Don't Shy Away from Wedding Photogs! Clear up Your Skin With This Confidence-Boosting Kit
Wake up with a zit on the big day? Proactiv knows how to help.
Proactiv Solution Stress-Free Kit
We've all been there. You wake up in the morning feeling refreshed and ready to start the day, and your first glance in the mirror reveals a pimple putting a bullseye right in the middle of your nose, or chin, or forehead. Normally, ugh, whatever, toss on a little color corrector and concealer and go on your merry way. But what about those Big Day days? You know, the ones you've been getting ready for all year: that huge party, your best friend's wedding, or—ahh!—your wedding?
Take a breath. Don't panic. It's a beauty 911 but Proactiv is here to answer the call. After all, there's a reason Kendall Jenner swears by the brand.
Proactiv's Stress-Free Skin Wedding Kit is designed specifically for these type of Big Day emergencies. It's an acne treatment solution formulated to clear blemishes on the spot and help prevent future breakouts.
The "holy grail" product in the kit is the Emergency Blemish Relief. It's an invisible spot treatment that uses the highest over-the-counter dose of prescription-grade micro-crystal benzoyl peroxide to target acne-causing bacteria and zap your zit when you need it gone ASAP. Apply it as soon as you spot the blemish, and even toss it in your cute new wedding clutch in case of emergency. Yes, that means you don't have to shy away from all the shutter snapping photographers at the wedding. Strike a pose!
Even before the day-of, prepare yourself for the wedding Instagram hashtag and all the professional shutterbugs with the Proactiv Solution Stress-Free Wedding Kit which includes Proactiv's three-step system of Renewing Cleanser, Revitalizing Toner, and Repairing Treatment, plus the aforementioned Emergency Blemish Relief and Blackhead Dissolving Gel. Get the scoop on how each product hones in on the root causes of acne, including bacteria, and dead skin cell build-up, to give you refreshed and healthy skin.
Proactiv's strong but gentle cleanser preps your skin for all the acne-fighting goodness coming in this three step-kit. Use it twice daily, morning and night, and take a minute or two to gently massage it into your skin. Pop on the latest Lizzo while you cleanse to help you time it out and feel like the baddie you are.
Post-cleanse, this alcohol-free toner works to sweep away any impurities deep in your pores without harsh, skin-stripping ingredients. It also works to balance your skin's pH. Too-high or too-low pH can make your skin feel tight or dry, which is definitely not what you want when you have a big wedding on the calendar. Apply with a cotton ball or pad, but be sure to do so in an upward motion to help lift and tighten your skin's appearance.
The final step in your three-step program is Proactiv's Repairing Treatment, which, like the Emergency Blemish Relief, uses benzoyl peroxide to combat acne. Target any affected area with a thin layer once daily, and then build up to a maximum of three times daily. It can be drying, so definitely follow up with your favorite moisturizer, and as always, don't forget your sunscreen if you're heading outside!
Emergency Blemish Relief
This is your ASAP zit-zapping must-have. Toss it into your purse and dab onto the affected area with a cotton swab or just your finger as needed, up to three times a day. If you spot a blemish the night before your big event, dab it on before bed and let it clear up your pores as you sleep!
Blackhead Dissolving Gel
Not only does this gel work to deep clean your pores, it helps soothe and soften your skin. Its salicylic acid dissolves blackheads and unclogs pores and lactic acid gently exfoliates, all while green tea extract, shea butter, and aloe vera soothe sensitive skin. Once or twice a week, use the Blackhead Dissolving Gel as a mask. Apply it onto your clean face and neck and massage into your skin. After five minutes, rinse with warm water.
