5 Best Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Creams in Singapore 2023

What Causes Pimples?

Pimples form when dead skin cells mix with excess oil (sebum). This mixture plugs the pore, causing swelling. Bacteria can grow in the mix and lead to infection and pus. In order to treat acne, dead skin cells need to be cleared and oil-polluted pores need to be unclogged as well. The secret? Benzoyl Peroxide.

How Does Benzoyl Peroxide Work?

When applied to the skin, benzoyl peroxide works by reducing the amount of acne-causing bacteria and also by causing the skin to dry and peel; therefore unclogging the infected oil-polluted pores as well.

Benzoyl Peroxide Side Effects

Benzoyl peroxide for acne treatment is typically applied to the affected areas in gel or cream form, in concentrations of 2.5% increasing through 5.0%, and up to 10%.No strong evidence supports the idea that higher concentrations of benzoyl peroxide are more effective than lower concentrations.

Benzoyl peroxide commonly causes initial dryness and sometimes irritation, although the skin develops tolerance after a week or so. A small percentage of people are much more sensitive to it and liable to suffer burning, itching, crusting, and possibly swelling. 

It is sensible to apply the lowest concentration and build up as appropriate. Once tolerance is achieved, increasing the quantity or concentration and gaining tolerance at a higher level may give better subsequent acne clearance. Irritation can also be reduced by avoiding harsh facial cleansers and wearing sunscreen prior to sun exposure.
