From What Age Are You Allowed To Use Skincare Products?
Hello, I’m 15 years old. I want to ask what age can I use skincare products such as toner, serum, essence.
Hello. Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com.
Basically skin care is needed to keep skin healthy. At the age of adolescents like you, the problem that is often faced is oily skin and acne due to hormonal influences at puberty. In this condition, skin care that should be done is aimed at reducing oil on the face such as washing your face regularly in the morning and after the move, use a gel-based moisturizer to prevent excess oil, and also avoid using products that are piled up and are heavy, because of the risk to result in a buildup of blackheads which furthermore these blackheads can trigger acne. Also, don't forget to use sunscreen on your skin when exposed to the sun to prevent skin damage from UV rays from the sun.
As a person ages, of course, there will also be different skin problems, for example wrinkles on the skin. So at that age, skin care to maintain moisture and minimize the formation of wrinkles becomes the priority. At the age of 15 years, it seems that wrinkles are not yet a major problem.
Also keep in mind, use hypoallergenic products and not cause irritation to you. To determine the product that best suits your skin condition, you can further discuss with your dermatologist for a direct examination of your skin and determine the content of skin care that is suitable for you that does not cause irritation or allergies.
That's all the explanation from me, hopefully it helps and useful :)
