Moms have the toughest job. We are tasked with teaching our kids so many things. It can quickly become overwhelming if you think about the enormity of it all, so it is important to simplify wherever you can.
The basic routines of life are some of the most important things we can teach our children. How to take care of themselves in the day to day, and how to live a healthy lifestyle. Particularly for the tween and teen years, teaching daughters a good SIMPLE skin care routine that they’ll stick with is something you don’t want to miss.

Hormones are raging during puberty years, making this a crucial time to develop healthy hygiene habits. I’ve always had sensitive and problem skin, and remember the constant battle against blackheads and breakouts during my teen years. I wish I could say I had a good skincare routine back then, but I’ve learned over the years and there are skin care products like Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes available now that make a healthy skin care routine much simpler.
My fifth grade daughter has sensitive skin like me, and is already beginning to show some of the outward symptoms of puberty like facial blemishes and minor breakouts. Dry skin is something else we’ve had to tackle. I’ve shared some of my favorite skincare products with her and have helped her to SIMPLE-fy her own skin care routine – one that works with her ever-increasing busy schedule.
A simple skin care routine for tween and teen girls.
Cleansing, moisturizing, makeup removal…it can all get overwhelming. Especially if you’re just starting to form your own beauty routine.
It’s almost impossible to do a full skin care regimen every day, especially if you’re a busy middle school student or high schooler. I’ve found through experience that Simple products are not only great for me, but a way for my daughter to have a simplified skin care routine that she will actually stick to.
Makeup removal. In my opinion, makeup removal is the most important step of any skin care routine. I know how tempting it can be to go to bed without removing your makeup after a long day of work or in my daughter’s case a long day of classes. This is one of the worst things you can do for your skin. My daughter isn’t wearing much more than lip gloss yet, but I know that will all be changing in the very near future. The Simple Micellar Wipes are great for quickly wiping away makeup after a long day. I use these every night to remove my makeup and feel good knowing I am setting a good example for her.
Simple Micellar Wipes are the most advanced Simple facial wipe to date. Made with no artificial perfume or dyes or harsh chemical they are gentle even on the most sensitive skin. Made with clever cleansing bubbles called Micelles, which are smart enough to lift makeup and unclog pores, the Micellar Wipes leave skin feeling refreshed and instantly hydrated.
I appreciate a simple skincare routine, and really like that I don’t have to use a special eye makeup remover. The Simple Micellar Wipes take off the most stubborn waterproof mascara with just one wipe.
Cleansing. Especially during the puberty years, it is important for tween and teen girls to cleanse often. Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes are great for girls to keep in their gym locker or backpack for an on-the-go refresher. The wipes gently cleanse skin of impurities and unclogs pores, and leave no greasy residue behind, all in the convenience of a facial wipe. They instantly refresh and hydrate your face leaving skin feeling clean and refreshed which is something I really appreciate living in sunny Florida.
Like other Simple products, the Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes contain no artificial colors, no perfume, and no harsh chemicals that can upset your skin. They are dermatologically tested and approved which is something this mom feels good about. The 25 count package of wipes contains new aqua-lock ™ which prevents the wipes from drying out so even the last wipe is as fresh as the first.
Exfoliate. Another healthy skin care habit I’ve taught my daughter is exfoliation. While exfoliation is important for the removal of dead skin cells, you don’t want to over-exfoliate which can result in inflammation and accelerated aging. A proper exfoliation will leave your skin brighter, cleaner and more radiant.
It is good to exfoliate 2 or 3 times per week, or as little as once per week for overly sensitive skin. What you use to exfoliate is equally important. Simple Exfoliating Wipes are made with good-for-you pro-vitamin B5 and vitamin E. They gently lift away dead skin cells, and leave skin revived and revitalized.
It’s almost impossible to do a full skin care regimen every day, especially if you’re a busy tween or teenager. I’m a huge fan of Simple products and how they help SIMPLEfy my daughter’s routine and my own!
