Moms, teaching your teens how to properly take care of their skin at an early age will lead not only to a life long lesson of skin care importance, it will lead to fewer breakouts, which we all know is important to your teen.
Teens, we're not talking about your mom's skin care products here. We're talking about Strawberry, Orange, Peppermint and Vanilla scented products that you'll look forward to using.
Listen up teens; if you want healthy skin, you have to take care of it properly. But it's hard to do that when most of the products on the market are geared towards your mom. We absolutely love this skin care lined aimed just for teens: TESS.
Created by a mother-teen daughter duo, TESS was created because there wasn't a safe, gentle skin care regime geared towards teens. Today, there is a TESS advisory panel that includes teens from all over the country giving their input on TESS Skin Care.
Along with selling individual products, there are two complete skin care kits available to coordinate with the skin type that you have. If you have oily skin with frequent breakouts, the "Skin With Attitude" kit is meant for you. If you have occasional breakouts, but not strictly oily skin, "Almost Normal Skin" kit is made for you.
Each kit includes 6 sweet smelling pieces as well as step-by-step directions so that you know exactly what to do at what time. It's made to take care of your oily skin, but in a gentle formula made for sensitive teen skin. This skin care line smells amazing, and it uses pure fruit and botanical extracts to clean and hydrate your skin.
TESS: Skin With Attitude Kit
Step One - Scrub It Off: This gentle daily cleansing exfoliator smells just like strawberries making it fun and totally teen-worthy. It has jojoba beads in it which are little scrubbers to leave your skin healthy and fresh.
Step Two - This Is Your Wake-Up Call: After cleansing and drying, take a cotton ball and apply this toner to your face. It smells like sweet oranges, and will help eliminate left over oil and dirt.
Step Three - Take No Prisoners: This little peppermint stick is to apply right on your acne. It will help dry out your pimples so you can get on with your day.
Step Four - Out and About: Even oily skin needs a moisturizer, and if you haven't learned about how necessary SPF is, take note; it's the best way to keep your fabulously young skin. (Oh, and feel free to remind your mom this easily forgotten beauty secret.) This lavender scented moisturizer has SPF 15.
Step Five - Perfect Pout: This strawberry scented lip gloss not only smells and tastes divine, it's also long lasting and hydrating. You're left with a pretty shine; all you need.
Before you turn in for the night, it's important to clean your face, especially if you wear any makeup. Repeat steps 1, 2 and 3 and then you're ready to move on to the night time moisturizer.
Step Six - Put On Your PJ's And...: This oil-free vanilla scented moisturizer is the final step in the "Skin With Attitude" kit. Apply after you cleanse and tone your skin.
I love the idea of having a skin care line strictly for teens. With many teens suffering from acne and oily skin, there is no better time than the present to teach quality skin care. Just be aware that acne isn't caused by poor hygiene. (Read our top five acne myths.) What this kit can do, is instill a good quality skin care routine that your teen will take with them into the future. Good skin care habits that start at an early age will always be helpful. And when it's such a trying time socially, why not give your teen the knowledge that you are trying to help them take care of their skin, improve their acne and make them feel better about themselves. Plus, these products really do smell amazing.
