Olivia Munn Proves Proactiv Isn’t Just for Teens

We love Olivia Munn’s girl-next-door aesthetic, but it turns out she’s shared the same skin woes as everyone else growing up, making her the perfect fit as the new face of Proactiv+.

Like every teen who faces a few blemishes, Munn experienced quite a few breakouts as she tried to adjust to life in Oklahoma after moving from Japan. Thankfully her family provided the simple solution. “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,” she told People. “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.”

While her skin stayed flawless for quite a while, the breakouts returned when she stepped on set for Deliver Us from Evil with Eric Bana. The acne prompted her to try every treatment under the sun, including pills, acupuncture, and steroid injections which can cause skin craters if done improperly.

She came back to the skincare brand at the suggestion of her agent and was surprised at how fast the new formula worked. “Within two weeks it was completely cleared up and I haven’t had a breakout again,” she explained. “So when I got the call [from Proactiv]… It’s so crazy because I have this whole story with it. It was nice. It’s something that’s very easy to get behind because I know what it did for me in my life.”

It’s great to see Munn join the mostly musically-inclined Proactiv family, which includes flawless face like Adam Levine, Katy Perry, Naya Rivera, and Julianne Hough, to name a few. Congrats, Olivia!
