Do High Levels Of Benzoyl Peroxide Work Better?

Posted Sep 20 2009 10:41pm 4 Comments

Eva asks…. just read about a skin care regimen that advises using benzoyl peroxide in very large (3x packaging directions) quantity twice a day. It also advises a gentle cleanser and moisterizer (also in large quantity). They recommended Cetaphil and Neutrogena on the spot acne treatment. Waddaya think?

The Right Brain replies:
Whadda we think? We think if you’ll follow this regimen you’ll be writing back to ask us how to soothe your irritated skin.

Benzoyl peroxide dose

Benzoyl peroxide is effective against acne but increasing the dosage and the frequency of use probably won’t make it more effective. In fact, it’s more likely that it will make your skin dry and irritated. Unless you’ve had a dermatologist advise you to do otherwise, you should stick to the manufacturer’s recommended use directions. Read the label and you’ll see that acne products warn against over use. (One other thing: Remember that BP is available in different concentrations. Large doses of a low concentration won’t be as drying as large doses of a high concentration.)

Here’s a good place
to go for more details on using benzoyl peroxide.

Not All Acne Medicine is the Same

There are many kinds of acne medicine and they all claim to work great. When you buy acne medicine you should look for a product that has several ingredients that work to fight acne. Some of the ingredients that are used don’t only work to get rid of acne but also help in repairing your skin. You should be paying for acne medicine that works because the ingredients are quality and not because a famous person uses it. Acne medicine can make a big difference in your skin if you use it the way it is meant to be used.
