I was a teen in the 90's, and while I didn't experience horrendous acne breakouts, I DID have occasional flare-ups, usually on my chin, nose, and forehead. Most of the time, it was blackheads I was battling. And sometimes, especially around that time of the month, I would get one or two HUGE mutant pimples. You know the kind I mean....They are BIG and red and have a nasty white head to them. It was embarrassing to go out in public looking like that, especially as an impressionable teen, whose main concern in life was "How do I look?...Are people going to stare at me?...Is something so glaringly wrong with me that people will point and laugh?....Will that cute guy over there notice me?..."
Let's face it. Teenagers can be very shallow creatures. It's in their nature. Hormones gone awry can cause a multitude of physical issues that kids tend to be very self-conscious of. Maybe a girl is growing out instead of up, or a boy is tall and lanky, and feels bad that he hasn't quite "filled-out" yet. There is so much pressure on today's youth to look a certain way, and it's hard when your body is developing and isn't quite THERE yet.
But one of the most common ailments that teens have to face? Acne. That's right! Teens don't only battle body issues. Many of the problems that occur that can damage a teen's self esteem are right there on the face. A person's face is usually the first thing others notice, and if that face is red, blotchy, and broken out, that doesn't give the best first impression. Of course acne is just a part of growing up. It is almost unavoidable as the changes that come with puberty go into effect. When I was a kid, I used OXY products to help clear my skin up. The products I used were their pads. They are circular, wet, textured pads that scrub the skin. While these worked, they often left my face feeling dry. Sometimes it even burned!
As the mom of a preteen who is just starting to experience the Wonderful World of Breakouts,(note sarcasm) I am so glad that there is a better solution available to him. I am excited to let you know about OXY's newest skin care innovation, their OXY Clinical Line. You know that highly publicized line of greenish acne medication you see on TV all the time? This definitely rivals that system, hands down. OXY Clinical is a wonderful solution to teens and adults alike that suffer from acne problems. (That's right! Acne is not just a teenage problem!)
Take a look at this quick video to learn more about this revolutionary new system!
This is NOT your mama's OXY, that's for sure! I received the OXY Clinical Acne Solutions Pack to try out here in my home. Of course, my 11 year old wanted to do the honors, as he has been experiencing breakouts in the past few months that he has felt very self-conscious about. I am not quite ready as a mom for my baby to hit puberty, but this is not exactly something I have much control over. If I could keep them all little forever, I probably would!
When this package arrived, he literally scooped it up for himself and said that he wanted to be my "employee" and try this wonderful product for himself. I agreed, since I only experience one very occasional blemish, and he would be the better guinea pig to test the effectiveness of this product. So for the past 2 weeks, my son has eagerly been using this product on his face once a day. You can use it twice a day, but I felt that that might be too much for him, since his blemishes aren't too terribly severe. YET.
The Oxy Clinical line of over-the-counter acne medication is clinically shown to provide prescription-level results without a dermatologist. The patented, pharmaceutical-grade ingredients and continuous-action technology eliminates 99% of acne bacteria in just eight hours. This is a very promising formulation, since many other acne solution products tend to fall short and provide less than favorable results.
Let me tell you more about the products in this cute little package:
Advanced Face Wash - Twenty-five percent more acne medicine remains on the skin after rinsing to fight acne and it does not burn the skin. The patented AcneShield salicylic acid technology unclogs pores and fights flare-ups. How cool is that?! So this unique facial cleanser continues to fight acne causing bacteria long after you're done washing your face.
So my son can use this in the morning, along with these other products, and feel confident that they will continue to battle bacteria and impurities while he is at school or at play! With clearer skin, the girls are sure to notice my little blue-eyed boy!
Clearing Treatment - Clinically proven to eliminate 99% of acne bacteria in just 8 hours. Does not leave a white residue.
BIG plus! A lot of acne solutions I have used in the past DID leave a nasty, white residue. With this product, all you can see is nice, clear skin. No films. No chalky residue. Just beautiful skin! No one wants to look like they're a student at a Mime Academy, and OXY gets that. No, they REALLY do get it! My son has not once had that chalky glow while using this product.
Hydrating Therapy - This 3-in-1 formula exfoliates, hydrates, and controls oil. I LOVE the addition of this product. So many other acne products I have used have left my skin feeling like I had just spent a month or more in the arrid Sahara Desert: Dry, parched, and even cracked! Not exactly a pleasant feeling at all. This wonderful Hydrating Therapy leaves skin soft, supple, and moisturized; exactly as it is meant to feel!
Kyle's skin is as soft as can be, and I know that this amazing system is hard at work, keeping him protected from acne flairs. Since he has begun using the OXY Clinical Acne Solutions Pack, he has not experienced a single blemish. His chin, nose, forehead and cheeks are all beautifully clean and clear. His skin also appears renewed in a sense, and he has more of a healthy glow than he did before using. Probably because this fantastic system helps balance the skin and keeps oiliness at bay.
Overall, I think this is an amazing product that is a must have for any parents of preteens or teens that have embarrassing skin issues. Or, if you're a sufferer of adult acne, this would be a great addition to your daily hygiene routine to help you put your best face forward. My son plans to keep using this product, and I feel good about letting him. The OXY Clinical line is gentle, effective, and affordable.
