[Back To School Skincare: Teen Edition]

by When Beauty on August 13, 2021

School is about to start soon and besides the usual shopping for supplies and clothes, it’s time to stock up on some skincare to prepare you for all those sleepless study nights you’ll be having. If you’re still recovering from maskne, or currently going through puberty-induced acne we’ve got you covered!



Read below for a simple back-to-school skincare routine that’ll get you through the school year.

Step 1: Cleanse & Exfoliate

While your body is going through hormonal changes, your skin also goes through different changes. Keep your skin clean by first washing with a gentle cleanser and then using an exfoliator that has really fine particles. If your facial scrub is rough with bigger particle sizes then it can cause microtears weakening the skin’s barrier. Don’t over-exfoliate! You might get too eager to scrub away post-acne dark spots for a clearer complexion, however, this can exacerbate your skin’s current conditions.

When Beauty Recommends: We recommend trying out our When Rose Coconut Gentle Exfoliating Scrub Mask, which contains finely milled Natural Coconut Powder Scrub for a gentle exfoliation that will leave your skin smooth and soft. It also contains French Rose Water and Essential Oil to calm down the skin after the exfoliation and provide an extra luxurious aromatherapy in your routine! Start off with exfoliating once a week and gradually increase the number of times suited for your skin type.


Step 2: Pore Clarifying & Acne Care



Next comes deeply cleansing your pores to clarify and remove excess oil without drying your complexion. Before, people believed that a mud mask was supposed to leave your skin feeling squeaky clean, but now we know that stripping all the natural moisture in the skin leads to dryness. So, choosing the right mud mask with clean yet hydrating ingredients is important.

When Recommends: Our When Creamy Mud Pore Clarifying & Minimizing Mask is made with Pure Amazonian Clay without any impurities to deeply cleanse and clarify pores without drying or cracking your skin. It is also formulated with Natural Peppermint Essential Oil to help cool down skin and minimize pores after the deep cleansing from the Amazonian Clay.

Step 3: Toner

After cleansing, it’s important to balance the skin’s pH level to have a more vibrant complexion and balance out your skin tone.

When Recommends: Our When Revivifying Toner Mist with Marine Complex is packed with marine polyphenols from Ecklonia Cava (brown algae) Extract, Sea Water, and Hydrolyzed Collagen which will leave your skin refreshed and hydrated and ready to absorb your next skincare product.

Step 4: Sheet Mask

Have fun with skincare! Use a sheet mask a few times a week by yourself or with friends at a sleepover! Sheet masks help to prevent the evaporation of the essence or serum so that the active ingredients can be delivered to the skin more effectively for better complexion.

When Recommends: Our Simply When Vegan Sheet Mask Line is cost-friendly and vegan certified!

There are four types to cater to firming, brightening, soothing, and clarifying skin concerns.

Step 5: Moisturize

Lastly, keep your skin hydrated daily with a good moisturizer! Even though you may have oily skin, hydration is still important to keep your complexion healthy. Drying out your skin may actually increase sebum secretion. Use a light non-comedogenic moisturizer that won’t clog up your pores.

When Recommends: Our When Berry Dual Gel & Cream Sleeping Mask consists of a unique dual texture, which is light and gentle enough to be used daily. Use different portions of the gel and cream to suit your skin’s changing skin needs from morning and night and during seasonal changes. If you want something light in the morning, use the gel textured part for a light-weight moisturizer. At night or during dry winter season, use more of the cream texture for more intense hydration.

Enjoy going back to school with our skincare tips that’ll leave people wondering what you did to achieve a healthy, glowing complexion during the summer break!
