too young for a skincare routine?

Alright so uhm, since I got my period when I was around 9 , acne started appearing when i was 10-11, so I started a skincare routine when I was 13 I'm 14 now and my skin is kinda improving, but it's just that my mom keeps telling me I'm too young to start a skincare routine 🥲, I even searched on Google and it said 12 is a good age to start but she doesn't believe me and she says that she won't buy for me skincare products anymore, so I'm trying to save up and buy my own lmaoo. So do you guys think 14 year old is too young for a skincare routine or what?? 😭

It's not too young to start! Your situation is similar to mine back when I was at that age. Except mine was the other way around. Acne appeared first when I was 9, then period came a year later 😂 So yeah I started a basic skincare routine in order to keep the oil and pimples under control. Otherwise it'll just get worse. A basic routine consisting of a salicylic acid cleanser, moisturiser and sunscreen is good enough to start. You can also include a spot treatment like benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid to apply on the pimples.

as far as I know, we can immediately start to build our skincare routine when our skin needs it. so I don't think it's too early to start using skincare at 14 since your skin needs it, as long as you choose ingredients & products that are appropriate for your age, and keep it simple. you can buy it by yourself by saving or selling something to earn money. it can be small items such as stickers, stationery, or hair accessories^^
