They’re GLOWING up so quickly: Skincare tips for your tween

If your kiddo is diving headfirst into the world of skincare, you're not alone.

Many tweens are jumping on the skincare bandwagon, exploring routines showcased by their fave beauty influencers on TikTok and YouTube. But the reality is some products flaunted by influencers might pack ingredients like retinol, more suited for mature skin. And trust us, that could lead to the dreaded acne and irritation – a tween’s skincare nightmare.

This doesn’t mean your tween can’t rock a stellar skincare routine. It’s all about picking products that truly vibe with their young, fabulous skin. Here are our trendy, tween-friendly skincare picks from the brands they love! 

Go-To Skincare Starter

Skincare Starter is a gently cleansing and balancing party for teen faces (which tend to experience an overproduction of oil ‘thanks’ to those cute, raging hormones.) Includes a simple two-step routine of super gentle, super effective full sized Go-To products, Properly Clean (a mega gentle cleansing mousse) and Very Lightweight Moisturiser (an oil-free gel-cream.)

RRP $79.00

All Kinds Daily Routine Sets

An easy, daily 2-step skincare routine gentle enough for teen and tween skin that keeps young skin fresh & balanced.

RRP $49.00

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops

OK if they must have something that’s “TikTok famous”, this is at least a safe choice. Glow Recipe’s appeal to tweens lies in its viral fruit-themed serums and creams, but many of the AHA and BHA formulas can be too exfoliating on young skin. Opting for their popular Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops is a smarter move. This bestseller not only embraces the brand’s fruity charm but also aids in calming redness, reducing inflammation, and restoring the skin barrier—ideal for skin prone to spots. 

RRP $56.00
