5 Reasons Why Benzoyl Peroxide is Effective for Acne
Do you struggle with acne? Do you have trouble finding products that clear up your acne? If you answered yes to either of those questions, you’re going to want to read today’s blog post.
It can be so frustrating dealing with stubborn acne, especially when you can’t find any products that are effective in clearing up your acne. Unfortunately, acne is not something that can be cured. But it can be treated so that your skin does not experience too many flare-ups. One of the most popular and effective over-the-counter ingredients for treating acne is benzoyl peroxide, for 5 good reasons.
Reason #1: Benzoyl Peroxide is an Antimicrobial
When a product is antimicrobial, it means that it kills microorganisms or stops their growth. Benzoyl peroxide being an antimicrobial means it helps to reduce the amount of acne-causing bacteria on the skin. And since acne is caused when hair follicles plug with oil and dead skin cells, less bacteria on the skin leads to less breakouts.
Reason #2: Benzoyl Peroxide is an Anti-Inflammatory
Not only does benzoyl peroxide destroy bacteria, it also acts as an anti-inflammatory. This is beneficial because it works to open up pores and decrease inflammation in the skin. Acne can cause many irritations on the skin, one being that it causes inflammation. So, applying benzoyl peroxide to stubborn acne can help the appearance of inflamed lesions.
Reason #3: There are Many Product Types
Benzoyl Peroxide comes in many different product types: gels, creams, cleansers, scrubs, masks, and spot treatments. Our Acne Treatment Gel is a lightweight and fast-acting formula that makes it effective for all skin types, even those with sensitive skin. It is made with micronized benzoyl peroxide as opposed to traditional. Traditional benzoyl peroxide particles are larger than the average human pore, making them less efficient and more irritating. Our specially milled BPO particles are less than 10 microns allowing them to penetrate pores more efficiently to eliminate acne bacteria with less irritation.
Reason #4: Benzoyl Peroxide Helps the Pores Shed Dead Skin Cells and Oil
Since acne is caused by a buildup of oil and dead skin cells, it’s important to make sure your routine contains products that can clean the skin effectively. Starting off with a cleanser that works effectively to remove the oils and dirt accumulated on the skin (like our Glycolic Acid Face Wash) and then following up with a product that contains benzoyl peroxide (like our Acne Treatment Gel) will ensure that your skin stays clear.
Reason #5: It is Effective Against All Kinds of Acne Lesions
Whether you’re dealing with blackheads, whiteheads, or big red pimples, benzoyl peroxide can be a great addition to your skincare routine for its ability to help clear out all kinds of lesions. Since benzoyl peroxide acts as an anti-inflammatory, it’s most effective against acne that is inflamed and red. But it can still help out with any skin symptoms that are related to acne.
