Our busy teenagers become more independent from year to year, and teaching them how to manage the health of their skin on their own becomes very important during these years. With hormonal changes, diet variations and sports activities, your teen with keratosis pilaris may find that their KP will flare up or make them self-conscious about their skin.

So how do you teach teens the basics of good skin care at this age? Show them the steps help them establish a solid skin care routine, and remind them often. Show them the best products and tools to use and how to use them effectively to look and feel their best.

The teenage years are often filled with increasing body awareness, self-reflection and self-doubt. By enabling our teens to care for their sensitive skin, we can help them become more confident in their appearance during these self-conscious years. The more our teenagers can do for themselves, and the more they know about taking good care of their sensitive skin, the more independent and confident they feel about their skin and bodies.

Keep Her Skin Clear | Cetaphil Cleansing Cloths

Keep Her Skin Clear | Cetaphil Cleansing Cloths

As a mother of three active children, baths are a *priority* in our home… A non-negotiable part of our nighttime routine.

My daughter is currently a preteen and she’s learning the benefits of keeping her skin clean and clear. Clear skin = happy daughter = relaxed mama. However, along with tween hormones comes skin breakouts and inevitably, flareups of her keratosis pilaris.

While her face and cheeks rarely show signs of KP, her upper arms consistently do. And managing her dry skin is a *constant* battle.

…please tell me I’m not the only one fighting this battle. grrrCetaphil Cleansing Cloths |

While searching for makeup remover wipes, we recently stumbled upon these super gentle cleansing cloths from Cetaphil. And she’s been a super happy tween ever since.

These lightweight Cetaphil wipes are ideal for lightly cleansing her delicate young skin and keeping it moisturized, not to mention keeping preteen breakouts at bay. They’re soap-free, very mild on her skin and eeeeeeasy… which is ideal for any busy tween girl.

According to my daughter, “the faster I can get this makeup off, the better.” LOL my sweet girl, me too.

>> Try out Cetaphil Cleansing Cloths and let me know what you think.


I’d love to know… What is your daughter’s go-to product for removing her makeup? Wipes, cleansers or liquid?
