Since the age of 14 I've had to deal with breakouts. It started with little bumps on my forehead and I remember how much I hated them. The beginning of last year my skin turned for the worse, my skin was constantly breaking out and I started having painful breakouts that developed under the skin or in clusters on my cheeks.  The blackheads moved to my cheeks (parts near my nose), chin and forehead. It honestly felt like every morning I would wake up to a new friend on my face and no matter what I did nothing seemed to help as much as I would like.

Then a few months ago I was contacted by Proactiv+ to work with them on achieving clear skin with their 3 step system and of course I jumped at the chance for two reasons,
1. My skin duh
2. Ever seen the tv ads and thought yeah sure thats how it got so clear? That was the other reason.

Proactiv 3 Step Skincare - Update 2

We are now going into month 2 in using proactiv+'s 3 Step Skin care and I honestly don't know what I'd do without it. I still get the odd blemish but my skin has improved so much! Last month we had our second meeting with Proactiv at London's Duck & Dry for a pamper afternoon and honestly the timing couldn't have been better. While we all got to have a relaxed afternoon we all had a one on one with Laura (Proactiv's Dermatologist) again to discus our skin. 

Just 2 months in and my skin is better than ever. The breakouts around my jaw line haven't come back since starting Proactiv+ which I'm pleased with because they used to be so painful and made me feel very insecure with myself. 

"I honestly can't wait to see what it will be like in a months time!"

Two Skincare Products I Can't Stop Using

I have suffered badly with breakouts over past few years, and really badly this year. My problem areas are blackheads around my nose and breakouts on my cheeks. To help fight back I'm currently using the Proactiv+ 3 Step Clear Skin System, along with the Re-Texturising Toner and Mark Fading Pads. 

Below I'm going to talk about my two favourite products from the Proactiv+ collection which have really helped me through my skincare journey:

  • Mark Fading PadsNow I'll be the first to admit I didn't think I actually needed these, but oh wow was I wrong! They really help to clear the skin up. I used these every day for 5-7 days consecutively and found my skin looked great after the 4th day.

For me, using these feel like a mini facial peel and my skin looks and feels 10x better, so if you’re wanting a quick fix to gorgeous skin then definitely check them out.

  • Skin Purifying Mask - I've loved this product long before I started using the Proactiv+ 3-Step System. I found it worked well with my skin, I use this as a blemish treatment and focus on my problem areas such a my nose, chin and cheeks.

How Much  Did Proactiv+ Change My Skin? The Before & The After!

Today’s piece is the final instalment of my Proactiv+ better skin journey. I have been using Proactiv+ for 6 months now and my skin is probably the best it has looked in a very long time! My main skin problems in the last few years have been blackheads and blemishes. When Proactiv+ reached out to me, my skin was probably the worst it had been in a long time, so I was super pumped to try something that could help my skin. 

After 3 weeks I noticed my skin becoming clearer but the next day (typically this always happens when I say out loud “my skin is good”), my skin purged like crazy and I had breakouts to deal with again. I’m told this is normal as it's a new skincare routine and your skin is clearing out pre-existing dirt and debris that's been trapped under the skin's surface.

"Fastforward and it's now been 6 months since I started using Proactiv+ and I can honestly say wow! It honestly is amazing. I have never found a skincare product to work so amazingly well with my skin."

Honestly, hand on my heart my skin is the best its been in years. I feel so much more comfortable in my skin now. I can easily pop to the shops, go out in public and even go to work with no makeup on and I am 100% happy with my skin. I sit there and kick myself thinking ‘why didn't I use Proactiv+ sooner?’ Checkout my before & after photos and see for yourself!
