Back to school season is here and it has me reminiscing on college days, and how much my skin would act up when my stress levels would rise. Don’t get me wrong I still suffer from hormonal breakouts and stress pimples, but for the most part I have it under control. This is all thanks to listening to my skin and knowing what products to use and when. I don’t think there are any other brands more tried and true when it comes to skincare than Neutrogena® and Clean & Clear®. What used to be my go to when it came to my skincare routine in high school and college, is now a part of my adult skincare routine as well.

I’ve realized that in the past I probably wasn’t doing that great of a job when it came to taking care of my skin. Late night study sessions = junk food binging, coffee drinking, and usually falling asleep with my makeup on. If there’s on piece of advice you take away from this let it be this one: Wash off your makeup before going to bed! I think we can all agree there there is no worse feeling than wakeup with crusty eyelashes.

Below I’ve outlined my morning skincare routine to combat breakouts!

One product that really helps with managing breakouts on your body is theNeutrogena® Body Clear® Body Wash – Pink Grapefruit.

This unique, oil-free formula features the maximum strength acne medicine, Salicylic Acid, boosted by oil-blasting MicroClear® Technology.

To keep my pesky breakouts subdued I start each morning off with my Neutrogena® Body Clear® Body Wash – Pink Grapefruit. It’s important to gently exfoliate the areas where you are prone to breakouts, since over exfoliating the area can result in a flare up. If you’re prone to breakouts on your back or shoulders this body wash will be a game changer!

Once I’m out of the shower, dried off, and wrapped my hair up in a towel it’s time to wake my face up! I use Clean & Clear® MORNING BURST® Facial Cleanser each morning to give my skin a nice boost with Vitamin C and Ginseng. This cleanser leaves my skin feeling clean and energized to take on the day!

Lastly, if I’m combatting a breakout the last thing i want to use is an oily or heavy liquid foundation. I find powders work best when trying to fight off or preventing a breakout. That’s where my Neutrogena® SkinClearing Mineral Powder comes in to save the day. This gentle, oil-free foundation powder for acne-prone skin works quickly to treat and help prevent breakouts. On top of that it leaves my skin feeling super soft!

TIP: 

If you’re prone to an oily T-Zone like me use the Orange side of the applicator it comes with to quickly mattify your T-Zone!
