Zia Natural Skincare Balancing Elixir contains essential oils and phytonutrients that help heal existing acne and prevent further breakouts.

Young girls may be drawn to high-priced skin care products with fancy packaging, but those aren't always the best products for the job. Queen Helene Mint Julep Natural Facial Scrub is a bargain-priced product that works surprisingly well. It helps remove dead skin and excess oils, but won't over-dry your skin.

Buying Only What You Need

It can be tempting to go wild and buy every kind of children's skincare product out there, but that will only hurt your wallet, clutter your bathroom and over-complicate your child's life.

Remember that the purpose of using separate skin products for children is that their skin needs gentler care. Some products marketed to kids are basically low-end adult skin products wrapped in child-attracting packaging. Read the labels. Test products on your own skin and give them a sniff. If they seem harsh or give off a chemical-based scent, leave them on the shelf.

Once you find a product that works for your child, you'll want to stick with it and possibly purchase other products from the same company's line.
