Dermatologist Dr. Andrea Tomizawa comments, "Using a mask weekly is the perfect addition to your regular routine, especially a mask that contains sulfur, which helps with reducing oil. It will ensure that breakouts are kept at bay, and help with unblocking pores and removing impurities" The Proactiv Skin Purifying Mask works to produce visible results so that acne sufferers can enjoy new-found glamour and celebrate being blemish free.

Review: The Proactiv Skin Purifying Mask has been formulated for particularly oily and acne prone skin; I predominantly have an oily t-zone so I used a very thin layer, of the mask, on this specific location along with using the product as a spot treatment. After using the mask I saw immediate clearness and a reduction in oil and as I continued using the mask, weekly, I found that my t-zone pores are unblocked and less visible. As a spot treatment the Proactiv Skin Purifying Mask is amazing – I use a cotton bud to apply the mask directly to the spot at night and when I wake in the morning the spot is barely visible – only one application is required, #miracle.

Question: How has Proactiv changed, recently?

Dr Andrea Tomizawa: Moving away from the subscription model it once was, Proactiv is now available in Pharmacies and Myer Australia wide, so more women can access the dermatologically tested products.


Question: Why is it important that we add a face mask to our beauty routine?

Proactiv: A face mask can be an effective addition to your weekly skin routine, to help deliver important ingredients to the skin surface to help reduce inflammation, infection, and oil production. This in turn can prevent the development of pimples in people with acne-prone skin.

Ingredients that provide a deep-cleansing action to facial skin may cause unwanted irritation and excessive dryness if applied every day to facial skin. So an easy-to-use face mask can help to deliver these key ingredients and cut down on to promote skin renewal and restore the natural skin barrier.


Question: How often should we be using face masks?

Proactiv: Every person's skin is unique, so how often you apply a face mask depends on your skin type.

For patients with oily skin, a deep-cleansing sulfur-based face mask can be applied up to three times a week. For patients with a dry or combination skin, once a week may be sufficient to provide the benefits and avoid unwanted irritation.
