Hi everyone :waving: I’ve only just discovered this forum even though I’ve been browsing through Adore Beauty for a couple of years.
Anyhoo, Im just wondering if anyone out there has ever used/is using Proactiv skincare. Since July of this year I’ve suffered the most horrid of breakouts on my face. Im talking that awful acne, the non head ones that are painful and blackheads. After a couple of months of trying different things, a friend suggested I use Proactiv. Her skin was testament to how good it can be (although I was aware going in that it may not produce the same effect as she has different skin to me, obviously). But I thought I would give it a try, and lo, it worked! After a month of using it I only broke out around my monthly time and I only had 2 pimples!
I still get those little awful blackheads. I thought Proactiv was for blackheads too? I dont use Proactiv as religiously as I did when I first started, as my acne has eased I’ve gone back to a more simpler skincare routine as I have read countless times that sometimes part of the reason of a major breakout is using different products that can aggravate the skin. My moisturiser is my favourite Vitamin E cream from the Body Shop. My skin just absorbs it, and I am really really trying to drink 2 litres of water a day. My skin looks parched and line-ey if I dont drink enough water.
What can I do to tone down the blackhead breakout? I’ve even reached the stage now where I dont need to wear foundation, only a primer and I know its not my primer that is causing the blackheads. Or maybe it is? Its the Skin Glow one from Natio.
I can only see the blackheads when I lean in close to the mirror but they’re still unsightly and gross, blackheads, in my opinion, are grosser than pimples.
Anyway, I hope someone can help. Or at least point me in the right direction?
Many thanks - and happy festive season! :tree:
