SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA, UNITED STATES, February 15, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Good Morning America, renowned dermatologist and tween skincare expert Dr. Brooke Jeffy, MD spoke about the potential harm of using adult skincare products on tween skin. With the rise of social media and the pressure to have flawless skin, many tweens are turning to adult skincare products without realizing the potential damage they can cause.

During her segment, Dr. Jeffy emphasized the importance of understanding the differences between adult and tween skin. She explained that adult products containing ingredients such as retinol, harsh exfoliants, and anti-aging serums deal with age-related changes like wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and dullness of the skin. Tweens do not have these adult skin issues, so these products can harm their skin barrier.

Dr. Jeffy also addressed what can occur when the skin barrier is not working effectively. Tweens can experience symptoms like redness, rashes, infections, and breakouts. “The skin is not just a wall you can throw anything at,” said Dr. Jeffy.

As an expert in dermatology, Dr. Jeffy’s appearance on Good Morning America shed light on a crucial topic. It highlighted the potential risks of using adult skincare products on sensitive tween skin and emphasized the importance of using age-appropriate products. As the saying goes, “prevention is better than cure,” and in this case, it starts with educating ourselves and our children on proper skincare practices. She emphasized the need for parents to have open and honest conversations with their tweens about skincare and to consult with a dermatologist if they have any concerns.
