March, is the time when summer in the Philippines kicks off. And since the day is fast approaching, it is important that we will take good care of our skin. One of the best way to do it is by using the ProActiv Renewing Cleanser.
This oil free, soap free medicated formula contains advanced micro crystal benzoyl peroxide in combination with mild cleanser that lightly washes the skin.

It attacks, kill acne-causing bacteria and reduce the number of acne pimples.

Why is ProActiv Renewing Cleanser superior than regular cleanser / soap?
While it may seem counter intuitive, harsh scrubbing does not unclog your pores any better than gentle cleansing, and may actually worsen your acne. Cleansing and scrubbing only reduce surface oils and dean skin cells. Many people use harsh products, laden with alcohol and foamy surfactants (detergents) somehow wash the acne off their skin. However, these actions produce irritation and worsen acne. It is possible to gently unplug pores with fine polyethylene beads that gently relieve impacted pores without irritation. Proactiv Renewing Cleanser does not contains any surfactants that can harsh the skin.
Proactiv Renewing Cleanser is formulated without the harsh detergents known as surfactants found in many other cleansers. Surfactants, which are responsible for a sudsy foam and lather, strip skin of its essential oils. As a result, the skin barrier becomes damaged and vulnerable to irritation and impaction.
What is the role of ProActiv Renewing Cleanser Combination Therapy?
The Renewing Cleanser help removes dead skin cells and impurities which can clog the pore. The advanced microcrystal benzoyl peroxide in the Proactiv 3-Step System kill acne-causing bacteria while the glycolic acid and other exfoliants reduce excess oils and dead skin cells.
