Betwixt and Be Tween Healthy Skin

Valentine’s Day is just days away, and while you might have an idea of what to get your spouse or partner, this could be a great time to play up your love for the tween girls in your life. Tweens are those youngsters roughly ages 8 to 12 who are transitioning into puberty. The moniker comes from the unique issues faced by those between their childhood and teen ages.

If you have a tween who’s just starting to experiment with makeup and skin care, a gift basket from Sephora would be the ideal Valentine’s Day gift. What better way to ease her into loving her own skin than to provide her with the best make up and skin care items money can buy. Think of the bonding moments you two will share and the memories you’ll make together once she sees a basket of goodies from Sephora that you’ve put together for her and tied with a big red bow.

And if you use a Groupon to make your purchases, you can take advantage of special codes and coupons that will save you money and time. With qualifying purchases, you’ll get free shipping and your packages will be delivered in time for you to dress them up for the big day.

Teaching a girl how to keep her skin healthy sets the pattern and pace that will build healthy habits for the rest of her life. It’s never too early to teach the importance of a healthy skin regimen. As her skin changes throughout her life, she’ll remember the basics, making adjustments as she grows. Just as you taught her to brush her teeth twice a day, so too, should she learn to wash her face twice daily, and apply topical solutions to help protect it.

Anti-aging, anti-acne, pigment evening properties and sun screen products should be part of the early discussions you have with her. Emphasize using a moisturizer with a broad-spectrum SPF to keep skin hydrated and protected from both UVA and UVB rays. Applying sunscreen every day at least 20 minutes before going outdoors is key. There are many forms of sunscreen products available from Sephora to add to your beauty basket. By the time she’s an adult, she will settle on her favorites, and will think of you and the loving lesson you taught her one Valentine’s Day when she was just a tween.
