Recent social media posts by Skin Basics Milk and Acne: Does Milk Cause Acne? (Hint: Yes!) | Clear Skin Forever Great article! 100% true! It effects my family all the time!!! Science shows there's a strong link between milk and acne. Avoiding dairy is one the most powerful things you can do to clear up your skin.
[10/13/13]   I get asked about Proactive a lot!!! Unfortunately for potential buyers they have fantastic marketing but have a product that is usually not effective. ~

Everyone wants to improve their formulations and Proactiv is no different. Unfortunately, they made a big mistake in reformulating their Pore Targeting Treatment. Let me explain:

Ingredients in Proactiv Plus Pore Targeting Treatment:

Active Ingredient(s): Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5%.
Inactive Ingredients: water, ethoxydiglycol, glycerin, prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond) oil, polysorbate 80, polysorbate 60, sorbitan stearate, carbomer, potassium hydroxide, disodium EDTA, fragrance.

The almond oil will keep the benzoyl peroxide on the surface of the skin, not allowing it to go down into the pore. If benzoyl peroxide is not allowed to go down into the pore, it cannot peel the inside of the pore which is essential to keep retention hyperkeratosis (the cause of acne) in check. It also cannot kill the acne bacteria inside the pore. Keeping the benzoyl peroxide on the surface of the skin is a big mistake. The oil basically renders this product ineffective. Oops.

Most of our clients have tried all the Proactiv products before they come to see us. Let us coach you to clear skin
