Growing up, I didn’t really suffer from acne. My skin was pretty clear for the most part- I would only get a pimple once every few months and it was never anything I couldn’t deal with. My siblings on the other hand had a more difficult time dealing with acne than I did.
My younger brother’s (15) acne started when he was around 13 appearing on his face (forehead, nose, chin) and upper back and hasn’t left since. He has tried several products to clear his acne, to no avail. He plays a lot of sports so sweating definitely does not help the problem. Having acne can definitely affect a teen’s self-esteem and confidence and I notice that while my brother is very outgoing, he tends to hide his acne problem behind his humor.
I can tell that is really struggling to get rid of his acne, so he was so excited when I told him that he would be testing out X Out this month. X Out is a line of acne products that works great for teens because it works on their schedule. We know that teens don’t always have time for a complex acne treatment so X Out fights zits in one simple step. This Wash-In treatment has prescription-grade acne medicine that goes deep into the pores and stays behind to help kill the break-out causing bacteria on contact (even after you wash it off).
We also know that not all teen schedules are the same, so X Out can be used in three different ways.
- Wash-In: Cleanse for 2 minutes, twice a day. Use X Out morning and night- wash-in and rinse off.
- Acne Spot Treatment: Fit acne while you sleep. Dab X Out on zits before going to bed.
- Mask: For an even deeper cleaning, leave it on for 10 minutes and then rinse it off.
There’s nothing like an acne treatment that works on your schedule, so you don’t have to ruin your plans to fight acne. Before, my brother’s nightly routine was simple- he would wash his face with a cleanser and moisturizer duo. Now, it’s even simpler with X Out. He’s been using X Out for about a week and half now and can’t wait to show off the results when the trial is over. If you have a teen fighting acne, be sure to continue reading over the next month when we show off my brother’s results so you can see the proof.
