The Ultimate Skin Care Routine for Quinceañeras

We know planning can be stressful and being stressed can definitely cause breakouts. So, we’ve come up with the perfect skin care routine for quinceañeras, like you! 

First thing’s first, you’ll want to make sure you have as consistent of a morning and night routine as you can. It can be a bit overwhelming at first, but we promise you it’ll be worth it.

It’s essential to follow some sort of routine in order to get flawless skin. Before we jump into the game plan, one of the first steps is figuring out your skin type!

Skin Type

Before you go crazy buying products to make your skin better, make sure you learn what type of skin you have first.

One of the first steps in starting your quinceañera skin care routine for is knowing your skin in order to combat certain issues (breakouts, acne, etc). 

  • Oily Skin
    • When your skin feels greasy. Typically with this type of skin, you’re more prone to acne. Your main concern should be finding the perfect cleansers and exfoliators, since there’s more build up of dead skin.  
  • Dry Skin
    • When your skin feels dry or tight. Your main concern should be hydrating your face and using hydrating products, especially during cold weather. 
  • Combination Skin
    • When your skin is both dry and oily. This type of skin changes a lot, so your main concern is finding the perfect balance of hydration & knowing what areas of your face needs it. 
  • Sensitive skin
    • When your skin is irritated easily. Your main concern is finding products that won’t irritate your skin. 

You’ll definitely want to do some more research on your specific type of skin, so you can get a better idea on what it actually needs.

Pay attention to how your skin reacts to certain times of the year and the environment you’re in. Knowing more will help you with your skin routine and the products you use!

Morning Routine

Here are some steps to a basic morning skin care routine for quinceañeras. You can use whatever steps and products work for you!

Also, make sure to try new products at least a couple months in advance, that way you can know what works on your face well before your big day!

  • Cleanse
    • You want to make sure you get all the dirt or makeup off your face. 
  • Use Serums
    • We highly recommend starting to use a serum. There are many different uses for them, some of which combat the following:
      • Redness
      • Dark Spots
      • Acne
      • Dryness
      • Combination/Oily Skin
  • Moisturize
    • Make sure you use a moisturizer with SPF! 
  • Sun Screen
    • This is a very important step that you do NOT want to skip!
    • You need to make sure you’re protecting your skin from the sun because the sun causes your skin to age faster. 
  • Primer
    • Although you can skip this step, it’s always nice to have that extra protection, especially if you’re planning on wearing makeup!

Evening/Night Routine

Your evening/night routine will be almost the same as the morning routine, except it does include a couple more steps! 

  • Cleanse
    • TIP: Make sure the temperature is just right!
      • Hot water can dry up your skin and make it shiny.
      • Cold water can help tighten your skin if it’s puffy but isn’t the best for cleaning.
      • Lukewarm water can be a great balance of both!
  • Cleanse Again
    • Girl, you got the first layer clean… The second cleansing will get much deeper into your pores! 
  • Toner
    • Toners are going to be your best friend! They help with rebalancing your skin’s pH level and restoring moisture.
  • Exfoliate
    • If you have a daily exfoliator, you won’t need to cleanse twice.
    • A lot of people recommend exfoliating about twice a week, since it can be harsh on your skin.
  • Serum
    • Make sure to be consistent with the types of serums you use!
  • Face Oil
    • Add another layer of moisture. This is perfect for anyone that has dry skin.
  • Eye Cream
    • No matter what age you are, you want to protect your eyes by keeping this sensitive area moisturized!
  • Spot Treatment
    • Sorry Queens, but at your age you’re more prone to pimples and breakouts, so a spot treatment is a must! 

Weekly Routine

Try to do these things at least once a week. Pamper yourself!

  •  Face Mask
    • You can DIY or buy one at your local store. You can also plan a Friday night self care with your damas and do it together!
  • Exfoliate
    • If you don’t have a daily exfoliator, make sure you’re still exfoliating once to twice a week.
    • Be careful! Exfoliating can damage your skin if it’s too harsh or used excessively. 

Additional Skin Care Tips/Ideas

Here are some additional tips that will help you have flawless skin!

  • Do It With Your Damas 
    • Do a nightly video chat skin routine together! It’ll help you keep each other accountable! You guys can gossip about the chambelanes while you’re at it! 
  • Drink Water 
    • We mean it! You want to keep your body and skin hydrated constantly! It actually helps!
  • Limit Junk Food
    • We know hot cheetos or your papas con chile are calling your name after court rehearsals BUT they unfortunately contribute to pimples and acne!
  • Avoid Stress
    • We know sometimes stress is inevitable, but try anything you can to alleviate that.
    • Practice your dance in front of your mirror to take your mind off things or simply just try meditating!
  • Get 8 Hours of Sleep 
    • You want to make sure your body is getting enough sleep to feel refreshed and ready to go in the morning!
  • Get a Facial
    • Invite your damas over and you can make your own facials at home! Pair it with manis and pedis! 
  • Watch YouTube Videos
    • Check out your favorite YouTubers to figure out what skin type they have, what their routine looks like, and what products they use! 
  • Wash Your Pillows Consistently
    • Your pillow can get full of oils, dirt, and sweat, which can be a big contributor in causing you to break out. 
  • Clean Your Phone
    • You’re constantly touching your phone and face, so make sure you keep your phone clean! Your phone is full of germs and bacteria, which is not good for your skin.
  • Don’t Pop Those Pimples
    • Popping your pimples can spread bacteria and actually cause you to break out more.

Hopefully these tips can help you get well on your way to the perfect quinceanera skin care routine for you and have you looking absolutely amazing on your big day!
