It wasn’t too long ago that we were giving Olivia Munn props for her perfect skin. And it wasn’t too long before that the actress was struggling with “weird, cystic [and] painful adult acne” she hadn’t experienced since her teens. But after trying every fix under the sun, the star returned to Proactiv, which had worked for her in her teens — and was so pleasantly surprised by the results that now she’s the skincare line’s new face.
“When I was 16, I moved from Japan to Oklahoma … and I had this horrible outbreak and I never had acne before. On my skin, on my forehead, it was covered in acne and I didn’t know what to do. I’m a new kid in school and so I felt really self-conscious and didn’t really lift my head up until my cousin mentioned it,” Munn told PEOPLE of her first encounter with the treatment. “I hadn’t even heard of Proactiv, and she said, ‘You should just try this.’ I used it and within like a week all of it was gone.”
