Does Proactive Acne medication work?
So i'm a 13 year old girl who has acne and currently i'm using nuetrogena acne stress control stuff. but all my friends say proactive is great and you hear about it online and on tv so much.... Does it really work?
                      









Not Important.
Well I'm having the same problem.

Don't use proactive if you have a lot of acne.

Use a bar of Dove soap !

Morning, & night. Make sure you get sun & swim in the pool !

I promise if will help you out a lot.

Proactive isn't all it's cracked up to be.

It makes your skin either dry or oily.

Hope I helped !

Honestly, I didn't like it. It bleaches your pillows if you go to sleep with it on and it dries out your skin REALLY bad at the beginning, thus creating more acne, and the same thing happens when you stop except it creates a lot of extra oil so then causing more acne.

I actually have ordered, and own proactive. It didn't even help me at all and took FOREVER to do all the steps... I think it is a waste of time and money.
I have been using OXY pads for acne though, and that seems to be working wonders!
Hope this helped!

It does work, but you have to be consistent with it... use it 2x a day. It takes about 2 months to start working at it's best. It might not work for everyone, but it's worth a shot if nothing else has. Also, if your parents are okay with it, ask your doctor for an Acutane prescription. It got rid of my acne for years and I only break out occasionally now.

I have it and it works for me, but it depends on your skin. My cousin said it messed her skin up. Also, I heard that if you stop using it your skin gets worse...but I dunno.

I tried it and it didn't work for me at all. If anything, it made me break out more. I wouldn't waste the money if I was you.

My friend tried using it once, and she said it doesn't work on all skin types. I haven't tried it, I usually use stuff like Clearisil or Sea breeze. I had good results with those, though.

The results vary with everyone because everyone's acne is different on each skin. I used to use it back in high school and it did seem to work but my acne wasn't as bad as others.

I believe that Proactiv is good for mild acne but if you have severe acne that would need a prescription by doctor.

Since you're only 13 I think you're too young to go on powerful prescriptions so Proactiv might be OK to use but have in mind that depending on the severity of your acne it might or it might not work.

A big tip I can give you is try to control the oils on your face. Wash your face regularly and don't touch it, this causes more bacteria to get on your skin. Also, if you use makeup do not use oil base foundation because this will clog your pores and cause pimples.

Hope this helped. good luck!

i havent tried proactive
but
i know that three things together work fantastically
first cetaphil
next clindagel
and lastly epiduo
in that order
the last two are perscription strength and you need a doctors permission
the only thing is the price tag
without insurance and coupons they are like $550 altogether the latter two being the most expensive

YES! I Love proactive, it really, really does work. It is way better than all the other products out there becuase there is no guesswork with it. You simply follow the direction and you will have clear skin. With other products its hard to know what to use with what. Its expensive, but it works and its worth it to me.

I've never had acne, but I'm pretty sure there is no cure for it. I've heard from tons of adults that there isn't. I would just take care of my skin, make sure you moisturize and wear SPF daily

I used to use it a few years back, and it works, but when I ran out, my acne came back twice as bad. Now, your skin is different from my skin, but I use Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit scrub every night and every morning, and my acne has cleared up a lot. Just try something a little cheaper to see if that's all you need. If it doesn't work, then I would consider Proactive. Good luck!

depends on your skin

yes it does and it makes ur face feel amazing. i nvr really had ache and since i started using it i haven't seem any sign of acne so go buy some NOW!


Unsatisfied
yes, if you use it consistantly.

use it twice a day. if you get dryness, use an oil free moisturizer.


Cindycullen
depends on acne but most of the time it works.


HoldYourColor
Yes!! it does work!


kahlien05

Neutrogena always dries my face out. I love Noxema. It makes your face feel fresh, clean and it helps with break outs.

As far as Proactive goes, I know a few people who have tried it and it didn't work well with their skin. So to answer, I guess it depends on your skin type and its reaction to the treatment.

Good luck.
