My Proactiv Journey - Day 1

Let me preface this post by saying that I normally would never post a bare-faced pic, but I can't really share my journey with you without photographic evidence so please don't judge me too harshly.


As you can see, I have the very definition of what they call problem skin. It's super oily which tends to lead to acne, which in turn leads to hyperpigmentation aka dark marks from acne scarring. As a teenager, I had perfect combination skin. Never broke out, invisible pores, not a mark in sight. Oh how I miss those days! I hit my mid twenties and all of a sudden I got hit with all of these issues and because I never had to deal with them before, I had no clue what to do. For years I just stuck with Cetaphil because it was working pretty well, but lately even that's not working.

I, like everyone else have watched commercial after commercial advertising Proactiv and have always been more than a little skeptical. I never believe celebrities advertising products because I don't believe they actually use them. Add that to the fact that the personal reviews I've heard have been mixed and you can understand why, despite my problematic skin I've shied away from trying it. But, as I said before I'm desperate so here goes.

Today is Day 1 of my journey. I've picked up the full arsenal of Proactiv products: The 3-Step Cleanse, Tone & Repair kit to get rid of my acne and prevent any new breakouts and the Dark Spot Corrector to get rid of the spots I already have. Join me on my journey and keep your fingers, toes and eyes crossed for me that it works. Here's hoping!

Have you tried Proactiv yet? What have your results been?
