Upon knowing that I have already landed a job here in Makati, my friend Melai, an accountant who now works with a Swiss non-government organization, shared the urge to have a meet up with me because we have not seen each other for years due to geographical disparity.

She brought Bea, another accountant from Baguio, and we ended up walking around Ayala Triangle. At one point, we started talking about Proactiv which seems to be still new to the Philippine market but has proven its worth to be the world’s anti-acne brand in the US.

Bea knows the product very well, admitting the it is worth many meals but the results are worth the sacrifice. I was narrating how I share small Proactiv packages with my cousins who use and really appreciate the small products.

If you are still on your pursuit to look for the best anti-acne product because you hate the view of breakouts and blemishes on your face, I personally advise you to try Proactiv Solution 3- Step System which is now available at Watson and SM Department Stores nationwide.

After extensive research, Proactiv is able to come up with a set of solutions that treats acne safely and effectively. The solutions fight the source where a build-up of dead skin cells and bacteria clogs your pores.

Mild enough to use every day, Proactiv gently cleans and unplugs your pores and kills acne causing bacteria. The combination of medicines penetrates deep into your skin to destroy the bacteria and help reduce inflammation and heals the lesion. Your skin clears without the drying, peeling or chemical smell you may find in other products.

If you start trying the set, you will realize the above-mentioned initial effects.

The Proactiv Renewing Cleanser (Step 1) and Repairing Treatment (Step 3) contain finely-milled, prescription-grade benzoyl peroxide with soothing botanicals. Together these ingredients gently exfoliate your skin, unplug your pores and attack acne-causing bacteria. The Revitalizing Toner helps remove excess oils and dead skin cells to prevent future breakouts, and the Refining Mask helps reduce inflammation. When used together regularly, Proactiv not only eradicates pimples but also importantly prevent future breakouts unlike other brands in the market.

You can ask any dermatologist and you would get the same insight that benzoyl peroxide is a powerful ingredient that is effective against all kinds of acne (blackheads, whiteheads, and big red pimples). It is bactericidal, meaning it kills bacteria, rather than simply slowing down their growth. It also works very quickly improving acne as early as five days after starting treatment. It’s a great first line treatment but it’s also helpful to use in combination with antibiotics for severe cases.

On the other hand, please know that benzoyl peroxide may cause drying, peeling or redness if not delivered in the right amount (too strong concentrations) or surrounded by the right mix of ingredients.

Proactiv’s 2.5% benzoyl peroxide concentration is mild, yet powerful enough to kill acne causing bacteria. It is finely milled, with proprietary advanced microcrystals that deliver the medicine without irritating the skin. This benzoyl peroxide technology is unique to Proactiv.

And to provide you with a stronger arsenal to fight acne, Proactiv released a Limited Edition 60-Day Bundle Pack with upsized Refining Mask (2.5oz instead of the regular 1oz) and Free 50ml Proactiv Advanced Daily Oil Control.
