4 Skincare Tips I Wish All Mums Knew, So Their Kids Don’t Have to Struggle with Textured Skin and Acne

Sunflower

About the Author

With a degree in Biomedical Science and Diploma in Organic Skincare Formulation, I’ve spent the last 8 years intensively researching and perfecting my skincare formulas. Why? Because I struggled with acne for 14 long years, and I know first hand how depressing it can be, especially for our little ones.

1. Choosing the Right Cleanser is Crucial


Many kids don’t have the patience (or let’s be honest, the discipline!) to follow a multi-step skincare routine. That’s why the cleanser is the most important product. It needs to both cleanse and nourish in one easy step.

The key is finding a formula that leaves skin feeling smooth, soft and balanced – not tight and dry. Trust me, I’ve been there. Using the wrong cleanser made my skin severely dehydrated, resulting in shiny and oily skin by lunchtime. The right balance of ingredients can make all the difference, resulting in balanced glowing skin.

2. Look for a Cleanser That Actually Balances Skin


Speaking of balance, that’s the holy grail when it comes to caring for young, reactive skin. If your child’s skin starts producing excess oil just a few hours after cleansing, it’s a tell-tale sign the formula isn’t quite right.

For years, my skin shined like a well-oiled pan by midday, a tell-tale sign that my cleanser was unbalancing my skin rather than nurturing it. This was something I didn’t know until I started formulating my own cleansers did I truly understand the delicate science of balancing skin. Every single ingredient needs to work in harmony to cleanse well yet leave skin with a healthy glow and not the oily glow.

3. Address Little Bumps Early On


When we see those tiny flesh-coloured bumps starting to appear on our pre-adolescent tweens, it’s time to take action. These tiny clogs are the first signs of trouble, and if left unchecked, they can quickly escalate into full-blown pimples and acne.

That’s why it’s so important to educate our kids on proper skincare and get them using the right cleanser from an early age. Nipping those little bumps in the bud can prevent a whole host of skin issues down the line.

4. Beware of “Acne-Fighting” Cleansers


When you see those pesky little bumps, textured skin or pimples, it’s tempting to reach for the heavy-duty “acne-fighting” products. But more often than not, these are way too harsh for young, delicate complexions.

The truth is, our kids rarely have acne across their whole face. Spot treatments with active ingredients like salicylic acid are a much better option than subjecting their entire face to these drying formulas. A gentle, nourishing cleanser is what they really need.

As a mum and a skincare formulator, I’ve been where you are. I know how disheartening it can be to watch your little one struggle with problem skin. But with the right products and a few simple tweaks, you can help them achieve the smooth, healthy complexion they deserve. These simple steps could save your kids from the heartache of problematic skin.
