Salicylic Acid & Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Medicines
Nature’s Cure combines the power of proven treatments – salicylic acid and Benzoyl Peroxide acne medicines - with the gentleness of natural ingredients for acne products that are tough on acne, but easy on your skin. Both salicylic acid and Benzoyl Peroxide acne medications are considered to be among the best over-the-counter acne medicines available because they treat existing blemishes and also help to prevent new acne from forming. Nature’s Cure offers a complete line of acne treatments with either salicylic acid or Benzoyl Peroxide acne medicine as an active ingredient. Learn more about each of these excellent acne-fighting ingredients below.
Benzoyl Peroxide acne medicine destroys P. acnes, the bacteria that cause acne inflammation, and rids the skin of excess oil and dead skin cells that can clog pores. It is important to use Benzoyl Peroxide acne medicine everywhere you tend to break out, not just on existing pimples, as the pore-clogging
process can start weeks in advance. Although highly effective, some people have a sensitivity to Benzoyl Peroxide acne medicine when it is first used. If you’ve never used a Benzoyl Peroxide acne product before, start with a small amount and slowly increase your application from once daily to several times per day as your skin adjusts to the Benzoyl Peroxide acne medicine. If you follow this gradual process, you can avoid excess irritation and still get acne-free skin. Nature’s Cure includes soothing botanicals in all of their Benzoyl Peroxide acne products to help counteract the Benzoyl Peroxide acne medicine’s drying effects. Also, take care to wash your hands and avoid getting the product on towels or clothes as Benzoyl Peroxide acne products can bleach fabrics.
Salicylic Acid slows the over-shedding of cells so pores remain clear, and helps un-block blackheads and whiteheads to speed healing and prevent new pimples from forming. Also an exfoliant, salicylic acid promotes skin cell turnover and rejuvenates skin for a radiant complexion. Though Benzoyl Peroxide acne products are generally considered most effective, salicylic acid products have an advantage over Benzoyl Peroxide acne products in that even those with more sensitive skin can usually tolerate salicylic acid (though it is always a good idea to test your skin with a small amount at first.) As such, salicylic acid products can be used regularly by those with sensitive skin the over-drying that might occur with Benzoyl Peroxide acne products. And, unlike Benzoyl Peroxide acne products, salicylic acid products do not stain or bleach fabrics.
