The holiday season is here and I’m sure like myself, you all are celebrating with family and friends. But the thing about celebrations, we usually don’t get to have enough sleep.

The unhealthy feast spread found in parties does not help too – that, and sleep deprivation are the major causes of breakouts.

How to Prevent Smartphone Induced Acne

Just when you thought your smartphone is your  best buddy, clinical studies show that it is more of your skin’s enemy than your friend.

According to the study done by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, it was revealed that 92% of the subjects’ hands and 82% of their smartphones had bacteria on them. This was of the 780 swab samples, half of which was taken from smartphones and the other half from their owners hands. Crazy, right?!

Acne Problems? Benzoyl Peroxide to the Rescue!

Studies and research have shown that Benzoyl Peroxide (BPO) is the known compound that effectively fights acne and stops it from getting worse.

Misconceptions about Benzoyl Peroxide (BPO)

  • Skin develops a dependency on the solution
  • Quitting its application will make acne develop faster and comes back “with a vengeance.”

 

How an acne develops diagram

Above is a diagram of how an acne develops.

How Acne Develops:

  • A pore is blocked by excess keratin, sebum, and dead skin cells comes in contact with bacteria which cause the inflammation.

How Does Benzoyl Peroxide (BPO) Stop Acne:

  • Benzoyl Peroxyl breaks down into benzoic acid and oxygen, and the oxygen acts as a free radical destroying the cells that blocks the pores along with the bacteria growing on it.
  • During the early stages of acne formation,  BPO is known to be effective in preventing these outbreaks on the skin.

So where is this Benzoyl Peroxide (BPO) scare coming from?

Here’s where the misconception comes in – when you have too much of the BPO on your skin, making sure that the acne-causing bacteria is eliminated from the surface, gives the skin unnecessary stress than protection. That stress leaves the skin more vulnerable to more acne outbreaks after quitting from BPO treatment. Using BPO the right way, meaning more strategically, on skin could help drastically minimize the formation of acne and prevent future outbreaks.

Good thing, Proactive Solution, America’s #1 Acne Treatment System has Benzoyl Peroxide that kills acne-causing bacteria.

Step 1: Proactive Renewing Cleanser. The ultra-fine microcrystal BPO penetrates the pores effectively but gently. The round exfoliating beads unclog the pores of impurities, excess ebum, keratin and dead skin.

Step 2: Alcohol-free Proactiv Revitalizing Toner refines and purifies pores, exfoliating the skin further by removing more dead skin cells and keeps pores unclogged. It also has soothing botanicals that gently balance the skin tone, removes excess oil for a refreshed, clear skin.

Step 3: Proactiv Repairing Lotion is an as-light-as-feather treatment that heals the blemishes off the skin and also helps in preventing new acne from forming.

FREE Refining Mask comes with every Proactiv Kit. The Refining Mask does its job to make sure skin is kept clear and acne-free. It is formulated with sulfur, a proven acne-fighting ingredient, reaches deep into the pores where blemishes begin. The Refining Mask unclogs pores, pampers inflamed skin, and softens the skin’s texture.

Note that  Proactiv only has 2.5% of BPO, which is lower than other over-the-counter acne treatments so it is safer to use daily. This level of concentration can already effectively kill acne-causing bacteria so there’s really no cause for worries–really. So not be afraid of whatever misconceptions there is about BPO and set your skin free of acne. Use it correctly, and you will never have to worry about acne again.

Proactiv Solution comes in 30-Day kit (Php 2,495) and 60-Day kit (Php 3,995) and is available at all Watsons stores nationwide.
