I really feel like I am the poster child for stress induced breakouts! You can see it on my face when I am feeling overwhelmed, stressed and just plain tired. There is a lot going on for me as a stay-at-home-working-mom! I am juggling housework, two small kids, a traveling husband, and a full-time job. Don’t get me wrong, I am so thankful and absolutely in love with this life, but that doesn’t mean I don’t go through some serious stressful times. Pile up the trips, doctor appointments, deadlines, and schedules and things {my skin included} are bound to get a little…crazy!

During these times of stress, I am almost always greeted by some new “friends” {aka: zits!}. The last thing I really want on my plate is battling adult acne, am I right? Sometimes its like Jr High all over again! I have always had acne prone skin that involves me scouring the aisles of Walmart looking for the magic solution. Unfortunately, I have always come up empty handed. I usually get stuck letting the breakouts run their course… but not anymore! I’m going to share with you my tips and tricks {and the ultimate acne butt kicker:  ZAPZYT } to beat stress induced acne once and for all.



1. Writing Out My To -Do List. This is so important for fighting breakouts especially when they are caused by stress! Clear your mind and do what I like to call a “brain dump”. Get everything you need to do out of your mind and onto some paper! It’ll make those tasks seem less daunting when you can SEE them all together.

2. What’s stressing me out? Sometimes it goes a little deeper than a measly to-do list. I really have to take the time to reflect and get to the bottom of my anxiety and stress. Sometimes it’s something silly like having a full calendar. Priorites! It is so important not to stretch yourself too thin. Don’t be afraid to say “no” and make your “yes!” really count.

3. Take Care of Your Skin! Once I can tackle what is going on in my head… I can fight the breakouts! ZAPZYT Acne Treatment Gel is the ultimate spot treatment acne fighter! It’s my favorite when it comes to shrinking breakouts and blemishes QUICK. It’s really easy to add the cleaner and scrub to your daily or weekly routine and stay on top of your clear skin!



I really do get so discouraged by breakouts as a 20-something year old! It’s so annoying and I feel like I’ve “done my time” already, ha! ZAPZYT doesn’t make you suffer through the “it gets worse before it gets better” stage but instead takes you right to CLEAR SKIN! There are a lot of spot treatments in the market today but a lot of them contain alcohol which further irritates the breakouts and dry out your skin! Which is the exact opposite of what you are needing! ZAPZYT is water based so you can get the full effect of the Benzoyl Peroxide and get rid of the suuuuper annoying breakouts, QUICK!

I’ve had a lot of luck adding ZAPZYT Treatment Gel to my evening skincare routine. ZAPZYT also has a great acne cleanser and scrub to add to the mix when you are suffering from particularly stubborn breakouts! I love to use the cleanser, applying the spot treatment and then continuing on with my favorite evening moisturizer. ZAPZYT is available at Wal-Mart so you don’t have to search high and low for your clear skin any longer!

Happy skin, happy you, right?!
XO, Jess
