Foaming Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Treatment Cleanser™
This is an excellent foaming benzoyl peroxide cleanser for facial acne and an important part of my Back Acne Treatment Kit that treats body acne. This medicated foaming cleanser lifts oil to clean oily skin while delivering its acne medicine deep into your pores, where acne starts.
Benzoyl peroxide kills the acne-causing bacteria C. acnes (formerly called P. acnes). It also unclogs pores to treat blackheads, making it an excellent acne treatment for facial acne, back acne, and other areas of skin with body acne.
This foaming cleanser reaches down deep into your pores to deliver benzoyl peroxide. It also leaves a fine layer of benzoyl peroxide on your skin to treat acne throughout your day.
Directions for use: Apply a generous amount of cleanser to your fingers, a wash cloth, an exfoliating Salux Shower Cloth, Exfoliating Facial Sponge, or your Clarisonic Brush and wash your skin once or twice a day with my Foaming Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Treatment Cleanser. Towel dry skin and follow up with application of your other therapeutic products.
Tips for Success with Dr. Bailey Skin Care Foaming Benzoyl Peroxide Cleanser
Acne is best treated by washing your involved skin twice a day using a therapeutic product such as my Benzoyl Peroxide Cleanser. You can alternate this product with another product, such as my Foaming Acne Treatment Cleanser (with salicylic acid and glycolic acid), Glycolic Acid Face and Body Wash or Calming Zinc Soap (with pyrithione zinc that helps to combat 'fungal acne').
Using an exfoliating cloth or sponge or the Clarisonic Brush Skin Cleansing System will help your cleanser ingredients penetrate deeper into your pores. Increased penetration may also make these ingredients stronger and thus potentially more irritating to your skin.
Please also note, benzoyl peroxide can fade the color in fabric upon contact. Some benzoyl peroxide will be left on your skin when you use the Foaming Benzoyl Peroxide Cleanser. When using this product, wash and rinse treated skin thoroughly with a non-benzoyl peroxide cleanser to reduce the risk of fading or bleaching fabric upon skin contact.
