Finding the right teen skin care regimen can be overwhelming. Whether you are at the grocery store, mall or surfing online, you are bombarded with acne products that claim to clear up your skin! So, where do you start? Knowing your skin type and using a daily skin care regimen that includes your essential steps is the first important step to maintaining clear skin.

Our H&H Science Teen Line contains a complete line of solution oriented treatments exclusively for teens that are medical grade. They are stronger and more effective than anything you can find over-the-counter or online. Finding the right Acne Kit for you starts with knowing your skin type and level of sensitivity. From there, you will be able to find the perfect skin care regimen for you! 

Step 1 – What is Your Skin Type?

Before you can care for your skin and keep it healthy, you must know your type- your skin type, that is! 
How-To-Identify-Your-Skin-Type.jpgDry Skin – Dry Skin is usually dull, rough and scaly and it can be itchy. Normal Skin – Normal Skin is usually smooth and even in texture with no visible blemishes, red spots or flaky patchesCombination Skin – Combination Skin typically has an oily T-Zone (forehead, nose, and chin) and dry skin elsewhere. Pores are usually larger and blackheads and whiteheads are common.

Oily Skin – Oily Skin types usually have a shiny complexion that is acne-prone. Pores are larger and open and blackheads and whiteheads are common.

Step 2 – What is Your Level of Sensitivity?


Step 3 – Find the Perfect Acne Kit for You! 


What is Next? 

After finding the kit that is right for your skin type and level of sensitivity, it is important to know exactly what your daily skin care regimen should include, in order to fight acne or maintain clear skin. Cleansing daily is essential to removing dirt, oil and dead skin. After cleansing, a treatment, such as gentle exfoliants and acne treatments, should be used to treat pimples and all oily areas of the face. Following cleansing and treating your skin, hydration is next in line! Using an ultra-lightweight moisturizer will help maintain a healthy pH. As the last step in your regimen, it is important to protect your skin against UVA and UVB rays with a  lightweight, oil free sunscreen that has an SPF of 30 or higher.


What Could Be Causing Acne Breakouts

Acne can be hard to treat. You may have tried multiple acne treatments, yet your skin is still aggravated. While you are taking the right steps with trying to find the acne treatment that will help to clear your acne, there are quite a few things that contribute to acne breakouts that you may not even realize.

1. Skin Care Products That Clog Your Pores

There are certain ingredients in your skin care products that are known for clogging pores and causing breakouts. While it may be difficult to remember and look for the certain ingredients that are “pore cloggers,” looking for products that are “non-comedogenic” will make it a lot easier. “Non-comedogenic” means that it does not clog pores. This will ensure that the products you are using are not making your acne worse.

2. Sleeping With Your Makeup On

Leaving your makeup on overnight will hinder your skin’s renewal and clog your pores. Bacteria will then build up and cause inflammation, which can lead to acne. It is very important to make sure you are washing your face before bed, no matter how tired you may be! Your skin will thank you.

3. Your Pillowcase

Speaking of nighttime, it’s important to think about where your face is laying for the 7-8 hours you sleep at night. Your pillow can accumulate bacteria, dust and dead skin cells. It is important to wash your pillowcase as often as possible!

4. The Sun

While being in the sun increases your risk for developing skin cancer, it can also cause oil glands to become overactive, which can then lead to breakouts. Choosing an oil-free, non-comedogenic sunscreen will help protect your skin without causing a break out. 

5. An Unhealthy Diet

What you eat changes the consistency of the oil on your skin, making it more likely to clog pores. Some food also tips your skin’s natural balance in a way that flares acne. Sticking to a healthy, low-fat, low-sugar diet will lessen flare-ups and make it easier to control with acne treatments.

6. Your Beauty Tools

Everything that comes in contact with your skin should be cleaned often to keep bacteria levels low. This includes any skin care devices, makeup brushes and even your phone screen. If you’re not cleaning your makeup brushes, try out our NEW H&H Science Heart Shaped Brush Cleaner. With this proper cleaning, your brushes are guaranteed to last longer than ever before, while preventing bacteria buildup. 

Step 1: Wet your brush’s bristles under a running faucet with lukewarm water

Step 2: Use a gentle soap and lather on your makeup brush 

Step 3: Gently scrub makeup brush on Heart Shaped Brush Cleaner

Step 4: Rinse the brush by scrubbing on the Heart Shaped Brush Cleaner under running water

Step 5: Squeeze excess water from brush, reshape and lay flat on a clean surface to dry

Why Your Skin Is Worse In The Winter

While most of us try our hardest to bundle up and protect ourselves from the cold winter air, we must also remember that the wintertime can have damaging effects on our skin and health. During the winter months, our skin is drained of its moisture, which is vital to our skin’s health. The summer glow we worked so hard to get quickly turns into a dull appearance, while the lack of hydration can also cause dryer skin and more wrinkles.

So, why might your skin be worse in the winter than it was in the summer? And what can you do to help fix these issue?

1. You are using the same cleanser on your skin that you used during the summer

While it is necessary to switch from a regular moisturizer in the summer to one that is ultra-hydrating in the winter, the same goes for your cleanser. Winter is a good time to switch to a gentle cleanser that won’t strip away your skin’s moisture. Finding a cleanser that hydrates while it cleanses is the best option for your daily regimen in the winter season.

2. You are taking long, hot showers

While taking a long, hot shower after being out in the frigid air sounds appealing, it is better to keep your showers shorter in the winter. The water does not moisturize your skin. It actually strips your skin of its natural oils. 

3. You are not moisturizing enough

Hydrating your skin often and regularly during the winter months will help fight against aging. It is especially important to apply right when you first come out of the shower or bath. Moisturizer spreads easily on damp skin and it will help replenish the moisture lost during your shower.

4. You are not applying sunscreen

You have heard numerous times that it is important to wear your sunscreen year-round…but are you? Even when it is a blizzard outside, you still run the risk of sun damage on your skin. UV rays are still present on the coldest and cloudiest days of the year. Finding a sunscreen that protects and moisturizes your skin makes the perfect combination for the dry, winter months. 

Try: H&H Science Tinted Brightening BB Cream SPF 50+


5. You are not exfoliating

The only way to get rid of dead cells is to make sure you are providing your skin with a deep cleanse. Dead skin cells can build up on the skin’s surface, providing a dull appearance. Exfoliating 2-3 times a week will help remove dry, dead skin cells, excess oils and residue to reveal healthier and younger looking skin.
