SKINCARE 101 FOR TWEENS & TEENS

About: : When is the perfect time to start a skincare routine? Most experts recommend creating a very basic tween skincare routine during the preteen years, between the ages of 10-13 years old. This builds a good skincare habit and ensures by the time significant issues come along, there is an excellent healthy base to work from.

The key to getting a skincare routine going with your tween is to make it super easy. You do not want to make it complicated, but you also want to make it fun so that they will do it regularly. Teens will learn the basics of a good skincare routine, make their own DIY mask to take home, and have lots of fun in this class with a licensed professional.
