While they’re growing, your teens and tweens needed to be taught on how to take care of their skin.
When I was a teenager (a very very very long time ago!), there was no skincare range specifically for teenage skin. So I just used my Mum’s Nutrimetics and Avon.
Now I’m not knocking it – but it was way too harsh for the young skin. It is so good to see now that there is skincare for acne that is still gentle – and even a range of skincare that was designed by a teenager (I think her Mum is a chemist…. that might be cheating – but good on her!) Here are our absolute favourites!
If you have one to add that your teenager loves, please drop us a line so we can include it here too!
If your teenager has dry skin from being outdoors or loads of sports, than this is the gentle and natural cleanser he or she will need! This cleanser is made with coconut milk, coconut oil, coconut water and vanilla bean (so it smells absolutely amazing!) – and is nourishing and gentle on young skin.

The Juniper Skincare Range is Australian made (yay) and uses first grade certified organic and natural ingredients and is free from all chemicals and synthetic preservatives.
