What is Benzoyl Peroxide?
Benzoyl peroxide is a well-known ingredient for fighting acne. Commonly found in over-the-counter gels, spot treatments, and cleansers, this ingredient comes in different concentrations for mild to moderate breakouts. Benzoyl peroxide is a type of medication that releases oxygen on the skin to destroy bacteria. It also has anti-inflammatory and comedolytic properties. Benzoyl peroxide works mainly as an exfoliating agent by increasing the turnover of skin regeneration and removes a mixture of dead skin cells and sebum from the skin's pores.
Is Benzoyl Peroxide Good for Acne?
When applied to the skin, benzoyl peroxide works by reducing the amount of acne-causing bacteria by causing the skin to dry and peel. Benzoyl Peroxide is good for a number of various acne conditions:
Benzoyl peroxide works exceeding well on pimples - its anti-inflammatory properties work to reduce pimple inflammation. Using benzoyl peroxide when you feel a pimple starting to emerge can actually prevent the pimple from coming up altogether, or help to reduce the size.
Cystic acne flare-ups can tend to be extremely painful as they are hard bumps filled with pus, hidden below the surface of the skin. Benzoyl peroxide can be used in combination with other acne medications to kill acne-causing bacteria and help reduce inflammation.
Benzoyl peroxide can help to shed dead cells to make scars caused by inflammatory acne breakouts appear less prominent. Because they prevent acne in the first place, using benzoyl peroxide washes and spot treatments help to reduce acne scars.
Who Should Use the Benzoyl Peroxide Wash?
Our BP Active Wash is ideal for those suffering from body and chest acne and can use our benzoyl peroxide wash once or twice a day to help prevent acne breakouts and treat existing acne spots. Because of the strength of benzoyl peroxide in the Benzoyl Peroxide Wash, it can be rough on sensitive skin, and should not be used for the face except in the case of very severe acne.
