Tips to Avoid Proactiv Side Effects

More review at and

A lot of Proactiv reviews say that Proactiv is one of the best acne treatments and it really delivers desirable results. However, there is one thing you want to avoid while using Proactiv, the side effects. Like many acne treatments, Proactiv uses benzoyl peroxide as its main ingredient. This chemical compound is very effective in eliminating the acne causing bacteria. However, if not used properly, it can lead to a series of problems that will worsen your present acne condition. To avoid these side effects, I have listed here some tips that you may want to consider.

The first thing you need to consider before using Proactiv is your skin type. Each skin type is different and though Proactiv claims that their products are perfect for all skin types, some people cannot tolerate their formulation. The Proactiv system works well for oily skin types because the treatment tends to make your skin dry. However, if you use Proactiv on dry or sensitive skin, you may experience bothersome skin dryness and skin irritations. To avoid these side effects, you need to apply the treatment not more than twice a day or if you have dry or sensitive skin, you can use it once a day.

Be consistent with your daily routine. If you are looking for positive results, you need to apply the treatments religiously. Acne is a cycle and skipping a treatment means that you allows the acne cycle to start all over again. Never skip a treatment because this will make you breakout. You also need to use the treatment even after you have completely cleared away your blemishes to prevent future breakouts. Once you stop the treatment, your acne may come back and sometimes it can be worse than ever.

Other Proactiv users also complain about red blotches after spending long hours under the heat of the sun. These red blotches are also a side effect of benzoyl peroxide. While on the treatment, your skin is sensitive to direct sunlight. To avoid that, you need to use a sunscreen and wear protective covering if you can't avoid long exposures to direct sunlight.

These are just some of the things you need to keep in mind while using Proactiv. Hopefully, these tips have been helpful. Check out the full Proactiv review in for more information about Proactiv and to compare Proactiv with other acne treatments.
