Natural products for teens

When your kids start to grow up, it can be difficult to keep them on a healthy track. Thankfully, there are effective and pure products for everything from acne to energy to help you through the tween and teen years. Check out some of our fave products for young adults and check out our newest segment on Daybreak this Thursday!

Natural Supplements for Acne
Not only can teens treat acne by applying products to the skin, they can also treat acne internally as well. Little did you know that some of the most widely studied acne treatments are supplements that you have probably heard of. For instance, Vitamin C  helps to ramp up the immune system and fight free radicals while helping to heal and repair skin. It can even help to take the red out of skin by fighting inflammation. Zinc is good for acne because it helps to boost immunity and wound healing. Finally, Fish Oils can be beneficial for acne because they contain omega-3 fatty acids which helps to balance stress hormones and fight flare-ups.

Luna Organics Makeup
When your child starts experimenting with makeup, help them discover products made entirely with natural, non-toxic, hypoallergenic materials. Luna Organics is perfect for young children for dress up to tweens who are growing up. All products contain the same ingredients as adult mineral makeup but at a much lower cost. Plus, all ingredients are FDA-approved and comply with standards set by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics (non-toxic, no animal testing, etc).
