Adam Levine’s Proactiv TV Commercial


Lead singer, Adam Levine of the Grammy Award-winning band, Maroon 5, made quite a name for himself in the music scene with his signature hot looks and superb singing voice. But did you know that he who was voted “Sexiest Man Alive” last 2013 also struggled with acne breakouts during his teenage years?

Many envy Adam for his undeniable charm and charisma but just like any normal teenager, he suffered acne and lacked self-confidence too. Surprisingly for someone who looked so natural in the front of the camera, he once stayed away from the crowd due to this worsening skin problem. Shares Adam, “People might think that nothing fazes me but that’s just not true. Nobody is proud of having acne. It isn’t fun. In fact, it sucks. I suffered from acne when I was younger which made me so insecure. It was not a pleasant experience. ”

Fortunately, America’s #1 acne treatment system, Proactiv Solution, became the answer to his pressing concern. Proactiv’s 3-Step System is developed by dermatologist. It is designed to help clear existing acne and prevent future outbreaks while gently caring for your skin.

Adds Adam, “So if your acne is your problem, the solution is Proactiv, bottomline. I know how important it is to get acne out of your life. Proactiv helped me. It’s no brainer. Just do it because you’ll be very happy. It is great that there is something out there now that is legitimate.”

Now with clear skin, Adam Levine no longer feels the need to hide. Says Adam, “It is a game changer. It treats acne and your skin right. As a guy, I don’t like to put a lot of acne products but with Proactiv, it is just three easy steps. That’s all you need to do.”

Here’s Adam Levine’s Proactiv commercial:

Proactiv Solution comes in 30-Day kit (P2,495) and 60-Day kit (P3,995). It is available in all Watsons stores nationwide.

Adam Levine Reveals Secret To His Confidence

If for some insane reason, you do not remember who Adam Levine is, let me refresh your memory. He is the lead singer of the Grammy Award winning band, Maroon 5. He is responsible for such popular hits as This Love, Payphone, and Sugar which earned gold and platinum record awards. He made quite a name for himself in the music industry with his amazing voice and signature good looks that never fail to make women swoon (this one included). He sat as one of the judges in the Emmy Award-winning singing contest, The Voice, and starred in the indie film, Begin Again, where his 222 Records label track Lost Stars was nominated for Best Original Song at the Academy Awards.

While most women go gaga over his hot looks (he was declared the “Sexiest Man Alive” of 2013) and remarkable talent, men aspire for the same kind of charisma and confidence that he exudes. What others do not know is that, he too suffered from severe acne breakouts back when he was a teen. This took away much of his confidence and forced him to stay away from the crowd. Adam shares, “I was so ashamed of my acne. I had horrible breakouts and would hide from cameras or hide in my room. It is like one day acne showed up, caused trouble, and messed with my confidence.” You would think that acne’s been a thing of the past for Adam, but no, when his schedule gets busy, the stress still takes a toll on his skin. He discloses, “I am a very active person and truth is, it kind of lead to zits.”

Fortunately for Adam, America’s #1 acne treatment system, Proactiv Solution, took care of his acne problems before it became worse. If there one thing Adam wants people to understand it is that, just because celebrities look so good on the screen does not mean they do not suffer from skin problems like everybody else. Says Adam, “I always want to make sure that people understand that even though we are celebrities or successful, we are no different than anybody else.” Adam encourages those with acne to try Proactiv 3-Step System. He emphasizes, “You have to take these steps if you want to take good care of your skin. It has your skin in mind, it is legit, and in fact a lot of it is restorative and healthy, which is great.”

Proactiv’s 3-Step System is dermatologist-developed and is designed to help clear existing acne and prevent future outbreaks, while gently taking care of the skin. It is ideal for people on the go because it takes no more than five minutes to complete. It starts with the application of:

Step 1: The Renewing Cleanser which contains Benzoyl Peroxide that help kill acne-causing bacteria. It has ultra-fine, micro-crystal BPO that gently penetrates pores and tiny exfoliating beads which help unclog the pores of impurities, such as excess sebum, keratin and dead skin cells.

Step 2: The Proactiv Revitalizing Toner which refines and purifies pores through gentle exfoliation. It contains soothing botanicals to gently remove excess oil for a refresher and clearer skin.

Step 3: The Repairing Lotion which helps heal breakouts and prevent new ones from forming.

Each Proactiv kit comes with a free Refining Mask that helps keep skin clear and acne-free. Formulated with sulfur, a proven acne-fighting ingredient, this Refining Mask reaches deep into the pores where blemishes begin. It also unclogs pores, pampers inflamed skin, and softens the skin’s texture.

