Did you know that 80% of teens are affected by acne, not just physically, emotionally the scars can almost be worse. Recently the British skin foundation published that 3 in 5 teens surveyed said that having acne was the biggest negative impact on their self confidence.
I remember vividly the feeling of having ‘problem skin’. Im not sure it was even classified as acne, but it certainly affected my self esteem hugely. That feeling of desperation, to just find products that actually work but don’t break the bank.
With a strapline of clear skin confidence, Green People have delveloped this three step skin care regime, aimed at teens as an extension from their other award winning skincare treatments.
My daughter, who is ten, was so impressed by the packaging; she was eager to try the products. She has used high street skin care products before, as I have always been keen to encourage good skin care from a young age. I have always been responsible enough to provide her with products that are as natural as possible, but she certainly hasn’t used anything thats packed with SO many gorgeous ingredients as OY!
Crammed with botanicals (and spot zapping ingredients) such as willow bark (fights bacteria, regulates sebum and is rich in natural salicin to calm sensitive skin), Green Tea (soothes sore, red blemishes, naturally anti-inflammatory and a strong antioxidant) Prebiotics (Supports the skins good bacteria and naturally fights the bad bacteria that encourages spots) and Tea Tree (Highly concentrated to control the bacteria that lead to spots and acne). These products certainly were exciting (and something that I might secretly borrow when a break out occurs!)
Keeping skincare as simple as possible is really important, certainly with young skin. The three step system includes;
Clear Skin Foaming Face Wash
Removing the days dirt and excess sebum build-up and removes impurities that encourage spots. Super easy to just, one pump covers the face well and rinsing with water, leaving your face fresh and clean. My daughter loved this was, especially as it was foaming as it felt a lot lighter on her face and non-cloggy.
Clear Skin Cleansing Moisturiser
That common myth YES you do still need to moisturise oily skin. Something that I wish I knew as a teen. I spent years under moisturising believing it would irradiate my oily skin. Balance is key. I now realise that a lot of high street products use ethyl alcohol (or ethanol) to reduce oiliness, especially in acne prone skin, something which I absolutely would not encourage my daughter to use. The moisturiser however is rich in purifying actives for sensitive and acne prone skin including willow bark, green tea and prebiotics. These support the healthy bacteria. Rosehip helps reduce scarring too. This moisturiser is gorgeous, so light, glides on so easily and you only require a very small amount as it goes a long way.
Clear Skin Purifying Serum
Serums are huge in the beauty industry currently, providing the extra nutrients that the skin requires. This lovely serum helps clear spots quickly and the anti-blemish properties help balance the skin.
So the verdict, I would absolutely buy this product, with a RRP of £30 I think its inexpensive for the quality of the ingredients it provides. It’s easy (and rather lovely) to use, it isn’t over perfumed -yet smells fresh and inviting. The packaging is young and certainly lends itself well to the teen market. Also, my daughter is hooked! She’s already asking about face masks (and cucumbers of course!)
