- Benzoyl peroxide is a longstanding, clinically proven acne fighter. It works by detoxing the pore from the inside out while drying up excess sebum, the favorite “food” of acne-causing bacteria.
Apply one pump of lotion evenly across clean, dry skin, avoiding the eyes, nose, and mouth. Let it absorb fully before applying any other products in your routine.
Drying and peeling are normal side effects of using benzoyl peroxide. If you find it too irritating, cut back your use of this product to every other day until your skin adjusts.
Benzoyl peroxide makes all skin tones susceptible to sun damage, so don’t forget to apply sunscreen every day.
While benzoyl peroxide’s bleaching properties won’t affect your skin tone, they will damage your linens and bedding. Whenever benzoyl peroxide is a part of your skin-care routine—especially when it’s found in high concentrations, like in this lotion—we suggest using old pillowcases and towels.
