While we are starting back to school about a week later than the rest of the area, it’s still going to be hot in these parts. Heck, last fall we were rocking temps in the high 70’s and low 80’s into late October. One of the things I have learned about teen boys is that they need to feel confident that they smell good throughout the day. Body odor is a quick confidence killer and I’m thrilled to be partnering with AXE and CVS to bring you our tips on how to stay cool and confident throughout the school day no matter what kind of heat you are facing.
First, try to start off every day as prepared as you can be. This means spending some time the night before making sure all your homework is done, all your supplies are in one place and easy to grab, and maybe even planning out what you want to wear. Nothing gets a day off to a rocky start like rushing around and not being able to find what you need. Or worse, arriving at school and realizing you forgot something important.
Next, take a minute or two to calm and gather yourself. At Josh’s school, they tried a program where his class mediated for a few minutes before the hustle of the regular day began. They used a guided meditation app called Headspace, but there are many on the market that do everything from aid in visualization to providing white noise. Find one that helps you to get centered and ready for your day.
Josh has a pretty active day, right from the get-go. He has Physical Education first thing in the morning and then also has Cross Country practice each day after school. He needs something that is going to help him feel fresh and confident all throughout the day. That’s where AXE comes in! Josh starts building that confidence right from his morning shower by using AXE shower gel. He loves the scents and that he feels that it keeps him smelling good all day, even when his day starts off with PE!
Josh and I hit our local CVS to stock up on AXE shower products to start the school year off right. We picked up a variety of body washes and also The Axe Detailer Tool which is a dual-sided to both exfoliate and gently clean. The scrub side of the Detailer removes dead skin and debris from rough spots like elbows and heels. Soft mesh on the flipside lathers to clean sensitive areas. Then Josh can simply hang it to dry in the shower after getting clean.
For those hectic mornings, Josh loves that the AXE Sport Blast is a 2 in 1 product that can be used as a shampoo as well as body wash. His other favorites are the Apollo Body Wash which is a classically masculine fragrance with crisp notes of green fruits and fresh sage and the Phoenix Body Wash, a classic, fruity fragrance featuring lavender, geranium and citrus.
From 8/26 through 9/1, CVS has a buy one, get one 50% off offer on all AXE Personal Wash products.
This is the perfect time to stock up and put together a “confidence kit” for your son!
