My tween son is always on-the-go. He has basketball practice twice a week as well as at least two basketball games per week. As if that wasn’t enough, he is also involved in his school’s drama team and participates in a traveling basketball team that competes out of state during the Spring. As he is getting closer to officially becoming a teen, I have noticed some subtle changes in his skin. Not only is it oilier, but I have seen some slight acne rear its head from time to time.
Both his father and I have always had oily skin and dealt with acne during adolescence so we are trying to instill in him the importance of keeping his face clean at all times to prevent breakouts. We know how embarrassing acne can have a negative effect on a teenager’s self-esteem and social life so we are hoping he will take our advice seriously and make sure he washes his face regularly.
I used Clearasil® products when I was a teenager and they did a great job keeping my skin clear and giving me the confidence to show off my beautiful skin. They have always been dermatologist tested and a trusted skincare brand in our home. Naturally, these are also the products that I have introduced to my son to help him establish a daily skin care routine. I’ve been encouraging him to wash his face as soon as he gets home from basketball practice and after his games because that is when his face is especially oily due to all the physical activity.
He really likes washing his face after basketball with Clearasil® Daily Clear® Oil Free Daily Face Wash. It works really well because not only does it help to minimize breakouts, but it also contains a moisturizing agent to keep his skin soft. His skin looks fresh and clean after washing with it and he has noticed that he hasn’t been getting little pimples here and there anymore. Right now, this face wash is perfect for him because it is gently enough for everyday use.
When he gets older, I also have another Clearasil® product in our arsenal to help him deal with breakouts quickly and efficiently. Clearasil Ultra® Rapid Action Daily Gel Wash contains acne medication that acts quickly to clean pores and make skin healthy. It works so fast that you see clearer skin in as quickly as 12 hours. My son might not know this yet but we all know that acne always rears its ugly head right before a special event like prom or graduation. Having a fast acting product like this one will help us to avert any pimple catastrophes that should arise in the future.
I’ve noticed an improvement in my son’s confidence and level of independence since he began to incorporate Clearasil® products into his skincare routine. I love that he is empowered about his hygiene and that he feels good about how his skin looks.
Let’s Discuss: What are some activities that the teen in your life is involved with and how do you think incorporating Clearasil into their daily routine will help boost their confidence?
