School is back in session and although I’m gonna miss sleeping in, I must admit, I was so ready for my kiddos to go back to school! I’m sure other mamás can relate too. We were fortunate to spend the entire summer with the girls right at home and perfect my tweens back-to-school face wash routine with Clean & Clear. Being a blended family of six, wasn’t always easy but a lot of prayers, faith and love got us to where we are today. The unbreakable bond we all share for one another is one I will be forever be grateful for.
Despite having a super busy summer, it was an unforgettable one too! Busy lives and typical teenage behavior sometimes make it difficult to find quality time to spend with your teenager. But I am lucky enough to have a great relationship between me and my 12 year old stepdaughter, Aalyssa. Thankfully, we’ve always been close since coming into her life at five years old, but it was particularly this summer that made our bond much stronger.
Teenage girls really do crave quality time with their Moms so throughout the summer I made sure to give Aalyssa the quality time she deserved. Excited to start seventh grade, I noticed her blossom right before our eyes. All of a sudden my pre-teen was more cautious about her hair, fashion and voiced her interest about wanting to take better care of her skin.
As we did the essential back-to-school shopping that consisted of school supplies, clothing and some everyday necessities we managed to pick up some great products for her skin type. We chose CLEAN & CLEAR® Morning Burst Facial cleanser, Deep Action Exfoliating Scrub and the new Deep Action 60 second shower mask which are all easy enough for Aalyssa to incorporate into her daily routine.
CLEAN & CLEAR® Morning Burst Facial cleanser is one of Aalyssa’s favorite products to use. The directions were so easy and the results were instant. One of the things I’ve taught Aalyssa is to make sure to wash her face every morning. CLEAN & CLEAR® Morning Burst Facial cleanser helps removes dirt, oil and impurities while BURSTING BEADS gently release vitamins. As the gel cleanser foams, it releases an invigorating citrus fragrance, which energizes and enlivens the the senses to help jump-start the day. She said that it not only smells great but she can actual feel the BURSTING BEADS working on her skin.
As a Mom to a pre-teen, it is highly important to help determine what kind of skin type your teenager has so that you can choose the best product for their skin. This is so because certain cleansers, moisturizers and scrubs work completely different depending on their skin type and may dry their skin out. Once you know what type of skin they have, it gets easier to tackle it. For a deeper clean, Aalyssa uses CLEAN & CLEAR® Deep Action Exfoliating Scrub and boy does she love this one! It cleanses deep down into her pores while working to dissolve dirt, oil and impurities while exfoliating dead skin cells. The oil-free, refreshing formula includes unique cooling agents that leave skin looking and feeling revitalized without clogging pores or drying it out. Aalyssa really liked the tingly, cool feeling as she lathered up her face because it left her skin feeling clean and refreshed. It’s safe enough to use daily.
Although Aalyssa isn’t allowed to wear any make-up of her own I’ve taught her the importance of taking off any makeup before going to bed. Leaving the makeup un-removed, will cause the skin to not breathe and the facial pores might get clogged with the dirt in them. Pimples, Acnes, dark spots and skin rashes could be the consequences of it. So when she gets ready for her evening routine and jumps in the shower she uses the new CLEAN & CLEAR® Deep Action 60 second shower mask (use up to 2-3 times per week alone of after cleansing). It cleanses and exfoliates all in one! The steam activated formula helps refine pores for a deep clean right in your shower. In just 60 seconds, she was able to feel the deep clean as the tingling sensation built, her skin looked brighter, healthier, and she felt refreshed! It’s simple, easy and quick to use so there is no excuse for long showers. So to keep your skin amazing, make it a habit to clear up your face before going to sleep.
For great looking skin, pick up MORNING BURST® Facial Cleanser, CLEAN & CLEAR® Deep Action Exfoliating Scrub and CLEAN & CLEAR® Deep Action 60 Second Shower Mask
at your local major retailer. For more information on these products, visit CLEAN & CLEAR® online.
Back to school ready with new clothes, school supplies and a new found confidence will make for a great school year. Like any proud Mom, I had to take a second to capture the moment. Since 2nd grade I’ve been capturing her first day of school pics and now as a 7th grader, I learned that the time we spent together will continue to have a lasting positive impact on Aalyssa’s life while she’s grown to appreciate looking back at the memories we created.
Is it just me or do you feel that the years have been passing us by? I strive to do better at paying attention to my tweens interests and personality because they aren’t this age for too long. Sad but so true. Listening and using the information or hints in our conversations to find activities that we can share together. If possible, we make it a regular occurrence so that we both have something to look forward to. Consistent quality time together helps solidify our relationship and create a bond that lasts a lifetime.
We would love to hear from you 😉
