I tried Proactiv because of this and it was terrible for me. It dried out my skin to the point it would start peeling. I would have to scrub my face right when I got home from work because the skin would be peeling and looking horrible. I really saw no improvement whatsoever as a result of using Proactiv.
I tried it for about 2 months, having to cut down to using it just once a day because of how much it dried out my skin. I would often skip the second step of the astringent because it was too drying. I would also have to add another moisturizer because my skin got so dry.
My skin is its worst now. It is very irritated and itchy. I stopped using Proactive about a month ago. I will occasionally use the lotion in hopes it will work, but nothing really does.
I truly believe my problem is hormone-related so I am seeing a dermatologist in a week. I am hoping to get on accutane or something that will work with my hormones and not dry out my skin.
I must say, though, that the Proactiv did soften my skin up a bit in my non-problem areas. But I feel my skin is no better at all because of Proactiv.
