Proactiv+ 3 Step System

1. What do each of the three steps in the Proactiv+ System do? 1 found this answer useful
Below is an overview that explains each of the three steps. The three steps work synergistically, each building from the previous step, to address the complex condition of breakouts and other blemish-prone skin issues. Acne is not curable, so continued daily use of each of the three steps is important to prevent future breakouts.

Step One: Skin Smoothing Exfoliator
With gentle exfoliating beads, glycolic acid and micro-crystal benzoyl peroxide, this creamy exfoliating wash deep cleans, tones and starts fighting blemishes while leaving skin soft and hydrated.

Step Two: Pore Targeting Solution
The name says it all. Proactiv+ is the only blemish control system with Smart Target™ technology. This breakthrough technology delivers more blemish-fighting benzoyl peroxide directly into the pore, where breakouts start, to target the blemish at its source on contact and disrupt the process before new pimples start to form. With more blemish-fighting ingredient in the pore and away from the skin's surface, Proactiv+ fights breakouts more effectively and keeps blemishes at bay longer.

Step Three: Complexion Perfecting Hydrator
This luxurious, velvety, paraben-free formula uses a gentle yet powerful combination of salicylic acid, prebiotics, omegas, Kojic and glycolic acids to help clear blemishes by unclogging pores as it nourishes, moisturises, soothes and brightens skin. The Hydrator helps to reduce the appearance of pores, relieve redness, irritation and oily shine and helps minimise the appearance post-acne dark marks.

3. How can Proactiv+ clear my breakouts? 1 found this answer useful
The secret to eliminating blemishes and solving problem skin starts deep in the pore, where the blemish process starts and ends. Proactiv+ helps to prevent breakouts by disrupting this process.

With Proactiv+, the three steps work synergistically to (1) remove excess dead skin and oil to unclog pores; (2) target the blemish at its source, inside pores with benzoyl peroxide; and (3) keep pores clear and looking visibly smaller with salicylic acid, while advanced skincare ingredients address the most common problems of blemish-prone skin such as dryness and irritation, uneven skin tone, excess oil and shine, redness and blotchiness, large-looking pores and a dull complexion.

Because breakouts are continuously forming silently under the skin in blemish-prone individuals, we recommend that the three steps in Proactiv+ are used daily over the entire face to stop the new blemishes from forming. Within days to just a few weeks, depending on the severity, your blemishes will start to clear, the appearance of post-acne marks will improve and skin will look clear, healthy and radiant.
