Adam Levine reveals secret to his confidence



Who is Adam Levine:
He is the lead singer of the Grammy Award winning band, Maroon 5, and has made a name for himself with a signature voice that is sure to sweep women off their feet. Maroon 5’s releases have gone gold and platinum, setting records for most #1 singles and he’s been a judge on the Emmy Award-winning The Voice. He also starred in the indie film Begin Again, where his 222 Records label track Lost Stars was nominated for a Best Original Song at the Academy Awards. 

While most women are swooned by the “Sexiest Man Alive” of 2013 with his hot looks and remarkable talent, men also aspire for the same kind of charisma and confidence that he evokes. Little do they know that like most of us, Adam Levine struggled to regain confidence during his teenage years. He suffered from severe acne breakouts, which took away much of his confidence and forced him to stay away from the crowd. 

“I was just ashamed of my acne,” Adam shared. “I had horrible breakouts. I would hide from cameras, hide in my room. Acne just shows up and causes trouble and it messes with my confidence.” And even today, when his schedule gets busy, the stress can take a toll on his skin. “I am a very active person and it kind of lead to zits, which is unfortunate but a reality for me,” he chuckled. 

“My life for now is unbelievably busy and I feel fortunate and blessed every day,” Adam said. He also shared that unlike most people’s belief about celebrities having to look so good on screen or otherwise, they also suffer from the same skin problems that make many people lose their self-confidence and hide away from many of the good things in life. “I always want to make sure that people understand that even though we are celebrities or successful, we are no different than anybody else.” 

Fortunately, America’s #1 acne treatment system, Proactiv Solution, gave him the answer to his acne
problems. 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 so great that there is
something out there now, that is legitimate,” Adam added. 

It takes no more than five minutes to complete this system, which is great for busy people like Adam
Levine. It starts with the application of Step 1, the Renewing Cleanser, which contains Benzoyl Peroxide to help kill acne-causing bacteria. The ultra-fine, micro-crystal BPO penetrates pores fast while being gentle on the skin and tiny exfoliating beads help to unclog the pores of impurities, such as excess sebum, keratin and dead skin cells.

Step 2 is the Proactiv Revitalizing Toner which refines and purifies pores through gentle exfoliation. It contains soothing botanicals to gently remove excess oil for refreshed, clear skin.

Step 3, the Repairing Lotion, is a treatment that helps to heal breakouts and prevent new ones emphasized. “You have got to take these steps if you want to take care of your skin,” Adam Finally, “It has your skin in mind and in fact a lot of it is restorative and healthy, which is great.” 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, reaches deep into the pores where blemishes begin. The Refining Mask unclogs pores, pampers inflamed skin, and softens the skin’s texture. 

Now with clear skin, Adam Levin no longer feels the need to hide. “It is game changer; it treats acne and treats your skin right,” Adam said. “As a guy, I don’t like a lot of male acne products. But with this, its three easy steps and you’re doing all you need to do.”

Benzoyl Peroxide - Best Acne Treatment

Benzoyl Peroxide (BPO) has been known to be a compound that fights acne from getting worse. What most people are afraid of are the misconceptions that surrounds it, such as, “your skin gets addicted to it” and more popularly, “quitting its application will make acne faster and with a vengeance”. These are 
just some of the reasons why people tend to shy away from a relatively cheaper and effective way in treating acne. The only probable and logical reason to avoid BPO is having an allergic reaction to it.

To better understand why people should have it as an option for acne treatment, an understanding on how it works, what it does, and how to use it properly, should take away all the misconceptions that surrounds BPO. 

Acne happens when a pore blocked by excess keratin, sebum, and dead skin cells comes in contact with bacteria which cause the inflammation. What BPO does is that it breaks down into benzoic acid and oxygen, and the oxygen acts as a free radical destroying the cells that blocks the pores along with the 
bacteria growing on it. During the early stages of acne formation, BPO is known to be effective in preventing these outbreaks on the skin.

The BPO scare however, comes from its misuse. Having too much of it on the skin, making sure that the acne-causing bacteria is eliminated from the surface, gives the skin unnecessary stress than protection. That stress leaves the skin more vulnerable to more acne outbreaks after quitting from BPO treatment.

Using BPO the right way, meaning more strategically, on skin could help drastically minimize the formation of acne and prevent future outbreaks. Fortunately, America’s #1 acne treatment system, 
Proactiv Solution, offers a 3-Step System that is developed and recommended by dermatologists. This skin care regimen helps clear existing acne and prevents future outbreaks while gently taking care of the skin.

It only takes no more than five minutes to do this 3-Step System, starting with the application of Proactiv Renewing Cleanser that has Benzoyl Peroxide that kills acne-causing bacteria. It has ultra-fine micro-crystal BPO that penetrates pores fast while being gentle on the skin. Tiny, round exfoliating beads unclog the pores of impurities, such as excess sebum, keratin, and dead skin cells.

Next is applying alcohol-free Proactiv Revitalizing Toner which refines and purifies pores, exfoliating the skin further by removing more dead skin cells and keeps pores unclogged. It also has soothing botanicals that gently balance the skin tone, removes excess oil for a refreshed, clear skin.

Finally, Proactiv Repairing Lotion is an as-light-as-feather treatment that heals the blemishes off the skin and also helps in preventing new acne from forming. Each Proactiv kit comes with a free Refining Mask that makes sure to keep skin clear and acne-free. Formulated with sulfur, a proven acne-fighting ingredient, reaches deep into the pores where blemishes begin. The Refining Mask unclogs pores, 
pampers inflamed skin, and softens the skin’s texture.

And besides, Proactiv has only 2.5% of BPO, which is lower than other over-the-counter acne treatments so it is safer to use daily. Moreover, at this concentration level BPO can already effectively kill acne-causing bacteria so there’s really no cause for worries--really.

So not be afraid of whatever misconceptions BPO has and set your skin free from acne. Use it strategically, and you will never have to worry about acne again.


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.

Proactiv Success Stories

Let me share with you several success stories of real Filipino users of Proactiv by citing their testimonials as examples, and linking to their uploaded videos.

Acne Creates Wall
When you have acne, you tend to avoid social events and you shy away from situations where your skin is the spotlight and makes you stop doing the things you love with the people you love. Acne influences your self-esteem, self-confidence, your outlook in general and your social life. Even mild breakouts can negatively impact how you feel about yourself. Acne truly affects more than just your skin. It can affect your entire life in very real ways.


Reclaim Control Over your Skin with Proactiv!
Gladly, there’s Proactiv! Proactiv Solution is the only acne management system which combines medicated ingredients that work together to treat and control acne. It uses several different ingredients in one system to treat the blemishes you have now and help keep new ones from forming. With Proactiv, you’ll get back control over your skin.
