Frequently Asked Questions

The NHS advises that benzoyl peroxide normally works within 4 weeks of treatment, so you should see the improvement you’re looking for within that time.

 

After this, you may want to carry on using your treatment to prevent breakouts in future, offering a long term solution to your acne.

How long you should leave benzoyl peroxide on your skin will depend on the treatment you’re using.

 

If you’re using a benzoyl peroxide gel, you may need to leave the treatment on so it can work but if you’re using a wash gel you’ll usually need to rinse it off after a minute or two.

 

The best thing you can do is check the information that comes with your treatment, as it will explain exactly how long you need to leave it to do its thing and whether you’ll need to wash the treatment off afterwards.

Bezoyl peroxide works as an antiseptic, killing bacteria or germs on the surface of your skin.

 

By keeping these bacteria under control, these treatments help to reduce breakouts caused by Propionibacterium acne, one of the most common acne types.

 

This means that benzoyl peroxide isn’t just an effective treatment for breakouts that have already happened, but can be used over time to prevent further breakouts.

Acne is a skin condition that’s especially common in children and young adults.

 

Acne happens when the glands in the surface of your skin start to produce too much of an oil named sebum, which can clog your follicles, causing spots, whiteheads, blackheads, and more.

 

Acne can be mild, causing just a few spots and blackheads, but can range all the way to severe acne, which can cause large, painful papules, cysts, and nodules on top of everything else.

 

Although people think acne is all about breakouts of spots, there are a couple of other symptoms you may experience when you have acne, including oily skin, or skin that’s sore or hot to touch.
