4 Steps to Clear Skin

Proactiv + product review

Problem skin can be an issue for many people even beyond their teen years. Quite often blemishes and problem skin can be due to not caring for your skin properly and using the right products for your skin type. A basic skin care routine is a must, especially for anyone that can be prone to congested skin. Enter the 4 essential steps to improve skin clarity, outlined below.

 

 

Step 1: Cleanse

Cleansing morning and night rids the skin of excess oil, dirt and other impurities. Proactiv’s Skin Smoothing Exfoliator contains 2.5% micro-crystal benzoyl peroxide and gently exfoliates the skin for a deeper clean. This product is perfect for giving the skin a really good clean without being too harsh.

 

Step 2: Treatment

Post cleansing, use a spot treatment like the Proactive + Clear Blemish Relief. This invisible spot treatment contains micro-crystal benzoyl peroxide (5%) to attack problem pimples. It’s designed to unclog pores and is specially formulated to help absorb excess oil and clear blemishes.

 

Step 3: Moisturise

During the day opt for a moisturiser with SPF like the Proactiv + Oil Free Moisture with SPF 15. It’s nice and lightweight and is specially designed to keep blemish prone skin healthy and hydrated whilst protecting skin from the sun. For night the skin needs something slightly richer and free from SPF. The Proactiv + Complexion Perfecting Hydrator hydrates whilst delivering blemish fighting ingredients and nutrients deep into the pores, resulting in a clearer and more radiant complexion.

 

Step 4: Mask

A mask should be used 1 – 3 times per week. The Proactiv +Skin Purifying Mask contains sulphur to help clean pores and prevent new breakouts. It works to absorb excess oil, leaving skin soothed and hydrated. I usually use this twice a week and it leaves my skin feeling so clean and clear. This can also be used as a rapid response overnight spot treatment to clear emerging breakouts.

    I’m so lazy with my skin, I need to start cleansing twice a day! Usually I only do it at night to get off my makeup. The Skin Purifying mask sounds amazing x

    I’ve only tried proactive once when I was in high school and unfortunately it made me break out more! I have heard that it works for some and does that to others. =(

      Ah that’s such a shame! I guess it depends on your skin type.
