Is stress of homework, sports, or after school activity’s making you break out? I’m here to help solve all those tricky blackhead or pimples you may be struggling to hide. Here are some of the best products in my to help you look your best.

The first thing I recommend is the Clean & Clear morning Burst Facial Scrub. It’s a great product to help wake you up on those slow mornings. The scrub isn’t rough on your face, it exfoliates your skin while also waking you up. The smell is oranges and grapefruit mixed into a wonderful scent. You can purchase it about anywhere. Bartells, Target, and most grocery stores carry it. The price is fairly low, under $15.00 depending on where you buy it from.

Next is the Clean & Clear Once Triple Clear Bubble Foam Cleanser. This product helps to take out your blackheads and prevent them from coming back. It also leaves you with a very refreshed feeling after rinsing it off. You can use this product any time of the day, I prefer to use it right before bed. If you want to test this cleanser out go to Bartells, Target or any grocery store near you. It is around the same price as the burning burst scrub, about $15.00.

For a moisturizer my favorite product is Nars Skin Multi-Action Hydrating Toner Lotion. It comes in a pump bottle that you then spray onto a cloth or whatever item you want to spray it on to. Next you wipe it all around your face and down onto your neck. It helps to let your actual moisturizer to sink in and really hydrate your skin. This helps a lot during the winter time and especially if you have been using harsh products on your face. To pair with this I like the Nars Skin Luminous Moisture Cream. After you have washed your face and wiped it next you will apply this cream. It leaves your skin feeling clean, refreshed, and smooth. By the next morning you will see an improvement of your skin. It will leave it glowing and looking radiant. These two products are more on the expensive side, the hydrator is $32.00, and the cream is $64.00. Both can be found at Nordstrom in the Nars makeup area.

If you are wanting to have a little fun and treat yourself with a face mask try the Freeman Renewing Peel-Off Gel Mask. It is cucumber scented, making you feel at a spa within your own home. The mask begins to harder after being in contact with your face. After 15-20 minutes you can peel it off. Your skin looks soft and flawless; it makes your pores appear smaller too. After doing the face mask don’t forget to apply moisturizer for the best results. The price is about $7.00. You find find this at Albertsons, Bartells or Target.

Finally, a little secret to get those stubborn pimples or blackheads out. It is a tool called Professional Blackhead Remover, by Utopia Care. On side is for small blackheads while the other is for pimples. You lightly set the tool where the blemish is and then press down. You will be amazed at the results. You can find this tool on Amazon for $6.00.
