it's very beneficial, when sebum stays on the face for a very long time and it mixes with excessive oil, it can develop blemishes. One spot is manageable, but a face full of acne is devastating to the confidence of a developing tween or teen. According to, over time, acne might also cause scarring. There's no denying that acne can contribute to emotional distress. Acne and acne scars on your face and other visible body locations can affect self-esteem and self-confidence, and they can even contribute to feelings of anxiety or depression. 

To prevent acne, help your tweens and teens to create a habit or routine, of washing their faces morning and night. Our Teen & Tween Starter Pack is the perfect bundle to get them started, and is so easy!
It consists of:

  1. 1 x Foaming Face Cleanser
  2. 1 x Face & Body Mist
  3. 1 x Face Moisturiser

Buy our tween and teen starter pack also includes a konjac sponge (green or black - the colour will be a surprise!)
