Resist the temptation. Do not, I repeat, do NOT pop that pimple. Acne is like a time bomb- one wrong move and your face will not look the way you wanted it to be. Proper care is important, and a huge part of this routine is the facial wash, toner, and other significant treatment(s) needed. Proactiv Solution’s Combination Therapy should be the preferred treatment for acne! Why, you may ask? Well before we get to that, we should first understand how acne forms, as well as the myths surrounding acne treatments.


Acne is typically the result of a hormone imbalance like, for example, high testosterone. This may cause the sebacious glands, which produce sebum in your pores, to go in overdrive, clogging the pore resulting in acne. Some acne can be a result of a dirty face clogging the pores on the skin, and if thats the case,  washing the face with the right facial wash usually fixes that.

Popping pimples is a good way to get rid of acne. Popping pimples damages the top layer of the skin and can result in scarring which can sometimes be permanent.

Sweating will clean out your pores. This is not true as well. If you aren't careful about showering immediately after getting sweaty, it can actually lead to an increase in breakouts. Sweat, comes from a different pore, so to sweat out blackheads and blemishes is out of the question. Exercise is great for your body, but it's not really going effect your skin.

You should scrub your skin every day. NO you should not. Your face (skin) needs to be treated gently to minimize damage from friction and irritation. Don't excessively rub/scrub your skin. This is especially true if get acne easily or if you have inflamed breakouts.

I have had a bad case of acne when I was in high school, and trust me when I say that almost all of both  local and foreign facial washes were tested on my face.. Some worked for a while, then the breakouts will just come back.. Then my mother bought me Proactiv, and she told me that she had a pretty good feeling that my acne will be treated. IT DID.

An acne blemish begins approximately 2-3 weeks before it appears on your skin's surface. So while it may seem like you get a pimple overnight, what you're actually seeing is the final stage of a much longer process. It starts in your sebaceous hair follicles – the tiny holes you know as pores. Deep within each follicle, your sebaceous glands are working to produce sebum, the oil that keeps your 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 at the tail-end of the acne formation process.

Proactive Solution prevents acne at the root cause and destroys the acne cycle:

1. The Proactiv Renewing Cleanser (Step 1) and the Proactiv Revitalizing Toner (Step 2) works by removing dead skin cells, ensuring that the pores don’t get clogged.
2. The Proactiv Revitalizing Toner (Step 2) removes excess oils too, eliminating food for bacteria. 
3. The Proactiv Renewing Cleanser (Step 1) and the Proactiv Repairing Treatment (Step 3) kills the bacteria and prevent proliferation.
4. The Free Refining Mask helps reduce the inflammation and swelling.

Why Proactiv is Superior to Other Treatment Methods

the tail end of the acne formation process. These treatments often leave scars or dark marks, and do nothing to prevent future breakouts.

Treatments are reactive, spot-treating pimples when these are visible and inflamed – already at the tail end of the acne formation process. These treatments often leave scars or dark marks, and do nothing to prevent future breakouts.
Proactiv Solution Vs. Overnight Spot Treatments. Spot treatment is the most commonly used method of treating acne because these are cheap, easy to apply, and more often than not promising miracle cure overnight. These products mostly contain high concentration benzoyl peroxide at 5% or 10% which kill the acne bacteria, but results to redness or irritation. These products may also cause hyper pigmentation (dark acne marks).

Proactiv Solution contains only 2.5% benzoyl peroxide, a safe and effective concentration which makes it OK for daily use and may be applied to the whole face. With Proactiv’s Advanced Microcrystal technology, eradicating bacteria is faster and gentler than common spot treatments.
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. Oral Drugs. When acne is severe, dermatologists sometimes prescribe oral drugs like isotretinoin or hormonal pills. There are studies that support that these methods are extremely effective for severe cases, but because of the nature of these drugs there are side effects that make it questionable if the benefits truly outweigh the cost. For example, there were reports in 2010 linking suicidal tendencies and psychotic behaviors among acne patients on isotretinoin. Hormonal pills, which are mainly indicated as a contraceptive sometimes causes water retention, weight gain, mood swings, and in the long run, even breast cancer.

Proactiv Solution does not have these side effects!

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.

Proactiv Solution Vs. Custom Derm Packs. The promise of acne’s miracle cure comes in different shapes, sizes, and prices. But do not always think that designer packs that costs Php 10,000 in expensive clinics are great! Expensive acne systems often do not have the backing of massive consumer trial from all over the world, and you end up being a guinea pig.

Proactiv Solution is the world’s number 1 anti-acne. Millions of customers worldwide can testify on how effective Proactiv is, including Hollywood superstars. Proactiv even dares you to try it risk free – you get your money back if you’re not happy.
