Skin Care Routine for Tweens, Teens, and Adult Acne

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. All opinions about adult acne are 100% my own.

Clearasil Products #ClearasilMom

My son is a teenager now and is experiencing acne.

I’m afraid this is something he gets from me. I started getting acne outbreaks at about the same age and was plagued by zits my entire teen life. Heck, I still am, and I’m fifty.

Adult Acne

Seriously, shouldn’t I be over acne breakouts? Come on adult acne is a curse!

Before Clearasil. Okay, I know a closeup of my pimples is not attractive and I can’t believe I’m showing them, but it is what it is. 🙂

It is frustrating as a mom (not only to have to deal with adult acne myself at my age) that my son has to deal with it. My wish would be that he had a clear complexion and never have to worry about acne. Pimples are really tough on a tween or teen. I can still remember the embarrassment and aggravation of dealing with zits.

In fact, I remember a skin/acne breakout being the end of the world.

I have learned over the years that it is important to have a good skincare routine. A couple of weeks ago, my son and I started using two Clearasil products…

  • Ultra Rapid Action Daily Gel Wash – fast acting to give you clearer skin in as little as 12 hours. And that’s important when you’re a tween performing in a play at your local children’s theatre for three weekends with hundreds of people looking at you on stage.
  • Hydra-Blast Oil-Free Face Wash – a daily face wash that is gentle for someone like me with more sensitive skin. It’s also a plus for older women (and men) like me who wants oil-free products. I like that it has a moisturizing complex that leaves my skin soft.

After using both Clearasil products my son’s skin was clear and ready for his opening night in “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever” last night. He is very happy about that.

Four Days After Using Clearasil.

I’m also very happy that the two pimples I had two weeks ago are gone and my face was still clear for his opening night as well. My son asked me not to use his photos (before or after) so I’m respecting his wishes.

We both used the Clearasil Ultra Rapid Action Daily Gel since we had active breakouts and have been using the Hydra-Blast Oil-Free Face Wash every morning. And my son is realizing the importance of clean, clear skin.

My son and I are very happy with the results we are seeing from using Clearasil regularly. Here’s to beautiful, healthy skin!

I may not be able to do anything about my adult acne, but thankfully, Clearasil gets me through it.
