Looking for one amazing product to cleanse, treat and moisturize? Or a spot treatment to do it all? You could be looking for a long time. No one acne product can do it all.

Do you go with the benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid? Do you need a moisturizer or is your lotion causing your breakouts? These are questions acne sufferers struggle with all the time. Part of the reason it seems so confusing is there actually isn’t one right answer. Here’s why:

To get acne you need three things: oil, bacteria and clogging. But one product can’t address all those issues. A layered approach – including exfoliation, treatment and hydration-  will remove excess debris, while getting at the root of the problem. To make things simple, Proactiv developed the Proactiv+ 3-Step System so each step is already laid out in order.

You start with the Skin Smoothing Exfoliator, which gently clears excess oil and dirt while killing acne-causing bacteria with benzoyl peroxide. Then you treat using the Pore Targeting Treatment that delivers twice the acne-fighting benzoyl peroxide into the pore, where acne starts. This disrupts the acne process to help prevent new pimples from forming.

The Proactiv+ Complexion Perfecting Hydrator is the final step. It combines salicylic acid, omega-6 ceramide and skin brightening botanicals like kojic acid, licorice extract, sophora root and bearberry. These ingredients work together to unclog pores, moisturize, soothe and brighten the skin, making it the ultimate hydrating product.

Proactiv+ combines acne-fighting medicine in a full-face daily skin-care program of cleansing, treating, repairing and hydrating. Using the prescription-grade acne medicine in correct doses can clear existing blemishes and help prevent future breakouts.

Just follow a few simple steps and let the products do the rest!
