FACE THE DAY
Dealing with and treating skin problems that plague teenagers can be quite frustrating. You can help your child take a step toward clear skin with Artisan MedSpa, Laser & Wellness Centers Therapeutic Acne Facial. Ideal for helping clear blemishes, spots and blackheads, the 60-minute facial also helps improve the skins texture and appearance. The facial is recommended for adolescents but also suggested for adults who suffer from occasional breakouts. $75, Artisan MedSpa, Laser & Wellness Center.
The Uptown Girl Teen Package takes four of Mokara Spas most popular treatments and customizes them for clients ages 12-17. In addition to a luxurious manicure-pedicure combo, the package features a clean-skin facial specifically for teens needs. Our favorite feature of the package, however, is the 30-minute School Stress Massage. Focusing on school-related problems such as stressed shoulders, book-bag backaches and stiff texting thumbs, the massage aims to leave teens feeling relaxed and renewed. $185, Mokara Spa.
Located inside Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine, the sweetly decorated Scooops Kid Spa is the perfect place to share an afternoon with your child, getting pampered and primped. With an ice cream theme running throughout (theres a banana-split throne), Scooops offers basic spa services and packages that range from a soothing chocolate organic facial to a relaxing icing hand massage. Theres even the Double Swirl Mommy & Me Pedicure package. Not only does it buy Mom and child time on the banana-split throne, but their toes are treated to a fun flavored pedicure. $79.99, Scooops Kid Spa.

Knowing exactly which products to use and what skin-care regimen to follow helps teens care for breakout-prone skin.

An aesthetician helps customize a facial treatment based on your teens needs, and offers steps she can take and products to use to achieve clear, healthy skin. $65, Sheltons Salon and Spa.
For a child, being treated to a manicure can be quite a treat. Thats why Hollywood Nails & Spa in Fort Worth has customized its popular manicure service for tiny fingers. Just like it does with its adult clients, the salon will soak, massage, exfoliate and moisturize your childs hands. Then, a skilled nail technician will trim and reshape your childs nails, pushing back her cuticles and, if requested, applying nail polish. $18, Hollywood Nails & Spa.
