Eating fruits are a great source of vitamins and antioxidants to get you going and feeling great. Your skin can use vitamins and antioxidants to give you that extra boost.

Back to School Shopping Essentials to Keep Acne at Bay
Nearly three‐quarters of young women ages 13‐24 struggle with oily skin every day and identify recurring oiliness as a key aspect of frustration and bother. Recognizing that oil absorption is an unmet need, the Clean & Clear Brand developed the Clean & Clear Advantage Oil Absorbing Collection to help control unwanted shine.
The line contains a breakthrough POWDERPARTICLES™ technology with rice protein that targets excess shine by absorbing 50 percent more oil than a leading ingredient. Combined with salicylic acid to treat and help prevent breakouts, this collection is the ideal solution to help control blemishes and shine.
If your teen suffers from the ever-present acne flareups, consider the Clean & Clear Advantage Oil-Absorbing Cleanser which actually eliminates 85% of built up oil and controls shine all day long. Couple that with the Clean & Clear Advantage Oil Absorbing Acne Treatment which functions as a daily moisturizer. The difference though is that this lotion will actually absorb excess oil and not clog pores.
Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash is the number one acne fighting cleanser, recommended by dermatologists because it provides effective, yet gentle acne cleansing. This medicated, gel facial wash is formulated with 2% Salicylic Acid to penetrate deep down into pores to help eliminate most acne blemishes and keep pores clog-free.
Because it effectively removes excess oil in pores, Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash can be used daily to help prevent future breakouts. And Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash rinses away clearly, so there’s no left-over residue. In addition, special skin comforters, including aloe and chamomile, soothe and condition skin to help prevent irritation and over-drying. The result is skin that’s clean, clear, residue-free and never oily.
A Few Back to School Shopping Must-Haves Just for the Girls!
When it comes to breakouts, it’s not surprising that many women feel self-conscious about their acne, but sometimes covering up the skin with makeup can clog pores and leave an unnatural cakey look. With the Neutrogena SkinClearing Line, you don't just cover up--you clear up! Not only does this line of products hide breakouts with a natural-looking finish but it also treats and helps prevent future breakouts from occurring. In fact, in a clinical test, 100% of women who tried it had improved skin over time.
Available in a mineral powder, blemish concealer and liquid foundation, this multi-benefit line is the first to combine flawless makeup coverage with MicroClear technology, a breakthrough patented technology that cuts through oil quickly to speed the delivery of maximum-strength acne medicine, Salicylic Acid, straight to the source of breakouts. MicroClear technology has been clinically proven to help prevent up to 70% of emerging acne from reaching the skin’s surface.
Banish the daily shine for good with the Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets. These take-along sheets remove excess oil without smudging make-up and without leaving a residue on the skin's surface. They are smooth, flexible sheets that change color with use so young women can actually see them working. The sheets are conveniently packaged in a slim, pop-up package for instant, on the go freshening anytime, anywhere.
Taking off makeup ever day can be a hassle. Many removers do not fully remove product leaving traces of makeup, that can end up causing clogged pores and breakouts. Neutrogena Makeup Removing Cleansing Towelettes are ultra soft cloths that gently dissolve all traces of make-up, even waterproof mascara, for clean, fresh, make-up free skin in one easy step. They offer superior make-up removal with a patent pending technology that is so effective, it easily dissolves long-lasting extended-wear make-up.
