Preteen Skincare

A friend recently asked me for some beginning skin care suggestions for her preteen. I've come up with some suggestions that I think are a great start to taking care of your skin, yet don't contain harsh anti-aging ingredients that a young girl doesn't need.

Cetaphil has long been a favorite line, and I think that's a great place to start. Their Daily Facial Cleanser (1) is unscented and won't strip your skin. The standout product in their line has to be the DermaControl Moisturizer SPF 30 (2). I've been using it for at least 6 months and love how it gives me sun protection without clogging my pores and leaving me greasy.

My friend mentioned that her daughter is self-conscious about under-eye puffiness (which I have never noticed on her!) so I looked for a product that could help with that while still being gentle. I think the Garnier Skin Renew Anti-Puff Eye Roller (3) would be a good product to try.

Although I think items 1-3 would make a great skin care set, if a girl is interested in using the same line for all her skin care, Simple Skincare has a great line. Their Moisturizing Facial Wash (4) is a great basic product. I'd then recommend trying their Protecting Light Moisturizer SPF 15 (5), although I'd really prefer a higher SPF. As a last step, I'd suggest their Revitalizing Eye Roll-On (6).

If you've got some great preteen skin care recommendations, please let us know in the comments!
