Acne can be the bane of a teenager’s existence. It is your face that people first see and when they see skin that is riddled with acne it does not promote the best first impression. When acne first begins to rear its ugly head, its victims want it gone and they want it gone quickly. I have found a product that delivers. When my 16-year-old son began to break out, I was reminded of my own teen years and how I struggled to keep my skin clear. Ultimately, I had had to visit a doctor and take tetracycline to get my acne prone skin under control. I did not want my son to go through the same ordeal so I began doing a little research.
Acne products have come a long way and Neutrogena Rapid Clear Products are top of the line. I have tried these products myself and I can attest to how effective the entire line is and how quick they work. When used together as a complete system they work amazingly fast! My son saw a marked improvement in his skin overnight. The system is easy and is much more economical than other products on the market today. Additionally, this product is carried by most drug stores and mass merchandise stores, including Wal-Mart. It is easy to find, affordable and easy to use.
The system begins with the Oil Control Foaming Cleanser. This is a gentle cleanser that cleans the skin and prepares it for the rest of the treatment system. Using warm water, not hot, simply apply a little cleanser to your hands or a washcloth and gently work into a lather on your face. Rinse well and pat dry with a clean, dry towel. Follow with the Daily Treatment Pads. Use one and sweep it over the skin, particularly in the affected area. It is gentle, light and typically non-drying so it is safe for most skin types.
This is followed by the Acne Defense Face Lotion which is a gentle moisturizer created especially for acne prone skin. The Acne Eliminating Gel, though, is the miracle in a tube. Apply the gel to the areas that are affected. You will see an improvement within hours. The gel eliminates most of the redness and swelling and the acne is much less noticeable literally over night.
If you use them together, daily, you will be amazed at the results. Try using them twice a day, but if your skin becomes too dry, cut back to once a day and use something soothing like Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleanser. Don’t over cleanse your skin, this can have adverse effects. Constant scrubbing and cleansing can stimulate the oil glands and make matters worse.
My 16-year-old son had bad acne and I got the products for him. He was almost completely clear in just a couple of days. He is completely sold on the products and where he was once a follower of Proactiv, he no longer even entertains the thought of switching brands. When I have a breakout now and then, I use the spot treatment and it works literally overnight. I wake in the morning with a marked improvement in the condition of my skin. I promise you, it really works.
