Building confidence and learning a life skill is empowering.
As a teenager I was always interested in natural skincare, which in the 70’s was difficult to source. This fascination inspired me to commence studying and gain a Diploma from the British Association of Beauty Therapy and Cosmetology. Captivated by a love for studying, I began a long career in Finance, spending many years working in Corporate Finance, 17 years as a Corporate Treasurer and 6 years as a Director.
Now the Mum of a teenager, I found myself making skincare for the family and returning to my original passion. I realised that many youngsters do not take steps to look after their skin and don’t really know how to approach it, finding it overwhelming and confusing. Yet most of them have skin problems, simply due to the fact that they are – teenagers.
This is how teen skincare evolved, with a desire to give teenagers unbiased information and knowledge on how to manage their own skin and make their own products.
Our mission is to equip every teenager with the knowledge to care for their own skin and make their own skincare products.
We aim for every teenager to have access to quality skincare and the skill to be in control of their own skin.
Teenagers are faced with constant change, not only with their bodies, but their entire world. As they steer through discovering who they are, it is comforting to know that they are in control of something.
To be in control of managing their own skin and knowing how to make products themselves, is not only a life skill, but one which empowers them. Teen skincare is here to help teenagers build confidence and self-discipline by providing them with the information to create a cost effective, quick and simple skincare routine. The workshops are unique and enable the participants to make their own products, with access to further recipes through this website.
Once teenagers attend the workshops, they gain the skills to manage their own skin and make their own products. This provides an opportunity for them to go into their bathrooms and look after their skin in total privacy, which is particularly valuable to those teenagers who do not want to be seen using or buying skincare.
It cultivates a life-long self-care routine.
Teen skincare is based in Adelaide, South Australia, and services the Adelaide metropolitan area.
We are also happy to go outside of the metro area, at times, so please contact us for any requests.
We come to you and provide all the equipment and ingredients.
