School opening blues? Get those As and enjoy young, stress-free skin

MANILA, Philippines – With school opening comes stress caused by never ending homeworks, projects and exams. And the first to feel the pressure is your young skin as it absorbs or rather breaks out into dreaded acne.

This is why next to preparing all the materials you need to ace your classes, it’s time to focus on preparing your skin to look its best when you’re on campus.

One way to make sure that your skin always looks fresh and stays pimple-free is a simple routine made just for teens.

Step 1: Lather up

Wash your face at least twice a day to banish excess oil on your face and wash away pore-clogging impurities. It’s the most important beauty step.

Step 2: Invest in toner

Your skin produces a lot more oil as a teen, so strip it off by putting a few drops of toner on a cottonball. Swipe over hard-to-reach areas like the corners of your nose and near the ears.

Step 3: Start moisturizing
The surprising cause for an oily or acne-prone complexion: dehydrated skin. Avoid this dilemma by using a light moisturizer over your face and neck twice a day.

Step 4: Spot correct acne

There’s no need to worry if a nasty zit popped up because you had a ton of exams and didn’t have enough sleep. A gel that’s spiked with salicylic acid will help banish that pimple ASAP.

Pond’s offers an array of products that hopes to keep your skin oil-, shine-and acne-free:

* The Pond’s Acne Clear White Facial Wash is the ultimate must-have because it fights 10 oil and acne problems while brightening your complexion. It contains salicylic acid to clear your pores, herbal clay to remove oil, gentle scrubbing beads to exfoliate and tighten pores, and whitening essence for radiant, glowing skin.

*The Pond’s Acne Expert Pore Conditioning Toner reaches deep-seated dirt. It’s perfect for feeling refreshed after a sweaty P.E class. It also contains tea tree extract to help dry pimples a lot faster.

*Reach for a gentle formula, like Pond’s White Beauty For Acne-Prone Skin. You’ll love the spot-less white glow and powdery finish that it leaves on your skin. Beauty bonus: It also contains Detox Vitamins to help lighten pimple marks and blemishes.

*The Pond’s Overnight Pimple Care Gel is a special brew of glycolic acid, aloe vera, and salicylic acid that reduces swelling, redness, and dries up your blemish. You can use it during the day, but this translucent gel works best if applied before bedtime.

 

Enjoy school. Enjoy it better with fresh, pimple-free looking skin to go with those As in class.
