Ignore the mean-spirited answer above -- that person clearly gets pleasure out of putting others down. There is nothing wrong with your question.

Actually, you're smart to be asking questions about ProActiv. It is not a great solution for acne, because of all the incredibly irritating ingredients. It will not directly cause skin cancer, but it does include benzoyl peroxide, which increases skin's sensitivity to sunlight, so it is even more important that you use a good sunscreen (SPF 15 or higher) when using ProActiv.

It also will not cause wrinkles, but because it can be overly severe, irritating, and drying, it certainly won't help fight off wrinkles. For that, you need a good moisturizer like Olay, Paula's Choice, Clinique, or something like that. Your moisturizer should have tons of antioxidants. Antioxidants and sunscreen are the only way to fight off wrinkles.

Hope this helps! Source(s): _The Beauty Bible_, skin care research in dermatology journals
