Mother, actress, singer, dancer, and author, Vanessa Williams is one of the most recognized multi-faceted faces in the entertainment industry today. Her face has been seen everywhere from the big screen to the small screen and there in between. Known as one of the most beautiful women in the industry, it is surprising that Williams spent years struggling to feel confident in front of the crowd because of acne breakouts.


It wasn’t until Williams discovered Proactiv’s 3-Step System on an infomercial that she was able to transform her skin and leave worrying about breakouts behind. After almost 10 years of using the product, in 2002, Williams became an official brand spokesperson.

Now, fourteen years later, Williams is reprising her role, with her daughter Sasha Fox by her side, sharing their stories, letting people know why Proactiv is America’s number one acne brand and industry leader in acne skincare.

“People noticed a difference about the way I present myself. I always tell them that it’s because of Proactiv.  When someone compliments me on my skin, I know that the time and effort I put into taking care of my acne has paid off.  It makes me feel really, really good about myself,” comments Sasha in an interview for Proactiv.

“We both started getting acne in middle school, which can be a rough time for most kids,” recalls Williams in the same interview. “The added stress of breakouts was hard for me and I saw that it was beginning to affect Sasha too.” Thanks to her mother’s impressive results and firsthand knowledge of Proactiv, Sasha didn’t have to go far for advice and immediately began using the product as a part of her daily skincare routine.

Vanessa and Sasha will share their personal stories through national TV spots, a digital campaign, and photos, encouraging parents and children to openly discuss acne. Exclusive videos, photos and information on this new campaign are available via all of Proactiv’s social media accounts and via their website at
