Proactiv Acne and Blemish Cleaners
Oil is the main cause of acne and comes in the form of 'sebum' on the skin. It carries dead skin cells to the surface of your skin and ends up clogging your pores. The oil buildup has nowhere to go and remains under the pore, causing your skin to bulge. If left unchecked, these blockages can incubate bacteria, cause infections, and exacerbate the swelling. Proactiv acne skincare products help not only to prevent oil from accumulating but also fight already accumulated oil to reduce blemishes. As a popular brand in America, its two decades of experience have helped people overcome their acne woes thanks to an effective combination of moisturisers, cleansers, and other products.Acne Cleansers
To battle the oil menace, Proactiv cream cleansers offer a daily treatment for oil control and acne reduction. The three-step kit consists of a skin smoothing exfoliator mixture to scour away the dead skin that clog pores; a pore targeting solution to clean out the pores; and a complexion perfecting hydrator to finish off the treatment. The products contain salicylic acid, which is a potent substance that can break down dead skin cells.Scarring Cleansers
When acne subsides, it often leaves discolouration on certain spots on your skin. Using the specialised Proactive scarring cleanser to blend the imperfections with your natural skin tone is an excellent way to clear up your face. Cleansing kits that contain benzoyl peroxide target the source of the blemishes by eradicating the bacteria that thrive in your blocked pores but can cause skin to dry and peel. This is why the third step in Proactiv kits put an emphasis on moisturisation to counteract the drying effects of the antibacterial topical ingredients of the previous steps.Buying Separately
While Proactiv kits always come in a set of three, you are always free to purchase only one of the elements of the kit if it’s the only one you need. For instance, if your acne has faded thanks to the treatment, but you still want the benefits of the renewing cleanser, just buy the step 1 bottle to save money. If you need only the moisturising element, then get the step 3 repairing treatment.
