Say Goodbye to Adult Acne: Proacitv Plus Review
“I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence-Central for Proacitv+. I received samples of Proactiv+ to facilitate my review and a thank you item for participating”
We all went through those awkward teenage years when puberty and hormones plastered our faces with acne. I remember a short period of time when my acne got so severe that I would actually refuse to go to school. Those were the days that I greatly looked forward to being an adult and having flawless porcelain skin. Little did I know that acne would haunt me many times throughout my adulthood, never fully going away. All three of my pregnancies resulted in horrific acne and dry skin through the entire nine months, nothing I did could ever clear it up. After welcoming my third baby girl in late July, much of that awful pregnancy acne cleared up, but my biggest problem now was finding time and being consistent when it came to caring for my skin. Three kids, a new baby, working full time on the blog and everything else life throws my way… my head hits the pillow at the end of the day. All of these different skin care products want you to jump through loops and wash your face three times a day. I barely have time to sneak a kid free bathroom break, let alone enough time to wash my face multiple times a day. I just want something that is simple and will get the job done.
Dealing with acne as an adult is pretty tough on my self esteem and some days I would rather not leave the house. The summer months can be especially hard because we spend a lot of time in the water, where concealer and makeup runs off your skin. I find that I am extremely self conscious during those times and frustrated that this is something that still affects my life. Everyone has seen the Proactiv commercials on television, I remember a few friends using it when I was a teenager. Seeing the commercials and reading about it on magazines… it just seemed too goo to be true! My sisters use some acne treatment stuff that cost a pretty penny that they swear by, so I just assumed anything that is going to work well comes with a hefty price tag. When I was given the opportunity to try out the all new Proactiv Plus, I could not wait to start using it and see what all the hype was about. The Proactiv Plus system provides enhanced hydration, skin smoothing and mark reduction as well as an overall improvement in texture, tone, pore appearance and brightness in one elegant system. It also helps fight breakouts and makes your skin look and feel healthier through a range of skincare ingredients.
There are three steps in the core system:
- Step 1: Skin Smoothing Exfoliator
- Step 2: Pore Targeting Treatment
- Step 3: Complexion perfecting Hydrator
- The“plus” in Proactiv Plus means “more” with more advanced skin care benefits built in to give you a more luminous complexion.
I can honestly tell you that after using these products over the past month, I have seen a significant difference in my complexion. Just last week I slacked a bit and didn’t use Proactiv Plus for a few days and had a few breakouts, which started clearing up once I got back into my routine. What I love about these products is that you don’t need to use very much of the products to clean and moisturize your face, which means it’s going to last you quite some time! The first week was very rough on my skin because I just jumped right into using it when I had not used more than a splash of water to clean my face. This is defiantly something you need to work your way into, for sensitive skin like mine I would recommend using it every other day for the first week. After that week passed my face started to adjust to the new face cleaning ritual and it quickly became second nature to use Proactiv Plus. Once I started noticing a difference in my skin I felt so much more confident. I started putting on less concealer and foundation and going with a more natural look. My face feels so healthy and clean, even during these cold winter months, I finally have my confidence back. Being a mom of three is a lot of work and the last thing I want to worry about is a face full of acne. If you are an adult dealing with that dreaded adult acne then I highly suggest you try Proactiv Plus for yourself.
