Ingredient Spotlight: Benzoyl Peroxide

Benzoyl Peroxide, a strong, acne-fighting ingredient, has long been the go-to for targeting and treating breakouts. Though powerful, it can actually be so effective at drying and clearing breakouts that it leads to over-drying the skin, causing dehydration and irritation. Knowing when and how often to use Benzoyl Peroxide is key to keeping your skin balanced.

Benzoyl Peroxide kills acne-causing bacteria and clears dead skin cells from follicles. Strength of this ingredient varies anywhere from 2-10%, but according to the American Academy of Dermatology, studies show higher concentrations don't necessarily yield better results. Since Benzoyl Peroxide can be drying to the skin, it’s not recommended for regular, long-term use. It can even bleach your sheets and towels, so be careful when applying.

Do we need to avoid this ingredient? Not at all! It is a proven and effective acne-fighting ingredient when used properly. As new breakouts arise, apply a Benzoyl Peroxide cream, like Clear Skin Spot Treatment, daily as a spot treatment. If your skin becomes irritated, reduce use. When the breakout heals, discontinue use.
