Say Goodbye to Acne

Proactiv Solution kiosk is Trinoma
Medical text books defines acne as a disease of the hair follicles of the face, chest, and back that affects almost all males and females during puberty. It is not caused by bacteria, although bacteria play a role in its evelopment. It is not unusual for some women to develop acne in their mid- to late-20s.

In my book, it is something that I squirm to recall having. You see, acne is the worst thing that I ever experienced during my college years. It has been an everyday ordeal for me on how to hide it (as if I can) or pretend I don't have it whenever I go out with friends and meet new acquiantances.  Actually, it might have been acne that caused bits of feeling of inferiority that I had then.

Well, good thing I survived it and can talk about it candidly the way I am writing about it now.  What made me blog about this topic is because I have a nephew in high school whose face is prone to acne.

But kids these days are just lucky to have innovative and effective anti-acne products that are made available by Proactiv Solution.

I was in Trinoma a couple of weeks ago and had a chance to talk to the saleslady of the Proactiv kiosk there and she was kind enough to discuss the Proactiv family of products.