Adam Levine described Proactiv’s 3-Step Solution best when he said, “It is game changer; it treats acne and your skin right,” Adam said.

Proactiv Solution comes in 30-Day kit (P2,495) and 60-Day kit (P3,995) and is available at all Watsons stores nationwide.

Benzoyl Peroxide: The Best Acne Treatment

Known to be a compound that fights acne from getting worse, Benzoyl Peroxide (BPO) is perhaps one of the most deeply misunderstood acne treatment in the market. Users have shied away from this relatively cheap and effective cure mainly because of some misconceptions that surround it, the popular of which is, “quitting its application after continued use will worsen the acne.”

To better understand why it is the best option for acne treatment, here’s a quick rundown of how it works, what it does, and how to use it:

Acne happens when a pore blocked by excess keratin, sebum, and dead skin cells comes in contact with the bacteria which in turn causes inflammation. What BPO does is it breaks down into benzoic acid and oxygen. The oxygen acts as a free radical that destroys the cells that blocks the pores and the bacteria growing on it. During the early stages of acne formation, BPO is known to effectively prevent breakouts from getting worse.

Its misuse, however, can cause stress on the skin. Too much of it can elevate the stress level of the skin making it more vulnerable to breakouts. Experts advised that it should only be used conservatively and as directed since overuse can easily damage instead of repair skin.

Fortunately, America’s #1 acne treatment, Proactiv Solution, offers a 3-Step System. Developed and recommended by dermatologists, this skin care regimen helps clear existing acne and prevents future breakouts while gently caring for the skin. It contains only 2.5% of BPO which is lower than any other over-the-counter acne treatment in the market, making it is safe for daily use.

It only takes no more than five minutes to do this 3-Step System:

It starts with the use of Proactiv Renewing Cleanser. This cleanser has ultra-fine micro-crystal BPO that penetrates deep into the pores to kill the acne-causing bacteria. These tiny, round exfoliating beads unclog the pores of impurities, such as excess sebum, keratin, and dead skin cells.

The alcohol-free Proactiv Revitalizing Toner which is applied immediately after, refines and purifies pores. It exfoliate the skin further by unclogging and removing more dead skin cells. It also has soothing botanicals that gently balance the skin tone leaving skin clear and feeling more refreshed.

Lastly, the Proactiv Repairing Lotion heals blemishes off the skin and prevents new acne from forming. It is what seals the deal to healthy glowing skin.

Each Proactiv kit comes with a free Refining Mask. Since its main ingredient is sulfur, a proven acne-fighting ingredient, it helps keep skin clear and acne-free. It unclogs pores, soothes inflamed skin, and softens the skin’s texture.

Proactiv Solution comes in 30-Day kit (Php 2,495) and 60-Day kit (Php 3,995) and is available at all Watsons stores nationwide. So what are you waiting for, grab a Proactiv Solution Kit and trust BPO to care for your skin now.

Proactiv Success Stories

I chanced upon a friend who I have not seen for a long time the other day and she remarked how she’s been missing some of my selfies in Instagram. I hate to admit it but my struggle with adult acne have put my face off social media for a while.

It’s true that acne tends to create a wall between you and the world. When you have acne, you avoid social events and shy away from situations that would put your pimples on spotlight. Case in point, I cannot count the number of times I have to save myself from an embarassing conversation that started out as nice but ended up awkward because the person I was talking to cannot help but remark about my breakouts. I know its rude but I mean, how can they help it when I have big angry pimples screaming, ACNE!

Anyway, Acne influences a person’s self-esteem and self-confidence in ways a person with a perfect skin won’t even understand. Even mild breakouts have a negative impact on how a person with acne feels about herself. Trust me, I know.

But for the Acne warriors out there like me who’s been battling with this skin disease for a long time, here’s a word of advice. Carry on, don’t give up because Proactiv Solution is here to help us win the fight! Proactiv Solution is the only acne management system that successfully combines medicated ingredients to treat and control acne. It uses several ingredients in one system to address the blemishes you have now and help keep new ones from forming. With Proactiv, you’ll get back the control you once have over your skin in no time.

Here are some inspirational stories from ordinary people who have won over acne and who are now enjoying the life-changing benefits of clear, beautiful skin.

The Truth About Acne

Acne is not only common to teenagers, nearly everyone experiences acne at some point. Some may have it for a few months while others may have it for years. Trust me, I know. I had relatively smooth skin up until I hit my thirties then it went downhill from there. I have what dermatologists call adult acne.

