To help fight one of the most troublesome issues associated with acne – stubborn dark spots/blotches that acne can leave behind after breakouts have healed – Proactiv introduces new Acne & Dark Spot Repair. The Acne & Dark Spot Repair system is designed to help clear your skin and gradually fade post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation or dark spots on the skin that can sometimes take months to fade.
After acne clears, dark spots are sometimes left behind, ranging in color from pink to brown depending on skin tone. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, many people mistakenly believe these spots are acne scars. Unlike acne scars, the spots will eventually fade; however, there are ways to make them fade more quickly with skin lightening treatments and regular use of oil-free sunscreen.
The Proactiv Acne & Dark Spot Repair system contains:
The iconic Proactiv 3-Step System – America’s number one acne system – which includes:
Dark Spot Corrector formulated with 2% hydroquinone designed to fade skin discoloration.
Daily Protection Plus Sunscreen SPF 30 specifically designed for acne prone skin.
This combination is designed to treat acne effectively, prevent future breakouts and help gradually fade dark spots; while daily sun protection prevents spots from darkening and protects skin while it heals.
The Proactiv Acne & Dark Spot Repair system retails for $29.95 plus shipping and handling.
