Teenage skin care
We see many teenagers at our clinic, the most common skin concern being acne. Due to hormonal changes, teenage skin starts to produce more sebum, an oil produced by our skin. Overproduction of sebum can congest the skin and result in the formation of spots.
A common misconception is that the way to combat these spots it to ?dry them out?, however, a lack of hydration can damage the skin and leave it prone to more spots. We believe, therefore, that it is most important to hydrate the skin.
We recommend to teens that attend our clinic to adopt a natural and gentle skin care routine; to ensure that any make-up worn is properly removed at night; and most of all to never squeeze their spots.
We are very proud of the fact that our products at the Claudia Louch Natural Skin Clinic are 100% plant-based and natural, as well as being steroid and preservative-free. We would highly recommend natural, plant-based products for a teenage skin care routine, as these are very gentle on young skin and as they do not contain preservatives, have no damaging effects long-term.
From the Claudia Louch Natural Skin Clinic skin care range we would recommend the following routine:
1. Claudia Louch Natural Skin Clinic Botanical Cleansing Lotion: this cleanser is easy to use, and cleans oily skin without drying it out.
2. Claudia Louch Natural Skin Clinic Botanical Firming Toner: the toner is essential to prime the skin to allow the moisturiser to be drawn into the skin.
3. Claudia Louch Natural Skin Clinic Hydrating Mango Face Cream: this refreshing moisturiser hydrates the skin without leaving it feeling greasy.
In cases of severe acne, we would advise teens to seek the advice of a skin specialist at the Claudia Louch Natural Skin Clinic to analyse their skin, Here we can recommend a more specific and bespoke skincare routine and treat the congestion appropriately, while investigating and treating possible underlying causes.
