ACNE AT ANY AGE IS NO FUN
Today we are talking about acne which is no fun at any age.Trust me, I know.
I have suffered from acne my whole life. Lucky me.Not only do I have acne, I have extremely oily skin. From the time I hit puberty until my 19th birthday I dealt with oily skin,big pimples and just bad skin all around.Needless to say, it didn't help with my confidence at all, being a teenager is hard enough as is. When I was in my early teens people would always say to me "don't worry you'll grow out of it". Well I kept waiting for that to happen but it never did. It seemed like it only got worse. I just wanted to be a normal teenage girl and play with make-up and flirt with boys but my skin really put a damper on that. I tried every over the counter product and nothing worked. I went to the dermatologist, strike two! O.k. so I guess I am destined to have gross skin for the rest of my life. Bummer :(
Lets fast forward to the Christmas when I was 18. My mother, knowing how much my acne brought me down, tells me she ordered me a Christmas present but it was being shipped to my house.She would not tell me what it was, only that I would receive it in about a week. Hmm... a mystery gift, how fun! For the next week or so I waited by the mailbox for this mystery item until one day a box shows up. Yay! I open the brown shipping box to find another box inside. A white box that has the words PROACTIVE written on it. What is this? Proactive? I had never heard of it. At this time Proactive was a new company claiming to clear up acne.I've tried everything, why not one more. I honestly didn't have high expectations because nothing else has ever worked.
I started using it the second week in January and by my 19th birthday, which is in the first week of February, I was almost completely acne free!!! I couldn't believe it. Is this too good to be true? No pimples, softer,brighter with less oil.My skin has never looked this good.Ever. I finally felt good about myself. Wearing make-up,flirting with boys,having my picture taken, all things I was never comfortable doing before.
Unfortunately acne never goes away. I'm now in my 30s and Proactive is still part of my daily routine. Without Proactive and their great line of products my face would look like a greasy pizza and no one wants that. If you or anyone you know has acne and has tried different product to no avail I suggest you give Proavtive a try. They offer a 60 day money back guarantee and for new customers it's only $19.99.
