10 Of The Best Beauty Products For Teens
The beauty industry is massive. It’s a blessing and a curse. As a teen who’s only starting their journey into the world of beauty, trying to find the best beauty products for teens is very confusing. Where do you even start with skin care for teens? Makeup for teens?
For example, if you need a mattifying foundation that provides sheer-to-medium coverage and UV protection, you’re pretty much guaranteed to find least three. But on the other hand, if you’re looking to go away for a few days and you need to pack only the essentials, how in the world are you meant to pick between your foundation, BB Cream, CC Cream and tinted moisturiser?
Well, luckily your faux big sis beautyheaven is here to help shed some light on the situation. Here’s our roundup of the best beauty products for teens.

TEEN BEAUTY ESSENTIAL #1: A REALLY GOOD CLEANSER
Your hormones are out of control and this can really wreak havoc on your skin, which is why it is absolutely essential that you not only own a cleanser that’ll rid your skin of impurities and dirt, and keep those pimples at bay, but that you actually use it twice a day. No arguments.
TEEN BEAUTY ESSENTIAL #2: AN ACNE SOLUTION
For some, pimples aren’t just rare occurrences, they’re persistent and painful. Which is why you may need something pretty powerful to combat acne. And sometimes that actually needs to be done from the inside to help reduce the effect your hormones have on your skin.
TEEN BEAUTY ESSENTIAL #3: AN EFFECTIVE SPOT CONCEALER
While you can do your darndest to minimise the chance of outbreaks, you still need to be prepared for that pimple that pops up at the worst possible time. Use a concealer that offers good coverage to cover up the blemish and also contains ingredients that’ll treat and clear your spot.
TEEN BEAUTY ESSENTIAL #4: A COMPLEXION-ENHANCING BB CREAM
Your skin is young and fresh, so if you’re looking for a product that provides coverage, you’ll want to use something that’s lightweight and cares for your skin. BB Creams tick all the boxes, leaving your skin looking fresh and radiant without clogging your pores.
TEEN BEAUTY ESSENTIAL #5: A NATURAL MASCARA
There’ll be plenty of time for you to experiment with lash lengthening, volumising and curling mascaras. For now, it’s best to keep things simple, so a clear mascara will work wonders to enhance and define your lashes without looking like you’re wearing too much makeup.
TEEN BEAUTY ESSENTIAL #6: A TOUCH OF GLOSS
When it comes to your lips, you’ll want them to feel soft and nourished while looking a little fancy, too. Opt for a lip gloss that adds a hint of colour and shine to your lips and contains ingredients like jojoba or shea to care for your lips.
TEEN BEAUTY ESSENTIAL #7: A GREASY HAIR SOLUTION
Some mornings a sleep in seems like a much better idea than washing your hair. So instead of stressing over greasy locks, get creative with how you style your hair and use a giant bun. Either comb back your hair for a tight and sleek look, or spray in some dry shampoo and ruffle your hair for a more tactfully dishevelled up-‘do.
TEEN BEAUTY ESSENTIAL #8: AN ODOUR AND SWEAT CONTROLLING DEDORANT
Do you find you’re sweating more than you used to? That’s the beauty of puberty. More sweat and sweat that smells too. Make sure you use an anti-perspirant deodorant that also controls odour. You’ll feel much fresher and much more confident.
TEEN BEAUTY ESSENTIAL #9: A PERFUMED BODY SPRAY
Deodorant may keep your sweat at bay, but a perfumed body spray will do the trick to leave you smelling delightfully fresh and feminine. Choose a body spray that features scents that you like and spray away!
TEEN BEAUTY ESSENTIAL #10: A SKIN-SOFTENING RAZOR
Another ‘perk’ of puberty is the increase of hair on your body. So if you’re self-conscious of the hair on your legs or under your arms, then you’ll want to invest in a razor. But not just any razor, look for one that features a strip or bar that’ll add moisture back into your legs or underarms as you shave.
