I’ve never went to the derma. I had bad skin in high school (and some of college). Even my ex-boyfriend’s friends thought I wasn’t beautiful enough for him. (Jeez, those douchebags.) I never paid attention to my diet. Lastly, it is only recently that I really engage in a strict 8-hour sleep schedule every single day. The results: I suffered from mild acne for a long time.
Now in my early 20s, I can proudly say that acne is nothing but a thing of my past. I rarely get zits and even though some of the scars are still there, they can be easily concealed by a sheer film of BB Cream.
2012 is coming to an end and this 2013, I vow to love my skin more. In my job as a freelance writer, an Events and PR Consultant and an occasional teacher, it is important that I really take care of my skin. To make sure that acne never bothers me again, I’ve read a gazzillion sources about it and saved the lowdown for you:
1. First off, let it be known that acne happens to everyone. I don’t think anybody NEVER got a zit in his/ her entire life. Unless s/he died at 9. Some had it easy, an occasional zit on the forehead and some have it worse, like a farm on the cheeks.
2. Although acne is normal, it is also influenced by hormones, stress, diet, pollution, product misuse, regimen and genetics. So really, if your acne is bad, there’s a lot to blame for it.
3. This is how acne happens: sebum, or oil that comes out of your skin glands, combines with dead cells and clogs your pores. When the bacteria causing acne (P. Acnes bacteria) gets trapped inside these clogged pores, inflammation happens. If you are not careful enough, all the oil accumulation, swelling, clogging of pores and bacteria growth can keep going.
4. If you think your acne is already getting the better of you, it’s best to consult a dermatologist or try out products that are known to cure acne (especially). There are people who really cannot outgrow acne. Believe me, I’ve known people in their 40s who are still suffering from acne! God help them!
One of the products that I really trust in killing acne is PROACTIV. Proactive is dubbed as the #1 anti acne system in the world, with almost 15 million users globally. That means, Proactiv works on all skin types, on all climates. It is made up of 4 core products: facial wash, toner, moisturizer and the treatment. It’s very easy to use and once it becomes a part of your regimen, it’s like nothing at all. And all you have to do is say hello to clear skin! If you’re lucky, you might not even need the other stuff I needed to do this year just to maintain a fairly good skin: strict sleep, daily sunblock, night cream, BB Cream and mineral makeup.
What’s more, if you don’t get clear skin after religiously using their products, you can even get their money back. Visit their site and you’ll even get to see celebrities with their true-to-life horror stories on acne and how Proactiv helped them win the battle against everyone’s skin’s enemy.
Proactiv is very famous in USA but you don’t have to wait for smuggled goods to come to us because you can get it through special door-to-door delivery (hotlines 729 2222, 1-800-729-8888), through one of their mall kiosks (GF Glorietta, 2F Trinoma, 3F Robinsons Galleria and GF Marquee Mall) or even at Watsons.
