The teenage years can present some unique challenges for your teen’s skin. With so many changes going on, skincare is never more important for teens. It can be difficult to know what exactly your teen needs out of their acne-prone skincare regimen, but with this teen skincare routine using our best products, you can help your teen achieve glowing skin and better confidence.
Morning Skincare Routine for Teenagers
In the morning, your teen can begin by cleansing with a gentle, foaming cleanser. If your teen has acne-prone skin, consider a cleanser that contains salicylic acid a common acne-clearing ingredient. Pat dry and apply any treatments like niacinamide, which can help control visible oil production. Next, tone skin with a nourishing toner. Then, apply an unscented moisturizer all over the face and neck. The most important part of a morning skincare routine is applying sunscreen that has at least SPF 30. This can help prevent the appearance of hyperpigmentation and acne scarring, as well as photodamage if your teen uses any acne treatments. Just make sure your teen’s sunscreen is non-comedogenic and won’t cause breakouts.
Nighttime Skincare Routine for Teenagers
If your teen wears makeup, it’s extremely important to begin by removing it thoroughly with a makeup remover or micellar water. Make sure to avoid makeup removing wipes since they can be harsh on the skin. Then, wash with a gentle, foaming cleanser and apply any acne treatments according to instructions. Serums containing hyaluronic acid can be an effective way to further lock in moisture for acne-prone skin. Finally, finish with a thicker nighttime moisturizer to help hydrate the skin while sleeping.

Frequently Asked Questions
When do teens need to start a skincare routine?
This can be different for each teen, but we often recommend kids start practicing basic skincare habits as early as 10 years old. This can help them establish good hygiene that can better equip them to deal with the changes to their skin later on. If your teen doesn’t already have a skincare routine, however, it’s not too late to begin one.
How many times a day should a teenager practice their skincare routine?
For most teens, a daytime and nighttime regimen is enough to help them maintain good levels of hydration. Although many teens tend to have oily skin, washing it too often can strip it of natural moisture and worsen oil production.
