Teen stress help with Neutrogena {Giveaway}

**Contest Closed** 
Winners are #60 Elisabeth and #38 Julie~ Congratulations!

In recent months, my teenage daughters have been faced with enormous amounts of stress. Between school, sports, family and other obligations their plates have been very full and it has shown through their faces. My 17 year old has had frequent breakouts and it has really gotten to her. Every time she looks in the mirror she freaks out and is not happy with what she sees. Of course the higher stress levels have contributed to breakouts. Both girls have been using three products from the Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Stress Control® line~ The Power-Foam Wash, Power-Cream Wash and the 3-in-1 Hydrating Acne Treatment.
They use the cream wash in the morning and the foam wash at night and the acne treatment both times. Their initial comments were that their skin felt super soft and smooth. They both have sensitive skin and the Neutrogena products did not irritate them at all. I wanted to post photos of their beautiful faces but they refused. Teenagers!

Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Stress Control® products are specifically designed to make fighting acne one less stress! So advanced, it stops 70 percent of acne before it emerges. Formulated with MicroClear® technology, which cuts through dirt and oil and delivers 2 percent Salicyclic acid right to problematic areas - Neutrogena helps fight acne right where it starts. By reducing the visible signs associated with acne, such as irritation and redness, kids can feel confident about their skin.

· New! Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Stress Control® Power-Gel Cleanser
· Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Stress Control® Power-Clear Scrub
· Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Stress Control® Power-Foam Wash
· Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Stress Control® 3-in-1 Hydrating Acne Treatment
· Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Stress Control® Power-Cream Wash


I also want to pass along some great tips for teen stress from Dr. Kathleen Gouley Ph.D, a leader in clinical child psychology...

Sleep: Sleep is of the utmost importance and often isn’t emphasized enough to middle school aged children. Most don’t realize that a lack of sleep is a primary cause of stress which can be easily addressed. Children in this heavy growth period need 8-10 hours minimum of sleep a night.
Tip: Judge what time children need to be up in the morning and work backwards from that time to determine bedtime.

Communication: Communication with parents is vital to help children unwind and decompress from their day, but often adults make the mistake of “peppering” kids with questions, which can cause frustration and lead to additional stress.
Tip: Open the lines of communication by phrasing questions as statements, i.e. “I remember you had a test today” not “how did your test go?” Create a dialogue by discussing how your day went as well.

Time Management: Parents should teach children how to prioritize and set appropriate examples on how to juggle workload and activities. Traditionally children come home, decompress, have some playtime prior to dinner and then do work, but with demands and after school activities this method is not always efficient. If there is no time due to activities, children are overstretched and activities need to be re-prioritized.
Tip: Establish a time and place for children to do work. Make this allocated area “their place.” Providing a small desk and necessary tools helps children become more efficient.

Giveaway: 2 lucky Momfiles readers will win 2 products each from the Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Stress Control® line.

  5. I had a bad experience with Neutrogena when I was a teen. However, I hear they've reformulated their products and I'd be down to try the Power Cream facial wash.
