Acne can cause emotional distress and lead to scarring of the skin.

The good news is that effective treatments are available — and the earlier treatment is started, the lower your risk of lasting physical and emotional damage.

Proactive Reviews – The 3 Step Solution

Thanks to the efforts of some popular celebrities and an aggressive advertising campaign, Proactiv Solution is a familiar name to the majority of the public. The 60-day free trial makes it even more appealing to anyone who has tried other treatments that turned out to be a waste of time and money. While the company that makes Proactiv Solution is confident in promoting their product, is it really the right product to treat your acne?

How Proactiv Solutions Works

Like many other acne treatment products, Proactive Solution contains salicylic acid. This ingredient is used to fight acne as well as reduce the appearance of existing scars. Additional ingredients include glycolic acid, witch hazel, aloe and others used for hydration.

There are currently three different regimens available from Proactive including the basic 3-step program, Proactive Plus Deluxe and Proactiv Plus for Teens. Each of these systems comes with a cleanser that exfoliates dead skin cells, along with toner and repairing cream. The “Plus” in the Deluxe kit is an oil-free moisturizer that is SPF 15 to protect skin from exposure to sunlight and a daily oil control lotion for absorbing excess oil. The “Plus” in the Teen kit is a deep cleansing wash for the body and an advanced blemish treatment to heal pimples on the spot.

In addition to these kits, various products from Proactiv are also available for sale separately. One of the more popular items is the 6% benzoyl peroxide spot treatment.

Many acne treatments are harsh on skin and can irritate it or cause more problems instead of helping to eliminate it. The ingredients used in Proactiv are gentle enough on skin so that most people can use it without irritation. The solution contains no artificial colors or parabens that can cause irritation in skin.

A 2.5% concentration of benzoyl peroxide is used in the Proactiv cleanser, which is a relatively non-harsh formulation. For those with sensitive skin, the combination of benzoyl peroxide with the other ingredients (witch hazel, glycolic acid) may prove to be too drying.

The Proactive toner is made in an alcohol-free formula with botanical moisturizers to deep clean without drying. Follow the use of the toner with the moisturizer at night for additional moisturizing and use your regular moisturizer during the day.

The Company that Makes Proactive

One of the most important aspects of any treatment is the reputation of the company that manufactures it. Proactive is made by a reputable company that follows through on its promises and its guarantees. If you are one of the people with a more severe case of acne that Proactive doesn’t cure, you can count on the company providing you with a refund in a timely manner.
