    Treating your Acne with Benzoyl Peroxide

    Benzoyl peroxide is one of the most frequently used acne treatment medications. Benzoyl peroxide is an active ingredient in countless over-the-counter products available on the market today. One of the first proven treatments for acne, it has been used for decades and is still one of the most popular and successful treatments for acne. Benzoyl peroxide works by introducing oxygen into the pore, thereby killing Propionibacteria acnes. When the bacteria population is reduced, the number of breakouts on the skin is reduced as well.

    Acne Treatment Tips for Using Benzoyl Peroxide

    Use Benzoyl Peroxide exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Benzoyl peroxide makes really effective treatment for mild to moderate acne. Start with a lotion or gel in a 2.5% strength. Higher percentages are available but may irritate the skin. Start with a lower strength to allow your skin to become acclimated to the benzoyl peroxide treatments. Move up to a higher strength if results are not seen after several weeks. Benzoyl peroxide must be applied to all affected areas of the skin, as it works to stop pimples before they erupt.
  • Benzoyl Peroxide Feedback

    "For a while I was trying to move away from using Benzoyl Peroxide products, but the simple truth is that I can't seem to get my skin anywhere close to clear without it. I used PC 2% BP for quite a while, but I wanted to try something a little stronger. Now I'm pretty happy with the DDF Benzoyl Peroxide Gel 5%; it doesn't dry me out any more than the 2.5% I used to have, and even though it looks like a lotion, it dries clear and not white, so I can use it during the day if I want. It's inexpensive, though, and doesn't have a ton of extra ingredients to potentially bother my skin, so I'll probably keep using it unless I ever find anything that works better for me than benzoyl peroxide." - Brenda (US)
    "I owe a lot to Benzyl Peroxide 5%. It's one of the first products that actually worked & helped me on my way to clear skin. I can't recommend it enough. It's better if you start with a little & gradually increase to see how much you should use as it is extremely drying. Once you work out how much your skin needs you will see your skin start to clear up usually only after a day or two! It's a winner!" - Jennifer (US)

Benzoyl peroxide can bleach clothing and linens; make sure your skin is completely dry before touching any cloth!

    Benzoyl peroxide is intended for external use only. Refrain from letting benzoyl peroxide get into your eyes, nose, or mouth, and do not swallow it. Do not apply dressings, bandages, cosmetics, lotions, or other skin medications to the area being treated unless your doctor tells you. Keep benzoyl peroxide away from your hair and coloured fabrics because it may bleach them. Do not let anyone else use your medication. Tell your doctor if your skin condition gets worse or does not go away. It's important for you to keep a written list of all of the prescription and over-the-counter medicines you're taking, as well as any products such as vitamins, minerals, or other dietary supplements.
    Benzoyl peroxide may bleach hair, towels, and clothing. Take great care during and after application to avoid letting it come in contact with any of these materials. You may want to wear an old shirt if benzoyl peroxide is applied to the back or body. Let the lotion dry thoroughly after your nightly skin care treatments before getting into bed at night, to avoid bleaching your pillowcase.