What exactly is acne? You might ask, and how exactly does it develop?

Well, an acne blemish begins approximately 2-3 weeks before it appears on your skin’s surface. While it may seem like you get a pimple overnight, what you’re actually seeing is the final stage of a much longer process.

Acne formation starts in your sebaceous hair follicles – the tiny holes you know as pores. Deep within each follicle, sebaceous glands are working to produce sebum, the oil that keeps your skin moist and pliable. As your skin renews itself, the old cells die, mix in with your skin’s natural oils, and are sloughed off. Under normal circumstances, these cells are shed gradually, making room for fresh new skin. In the case of acne prone skin, these dead skin cells block the pores resulting to over accumulation of oil underneath. Bacteria that live on the skin naturally begin to grow and multiply on this site, triggering an inflammatory response that causes the red, angry pore that we see as pimple.

What triggers acne?

Contrary to popular belief, acne is not caused by eating too much chocolates or oily foods, nor does it occur exclusively during puberty. Acne is a cyclic process that everyone experiences at any age. Stress, hormonal imbalance, climate changes, cosmetic products (comedogenic), drugs, and industrial chemicals are factors that trigger acne formation.

How do you prevent acne from forming?

There are certain skin types that are naturally predisposed to acne formation. While you might probably be one of those who might inevitably experience it (like me), there’s a lot you can do to prevent it.

Nourish. There is no perfect diet to clear acne than a healthy, balanced diet. Eating fresh, unprocessed foods and daily hydration of at least eight glasses of water a day, or more when you exercise, can work wonders on your skin.

Cleanse. Sticking to a daily acne-fighting skin-care routine helps maintain a clear skin. Washing your face gently with a soap-free exfoliating cleanser twice a day to remove excess oil, dirt, and dead skin cells helps balances skin’s ph level. Just a bit of a warning though, excessive washing can cause skin to dry out and produce more oil so make sure you don’t over do it.

Protect. While small amounts of sun exposure may seem to clear acne at first, the sun actually dries your skin causing it to produce more oil and dead skin cells. This creates an ideal environment for blemishes. Avoiding excess sun exposure and wearing at least SPF 15 sunscreen every day, even if it’s cloudy, prevents skin from drying up and oiling.

Rest. A good night’s sleep (7-8 hours) does magic to your complexion. This boosts the immune system responsible for fighting infections too such as acne.

Exercise. The skin benefits from an increase in blood flow and oxygen when you exercise. If your body is prone to acne, just make sure to wear loose-fit and breathable clothing when you work out, and shower with an acne-fighting body wash soon after.

Relax. Hormones control the sebaceous glands that produce the protective oil that keeps skin soft and supple. Psychological stress, sad to say, affects hormone levels. Too much stress therefore, causes these glands to produce more oil thus triggering acne. So relax and do what makes you happy. If walking, running, dancing, or yoga calms you, do it!

Beauty Hacks by Alex Gonzaga

As an actress, comedienne, and TV host, it is part of Alex Gonzaga’s job to take good care of herself, especially her skin. Being on the limelight, her face has to be camera-ready at all times. The 27 year old actress knows that to maintain a clear and radiant skin, she has to keep a healthy lifestyle, from what she eats to what she does off-cam.

image

Alex graciously shares some beauty hacks guranteed to keep face acne-free. Here are some of them:

1. Get as much sleep as you can

Getting at least 7-8 hours of sleep has been proven to reduce one’s stress level. Stress which causes the sebaceous glands to produce more oil leads to the formation of acne. Alex explains, “Sleep helps the skin recover after a long tiring day so I make sure I get enough rest every night.”

Personal Tip: Studies have also shown that cell regeneration happens between 10 pm to 2 am, so make sure to sleep no later than 10 so your body can benefit much from skin cell regeneration.

2. Drink lots of water

Increasing the amount of water you drink is a great way to hydrate skin and flush out internal toxins from the inside out. Alex shares that she always keeps a bottle of water to keep herself hydrated during long hours of shoot.

Personal Tip: Add lemon to your water to balance the PH level of your body for a more glowing skin.

3. Exercise

Physical activity cut down stress and improves blood circulation. Exercise efficiently distributes oxygen to skin cells and carries wastes away. Alex adds, “I do pilates regularly. It is fun and a great way to relieve stress.”

Personal Tip: 20-30 minutes of moderate to intense exercise everyday is enough to improve blood circulation. You not only glow, you burn (fats) as well.

4. Sleeping without makeup on

No matter how tired she is after a long day at the set, Alex religiously takes time to remove all traces of makeup from her face to make sure her pores are not clogged with sweat, dust, and dirt.

