Teenagers’ skin is prone to various issues, such as acne, excess oil production, and uneven skin tone. One of the essential steps in a skincare routine that often gets overlooked is using a face toner. While most people believe that toners are only for those with oily skin, the truth is that a toner can benefit all skin types (from oily, dry to combination skin), especially teenagers.
A toner is a liquid that is applied to the face after cleansing and before moisturising. Its primary purposes are to restore the skin's pH balance and to remove excess sebum, which can be disrupted by harsh cleansers and other environmental factors. While many teenagers may think that they do not need toners, in this part of our Skincare 101 series, we’ll be exploring the question “Do teenagers need to use toners?”
Here are some reasons why a toner is essential for teenagers:
One of the most common skin concerns for teenagers is acne. Acne occurs when the hair follicles and pores become clogged with oil and dead skin cells, leading to pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads. A toner can help prevent acne by removing excess oil and dirt from the skin, which can clog pores and cause breakouts. It also helps to unclog pores by removing dead skin cells, allowing for better absorption of other acne-fighting products.
Teenagers may not think they need to moisturise their skin, but it's essential for maintaining healthy skin. A toner can help hydrate the skin and lock in moisture, leaving it feeling refreshed and nourished. It can also help prepare the skin for better absorption of other skincare products, such as serums and moisturisers.
As teenagers go through puberty, their skin may become rough, bumpy, or discolored. Toner can help improve skin texture and tone by removing dead skin cells and promoting cell turnover. This leads to smoother, brighter, and more even-toned skin.
Teenagers often experience excess sebum, which can lead to a shiny, greasy complexion. A toner can help control excess oil by removing any residual dirt or makeup and regulating the skin's sebum production. This can help prevent acne and other skin concerns associated with oily skin.
The environment can have a significant impact on the skin, especially for teenagers who spend a lot of time outdoors. Toners can contain antioxidants that protect the skin from environmental stressors, such as pollution. This can help prevent premature ageing and keep the skin looking youthful and healthy.
