Acne has always been an irritating issue for all ages, be it as young as a little toddler, to a determined 80-year-old granny who continues to fight against this terrible disease. It was not until the 1980s where research found out benzoyl peroxide, a topical acne treatment that is found to work amazingly well against acne. Since then, acne treatment using benzoyl peroxide has been a sort of household first-aid like.
Times have changed, the medical resource has improved, so now the question is, is acne treatment using benzoyl peroxide still an ‘AMAZING’ acne treatment?
I shall come straight to the point, my opinion is that, for ‘normal’ benzoyl peroxide acne treatment, it will provide a quick, fast and immediately aid against acne. However, when it comes to long term acne treatment, benzoyl peroxide still has a long way to go.
Acne treatment using benzoyl peroxide involves killing bacteria, helps in inflammation and also unclog pores.
Everyone knows that for topical acne treatment like benzoyl peroxide, there is always a shortcoming. And this shortcoming comes from how benzoyl peroxide actually works against acne. And that is
DRYINGup your skin!
By drying up your skin, benzoyl peroxide kills bacteria which will cause acne. On the other hand, benzoyl peroxide also dries up your skin. Doing so, it will cause skin redness and skin irritation. Many users who have used benzoyl peroxide for long term acne treatment have found their skin to be extremely sensitive.
Now comes the important part.
Benzoyl peroxide is only for short term acne treatment measures. What it does is getting rid of acne lesion. It only helps you to get rid of existing acne lesion. It does provide some assistance in preventing acne by unclogging pores. By unclogging pores, benzoyl peroxide actually helps to release sebum trap in the pores.
BUT!!! Do you remember the annoying and nasty effects that benzoyl peroxide can cause to your beautiful skin? The only way for you to use benzoyl peroxide for PERMANENT acne treatment is to use it for a long period of time. I can guarantee you one thing, if you decide to use benzoyl peroxide for a long period of time(to prevent new acne from appearing), you can say goodbye to your youthful and beautiful skin.
So I come to the conclusion that benzoyl peroxide will work only for short term, fast temporary acne treatment. But it will NEVER work for long-term PERMANENT acne treatment. If you want to find a permanent solution for acne, you can forget about normal benzoyl peroxide acne treatment, PERIOD!
