How often should I use Proactiv+?

When using Proactiv+ the most important thing to remember is that consistency is key for the best results. You'll find that you'll notice a much bigger change in your skin if you follow all 3 steps of our Core System both in the morning and at night before you go to bed. By using Proactiv+ regularly, the spot-fighting ingredients can work to fight spots and prevent future breakouts.


How does it work? 

Proactiv+ has been developed by dermatology doctors and contains spot-fighting ingredients as well as our exclusive Smart Target Technology.

The ingredients we use are key to how our products work. For us, it's absolutely crucial to use high quality ingredients in exactly the right way. There are three ingredients that are at the heart of Proactiv+:

Salicylic Acid: this ingredient is important to our products because it helps to remove dead skin cells, which can lead to clogged pores.

+ Glycolic Acid: like salicylic acid, glycolic acid is renowned for its exfoliating properties. It helps to loosen dead skins cells and make your face appear more radiant.  

+ Sulphur: sulphur is amazing at removing excess oil, treating blemishes and preventing new ones. It also helps to calm and cool any redness.

As well as our ingredients, our Smart Target Technology is also one of the reasons our products work so well. We've spent years researching and developing our formulas and our Smart Target Technology works to target your pores directly. Because our Smart Target Technology targets your pores, it means that more of the key ingredients can be delivered into your pores to fight spots where they develop.


When will I see results?

Everyone is different: If you've read our success stories or watched our celebrity reviews, you will know that every skin story is different. And because everyone's skin is different, when you first see results can vary. For some, you might see a change in your skin in the first few days and for others, it may take a few weeks.

Consistent use is key: The important thing to remember is that Proactiv+ is scientifically proven to clear skin and to help prevent future breakouts. However, it does need some time to get to work and the more consistently you use all 3 steps, the sooner you are likely to realise results. Everyone wants to achieve fast results and get rid of spots quickly, so it can be disheartening when you don't see a dramatic change in the first few days.

Proactiv+ needs time to catch up with your skin: When a spot appears, it has actually been building underneath the skin for around 2 weeks. Because of this, your new Proactiv+ skincare routine needs a little bit of time to catch up with your skin and to prevent future breakouts. That's why we always recommend that you use our products consistently, and be patient when you're looking for results. It may take a little more time, 70% of our customers have noticed that their skin is clearer after 4 weeks of consistent use, with some seeing results even sooner.

Extra breakouts in the first few weeks is normal: Once you've started using our three-step skincare regime, you may notice that you get a few extra spots. This is completely normal, and usually happens when Proactiv+ is working on clearing out your pores. There's no need to worry, as this is only temporary and is part of the process. Keep using your Proactiv+ kit every day, in the morning and at night, and your skin will start to become clear, radiant and beautiful.

With over 20 million Proactiv customers worldwide, our products transform the skin and confidence of people everyday. Clear skin starts with you, so take the first steps on your journey towards clearer skin today.
