Why Benzoyl Peroxide Is A Must For Zapping Acne

Get rid of those pus-filled pimples by adding Benzoyl Peroxide into your skin routine.


We hate pimples. Especially those red or large pus-filled ones that are raring to cause pain and scaring to your face. If you’re an acne sufferer, you might know a little guy called Benzoyl Peroxide. I say little, Benzoyl Peroxide is one of the most well-known ingredients that helps to fight acne and often comes in a range of strengths. It can be found in the majority of prescribed and sometimes over the counter products.  

According to Healthline, Benzoyl Peroxide prevents acne by killing the nasty bacteria that lies underneath the skin, as well as reducing excess sebum (oil) and helps pores shed dead skin cells. Benzoyl can be found in several acne treatments, from creams and lotions, face washes and foams, to soaps and gels. Selecting the right treatment for your skin can be difficult, but this is one of the most important steps to ensuring the product can perform at its best.  

You may also know that Benzoyl can stain clothing, hair, towels and pretty much anything it can encounter after application. Depending on your type of acne, it may be best to stick to this product as part of your night-time routine, this way your favourite clothes are less likely to be stained. Benzoyl Peroxide has been noted as one of the most effective acne treatments on the market, but most products take at least six weeks, so be prepared to take note of changes in your skin in those six weeks. Acne pushes our patience, self-esteem and confidence, but there are treatments out there that can help.  

We believe in you, so trust the process.