Personal Tip: Choosing the right make-up is important as well. Some make-ups have strong chemicals and harmful ingredients that can make skin react thereby causing breakouts. Make sure to check the active ingredients in the product before you start using them. It is always safe to choose organic and hypoallergenic.

5. Invest in over-the-counter product

Alex swears by Proactiv, the leading anti-acne treatment product which is safe and effective to use by almost everyone. Alex shares, “Proactiv has always been part of my beauty regimen for six years. Its specially-formulated ingredients help treat and prevent acne.”

Personal Tip: Composed of the complete 3-Step System to knock out acne, Proactiv is very economical, safe, and easy to use:

Step 1 is the Renewing Cleanser, an oil-free, soap-free medicated exfoliating cleanser with U.S. prescription-grade benzoyl peroxide that kills acne-causing bacteria.

Step 2 is the Revitalizing Toner, a refreshing alcohol-free toner that refines and purifies pores.

Step 3 is the Repairing Treatment, a feather-light, invisible medicated treatment that kills acne-causing bacteria.

Every Proactiv kit comes with a free Proactiv Refining Mask, a rich, deep-cleansing mask formulated with sulfur, a proven acne- fighting ingredient that reaches deep into the pores where blemishes begin.

As Alex puts it, “Proactiv use only requires less than five minutes a day. It’s convenient and it works!” Take it from her, she sure knows her way to a smooth and acne-free skin.

The First Filipina Face of Proactiv

I got word from my brand partner, Proactiv, that they have finally found the perfect Filipina who embodies the brand. Last month,27-year-old actress and comediene, Alex Gonzaga, joined the roster of Hollywood elites as the first Filipino endorser of Proactiv.

image

Although I am not particularly fond of Alex, I have to admit that her charm and not to mention her loyalty to the brand makes her a perfect Proactiv endorser. Shares Alex, “The Proactiv 3-Step System has been an important part of my daily skin care routine for years! It is effective and easy to use. I am so thrilled to be the first Filipina face of Proactiv and tell everyone all about my experience using it.” She further adds, “It’s mild formulation gently exfoliates my skin, removes excess oil and delivers powerful acne-fighting medicine.”

Being an in-demand celebrity, she knows first hand how stress and fatigue can take a toll on the skin. She spends long hours taping, doing shoots, and attending to mall shows. She also puts on pounds of make-up which can cause damages on the skin such as zits and breakouts. If there is one person who can sincerely and credibly share how Proactiv’s dermatologically tested ingredients make skin clear, radiant and acne-free, it is Alex.

I was quite impressed when I learned that even with her frenetic schedule, Alex purposely finds time to do her Proactiv’s simple and easy 3-Step System. She explains her step by step beauty regimen as:

STEP 1: “Before going to sleep, I apply Proactiv’s Renewing Cleanser. You can feel it gently removing impurities in your skin with its exfoliating beads.” Akex shares.

The Renewing Cleanser is an oil-free, soap-free medicated exfoliating cleanser that kills acne-causing bacteria. It has U.S. prescription-grade benzoyl peroxide which are ultra-fine micro-crystals that penetrate the pores fast while being gentle on the skin.

STEP 2: “I follow it up with the Revitalizing Toner,” Alex continues.

Proactiv’s Revitalizing Toner is a refreshing alcohol-free toner that refines and purifies pores. Its Glycolic acid exfoliates dead skin cells to help keep pores unplugged while its botanical-rich formula soothes and hydrates acne-prone skin.

STEP 3: “I just squeeze a pea-sized amount of Repairing Treatment on my palm and spread it on my face,” she adds.

The Repairing Treatment is a feather-light, invisible medicated treatment that kills acne-causing bacteria preventing zits and acne.

Proactiv is available in 30-day kit (P 2,495.00) and 60-day kit (P 3,995.00). It is exclusively distributed at all Watson stores nationwide. Each Proactiv kit comes with a free Refining Mask. This Refining Mask makes a great leave-on spot treatment at night for better complexion in the morning.

Alex was warmly introduced as the new Proactiv brand endoser during a Press Launch last September 29 at Buddha Bar Manila. Says Proactiv Philippines General Manager, Mari del Rosario “We are proud to have Alex Gonzaga as the first Filipina face of Proactiv. She is beautiful, spontaneous, and hip. She fits the brand perfectly. With Alex heading our local campaign, we hope to reach out to more Filipinos and encourage them to take a step and fight acne today.” Welcome aboard, Alex!
