Proactiv Solution Daily Oil Control

Proactiv Solution, skin careOily skin brings to mind unpleasant images of blackheads, pimples, acne and overall poor skin condition and I am sure that it has been a perennial problem for a lot of people. Oily complexion, after all, was not just the reason for many a number of embarrassing photographs where our foreheads seemed to be bigger than they actually were because of the unwanted shine, but is also the root of breakouts as well as other ugly skin episodes and the hot and humid Philippine weather only aggravates this skin condition.

I am certain that if we will be given a solution that can eliminate all our oily skin woes, a lot of people will grab the chance. Well then here’s good news for all those who have been suffering from oily complexion. Proactiv came out with a revolutionary product that will allow you to say goodbye to your oily skin and say hello to healthier fairer skin!

Daily Oil Control in a nutshell

Proactiv Solution’s Daily Oil Control, a breakthrough facial lotion, is created to give a more mattified appearance while helping the skin to fight acne by eliminating shine and absorbing excess oil. It also helps keep skin to remain hydrated and feeling soft and smooth without the greasy feel or look. Just a thin layer of Daily Oil Control reduces excess facial oil to help balance the skin’s natural oil level and get rid of the shine. It helps add moisture to the skin without the greasy after-feel. It also helps control oil, as well as the production of sebum that causes skin imperfections and clog pores. In addition, it even helps prevent make-up from streaking throughout the day. Formulated with Decylene Glycol, known to be a highly-effective moisturizer and oil controller, along with Silicone blend that provides a moisture barrier to soothe, hydrate and soften skin, and Nylon-12, which absorbs excess oil and provides anti-shine properties, Daily Oil Control is highly recommended for men and women with oily skin.

Daily Oil Control also complements the Proactiv 3-Step System all you have to do is use it after Repairing Treatment by applying a thin layer to the entire face using your fingertips.
