There is a wide range of people out there that have to deal with massive breakouts of acne on a day to day basis and I used to be one of those people. However, once I discovered the ProActiv Solution system that all changed. I am now pretty much acne free, with the occasional pimple here and there which really is nothing compared to what I used to have to deal with.
ProActiv is the number one selling acne system in America and is endorsed by such celebrities as Jessica Simpson, Elle Macpherson and P.Diddy to name a few. It is an acne skin care system developed by two dermatologists to achieve clear skin and banish breakouts.
The ProActiv kit I get is the standard 3 step set. The first product is the "renewing cleanser." This cleanser gently exfoliates your skin which helps the active ingredient of benzoyl perozide penetrate deep into your pores. You usually only need a dime to nickel sized amount of this product. The second product is the "revitalizing toner." This toner is applied to the skin to soften and smooth while also removing pore-clogging dirt and grime. With this step it is recommended to take a cotton pad and drop 10 drops onto it, that is all the amount you need in order for it to spread throughout your whole face. Finally, the third step is the "repairing lotion." This lotion hydrates your skin and also penetrates your pores to stop the acne-causing bacteria at its source. For this final step, a dime sized amount of lotion is all that is needed.
When you purchase the three step kit you also receive a bonus refining mask. This can be used at night before you go to bed in two different ways. You can spread a good amount thorughout your whole face and let it sit and soak in for about 10 minutes, and then wash it off. Or if you just have one or two pimples that look like they will be popping up fairly soon you can dab a small amount on the area and let it sit over night. I have done this second option many times when I have felt a pimple coming on. On most occasions, when I wake up in the morning the pimple is gone and is no longer forming! That is definitely great news to wake up to, let me tell you!
I have had extreme luck with this product and I have been using it for probably the last four years now. When I run out and go without it for a few weeks I can definitely tell a difference in my skin, so I try to always pick up a new kit before I run out of my current one. While the kit is a little pricey, it usually lasts for 2-3 months and the money you pay is definitely worth the outcome you achieve with this product. So if you haven't tried Proactiv yet and you are sick of the over the counter medications that do not work, please try it! You won't regret it, I promise!
