Teen Superstar Zendaya Announced As X Out® Brand Advocate

The multi-talented artist shares how she beat breakouts in just one easy step

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Feb. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Actress, singer, author and dancer Zendaya shakes up how she sees her acne routine with X Out, from the makers of Proactiv®. Designed as the anti-hassle, anti-drama, anti-breakout all-in-one Wash-In Treatment, Zendaya's busy lifestyle and exuberant personality make her the perfect spokesperson for the acne line designed for people who are too busy to deal with doctor visits, complicated routines, or other time-consuming acne treatments with sometimes less than stellar results.


Zendaya began experiencing breakouts on her back and shoulders while appearing on "Dancing With the Stars." The sweat and stress became constant triggers for her blemishes and after a long day of practicing and performing, her mind was on recovery rather than on her skincare routine. She turned to X Out to help her achieve clear, beautiful skin in just one simple step.

"X Out is so easy to use! I can quickly wash my face and body and know that all of that good-for-you medicine will do its job so I can focus on my passions instead of being self-conscious about how my skin looks." said Zendaya. "X Out has helped me keep up my confidence and I know it can help anyone who would rather have fun than worry about blemishes. If you want clear, seriously good-looking skin, X Out is for you."

X Out contains the proven acne fighting power of 8.5% benzoyl peroxide along with smooth beads to help exfoliate dead skin cells and a moisturizing complex designed to help protect and soothe the skin.  Perfect as a face wash, body wash, spot treatment or all-over mask, the formula contains essential fatty acids and other humectants that help protect the skin and provide the moisture it needs to look its best for selfies, first dates, college graduation and everything in between.

Zendaya adds the exciting partnership with X Out to her already impressive list of accomplishments.  The 17-year-old is not only a successful recording artist and actress but was the youngest contestant to ever appear on the popular dancing competition show "Dancing With The Stars." Zendaya also authored her first book "Between U and Me: How to Rock Your Tween Years with Style and Confidence" in 2013.

Zendaya recently wrapped her first X Out shoot and will be appearing in national TV commercials and digital campaigns for the brand throughout 2014.

As an added bonus, Zendaya is also giving her large social following known as Zswaggers and X Out fans a behind-the-scenes look into her commercial shoot through exclusive original content available soon on X Out's social channels.
