Benzoyl peroxide belittles acne-causing bacteria, inflammation, clogged pores and rosacea. It will also reduce pimples and blackheads. Technically speaking, this antiseptic reduces bacteria on your skin and causes it to dry and peel. Not only will this help against acne and rosacea, but it can also be prescribed against dark spots and acne scarring since dead skin cells will shed and make dark spots and scars less visible.
Say bye-bye to bacteria and dead, unwanted skin.
