Hey, hey, hey!
I am so glad you are here and hope you had a fantastic weekend 🙂
Today we are talking about adult acne. Not the kind many of us experienced as teenagers, but acne
that does not appear until we are in adulthood. If you have experienced adult acne you know how frustrating and annoying it is to be dealing with breakouts while in college, or raising your family. Years after your prom or Senior portraits, you are dealing with acne.
That is exactly what my daughter Mandy has dealt with since graduating from High School a few years ago.
I can tell the story, but it’s easier (and more fun because she is so sweet and silly) to hear it from her.
So, I was able to get a few pictures of her when she wasn’t making a face at me, and her little brother’s photo-bomb failed.
I didn’t ever really struggle with acne as a teenager, but since I began college I have noticed I break out all the time. I have tried to figure out if my breakouts are hormone related, effected by my diet or stress and for me there really seems to be no pattern at all. When I do break out the majority of my breakouts occur on my cheeks. I have tried literally every product out there from cleansing pads, face wash, face masks, creams, even well-known costly regimens advertised to work for so many people. I finally met with my Dermatologist, tried a few different prescription creams, even oral contraceptives with very little improvement.
The most success I have ever had was with a facial scrub that contained Salicylic Acid. This scrub was abrasive however, and while it helped it did not leave my skin feeling clean and smooth, but irritated.
When I heard about Clearasil’s NEW! Daily Clear Refreshing Superfruit Cleansers I thought I would give it a try and see if it was less harsh than the other faces washes I have used. I decided to try the Superfruit Wash as that was
an easy step in my morning and evening routine.
I usually use it twice a day, and sometimes follow up with a light oil-free
moisturizer. The Superfruit Wash lathered up really well and a little bit went a long ways. My skin doesn’t feel like I used sandpaper on it or scrubbed it, it just feels clean.
And I am excited to see my breakouts under control and am beginning to see the red and purple acne scars begin to fade. That is encouraging!
I am even beginning to skip my normal makeup routine in the morning, which I have not felt I could do
for a while now. I have spent the past few years using a heavy foundation and powder every day just trying to even my skin out. Wearing mascara and lip gloss only on my face has been really liberating!
I never really thought my adult acne did anything but annoy me. But after seeing an improvement in
my skin, I realized it really did bother me and I feel so much more comfortable skipping my makeup routine now. Seeing results is a wonderful feeling.
So, I am glad I tried Clearasil’s NEW! Daily Clear Refreshing Superfruit Cleansers, and happy to say
that it is working for me. Not only are they gentle, but effective which is just what this girl has been hoping for!
Thank you Mandy, I appreciate you being real and letting your Mom talk about stuff like this (I know
you are not alone in how frustrating this has been!)
