Re: Proactive ?? longterm effects?
I started using proactive in the 8th grade, and it worked amazingly for about two years. My acne was quite moderate as well. I have quite sensitive skin, but never had any problems with it. Itís true that you do have to follow the routine strictly, but I never thought it was a hard routine to follow in the first place. After the first two years using proactive however, it stopped working for me, and I had to visit a dermatologist and discontinue using proactive. It got really bad after I stopped using it though. I took a 5-month break from proactive, and have started using it again. After about 2 weeks, my skin had gotten much better, though it hasn't had the same results as when I first used it.
Iíve heard rumors that your skin can build up a resistance to proactive, but I canít say for sure if thatís true or not. Basically, it works differently for everyone, so it could be worth a shot trying.
