Should I Let My Children Wear Make Up? Pampering Parties Are a Safe Way of Trying Beauty Products

Research recently conducted indicates that many children throughout the world are using make up at an earlier age than in years gone by. But is it right for a parent to allow his or her children to use these products? In my opinion, a health conscious parent should regulate the type of products that his or her child uses.

So, how safe are the beauty products that your children use? It is a matter of critical importance to keep an eye on what your daughter uses as she prepares for a girl’s party as most of the products can have consequential impact on their skin. Young skin is delicate, so natural products are best. This is particularly important with beauty products such as moisturisers and foundation – liquid products that are applied to a large area of skin. Eyes are delicate too, and it’s important to explain to girls that they should not share make up with friends.

A safe way for children to try make up for the first time is at a pamper party. These parties are growing in popularity as young girls want to try out make up, manicures and hairstyles. There are several companies offering to arrange this type of party, and they will be able to supply a trained beautician who can show the girls how to apply make up and choose the right products, whilst making them feel grown up and beautiful!

When booking a pamper party, make sure that the beautician is trained to work with children and teenagers. In the UK, this usually means being CRB-checked as well as fully qualified in the treatments they provide. The idea of a pamper party is that the beautician will bring the spa to you, so this means providing safe-to-skin beauty products for the girls to try. They may also bring extras such as foot spas and gowns to make the girls feel extra-special. Many pamper party companies have links to cosmetic companies, and may be able to arrange party bags with samples of their products. This is ideal if your children are trying make up for the first time as it will get their new make up bag started!

Girls are growing up faster these days and it’s impossible to stop them experimenting! However, you can make sure that they are trying out products that are not damaging to their skin by doing a little research. And try not to laugh when they show you their first makeover attempts!
