Tween Care

From a dermatologist’s perspective, the tween years are important. Tween, or pre-adolescent skin, is in huge transition.

What is happening to a tween's skin as they go from childhood to their teen years?

Tween skin is moving from the fine and delicate skin of childhood into the hormonally induced changes of puberty. Oil glands are enlarging and revving up, hair is becoming courser and the distribution of it is showing up in new places. It’s an exciting time.

As a parent of two grown adult kids, I also know that tweens can be, well - complex.

What is the best skin care for tween complexions?

Skin care for tweens needs to fit their skin type. That means knowing how oily or acne prone a complexion is becoming. Tween skin is often more sensitive than teen skin since it still has some of the delicate structural aspects of a child’s skin. This makes acne treatment tricky since many acne medicines are designed for oily and tough adolescent complexions and can irritate and dry out a tween complexion.

What inherent skin issues exist that will start becoming more important as a child moving into adolescence develops more concern over appearance. Dry skin and keratosis pilaris start to get noticed.

Sun protection is important too. As children start to develop more independence, they become more responsible for adhering to good sun protection practices.

I have listed here the products that are the most popular with tweens in my dermatology practice. It’s an exciting time of life. It’s also been really rewarding for me to work with tweens to help them begin good skin care habits that will last their lifetime.
