How do I get my daughter to wash her face?!
Ugh, this was a battle at my house too. My daughter just wouldn’t listen to me, so I decided to take her to the PREP store and have the girls walk her through a basic skincare routine. They taught her how to properly wash her face, and they had such enthusiasm that I was just as excited too! My daughter left with her kit and couldn’t wait to start her own routine that very night. I think it helps because the information isn’t coming from “mom” – it’s coming from a cool, fun, trusted source in an age-appropriate way that she can understand.” ~Ann from Frisco, TX
When should I start a skincare routine?
Every girl and every family is different, but I started my daughter at age 9. She is an athlete (competitive cheer), and between the makeup they use and the sweat build up it was just time for her to start using a cleanser. I also never even thought about my daughter using sunscreen every day, and once PREP walked us through why daily sunscreen is so important, it was obvious I needed to get the Starter Kit so my daughter can have her own skincare routine.” ~Meghan from McKinney, TX
My daughter has sensitive skin, and she doesn’t like wearing sunscreen. Any tips on getting her to use sunscreen?
PREP’s sunscreen is the best!!! As a redhead, I was taught to wear sunscreen every day, year round (which you should be doing no matter what your skin type/tone!). I am also very sensitive and allergic to chemical sunscreens, so I was constantly looking for a better mineral sunscreen. The PREP sunscreen works perfectly, has a great texture and scent, goes on amazing, and there is no weird white residue… I can’t say enough good things. This lotion makes me look forward to putting on my sunscreen! I am finally done looking for the best sunscreen out there. Love!!” ~Avivah from Lexington, KY
How can I talk to my daughter about her acne in a positive way that doesn’t make her feel self-conscious?
Try using a positivity sandwich! Bread: Start out with a genuine compliment. Filling: Bring up the topic of acne and ways you and she can battle it together. Bread: Wrap the conversation up by telling her how proud you are of who she is and how much you believe in her!” ~ Sierra from Houston, TX
