What do teens want? GREAT LOOKING SKIN


And they can, with RITES, a fuss-free, local brand that’s perfect for boys and girls

Great skin … in five easy steps

1. Cleanse carefully. At least twice a day.
2. Wash off make-up before bed. Allow your skin to breathe at night without clogging your pores. Sleeping with make-up on can leave you with acne breakouts or develop a bumpy rash.
3. Control oil. Even if your skin is oily, you still need to moisturise. Think hydration rather than excessive oil production.
4. Exfoliate. You need to exfoliate once or twice a week with a gentle, oil-free exfoliator.
5. Keep your hands clean. Every time you touch your face, you are spreading oil, dirt, and bacteria that can turn into a breakout! Always wash your hands before touching your
face and regularly clean and disinfect surfaces that touch your face, like your phone!

Prevention’s better than cure

Rather than trying to cure acne, teens should rather preempt it … starting a skincare routine early to prevent acne and blemishes. RITES is a small, easy-to-use South African
brand, which is cruelty-free and is brilliant for boys and girls.

Your 10 minute RITES routine

Being a teenager can be stressful, so the last thing you need to be worrying about is your skincare regime. To save you the hassle, RITES has put together the ultimate 10-minute routine to combat everything from pimples to oiliness. All you need is five minutes in the morning and five minutes again in the evening to marvel at your skin!
Ready. Set. Go!

Cleanse and Exfoliate: 1 minute
Start your routine off by cleansing and exfoliating your skin. Gently massage the Foam Fighter foaming face wash over your skin. It is the ultimate daily face wash that fights to remove impurities while leaving your skin feeling fresh, renewed, and matte. You can also combine the Power Powder exfoliating powder to gently buff away the unhealthy cells for a noticeably smoother, clearer, and more refined complexion.

Treat: 3 minutes
Next, you will tone the skin with our refreshing toning wipes. The Fresh Crusader wipes provide intensive cleaning for problem areas such as the pesky T-zone. Infused with witch
hazel, cucumber and aloe vera, these wipes help to unclog the pores and provide hydration in one simple swipe. After toning, apply Disappearing Act to specific problem areas and allow time for the product to penetrate the skin. It has been designed to remove excess oil and bacteria, while using natural elements to reduce inflammation.

Moisturize and Protect: 1 minute
Whether you are off to school, or getting ready to hit the sheets, you will want to make sure your face is moisturised. In the morning, use RITES Control Freak SPF30 to moisturise and protect the skin. At night, use the Smart Hydrator to repair your skin while you sleep. Be sure to apply the moisturiser to the face and neck, starting on the cheeks and spreading outwards and upwards, and if you are fast, then you may just have a few seconds to spare! Get into the habit of following the above steps each day for a solid and effective skincare routine.
