Stress Control Tips for a Healthy and Beautiful Back to School Look with Neutrogena®

    There is nothing like the excitement of going back to school and connecting with all of the people that you haven’t seen all Summer.  In my case, since I am a teacher, I don’t experience the same stresses about appearance that my students do but it is still very important for me to take very good care of my skin.  Over the years, my skin care regimen has changed as my skin has changed and I have modified my skin care products to keep up with my skin’s changing needs.

    The Summer can wreak havoc on your skin between the added sun exposure and the exposure to harsh chemicals like Chlorine in pool water.  Along with the extra anxiety of preparing for school and accepting that vacation time can soon be over, stress can also affect your skin and complexion in a negative way.  In my case, I have noticed that this additional stress causes the oily parts of my skin to become oilier.  I’m sure I don’t have to go into what the consequences of oily skin are like clogged pores, acne, and an extra shiny complexion.  These problems are quickly avoided by using Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Stress Control.

    This product is especially important for your teenagers who are stressing about looking great and acne-free when they go back to school this year.  Neutrogena® Oil-Free Acne Stress Control® products are designed to help you fight acne before it even starts, while simultaneously reducing the appearance of irritation and redness that is associated with breakouts. Acne Stress Control is so advanced, it treats the acne before you can even see it on your skin.  According to clinical studies, it breaks through oil and dirt and stops 70% of acne from emerging.  How is that for reducing your stress level about looking healthy and beautiful?

  4. HI – Thanks for following on my blog today.  I’m on your GFC. 🙂  Great stuff here.  Moisturizing is great no matter what age the calendar says we are. 🙂  Thanks again- I’ll be back lots!

  5. Hi Maria, thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment for me.  I am already a follower of yours (around the early 800’s) and I do love popping in and reading, I don’t leave many comments, but I do lurk.  Now, you may need to sit down for this, it’s actually a little embarrassing, but I don’t have facebook.  I have been thinking about it, but I just love lurking around blog land.  I’ll keep thinking 🙂

  6. Hi! I’m a new follower of your lovely blog!

    Have a nice day!

  7. I so need to start putting something on my face. I wear a hat when Little Bit and I head outside but I really dislike putting any creams on my face. When I sweat it ends up in my eyes and burns, bleck!

  8. My hubby actually uses this product- he has really oily skin and it helps a lot.  Found you thru the Hoppin’ Weekend blog hop and am now following.  🙂
