Understanding Skin Changes in Tween Years

What Pre-Teens’ Skin Needs

As pre-teens transition towards their teenage years, their skin starts experiencing significant changes, like increased oiliness and sensitivity. Skincare at this age is about more than just washing your face– it's about finding a balance between gentle and effective care.
A routine including a mild cleanser to remove dirt and excess oil, and lightweight, non-comedogenic moisturisers to maintain hydration, is ideal. Our range strikes the perfect balance with natural, gentle, yet effective products, ensuring young skin is treated with the care it needs.

Four Simple Steps: Simple Skincare Routine for Pre-Teens & Tweens (9-12 year olds)

Our skincare routine for pre-teens is designed with simplicity and care to guide growing youth through their skincare journey. The routine kicks off with morning hydration and defense, essential for maintaining young skin throughout daily activities. Come evening, it's time for a gentle cleanse to nourish and rejuvenate the skin during sleep. This regimen expertly tackles early signs of oiliness and breakouts, forming the bedrock of a solid pre-teen skin care routine. For those fortunate to have minimal skin issues, our carefully formulated day and night creams deliver just the right care, offering protection during the day and aiding in night-time restoration. If dry areas are a concern, our cleanser provides a mild yet effective solution. When it's time to address the onset of hormonal changes, our full skincare routine for tweens presents an ideal, sensitive solution, answering the question of what is a good skin care routine for tweens with a definitive, nurturing approach.
