regimen.. right or wrong?

Recommended Posts


I used to have really bad acnes before, and I started using proactive about 2 years ago, and it really cleared up my face. I used to get a lot of pimples, and my face looked pretty bad that I couldn't even cover it up with a face foundation. Proactive cleared it up a lot, but my problem is acne scars, I do get the occasional pimple, but my acne scars are not going away.

I wanted to ask you guys if the regimen works for acne scars. I am afraid to go off proactive because it does keep my face clear of pimples, and I do wear proactive every day under my cover up.

Any suggestions on acne scars, and would this regimen work for acne scars or not?

I was thinking of ordering the benzoyl peroxide/gel and to use it at night, before i go to bed. Should I even bother with this?

Thanks so much for your help

This is a regimen to treat acne, not a scar treatment.

I'm also wondering if you are asking about real scars or the little red spots that are left on the skin after pimples heal?

I'll give you some links to read on both, since I'm not sure which you are asking about.

I also wanted to mention that Proactive already has benzoyl peroxide in it, btw, in case you didn't realize that.

I hope this is helpful.
