Proactiv Solution: How Acne Form and How to Stop It!

My oily skin is very prone to acne that’s why, I see to it that I wash my face before I sleep at night but when I’m really tired, I couldn't do that anymore.  I am also harsh to my skin for not putting any sunscreen to protect my skin from the harmful rays of the sun before going out. Thus, breakouts come out once-in-a-while. However, still manage to prevent it to stay longer on my face and not to leave acne scars, somehow. Most of us are curious on how acne form, perhaps if we know its origin then we can already prevent and totally stop it. So pretties, let me share you how it is form and how to stop it. Kindly read on.

How Acne Forms?
Just to give you a better visualization on how it grows, kindly see image below.

In starts with the sebaceous hair follicles (the tiny holes known as pores), deep within each follicle, the sebaceous glands are working to produce sebum (the oil that keeps our skin moist and pliable). As your skin renews itself, the old cells die, mix with your skin's natural oils, and are sloughed off. Under normal circumstances, these cells are shed gradually, making room for fresh new skin.  Dead skin cells may block the pores, resulting to over-accumulation of oil underneath. Bacteria that live on the skin naturally begin to grow and multiply in this site, triggering an inflammatory response causing a red, angry pore that we see as pimple already.  And this acne formation actually has a 2-3 weeks process before it appears on our skin’s surface and notices it as a pimple.

Therefore, proper and religiously washing our face before bedtime is a must ‘coz it helps to remove the dead skin cells that blocks the pores. Of course, washing alone is not enough; somehow, you still need knight-in-a-shining-armour beauty products to help us do the necessary actions needed by our face skin. Proactiv is one of those products that could help us to stop acne formation and gives us a clear and youthful glowing skin. Well, they are the No. 1 Anti-Acne brand all over the world!

How to Stop It! 
Why Proactiv? Simply because, Proactiv Solution prevents acne at the root cause and destroys the acne cycle just by following the three steps.

Step 1. Proactiv Renewing Cleanser works by removing dead skin cells to ensure that the pores don’t get clogged. It also kills the bacteria and prevents proliferation.

Step 2. Proactiv Revitalizing Toner, the same with Proactiv Renewing Cleanser, works by removing dead skin cells, ensuring that the pores don’t get clogged and removes excess oil.

Step 3. Proactiv Repairing Treatment  also kills the bacteria and prevents proliferation.

Meanwhile, the FREE Refining Mask helps reduce the inflammation and swelling.

So, by having these Proactiv Solutions warriors you got all what it takes to stop acne and gives you a good skin condition. And to give you a comparison to the other treatment methods, aside from the money-back guarantee, Proactiv is really a lot better than the others: 

Proactiv Solution vs. Topical Antibiotics. Doctors need to supervise people using antibiotics because the long term use of antibiotics in general may cause bacterial resistance – making the person “immune” to the benefits of the active ingredient. Proactiv Solution will never have bacterial resistance because it does not contain an antibiotic, but rather an anti-microbial agent. It is safe for long term use for the treatment and prevention of acne. 

Proactiv Solution vs. Derm Clinic Injections. The Philippine Dermatological Society is campaigning for awareness among Filipinos to patronize only the services of highly qualified doctors, and not to be too trusting of attendants who may not have the proper training and experience to do this. This type of procedure is extremely painful, and when done by inexperienced hands, may cause scars for life. And because acne is a cyclical condition, recurring acne imposes recurring painful injections.
Proactiv Solution is gentle on you. With advanced micronized benzoyl peroxide and ingredients designed by Doctors Katie Rodan and Kathy Fields, your journey to clear skin is one that does not incite pain.

I hope that this post is a wakeup call to everyone who’s been harsh to their skin which I’m guilty of. Now, I’ve been using Proactiv Deep Cleansing Wash for weeks now before bedtime and see to it that I do it regularly and religiously. It’s really a must! I learned that cleaning our face and stopping the formation of bacteria can also prevent fine lines and wrinkles. Be good to your skin, pretties!

My skin is not yet that flawless, there are still minimal visible marks but as the days passed by, it’s getting better and better. Wait ‘til you see my before and after photos.

Happy Monday!

  1. Totally we should wash our face every morning and every night, and apply a cleanser, a toner and a treatment. But, I have to admit that I don't have patience enought to apply all three solutions. Most of time, I apply only a cleanser :)

  2. It's nice to see that Proactiv can be better than other acne products. A lot would benefit from this because it's a cheaper alternative.

  3. maybe i should give this a try. I'm sick and tired of my pimple scars :(

  4. I am lucky that I didn't have to deal with acne during my teen years until now. But this is a good product to try on some people dealing with acne.
