Depression. Anxiety. Self- consciousness. These are a few of the thing many teenagers go through as a result of acne. We as cosmetologist, understand our clients and we want to help them as much as we can. My goal is to make clients feel beautiful. Especially teens who are the ones that go through drastic changes and are made to believe that they need to look like celebrities; perfect glowing skin and great body shapes, is what most social media tells teens they should look like. But the truth is teenagers have the most hormones, and most of them get severe acne, which can often make them very self-conscious about themselves. Therefore, I want to create skin care products that make people’s acne heal fast and that is one hundred percent natural.
Taking in mind that clearing acne takes more than one product, and that there is many people who don’t have enough time, I created products which will be fast to apply and easy to use. So first we will start with the face exfoliator, it should always be natural, gentle, ready for sensitive skin. So, this will consist of honey and brown sugar and lime. The source, Gretchen Herber (2018). Remedies for the Face With Sugar, Honey and Lime Juice. Retrieved Feburary 26, 2019, 2018, from: https://www.livestrong.com/article/1000752-remedies-face-sugar-honey-lime-juice/., Talks abut all the good benefits these ingredients give to our skin. “Each of these natural ingredients offers benefits to your skin.” All our honey should be fresh and imported from organic markets.
Next, we will proceed with a cleanser that moisturizes and cleanses the face all at the same time. This is because people need something that hydrates the skin, severe acne tends to leave dryer areas. My cleanser will include all-natural ingredients: Rosewater, Fenugreek, hamamelis, distilled water, and geranium oil, pine tree oil and lemon. The article below states the many different ways that a face ceanser should be made. Daria Patrunjel (2016). 8 ways to make your own facial cleanser . Retrieved Feburary 26, 2019, 2016, from: https://helloglow.co/make-your-own-facial-cleanser/ . “Take into consideration age, skin type, the season, and the amount of makeup used, you might just get the perfect, custom cleanser solution for your skin.” All these ingredients will help heal, cleanse and moisturize the face.
Even after using my products, Teenagers have to take their own steps in order to keep up with a healthy skin. Applying their own moisturizer after exfoliating their face is the main key. The steps for the products are to apply exfoliator to face and rub softly on skin with a little of water not enough for the product to dilute. Once your face is exfoliated you should cleanse face with warm water. We now moisturize the face with a hydrating lotion, this can be any skin moisturizer, After three minutes when face is fully dry from the moisturizer we now go or the cleanser the face should be damped and we should apply the cleanser and rub in small circles all around the face. Once face is cleaned we remove exess product with warm water and once again apply moisturizer, this time tapping around eye area with finger tips, back and forth. The article explains how this method helps our face in many ways. Eve wagstaff (2018). Why ‘patting’ is the Japanese skincare technique you need to know. Retrieved Feburary 26, 2019, 2018, from: https://www.stylist.co.uk/beauty/patting-japanese-skincare-trend-how-to-apply-face-moisturiser-serum-oil/199733. “This method stimulates blood flow to aid cell rejuvenation, helps with lymphatic drainage and most importantly, muscle tone to firm.” This will help circulation and is a mini face massage. All this skin care should take at most ten minutes in total.
Throughout the years as a cosmetologist I have gathered information and I know clients can get allergies with different products. And many people have really sensitive skin, so I try to use natural products. My products will help mostly teenagers who have acne. The goal is to stop severe self-consciousness and to help teens not feel like they should look like famous people, but teach them how they should have a clear natural acne free face.
