Best skincare routine for kids
by lily tickle |
Over the past few months, we have seen a rise in children as young as 7 becoming very interested in skincare. Many asked Santa to bring them a full routine of products packed full of chemical exfoliants & even retinol; ingredients that are waaay too strong for already baby soft skin! We know how fun skincare can be (obviously) & as a brand MADE for young skin we thought we would take the lead with this one… so here are the BEST skincare routines that are gentle (but fun) for kids!
Getting started with your skincare routine:
Skincare can be a minefield for anyone, of any age, knowing what to use, when to use it, how to use it – it can all become a littleee confusing sometimes so, we’ve broken it down for you.
Step 1: Cleanse daily at the start of your routine AM & PM, make sure to cleanse before applying any other skincare
Step 2: Serums – apply a few drops of your fav serum into your hand and press it into the skin, allowing it to fully sink into the skin before moving onto the next step! You can use serums AM & PM, just make sure they are gentle enough e.g. barrier builder & hydration hero and perfect to use 2x daily!
Step 3 – Moisturiser is super important (yes even if you have oily skin!) After your serums have fully sunken in apply your moisturiser of choice, AM & PM.
Step 4 – This step is for AM only… SPF every morning, yep, even when it’s cloudy outside, this is an amazing habit to get into to promote healthy skin.
Step 5 – GLOW, GLOW, GLOW…
Okay so you’ve nailed down the order of your routine but what products should kids be using?
Keep is simple, a gentle cleanser is key to the BEST skincare routine. Fun fact: a lot of cleansers aimed to tackle oil & breakouts actually contain a ingredient called SLS – this is the ingredient that makes a lot of foaming cleansers foam up! BUT it is really stripping to the skin and can damage it! That’s why we love our Jelly Cleanser, it is super gentle but SUPER hard working to tackle those breakouts.
For serums (our fav step) look for hydration & anything that will promote healthy, strong skin. Our top 2 picks for kids are Hydration Hero & Barrier Builder. You can even layer these two together AM & PM!
There are 3 Glow Hub moisturisers that we would recommend for young skin, our Nourish & Hydrate Gel Moisturiser, the super hydrating & fun texture makes this our number one pick for kids. Next up our Calm & Soothe Cool Whip Moisturiser is more of a traditional moisturiser texture, very gentle on young skin & perfect to cool down irritation! For oily, breakout prone skin we recommend our Purify & Brighten Moisturiser, our go to for someone who may avoid moisturiser in fear it might make them oilier.
