benzoyl peroxide for acne pimples nyc new york ny

Benzoyl peroxide is a terrific treatment for acne which was developed in Canada. It can be used as a spot treatment if you get very occasional acne, but works even better preventatively if you apply it to the whole face daily (if you can tolerate it), or 2-3 times per week to the full face. Because it is drying (as are many acne treatments), make sure to use a mild cleanser, and to moisturize your face. Also best to speak with your dermatologist about the best treatment options for your acne.
