We all want to have clear, smooth skin. But sometimes, acne gets in the way. Fortunately for those with acne-prone skin, there’s Proactiv solution to clear up our pimple problems.
The Proactiv Renewing Cleanser is the first step in the Proactiv acne treatment system that helps clear blemishes and prevents acne before it starts.
Proactiv Renewing Cleanser is an oil-free, soap-free medicated formula containing advanced micro crystals that gently exfoliate dead skin cells and other impurities so they can’t clog the pores. What makes the cleanser effective is the prescription-grade benzoyl peroxide that penetrates the pores, killing acne-causing bacteria and healing blemishes fast.
The milky white solution feels a bit grainy on the skin. Be careful to put only a small amount so as not to cause redness and irritation to your skin.
Benzoyl Peroxide is the key anti-bacterial agent in the Proactiv Renewing Cleanser that fights acne. With a 2.5% concentration, it has the powerful acne-fighting benefit of even higher concentrations, but without the harmful side-effects.
Other Ingredients include:
- Sodium Hyaluronate are the gel-like substances called Mucopolysaccharides which draws moisture to the skin.
- Polyethylene are the small round beads that gently remove old, dead cells.
- Anthemis Nobilis Flower Extract is a botanical extract known for its soothing properties.
Directions for Use
Use morning and night. Apply a small (dime-sized) amount to damp skin and gently massage for 1 to 2 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. Pat your skin dry.
If dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day. Use sunscreen when going outside.
Proactiv Renewing Cleanser versus Regular Cleanser or Soap
What we usually do when we have pimples is to scrub the skin hard, thinking that it will do the trick in getting rid of acne. Bad move, actually, as it only reduces surface oils and dead skin cells. We also use harsh products, those with alcohol and foamy surfactants (detergents), believing somehow that these will give us clear skin. However, these actions just irritate the skin and cause acne to worsen.
The good news is that it’s possible to gently unclog pores with fine polyethylene beads that gently relieve impacted pores without irritation.
Proactiv Renewing Cleanser is formulated without the harsh substances known as surfactants found in many other cleansers. These surfactants, which produce sudsy foam and lather, strip skin of its essential oils resulting in the skin barrier being damaged and vulnerable due to irritation.
The Renewing Cleanser as Part of the Proactiv Combination Therapy
The Renewing Cleanser help removes dead skin cells and impurities which can clog the pores. For best results, it should ideally be used with the other two products in the system, the Revitalizing Toner and Repairing Treatment.
The advanced micro crystal benzoyl peroxide in the Proactiv 3-Step System kills acne-causing bacteria while the glycolic acid and other exfoliants reduce excess oils and dead skin cells.
The Proactiv Renewing Cleanser is included in the Proactiv Solution 30-day and 60-day kits. Get your Proactiv Solution kits from the following outlets:
