    Beauty: 5 Face Washes for Teens

    When you’re young, it’s easy to feel like you have plenty of time to start worrying about taking care of your skin. And while it’s true that you certainly shouldn’t be worried, that doesn’t mean you can’t start taking steps toward protecting your body’s largest organ now!

    The two most important things you can do? Wash your face twice a day and never go outside without putting sunscreen on any exposed skin. Even if you don’t have skin issues like acne, keeping your face and pores clean is still important. “Problem” skin issues can come about at any time due to genetics and hormones, but are also highly affected by your diet and lifestyle.

    Soon we’ll bring you our favorite sunscreens, but for today we want to round up five of our favorite face washes. It’s important to remember that the price tag on a product does not equal its level of effectiveness. The best thing to do is to pay attention to the ingredients and what works well with your skin. Once you’ve found what works for you, try to stick to a habit of washing your face in the morning and then right before you go to bed.

    Check out our picks below and then let us know your top choice in the comments!


    Clinique is a well-known and respected brand in the world of face cleansers (not to mention makeup!). The liquid facial soap ($15) is our favorite and is an especially good choice for combination skin.


    Olay is a great product line for ladies with sensitive skin. The basic cleanser is an inexpensive drugstore staple that doesn’t contain any harsh ingredients that’ll inflame your skin. (Foaming Face Wash, $5)


    Neutrogena is definitely one of the leading brands in skin care and their classic orange Oil-Free Acne Wash ($5) is a standard choice among teen girls. Touted as the #1 recommended product among dermatologists for acne (hey, we believe it), the cleanser contains salicylic acid to get rid of any acne you have now and to help prevent future breakouts.


    This one doesn’t smell so great, so we apologize for that in advance. But other than that, Dermalogica Clearing Skin Wash ($33) is super well-reviewed by those with oily skin.


    This foaming cleanser by Suki is pricey, but it smells amazing (lemongrass extract!) and feels really cool on your face as it exfoliates. (Suki Face, $32)

    Honorable mentions: Mary Kay, Proactive, Phisoderm, Boscia, Cetaphil, Philosophy, Purpose, Origins, Fresh, Kiehls, Basis, Aveda and Bioelements.

    Girls, what do you use to wash your face? Are you loyal to one in particular, or do you switch products frequently? Sound off in the comments below!
