We have 4 daughters that play softball. And we can tell you, that the summer struggles with the fastpitch players face are REAL! Between the sweat, and dirt, and grit, and more sweat and dirt – plus helmets and facemasks and headbands and long hours on the field – acne is often a side affect of softball. Some girls struggle with it on their face, while others struggle with it on their shoulders, back, buttocks and even thighs from the clothing they have to wear.
In this house, we have spent a lot of money on facial products over the years. We have tried the high end, the Proactive Online, things from herbal shops and everything in between. While some worked, some didn’t and some made their faces drier which seemed to cause even more problems. But most are left sitting under our bathroom cabinet taking up space
Recently, in talking with another mom from our team she mentioned a product that has worked for her daughters. So, of course we had to try it.
The good news is, it wasn’t outrageously expensive, and could be found locally at Walgreens, CVS or Walmart.
Now before we go further – we have to say that this is NOT (And we repeat NOT) A PAID advertisement write up for a product! (We would legally have to tell you if it were) No one has paid us to write about this. We just simply know that this is a real issue, and having found something that worked for us, we want to share it!! Secondly, we are NOT, and let us repeat NOT skin care experts in the very least. So if you use this stuff and your face breaks out in some weird rash – don’t come to us…go to the company itself.
The first product is called CeraVe Foaming facial cleanser. There is a ton of products under the CeraVe line, but that is the first one we tried. And for whatever reason – we have no idea what sets it apart – it has worked wonders. Especially on those acne prone areas from sweat from a facemask or helmet. (they also make handy wipes that you can use in between games) Click Here for a coupon from the manufacturer.
The second product a little more costly, but was the Biore Deep pore charcoal cleanser. And this stuff is amazing! This works really well all over the body, and even good on the butt or shoulders where sweat builds up. Heck, use it as a body wash. lol! Charcoal is probably the number one factor in this stuff working so well. But my softball players sweat by it, and we have seen major improvement with the use of this stuff. You can find coupons for these products by searching the store where you purchase (Wally world, CVS, Walgreens, Kroger) or by searching online. We did not find one from the manufacturer.
And there you have it! Our first ever skin care endorsements for fastpitch softball players faces. Because when you find something that works, you have to share it!
