ORCHARD PARK, N.Y., March 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- OXY®, a trusted skin care brand for over 40 years, today launched the OXY® 28 Day Challenge to provide teens with accurate and realistic tools to clear acne-prone skin. While many skin care brands unrealistically promise fast and easy results, OXY® knows that truly effective acne treatment is an ongoing, regimented process that takes time. In fact, dermatologists agree that it can typically take up to 4 weeks using acne treatments to effectively clear skin.
"Acne is difficult to deal with at any time, but becomes even more of a concern during prom season," says Erick Estrada, Mentholatum Director of Marketing for Acne Skin Care. "We want to make sure students know that OXY® has an effective regimen to get clear skin in time for such a BIG day."
OXY® is the first over-the-counter brand acne product to offer a free iOS and Android smartphone app to help teens clear their skin through a tailored regimen. The app features:
- Personalized, dermatologist approved acne skin care regimen
- Daily tips to help maximize treatment results
- Daily alerts to ensure that treatment stays on track
- Ability to take before, during and after pictures to show progress

OXY® acne medication has a variety of effective and easy to use forms like pads, face washes and a spot treatment, formulated with clinically proven acne-fighting ingredients, such as benzoyl peroxide (#1 active ingredient recommended by dermatologists) and salicylic acid, to help clear even the most stubborn acne. The products are designed for teens and can be used for various skin types.
"Prom is an important milestone for teens and the photos captured will resurface for years to come," said Erick Estrada. "That's why we're launching the challenge now – to help teens look their best for prom season. We are so confident in both our products and the OXY® 28 Day Challenge that we are offering a money back guarantee."
