Becoming a teenager is a difficult time, there’s no doubt about it. Your little ones are making the massive jump from primary to secondary school, all the while their bodies are going through arguably one of the biggest changes it physically can.
One of the most notorious physical changes soon to occur? Temperamental tweenage skin. With the surge of newly acquired hormones comes spotty, oily skin. For many youngsters, this is an incredibly large knock to their self confidence and image, which is why it is best to try and support them in every way possible.
There are so many brands out there that claim to cure tweenage acne in days, even hours – but which of these brands are being honest about this, and what products are pumped full of unnatural chemicals?
At My Baba, we tend to prefer brands that use natural ingredients. By using organic products, you can be sure that even the most sensitive of skin won’t be at too much risk of a flare up caused by a heavy amount of manufactured chemicals.
Below we have listed our natural skincare brands who target tweenage problem skin!
