BISOUS by L'ORGANIQ Teen Exam Season Skin

As exam season looms, the pressure on teenagers intensifies. From late-night study sessions to the stress of performance expectations, the mental and emotional toll can be overwhelming. Amidst this chaos, one aspect often overlooked is skincare. While it may seem trivial compared to acing exams, maintaining a good skincare routine can significantly benefit teens, not just in terms of physical appearance but also in managing stress and boosting confidence during this critical period.


In this blog we cover our advise for teen exam season skin, using our micro-range designed specifically for teenage skin; BISOUS by L'ORGANIQ.


Teen Exam Season Skin

It's no secret that stress can wreak havoc on the skin, whatever age we are. During times of high stress, the body releases cortisol, a hormone that triggers increased oil production in the skin. This excess oil, combined with other factors like dirt and bacteria, can lead to clogged pores, breakouts, and exacerbate existing skin conditions such as acne.


For teenagers already grappling with hormonal changes, exam pressures, and erratic sleep schedules, the impact on their skin can be particularly pronounced. Neglecting skincare during this time can worsen existing skin issues and contribute to a negative self-image, further exacerbating stress levels.


The Benefits of a Teen Skincare Routine

Implementing a consistent skincare routine tailored to their specific needs can offer teens a multitude of benefits, especially during exam season:


1. Stress Relief: Engaging in a skincare routine can serve as a form of self-care and relaxation amidst the chaos of exam preparation. Taking even just a few minutes each day to cleanse, moisturise, and pamper the skin can provide a much-needed break and help alleviate stress.

2. Improved Confidence: Clear, healthy skin can boost confidence levels, which is especially crucial during times when self-esteem may be challenged by academic pressures. Feeling good about their appearance can empower teens to face challenges with a positive mindset and greater resilience.

3. Enhanced Focus: Establishing a skincare routine encourages discipline and structure, qualities that are invaluable during exam season. By dedicating time to self-care, teens can cultivate habits that promote overall well-being, including improved focus and concentration.

4. Skin Health: A consistent skincare regimen can help prevent and manage common skin issues such as acne, dryness, and irritation. By keeping the skin clean, hydrated, and protected, teens can minimise the impact of stress-induced breakouts and maintain a healthy complexion.

5. Long-Term Habits: Encouraging teens to prioritise skincare during exam season lays the foundation for lifelong habits of self-care and healthy living. Learning to take care of their skin now sets them up for success in managing their overall health and well-being as they transition into adulthood.


Building a Teen-Friendly Skincare Routine

Creating a skincare routine doesn't have to be complicated. Here's a simple regimen suitable for teens:

1. Hydrating Cleanse: Using a deeply nourishing gentle face wash BISOUS by L'ORGANIQ Clear and Bright Face Wash and cleanser, BISOUS by L'ORGANIQ Clear and Balance Cleanser, will not only ensure an effective double-cleanse, completed morning and night, it will remove dirt, oil, and impurities from the skin, keeping it hydrated without the addition of moisturiser and most importantly balanced.

3. Sun Protection: Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher daily, even on cloudy days, to protect the skin from harmful UV rays.

4. Spot Treatment: Treat acne breakouts with a targeted spot treatment such as our BISOUS by L'ORGANIQ Clear Skin Treatment Gel, a formula with tea tree, aloe vera and sea buckthorn fruit, natural breakout banishing ingredients.

5. Body & Mind: Rich in natural oils, our fabulous BISOUS by L'ORGANIQ Happy Days Body Wash is blended with Aloe Vera to cleanse, grapefruit and orange to refresh and a little soothing lavender, sage and chamomile to calm and ready any teen for the day ahead or just before bedtime.

6. Consistency: Sticking to a consistent routine will give the best results; daily consistency is key in maintaining healthy skin.


During the whirlwind of exam season, taking care of teen skin may seem like a minor concern. However, the benefits of a good skincare routine extend far beyond just physical appearance. By prioritising self-care and incorporating simple skincare practices into their daily routine, teens can better manage stress, boost confidence, and cultivate habits that promote long-term well-being. So, as exams approach, remember that clear skin is not just a cosmetic goal but a vital component of overall happy skin health.
