This is a compensated campaign in collaborations with CLEAN & CLEAR and #WeAllGrow Latina Network. All opinions are my own.
Over the years, my teen’s back to school shopping list has drastically changed. Gone are the days of bringing extra glue sticks to class for those elementary school projects. Now his shopping list consists of things to help him look and feel his best like new clothes, snacks to fuel him through the day, just the basics of supplies -pencils, a notebook or two and folders, and personal care products like CLEAN & CLEAR®. It’s kind of bittersweet actually. Watching him go from this cute little toddler to a teen in the blink of an eye.
The older he’s gotten the more aware he is of his appearance how he looks. He has a certain style when it comes to his clothes and his sneakers. And he’s become more aware of his skin care when he noticed his first tiny pimple a few weeks ago. That little pimple made him ready to up his skin care game. When he came to me asking what he should try since regular soap and water was cutting it, I immediately thought of CLEAN & CLEAR®. I’ve used it and had wonderful results with my skin so I knew it would be a great choice for him.
I also used this as a time to talk about a few others things he could do to help keep his skin clear and himself confident this year. Maintaining healthy skin inside and out is easy with these tips.
GET PLENTY OF REST
My teen has never been a morning person. The older he gets, the harder it is for him to get up in the morning. That’s why I try my best to stick to a bedtime routine with him, even though he’s a teen now. He has a set bedtime that he needs to follow and When he’s well rested he feels better and it shows in his skin and the way he carries himself.
DRINK PLENTY OF WATER
As an adult, I need to drink plenty of water. Too many sugary drinks and my skin pays the price. Same for my teen. So I make sure he drinks plenty of water throughout the day in place of sugary soft drinks.
WATCH WHAT YOU EAT
Eating a healthy, well-balanced diet is another way to keep your skin looking healthy from the inside-out. We talked about fueling his body with fresh fruits and vegetables and limited the sugary snacks.
WASH YOUR FACE DAY AND NIGHT
Putting together a skin care routine for him was easy. I went with some of my favorites from CLEAN & CLEAR®. Washing his face day and night is important to keep skin looking healthy. Each morning he washes his face with CLEAN & CLEAR® MORNING BURST® Facial Cleanser.
The unique gel cleanser is specifically formulated with effective cleansers and vitamin-enriched BURSTING BEADS® to awaken skin, making it the perfect choice for washing his face in the morning. The gentle cleansers remove dirt, oil and impurities while the BURSTING BEADS® with vitamins gently dissolve as you later to help revive and awaken skin. As is foams, it releases an invigorating citrus fragrance to energize and enliven the sense to jump-start the day.
We talked about the steps to use the product so he could see just how easy it is to take care of his skin.
He squeezed a dime-sized amount onto his fingers and worked it into a later.
Then he worked the foamy cleanser onto his face using his fingertips to swirl it around.
Then rinse it off and pat dry your face with a towel. The cleanser is A-OK for everyday use.
At night, the CLEAN & CLEAR® Deep Action Exfoliating Scrub is designed to invigorate skin by cleansing pores deep down and gently exfoliating surface skin. The oil-free, refreshing formula includes: unique cooling agents that leave skin looking and feeling revitalized, a blend of specially sized micro-beads for gentle, effective exfoliation and cleansing, and Menthol to instantly rejuvenate skin. It’s great to use at night in the shower.
