Good skin care will help keep your skin looking and feeling healthy. It can also help with blackheads and pimples. Here's an easy skin care routine that's perfect for kids between the ages of 7 – 12 years of age. It's just three steps.

Step 1: Wash your face.

Why it's important:

“Skin issues” aren’t caused by having a dirty face but more by sweat, dirt and oil. Keeping your skin clean is the first step in any healthy skin care routine. You should wash your face every morning and every night before you go to bed.

Many people struggle with oily or greasy skin, especially on their faces. Oily skin can be frustrating, especially when it causes other skin problems like acne and spots.

Facials, when done right, can work wonders in extracting dirt and bacteria from your pores and improving the overall look and feel of your skin. However, there may be downsides to this spa treatment that may leave your skin looking less than presentable. Consult your skincare professional before undergoing any treatment to ensure that it fits your skin type and check out the credentials of the esthetician who will be performing the procedure. Most side effects do not require treatment, but may need medical attention for more severe reactions.

If you take a look at the labels on beauty products, you may notice the words Mentha piperita or Mentha spicata in the ingredient listing.

Citrus fruits can have a myriad of benefits on your skin. Citrus fruits contain a high concentration of antioxidants (including vitamin C and vitamin E) and using citrus fruits topically can freshen and moisturize your skin (even oily skin needs moisturization). Citrus fruits also have an added benefit in that they folklorically lighten skin color and reduce freckles, discoloration and scars. Citrus fruits contain alpha-hydroxyl and enzymes which may act as a natural exfoliating ingredient and the juices are astringent so they are helpful in caring for oily skin.
