I have some acne on my chin and a little above my lip. Does proactive actually work?

It's not the going that the pit cares about.
It's the coming.

i've never tried proactive.
anything that contains benzoyl peroxide works for me. try out some different medications and see which one works best for you.

It worked for me, but as soon as I got off it, my acne came back. Just use a face cloth + soap in the shower once a day.

Penises look much better than vaginas in my opinion. A vagina looks like an axe wound.

I followed the regimen a couple months ago, and it seriously worked! Before that I used proactive, didn't do anything.

Dear god, do NOT do this, it's probably the worst thing you could possibly do for your skin. I used to have a few issues with acne and stuff, while I was washing my face twice daily. I just stopped washing it with cleanser and it got way better. I figure its because the skin is able to maintain its natural oil balance, and oil is not always a BAD thing. Just DON'T use rubbing alcohol ever, it will strip your skin of natural oils and irritate sensitive skin.

proactive does take a while to kick in. for me it took about a week before i saw some real improvement. use proactive and a sacylic acid together. but the salycilic stuff first, then proactive. twice a day.
#19
you'll have give it time, it will be slow to take them away but if you it consistenly use it they won't come back.
#20
Ya, it works pretty good, I have it and used it a while back. But it makes ur face SOOOO dry, i had to stop using it. But I'd give it a try.

proactive works pretty good.
i lived with semi bad acne and pimples and what not for about a year, then when i was around 17 or so i started using proactive and my face cleared up. now im 19 and my skin is very good but i dont know if its because i grew up or because of the proactive. still get the odd pimple but over all very happy with proactive. ain't cheap mind you.

Proactive doesn't work.
I'm the same as I was when I was six years old
And oh my god I feel so damn old
I don't really feel anything

at first it'll burn the **** out of your skin, then your skin'll get used to it, then it should work pretty good for abit, then your skin will het too used to it and youll just start breaking out again, if you put more youll end up burning you skin badly. so yeah, itll take abit for it to work, then it'll work, for a bit, then it wont do ****, then you'll carefully decide to put more and your skin is just gonna flare up lile a tomato and then you'll throw it all in the garbage.


that's my story, and that's what i've heard from lots of other people too.


1- just try and eat as healthy as you can, for the sake of your health and the fact that something around 30% of you're body's unprocessed and processed waste is expelled from your skin. 2- wash your face whenever you feel it gets greasy or dirty, it probably will get dry, really dry, but be patient, it should regulate its moisture after awhile and after a really long while (wekas and weeks) it'll moisturize itself safely. if you want, you can use moisturizer, just make sure its the most homeopathic bull**** sounding thing ever, like oatmeal wheatgrass angelsand dust or some **** like that, cuz it will work better and make sure its non-greasy. 3- if its that bad then go see a dermatologist, i recommend clindoxyl and differin (night and day treatments), it waited 3 days and got full results.

It gets rid of your acne, but if you're not white, itll mess up your skin in different ways.
