Pre-Proactiv+ || My Skin Story

I have been kindly sent the Proactiv+ 3 Step Kit to try for the next 8-10 weeks and wanted to tell you what my skin condition is like at this moment in time, so we can all see the difference Proactiv+ makes.

My skin is a huge problem for me and really knocks my confidence. Waking up in the morning can be difficult, as I have loads of mirrors in my room and can't help but see the damage. Everyday you think 'how bad does it look', 'oh my god I'm hideous' or 'this needed covering'. The reason I think these things...I have SPOTS!

Everyone gets them at some point in their lives and when they hit, it's hard to consider yourself great. I have suffered with them most of my teenage life, now I'm 23 and they still bother me. I know I don't have it as bad as some people, but that doesn't mean it doesn't affect me just as much. I'm planning on getting married in a few years and I don't want to remember the day as a cover up nightmare. I don't consider myself beautiful without makeup, it's one of those things and it's hard to say that about myself out loud. It is a huge struggle to start posting photos of my natural no makeup face as it just puts me down so much.

Like most people, my skin has its good days and bad days, mainly bad days but we start to live with it. When my skin looks clear I feel amazing and put hardly any makeup on. Its a feeling that words cannot describe, to feel fantastic and happy. When you have this feeling everyone notices and you feel so much more confident. Then, just like Cinderella, you wake up and that clear day has gone. It's a loosing battle.

Before you start blaming every little thing you do to your face, STOP! Here are some fun myths that everyone has told me are true. Firstly, eating a lot of fatty or junk food. Yes we all associate spots with greasy food but your wrong, even health food nuts get blemishes. Obviously drinking and eating right will help the health of your skin but it won't get rid of spots. Not washing your face with soap, again wrong. Soap tends to dry out your face which can have a damaging effect to your skin. Over cleaning the face can lead to redness and you will be more partial to UV rays. So opt for something that is right for your skin. Not cleaning pillow cases regularly, again false. Yes you should wash your bedding as no one likes to sleep on dirty pillows, but you are still likely to get spots on a clean pillow regardless of how clean it is and the quality of the fabric.

These are just some of the countless myths that are told to us about spots. But you need to remember it's not your fault. For me it seems the biggest culprit is Hormones. Like most of the population, we get spots during our teens and its all to do with hormones. When we start to develop our hormones go haywire and our bodies and our skin just can't handle it. So it starts to look tired and sometimes produces spots. For me, now as a young adult, I can see it happening a lot clearer, and it usually occurs during that time of the month and all hell breaks loose on my face.

I have suffered for such a long time it's hard to imagine a day of clear, beautiful skin. So, I'm going to make a change. Starting from today (Monday 14th September 2015) I will be joining the 20 million customers worldwide that are using Proactiv+.

The three step system consists of a Skin Smoothing Exfoliator, Pore Targeting Treatment and a Complexion Perfecting Hydrator. Also, with the 3 step system is the Proactiv+ Skin Purifying Mask, which is great as an emergency overnight spot treatment or as a weekly facial mask. The three steps of the Proactiv+ System combine powerful anti-blemish treatments with effective skincare ingredients such as glycolic acid, prebiotics, kojic acid and other nourishing botanicals. These are great at fighting blemishes, which is why they boast that it is effective for those with spot-prone skin as well as those who suffer from occasional blemishes. Proactiv+ does more than fight breakouts. It is proven to deliver a more radiant and glowing complexion, reduce pore size, diminish redness, improve skin tone and smooth the texture of the skin with regular use. Which is why I am so excited to start using it. Everyone who knows me, knows I have huge pores and always start my day with a red face. Having a product that will combat not just my spots but also my pores and redness is worth having in your life. 

But, before using the three step system it is always good to know that the products are paraben-free, non-comedogenic and dermatologist tested as well as being suitable for all skin types. Having a product that doesn't clog your pores (non-comedogenic) means your face will feel even more cleaner and fresher, it will also help the closing process as there is nothing to stop them from closing. Being suitable for all means no faffing around finding the right products which can be annoying. It is so hard to find a great blemish treatment that doesn't say for sensitive skin or normal to dry, as most of you know I have oily skin. 

This is a huge venture for me and I am very excited to see how much my skin and my confidence changes. So join me in this journey to clear and radiant skin and discover what Proactiv+ can do.

The Proactiv+ 3-Step System (£19.99 +p&p) is available from www.proactiv.co.uk
