Proactiv is a topical acne treatment that works on the surface of your skin to fight existing acne in addition to helping prevent new pimples from forming. The Proactiv system consists of only 3 easy steps which helps to control the acne cycle before breakouts occur.
Step 1: Renewing Cleanser
The Renewing Cleanser is an oil-free, soap-free exfoliating solution which uses tiny round beads to gently remove impurities, excess oil, and dead skin cells to help prevent clogged pores. After clearing away the oil and dead skin cells, it uses prescription-grade medicine to attack acne-causing bacteria which would have normally been trapped within your pores.
Step 2: Revitalizing Toner
The Revitalizing Toner is an alcohol-free solution which refines and purifies pores leaving the skin feeling clean and refreshed. It contains glycolic acid which exfoliates dead skin cells to help keep pores unplugged and features a botanical-rich formula which soothes and hydrates acne-prone skin.
Step 3: Repairing Treatment
The Repairing Treatment is an oil-free lotion-like formula. It continues to the process by killing acne-causing bacteria within the pores while soothing and moisturizing your skin.
Bonus: Refining Mask
The Refining Mask is probably my favorite of the system. The Refining Mask works wonders on spot pimples. Its sulfur formula works to absorb excess skin oil from deep within your pores where pimples start to occur. It promotes healing and can greatly reduce the size of a blemish (and even eliminate it altogether).
