Your first six weeks using proactiv+ a week-by-week guide
It won't happen to everyone, but it is worth mentioning retinization, the adjustment period in which the skin becomes acclimated to Adapalene Gel. During this time skin may become red, flaky and irritated. It is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you use a moisturizer to help relieve symptoms of retinization which typically begin to subside around week 4 of your retinoid treatment.
Your skin is getting acclimated to your new products and adjusting to your daily Proactiv+ routine
You might experience some dryness and slight irritation (Not to worry! This is normal and should subside soon)
Pro Tip: As with any acne product, be sure to use a sunscreen of at least SPF15 every day to keep your skin protected.

Apply a small amount to dampened skin and gently massage with fingertips for 1 to 2 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. Pat dry and follow with Step 2, the Pore Targeting Treatment and Step 3, the Complexion Perfecting Hydrator. If going outside, use a sunscreen.
DAILY AM & PM STEP 2: TREAT PORE TARGETING TREATMENT
For best results: Clean the skin thoroughly with Step 1 Skin Smoothing Exfoliator before applying this product. Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer one to three times daily. Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two or three times daily if needed or as directed by a doctor. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day. If going outside, apply sunscreen after using this product. If irritation or sensitivity develops, stop use of both products and ask a doctor. Follow with Step 3 Complexion Perfecting Hydrator.
DAILY AM & PM STEP 3: REPAIR COMPLEXION PERFECTING HYDRATOR
For best results: Apply Step 3 Complexion Perfecting Hydrator after completing Steps 1 and 2 of the Proactiv+ 3-step system. Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer one to three times daily. Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two or three times daily if needed or as directed by a doctor.

If irritation or sensitivity develops, stop use of both products and ask a doctor.
