More Information

Apply a thin layer of the gel to the affected area after washing it with warm water and a mild cleanser each evening, or twice a day if advised.

Acne is frequently caused by an accumulation of oil in the pores, which causes the pores to become clogged. Benzoyl Peroxide gel (often marketed as Acnecide) works by breaking down keratin in the skin structure to help reduce the production of this oil. This, in turn, dissolves blackheads and whiteheads, unclogs acne-causing pores, and exfoliates dead skin cells from the skin’s surface.

Because Benzoyl Peroxide gel kills the bacteria that cause acne, it can help prevent future acne flare-ups and reduce inflammation in the affected area. You can buy Benzoyl peroxide on Meds for Less.

It can take up to four weeks to see an improvement in your skin, so it is critical to stick with the treatment and keep track of your progress. Trying the acne treatment for 12 weeks will allow you to determine whether or not it has made a significant difference in your acne.

Because the gel can dry out the affected area, it’s best to use it only at night if you have sensitive skin. It may also be worth reducing the frequency of application to once every other day until your skin adjusts.

You can buy Benzoyl Peroxide in both 30g and 60g tubes. 30g tubes will last approximately 8 weeks and 60g tubes will last approximately 16 weeks.

Some patients may experience side effects from Benzoyl Peroxide gel, as they do with many medications. The most common side effects are a mild burning sensation, dryness, redness, and peeling of the skin in the treated areas. It’s also worth noting that the gel has the potential to bleach the hair (as well as towels and bed linen).

Because the treatment is likely to increase sensitivity to sunlight, sunbeds, or sunlamps, it is critical to use a factor sunscreen.

See the patient information leaflet for a complete list of side effects and how to use it correctly.

Benzoyl Peroxide gel should not be used if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
