Care Tips for Teens

Our bodies change during puberty. And often, our skin as well as our moods act up. Body and skin care is especially important at this time. With these tips, you’ll be able to get to grips with blackheads, spots and body odour with ease.

Beauty basics for teens

Dirt and oil accumulate on the face throughout the day – it’s the ideal hotbed for blackheads and more. This care ritual will keep your complexion fresh and your skin clear of impurities.

Step 1: Thoroughly cleanse your face

Wash your face daily with an anti-bacterial wash gel such as Anti-Blemish Daily Scrub or Anti-Blemish 3in1 Cleanser from NIVEA. It clears excess sebum and dead skin cells from the skin and prevents the growth of bacteria.

For girls: it’s absolutely essential to thoroughly remove your make-up in the evenings.

The In-Shower Make-up Removers are ideal for this.

Step 2: Cleanse your skin with facial toner

It’s best to use facial toner for aftercare and to remove any remaining residues. It can be applied either all over the whole face or selectively on spots and blackheads.

Facial toner dissolves excess oil in the pores and thus prevents new spots and blackheads from forming.


Step 3: Care for the skin

Choose skincare that is right for your skin type. The cream should be very moisturising – that’s what young skin needs. Facial care protects your skin from external influences and leaves it looking radiant and fresh.

Step 4: Intensive care for the skin

Once a week: Gentle scrubs can be used to remove excess sebum, reduce shine on the skin, and remove dead skin cells.

A nurturing mask soothes irritated skin and provides it with moisture. Clear-up strips keep the T-zone clean and fine-pored.

Remove spots properly

No matter how tempting it is, you should never squeeze spots. The pressure can push bacteria further into the skin and cause inflammation.

But if there really is no other way, don’t squeeze with just your fingers – put a clean handkerchief between the skin and your fingertips and only apply gentle pressure. Disinfect the area of skin affected afterwards so as to reduce the risk of infection.

Better yet, go to a beauty salon regularly. You can get your skin cleaned professionally there, meaning that spots will appear much less frequently.


3, 2, 1, go: a fresh start to the day!

Are you out and about with your friends all day? To ensure that you look great at all times, you should pay a little attention to your body. A quick care routine will keep you looking laid-back and fit.

Things are heating up

During puberty, the sweat glands develop and you sweat more due to hormonal changes. If the sweat is decomposed by bacteria, an unpleasant smell will develop.

Important: wash every day. As you sweat at night, too, it’s best to have a quick shower in the morning. Use a deodorant to make sure you smell great throughout the day.

This will kill the bacteria responsible for the smell of sweat. It’s best to go for a deodorant that suits your own personal needs, such as Pure & Natural Action Spray from NIVEA, which is aluminium-free and offers 48-hour effective deodorant protection.


The 3-minute programme for skin and hair

Even when you’re short on time and have other things on your mind, your body needs looking after. To keep your skin looking fresh, you should rub in a light, moisturising body lotion every day. Too strenuous for you? Then rub in the cream while you’re in the shower, with In-Shower Body Lotion from NIVEA. Even when you’re washing your hair, you can save a little time in the shower by using shampoo and conditioner at the same time – for example with 2 in 1 Care Express Shampoo from NIVEA. Your hair will be super easy to style afterwards.
