Boost Your Teen’s Confidence With Clearasil! #ClearasilMom #MC @Clearasil #Sponsored

*I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Clearasil. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.


    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.

    You can put your best face forward with Clearasil® by learning about their trusted skincare products on Facebook and Twitter.  Remember, looking good doesn’t have to be a coincidence!

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?

  1. Terry My Journey With Candida says

    My one Granddaughter always had a lot of trouble with acne. It took her a long time to figure out how to get it under control and keep it that way. It is nice to see you are nipping your sons problem in the bud.

  2. I have no children as you all know-but I used to use Clearasil way back when. I didn’t have much trouble with acne thank heavens. Of course back then they did not have the washes-just the skin colored cream that we all seemed to have in our possession at all times just in case! It worked then-I’m sure it will work even better now!

  3. Lesley Stevens says

    Clearasil has been around forever. It was around when I was in school. It is such a hard thing to go through school with acne, I had it really bad. Drink lots of water and keep your face clean.

  4. My sons love this brand! I’m with you on teaching good skin care habits, certainly a great thing to boost self-esteem and create great life-time habits.

  5. I need to go ahead and get my son into a good habit of cleaning his face. If genetics has any part in his acne future, he will definitely need to have a good regime.

  6. This is so tough on kids. My son is suffering .. I have to look into this. Thanks for the information post.. on facial cleansing!

  7. I also used I used Clearasil when I was younger. My children do use this too and also try different brands. It definitely helps!
