Pointers With Portela: Potentially Harmful Tween Skin Care


In this week’s Pointers With Portela, the 208SkinDoc discusses the recent trend of tweens buying excessive skin care.

In one of his most recent YouTube episodes, "Dermatologist Reacts to Outrageous Tween Skincare Routines," Dustin Portela, DO, a board-certified dermatologist and dermatologic surgeon at Treasure Valley Dermatology in Boise, Idaho, reviews the recent trend of tweens buying and using potentially harmful skin care products that they don't need. According to Portela, "Skin care is personal and less is often more, especially for young, delicate skin."

Topics covered in Portela's talk include:

  • Why some popular skin care trends might be damaging for young skin
  • Products that can be beneficial for tweens
  • Simple skin care advice for tweens
