Benzoyl Peroxide

Benzoyl peroxide is one of the most popular and well-known OTC acne ingredients! There’s been countless studies that prove its ability to penetrate pores and kill the bacteria strains that create acne- before they even produce pimples. Because it’s an organic acid, it also removes dead skin cells from the skin’s surface. It’s strength is a pro and a con. Clothing bleaching, dryness, and sun sensitivity are side effects of benzoyl peroxide. 

Benefits: Eliminating acne is this organic acid’s main game and it’s absolutely wonderful at doing so. It also improves skin texture and helps reduce oil production.

Skin Types: Acne prone oily skin suits benzoyl peroxide’s profile the best! Even if this skin type describes you perfectly, you shouldn’t apply it more than twice a day and should always use it in conjunction with sunscreen and a moisturizer.
