My teens go back to school on Monday and we are busy getting ourselves ready.   Clothes shopping has been challenging, the back to school shopping list is way too long, and teen acne struggles are making them worry about their first day of school complexion.  Teenage acne is something we all suffer through, no matter what generation you are!  I remember my own battle with teen acne and Clearasil® was always my go to brand to help with breakouts.  When they contacted me to discuss teen acne with my readers, I decided to share a few tips on how to minimize acne breakouts so they can be more confident, especially in the new school year.   My DIY bathroom organizer is easy to make and will help keep everything your teen needs, right at their fingertips!

My Family’s Solutions for Teen Acne Struggles

Most teens are going to get acne at some point, no matter how hard you fight it.  There are a few things they can do, however, to make breakouts less frequent. We have tried some things over the last few years that have worked for my own kid’s acne issues.  Here are a few you might want to try:

  • Eat a healthy diet: A healthy diet will help minimize breakouts.  Encourage them to limit fattening foods and drink plenty of water.  Make sure there are plenty of fresh fruits and veggies around and that they take a multivitamin.
  • Reduce stress: This is hard.  Teens have a TON of stress in their lives.  School, social interactions, work…they all roll into one giant thing for them to worry about.  Don’t over schedule them if possible so that they have enough down time to relax occasionally!
  • Make a skin care routine easy:  Teens are in a hurry so making sure to keep things handy and in stock is helpful.   My DIY bathroom organizer helps keep everything they need right at their fingertips!

Clearasil Rapid Action products work FAST to help your teen conquer their breakouts. They reduce redness and pimple size quickly* so that the stress induced blemish on their forehead is nowhere near as visible! (* clearly visible results in as little as 12 hours when using Clearasil Ultra® Rapid Action Daily Face Wash and clearly visible results in as little as 4 hours when using Clearasil Ultra® Rapid Action Vanishing Treatment Cream/Clearasil Ultra® Rapid Action Pads).  Check out the Infographic below for more information.

These products deposit maximum strength acne medication right into pores to fight pimples and breakouts. And it keeps working all day long. Using Clearasil daily as part of their skincare routine will make teen acne struggles much easier to handle.   And keeping it front and center on the bathroom counter will remind them to use it, even when they are in a hurry.

Easy DIY Bathroom Organizer

This DIY bathroom organizer is a great way to help your kid conquer their teen acne struggles.  Teens are in a hurry.  Keep their skincare products right at their fingertips so they don’t forget to use them. All you need for this project are the following items:

  • 2 clay pot bottoms (one large, one small).  You can find them at any major home supply store that has a gardening section.
  • 1 old candlestick or bud vase.  I found the bud vase at Goodwill for less than $1
  • Spray paint in your choice of colors.  I used brown and an antique white to match my bathroom
  • Epoxy or a hot glue gun to put the whole thing together.

Directions:  Just paint the clay pot bottoms and center piece with several coats of spray paint.  Let dry between each coat.  When they are the color you want and totally dry, glue the pieces together.  Then, just place on the counter and stack with your favorite Clearasil Rapid Action products and other skin care supplies!

  1. I love Clearasil and used it so much when I was a teen. It helped my skin clear out a lot. I'm so thankful I don't have that issue anymore!
  2. I have two 13 year old girls. We might have to get stock in Clearasil soon! Love the bathroom organizer suggestion. Thinking we might make that for our girls bathroom.
  3. That organizer is a cute idea! I'm always looking for washclothes when I'm washing my face and there are never any around me. Clearasil products have been around for years and are great for skin issues.
  4. I do love that organizer. It adds height and storage space without taking over the counter! Clearasil has always been my go to - even as an adult!
  5. Desiree Lopez says
    I have 2 teen daughters and they both use Clearasil. They are really nervous when they start to run low on a product so I'm sure to keep them stocked up. I really like your organizer idea too. Anything to help keep my girls organized is awesome!
  6. Hmm, this works well for your daughter? We are in need of something REALLY good for our teen boy, and I feel I've tried everything!
