Hello sweet gorgeous friends! June is national acne month-or so I just found out! And in honor of it, Proactiv has sent over this lovely bit of information which I am going to share with you in honor of TEEN WEEK officially starting tomorrow!
Did you know… 25% of all men and 50% of all women suffer from adult acne?
DAY 1: PIMPLE EMERGENCY!
Here’s everything you will need for the dreaded “Pimple Emergency!” Along with the above products, new and current Proactiv customers will now have access to a new program called Proactiv365. This program gives customers 24 hour access to trained skincare advisors who can help them manage their needs, give advice and help them manage any “emergencies” along the way.
We are thrilled to offer you “concierge access,” to this great service. Please feel free to reach out to me to receive a customized access number, if interested.
Proactiv Advanced Blemish Treatment: This handy, invisible, throw-it-in-your-purse is an emergency dose of the powerful anti-acne ingredient, benzoyl peroxide. Dab it on to start killing acne and bacteria on contact.
Proactiv Concealer Plus: Last minute zits are instantly hidden with this powerful concealer. With a concentrated dose of antibacterial sulfur, the zit will be gone in no time.
DAY 2: STRESS TEST
Just in time to pass any stress test, use these Proactiv products before your next meeting and no one will see you sweat – then enjoy a soothing cup of chamomile tea to fully unwind.
Proactiv Daily Oil Control: You know the drill – you put makeup on in the morning but after running around the office for a few hours, your face seems to be shiny again. Daily Oil Control is one invisible, thin layer that controls facial oil and keeps makeup exactly where you put it.
Proactiv Oil Blotter Sheets: Perfect for oily skin or for those hot summer days. The Oil Blotter Sheets are 100% natural fiber papers that leave your face feeling fresh and clean – no talc, no artificial ingredients and no clogged pores!
DAY 3: CELEBRITY FAVORITES
Alicia Keys, Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson, Avril Lavigne and Justin Beiber – the uber popular musicians are only a few of the more than 40 Proactiv customers turned spokespeople.
Try out the celeb favorite products while you jam out to their greatest hits.
Proactiv Green Tea Moisturizer: A favorite of Julianne Hough – This light, intensely hydrating moisturizer is rich in minerals and botanical extracts like green tea to help keep your skin soft and moisturized and designed specifically not to clog pores.
Proactiv Refining Mask: A favorite of Avril Lavigne –This beauty award winning (and customer favorite!) banishes zits and prevents new ones from forming with a powerful concentration of 6% antibacterial sulfur. The vitamin-enriched formula, that can be used as a mask OR a spot treatment, is designed to give you a brighter looking complexion with refined texture and smaller pores.
Proactiv Oil Free Moisture SPF 15: A favorite of Katy Perry – This three-in-one moisturizer hydrates the skin, absorbs excess oil and provides SPF 15 to help protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays.
Proactiv Medicated Cleansing Bar: A favorite of Justin Bieber – This Medicated Cleansing Bar, suitable for all skin types, is a soap-free cleansing treatment that works to gently wash away excess dirt, oil and other impurities on the skin. Boasting 1% salicylic acid and smooth, round micro-exfoliating beads that lift away dead skin cells, the Bar unclogs pores while clearing and preventing whiteheads, blackheads and future breakouts from forming.
DAY 4: THE START OF SUMMER
June isn’t just the month for Acne Awareness, it’s also the start of summer!
Above you’ll find must-haves for an upcoming vacay – your summer getaway beauty survival package.
Proactiv Makeup Cleansing Wipes: These gentle towelettes remove lipstick, foundation and even mascara in the blink of an eye. Each disposable wipe is pre-moistened with a nourishing soap-free cleanser that removes makeup completely off the face – without any water or rinsing!
Proactiv Daily Protection Plus Sunscreen SPF 30: Acne-prone skin can often have trouble in the sun, as most sunscreens clog pores and create breakouts! The lightweight, oil-free SPF 30 is designed specifically for acne-prone skin, won’t clog pores and vanishes instantly into the skin, leaving no sticky residue.
Proactiv Mini Maintenance Travel System: Besides being National Acne Awareness Month, June is also a popular month to travel, which is exactly why the travel-sized version of the Proactiv 3-Step System is a perfect way to keep your complexion clear this summer – perfect for your gym bag or purse as well!
