Want the latest innovation for treating your acne? For the first time ever, the FDA has approved a prescription acne ingredient – Adapalene – for over-the-counter use, and ProactivMD is the first skincare system to have it.
I attended a fun event hosted by ProactivMD and received the new products that are already showing results on my skin. The stunning actress Olivia Munn attended as well and gave us the scoop on the new line featuring the ingredient Adapalene.
Your skin is going to love it! With the easy-to-use ProactivMD system, you’ll benefit from a benzoyl-peroxide free regimen which includes cleansing, toning, hydration, sun protection and the acne-fighting power of Adapalene, a prescription-strength retinoid that treats and prevents acne at the cellular level.
Now that Adapalene is available without a prescription we wanted to give you an overview of what you’ll experience during the first six weeks with ProactivMD. Knowledge is power, as they say, and if you’re clear on what to expect from this next-level acne medication you’re more likely to stay the course and get the clear, radiant skin you’ve always wanted. Everyone’s skin is different so your experience may vary and that’s (vitamin) A-OK!
