Salicylic Acid and Benzoyl Peroxide: A Winning Combo

Continuing into week 3 of our ingredient roundup. This time our focus is acne. True, we are now talking about an ingredient combo instead of just one, but putting these two together only makes sense.

Salicylic Acid and Benzoyl Peroxide work together to fight acne. Salicylic Acid penetrates pores to clean them out and Benzoyl Peroxide kills the bacteria. So they both technically do the dirty work. Oh and Salicylic Acid works as an anti-inflammatory. In other words it will help reduce redness.

Benzoyl Peroxide is commonly found in face washes and spot treatments, while Salicylic Acid is found in products like toners and creams.
