The ‘Kid Facial’ Goes Mainstream, Thanks to Victoria Beckham and Daughter
The internet has long been a place to fiercely debate whether or not children should wear makeup. This weekend, armchair parenting experts were spoon-fed another potentially controversial question: How do we feel about kids getting facials?
It began, as these things often do, on Instagram Stories, where Victoria Beckham showed her 7-year-old daughter Harper getting a facial from Dr. Barbara Sturm. The Dusseldorf, Germany-based aesthetics doctor is well-known for her celebrity clientele, who include Kim Kardashian and Bar Refaeli.
But what, if anything, will all this pampering do to an already-poreless young child? Not much, experts say.
That is a sentiment Dr. Michele Farber of Schweiger Dermatology Group in New York agrees with: “When in the right hands, facials can also be very helpful to unclog pores and accelerate healing of lesions—just be careful of who is performing your facial, as any aggressive extractions can lead to scarring.”
Other skin treatments a woman should have a valid ID before trying? Best to save microdermabrasion, a procedure that gently sands off layers of skin, and chemical peels until after one’s 21st birthday.
