BACK-TO-SCHOOL: STARTING THE DAY WITH CONFIDENCE

This site contains affiliate links. Please see policies for more information.

I was asked to participate in the #ClearlyConfident campaign, sponsored by Clearasil® at Walgreens. Although I have been compensated, all opinions are my own.

This summer just flew by and it’s already time to start prepping for back-to-school. One thing I’ve learned as a mom is to be prepared. Be prepared for crazy mornings, good mornings, lost lunch boxes, no socks, last minute presentations etc. While you can’t possibly be prepared for everything, you can make your life a little easier by planning ahead, keeping a good list/calendar, and staying stocked up on necessities or favorites.

We’ve always tried to instill confidence in the boys and one of those ways was to encourage their own personal style. They’ve slowly developed favorite toiletry items, clothing, hairstyles etc. I think allowing them to choose these things on their own has allowed them even more freedom of expression beyond their clothes which greatly impacts their confidence. One of the brands I love to keep in their bathroom without them asking for it is Clearasil®. Jared and I both kept Clearasil in our cabinets in high school and they’ve come out with even better products since then.

Their products are definitely a must-have for back-to-school and are already sitting in the boys’ bathroom in case they need them. Since sweat and stress (hello back to school time in Phoenix) are the two biggest perceived causes of pimples or acne, I have a feeling we’ll be dealing with a breakout or two when school starts so it was important to me to have great products on hand that they wouldn’t have to come to me to ask to buy some after the fact.

We went through the products together so they know they’re there and how they work so that they’re ready in case of a panicked morning before school.

We went to Walgreensand picked out:

  • Clearasil Ultra® Rapid Action Vanishing Treatment Cream that delivers max strength acne medication into pores and works FAST with visible results in as little as 4 hours (reduces redness and pimple size). Where was this stuff when I was in high school?!
  • Clearasil Ultra® Rapid Action Pads for ease of useand because it also has fast acting medication.
  • Clearasil Ultra® Rapid Action Daily Face Wash to use at night so they can wash the sweat and dirt from the day away before bed. They can use this for clearer skin every day as part of their daily routine.

Besides having great products on hand to make your teens feel confident, what else can you do? Here are some ways I try to start the boys’ days off feeling confident:

  • A great breakfast (or just their favorite breakfast).
  • Music – we always have music playing but the morning is the perfect time for upbeat music to get the day started off right.
  • Fun notes or quotes – just a sticky note on the mirror works but I like to switch out printables in the bathroom! It’s fun and an easy way to decorate. I made a new one just for you to print out HERE. It’s a quote from Jim Rohn “Either you run the day or the day runs you”.
