Being a teen diva isn't all fun and glamour.
Especially not when you are battling acne flare ups.
Although my daughter, thankfully, doesn't suffer from extreme acne, she does get her share of trouble, especially during certain times of the month.
Despite that Mom doesn't consider her acne issues to be extreme, there is no telling a teen diva that each pimple isn't a catastrophe. I still remember those days from my youth and treat her "end of the world" concerns with sensitivity.
Fortunately, she has always been very good about being conscientious about what she eats and, as an athlete, is excellent about keeping herself hydrated. Likely a good part of why her acne is not extreme. All the same, every girls loves to be pampered and pamper herself, so I am happy to help her find products to assist in her battle against teenage acne.
Whether her body chemistry is changing, or if certain products lose their effectiveness after so much use, her current stores are reportedly not performing as they once did, as well as running low. I am happy to make a trip to Target with her, to find some new options and replenish her acne arsenal.
While this should be a quick trip, between the two of us, we tend to become easily distracted at Target. They certainly have our number! My daughter is immediately taken in by a display a purse with bling attitude.
As for myself, I go off on a tangent of holiday shopping for the nieces and nephews. I absolutely feel in love with this adorable reindeer outfit!
Finally, we are able to work out way over the the Health & Beauty section. The vast selection of acne fighting options here means we have much exploring to do! Seemingly, every acne solution known to man is represented, from basic washes, to astringents, to masks, facial scrubbers and specialized medications. With most at modest prices, I'm also pleased to see certain products on sale, some with on package coupons, as well a bonus packages, offering more product for the same price!
After much careful consideration, we chose Oxy Clinical Advanced Treatment Pads, a 3 month supply at a great price, as well as a special Blackhead Removing Scrub and Facial Cleansing Brush from Neutrogena for the diva to try. My daughter found the bold look of Oxy Advanced authoritative. "This one looks like it means business!". She is very much looking forward to testing her new products and sharing her results.
We found the Acne Solution section at Target impressive. With a wide variety of products, from the expected to the specialized, with much variety in brands, scents and appeal. With bonus packages, sales and on package coupons, if you have the seemingly mandatory time available to browse all of the other fun offerings at Target, both diva and I highly recommend the Target acne solutions center.
