Quick Quiz: How did Jessica Simpson Get Clear Skin?

I'm guessing that Jessica Simpson is having a rough week, considering the reports that her new movie, Blonde Ambition, is heading straight to DVD. At least she still has clear skin, right? Can you guess how she went from a blemished to peaches 'n' cream complexion?


Quick Quiz: How did Jessica Simpson Get Clear Skin?

What did Jessica Simpson first use to clear up her skin?

That crap gave me a wicked chemical burn, Neutrogena makes a great scrub with cucumber I use that now.

She is misleading because usually after you use accutane it clears your skin for life. Pro-active might improve your skin but you will never have Jessica's skin unless you have a treatment like accutane!

Wow. That is pretty bad. I used Proactive too and it did nothing for me. I'm even madder now that I know I was lied to!

I tried proactiv about 3 or 4 years ago. It made my skin burn and made me break out in this ugly rash only my jawline. I called the customer care line and they offered me the advice that, "It gets worse before it gets better." Well, it never really got better, until I stopped using it. I had pretty clear skin for a while...during my pregnancy with my son and after my skin was great. Lately I've been breaking out again so I thought try something out. I tried the new Clinique 3 step facial cleansing system and my face got worse. I've been using it now for about a month and a half....Anyone had the same issue?

Maybe JS used the accutane in HS to get rid of most of it and now uses ProActive to keep her face clear? I dunno. I was pretty lucky to have clear skin in highschool, but got REALLY bad acne as soon as I moved to a more humid climate. I tried a few over the counter products and couldnt find anything that worked. It just made it worse! Then I tried ProActive and it worked! It didnt dry out my skin or make it red or anything! I found that the commercials were true! After about a week I really did notice a difference and I used it for about a year! I dont use it anymore and I still have an occasional breakout, but NOT like before. Thank God!

Proactiv didn't work for me. It dried me out really badly and made my skin worse. I have been getting facials on a monhtly basis and using cosmedix which was recommended by my aesthetician. Between the facials and the cosmetics I am close to being broke but my skin is clearing up and looking much much much better!

Jessica is sooo dumb. She can't act, or sing. And on top of that she is a liar. Proactive doesn't work anyways. Don't waste your time and money people!

She says on the infomercial that her skin wasnt clear until she used Proactive. I'm so sure Guthey Ranker wasn't happy she was talking about Accutane. Cindy Crawford promotes Meaningful Beauty Anti aging but tells the press she's had plastic surgery for years.

Celebreties shoudn't sell products like that if they used other products beforehand. It's a total lie :(

Boo, talk about serious misrepresentation on Guthy-Renker AND JS' parts. Shame shame shame.

Holy crap, Sandee! My derm wanted to put me on Accutane when I was in high school, but I had a really bad feeling about it so I've never done it. Your story makes me super glad about that. With my luck all the negative stuff that my friends kept telling me "never really happens" would have happened to me! And I guess that's why Proactiv never worked for me - I wasn't taking the necessary Accutane beforehand. :oy: Nice, Jessica, real nice. Ya freaking liar.

If she used accutane then why did she say that proactive cleared her skin! i am confused!

BE CAREFUL WITH ACCUTANE!! I took Accutane about 8 years ago when I was in high school. While it worked great for me, I was the unfortunate recipient of a rare side effect that almost KILLED me. It caused a very swift swelling of my brain which was immensely painful. I went into a fit of vomiting right in the middle of a choir concert and blacked out. I luckily was taken to the hospital quick enough where they were able to control the swelling, otherwise they would have had to CUT MY SKULL OPEN to alleviate the pressure but had high risks of brain damage, infection and death. That's a lot to go thru for clear skin!!

That is false advertising on her part for Proactive.

I hated Pro-Active. I turned so red! The smell of their cleanser is really gross.

I'm glad I read this. Although I'm allergic to benzoyl peroxide (which sucks!) I was going to try out my sister's Pro-Active to see if it would have even the slightest affect. Now that I've actually realized (which I should have already) how much commercials lie, I definately won't even attempt. For all I know I could have ended up in the hospital...(for nothing!). I've been using Aveeno's Clear Complexion Daily Moisturizer. I absolutely love it!
