All About Benzoyl Peroxide

Benzoyl Peroxide is popular among dermatologists and aestheticians as a treatment for mild to moderate acne. Acne is a skin condition that can be found anywhere on the body, but is most common on the face. Acne appears red and swollen and can be very unsightly. For people who have it benzoyl peroxide is a possible treatment.

Benzoyl peroxide is offered over the counter in any number of different products with varying levels of concentration. Depending on your skin type you will want a higher or lower level of benzoyl peroxide to see best results.

Benzoyl peroxide is typically applied topically to the effected area over the course of several months. It is not uncommon for acne to look worse before it gets better with this type of treatment as the bacteria is forced to the surface.
