NEW YORK, March 5, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Marcus Scribner is a triple threat: actor, humanitarian and soon-to-be college student. From starring as Andre Jr. on ABC's hit show Black-ish to serving as the Chief Youth Innovator for the Reserve Protection Agency in South Africa – all while maintaining his honor student status – Marcus is clearly not your typical teenager. He does, however, experience typical teenager woes like endless homework, parent-enforced curfews, and acne. While homework and curfews are out of his control, taking care of his unwanted acne is not- which is why Marcus, a current Proactiv user, was thrilled to join the Proactiv Spokesperson lineup.
No thanks to long shoot days, heavy makeup, and constant travel, Marcus unfortunately began struggling with acne while working on his hit television sitcom Black-ish. Luckily for Marcus, who was 14 at the time, his parents made the decision to have him try Proactiv, which has worked wonders for his skin.
Marcus said, "Because of my busy film schedule, I didn't have time to go see a dermatologist. I started out on Proactiv+® back then, so naturally I wanted the newest and greatest thing. I asked my parents to get me ProactivMD® to try. It contains Adapalene – this acne-fighting ingredient that used to only be available by prescription and it really works! I don't know much about skincare, but I know that ProactivMD has worked for me and I'm totally going to continue to use it!"
Jennifer Donnellan, The Proactiv Company's Chief Operating Officer and General Manager, ad interim said, "We are so thrilled to have Marcus, who uses and trusts ProactivMD, as the newest face in our iconic roster of brand representatives. Marcus is an amazing emerging young talent who is authentic, charismatic and not to mention, funny! We're looking to him to help us forge our way into having outstanding digital-first content that can resonate with his fan base. Proactiv's Combination Therapy approach has served millions in their search for a healthy skincare regimen for over 20 years. It is very exciting to now be able to provide consumers with ProactivMD, the only combination therapy solution that contains Adapalene, an advanced retinoid that was until recently only available by prescription." Marcus, a real Proactiv user who just so happens to be on a hit television show, is playing a critical role in the development of unique digital content for the brand.
