My son has been dealing with acne prone skin ever since he moved into his teen years. I feel pretty safe talking about this here since he doesn't read this blog (the horror!) and if any of his friends do, I'm sure I'll hear about it...but better to ask forgiveness than permission, right? Ha! Anyway, we've tried many things to combat this problem, which you should all read as I've spent money on many things and then he's been too lazy to use them, all while complaining about how bad his skin looks, until now.
Apparently the trick to getting my son to do something is to make it even easier than soap and water. What is easier than that?
Neutogena Oil-Free Cleansing Wipes-Pink Grapefruit these wipes have salicylic acid built right in, so not only do they cleanse the skin but they treat it at the same time.
Done and done. His skin is already clearing up and it's only been a couple of days of consistent use.
Of course, there are times when he might be required to step up and actually do a second step with a spot treatment and for that I purchased a generic benzoil peroxide product from Target (which I would link to but of course they don't even have it on their own website, maddening!) just look for the spot treatment from Neutrogena and you'll find the Up and Up equivilant right next to it.
