Having a Healthy Essentials Transition Back to School

Healthy Essentials Disclosure
Wow, have your kids gone back to school yet? I would imagine with Labor Day past everyone is back to school. My boys have been back for a week and my sophomore is already sick with his first cold. I guess that’s what we get for being so shut in all summer. I teamed up with The Motherhood and Johnson & Johnson to help families get the school year started off on the right, healthy note!
Healthy Essentials
The week before school started I started cutting back the summer hours the boys were staying up til. Bedtimes and adhering to them during the school week is important to me. Secondarily it’s important to the boys and their success at school. A tired kid has a hard time learning.

I want my boys to learn to take care of themselves by getting enough rest, eating healthy (or at least thinking about eating healthy), and taking care of their bodies and minds.
Healthy Essentials at Home
At bedtime Buddy uses the Clean and Clear every night. He’s 15 and going through all those fun hormonal changes. Mornings before school he’s using the Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash. Even if he’s still breaking out because of hormones, at least his skin will be taken care of. Clean & Clear Advantage has been shown to reduce pimples in just four hours. The medication starts to clear pimples immediately with maximum strength 2% Salicylic acid. They are reduced in size, swelling and redness, and the formula won’t over-dry skin. I need to get Buddy using the Wash at bedtime before he using the acne cream. Revolutionary MicroClear® technology pushes medicine deep into pores to fight both the acne you see, and the acne that’s forming below the surface.
RoC Deep Wrinkle Night Cream
Now, on the other end of the spectrum is occasionally taking care of myself. A couple of weeks ago I started using the RoC Deep Wrinkle Night Cream. I’m always skeptical about these products, but yes, I have what I call sleep lines that are disappearing! The ones that are back along my jaw line have pretty much become unnoticeable. I have two others closer to my chin that are deeper, but I’m seeing improvement there as well. I’m hoping the biggest change will be the wrinkles on my forehead. They drive me insane. I see a difference, but they’re deep so will take longer to see a change. It contains an exclusive combination of pure Retinol and an essential mineral complex that is clinically shown to visibly reduce even deep wrinkles after 12 weeks’ use.

How is your family starting the school year off on a healthy note?

We're starting off the school year on a healthy note by taking our vitamins. Even so, the kids have already gotten their first colds. My daughter even missed a day of school.

Ninja Wifey said...

We are sending organic snacks and healthy options.

HilLesha O'Nan said...

Most acne washes usually don't work for my skin, but I've been loving the Neutrogena facial wash so far. I also love the grapefruit smell!

Melanie said...

We are a few weeks into school, and two of my children have already come down with something. I guess the silver lining is their immune systems are going to be solid by the end of the year!

Ms D said...

we are trying to go to bed earlier. Rest is big on our list! My kids are adjusting , but it is hard!

Jennifer H said...

By eating a quality breakfast in the mornings.

Sippy Cup Mom said...

I love the Neutrogena in the morning. It definitely wakes me up!

Kathleen said...

I need some of that deep wrinkle night cream for sure. The years are not being kind to my forehead.

Lisa said...

We started taking a multivitamin here!

valmg said...

Noone is sick here right now fortunately. We love Listerine, nice coupons!

Lucero De La Tierra said...

We have spent the last six weeks sick. UGH! No matter how much we clean, air out, rest and eat well we are on to sickness number three. Flu, bronchitis and now another cold, it sucks.

Kimberly Grabinski said...

We are starting off healthy by drinking more water, making sure we wash our hands, and eat more veggies.

SensiblySara said...

I need to get some Clean & Clear Advantage!

We started a back to school routine a few weeks before school started. My boys aren't quite ready for face washes, but I do think it's important to wash twice a day!

Shellie said...

I need the wrinkle cream! Thanks for the heads up on the coupons!

Notorious Spinks said...

This is a great box. I use many of these products to stay healthy as well.
