Ask Jo Chidley: what’s the best age to start using skincare?
At what age should you start using skin products? My 12-year-old daughter has been nagging to let her try some.
Effective, twice-a-day, cleansing is the most important step in your teens. My recommendation is using a Konjac sponge with a gentle natural Abyssinian oil based cleanser which balances the production of sebum & excess oils helping to clear pores & remove bacteria.
The only other routine essential is a natural SPF. We should all be using one of these everyday and the earlier we all start the habit the better!
One final tip is the occasional face mask containing clay as it will help to clear skin and absorb excess oils.
