Blemish-free: 10 best skincare products

Ease your teens into a skincare regime with these winning products for young and sensitive faces

Young skin, like its occupiers, can be prone to sudden inflamed outbursts and periods of oversensitivity. Introducing a cosmetics regime that soothes and nurtures skin through these delicate years and establishes good skincare practice will set it in good stead for what the rest of life will throw at it.

The days of industrial strength astringent toners stinging across your T-zone are no more with many specialized ranges to suit all complexions and budgets.

Although on the more expensive end of the spectrum, the Elemis Freshskin face mask set is great for purifying and hydrating, and allows for a bit of guilt-free pampering.

However, for teens who prefer a fuss-free solution to bad skin, the Avene Cleanance Cleansing Water is a gentle but effective all-rounder.

Clean & Clear’s Blackhead Clearing 2-in-1 Wash and Mask is also worth considering, as it represents great value and can be used for quick fixes or as a more intense remedy for breakouts.
