What Are the 2 Most Effective Ingredients to Remove Acne?

Posted By Mariana

Benzoyl Peroxide and Salicylic Acid are two ingredients that arguably are the most effective agents in fighting acne. However, there are many acne types, so it is essential to find the right cure for you! 

Unfortunately, acne develops from numerous factors such as excess oil, layers of dead skin cells, dirt, hormonal imbalance, family history, age, diet, and stress, affecting many people from various age groups. There are multiple types of facial bumps, like blackheads and whiteheads, which are non-inflamed acne. The painful ones, sometimes containing pus, require specific treatments with ingredients to calm and soothe the skin's irritation and inflammation. Identifying what type of acne you have and how to treat it will help fight those awful blemishes.

The big issue some people face is excess oil, dead skin and dirt. An overabundance of oil in the face and accumulation of dead skin clogs the open pores, and they become infected with bacteria, which then forms a pimple.

One of the most effective ways to treat acne is benzoyl peroxide. Which kills bacteria, removes excess oil, and exfoliates dead skin cells.

Formulated with 5% pharmaceutical grade Benzoyl Peroxide, the VivierSkin Acne Treatment Lotion effectively clears pimples, blackheads, whiteheads and is ideal for acne-prone skin.

This treatment gel has a patented, time-released, micronized Benzoyl Peroxide, that eliminates acne-causing bacteria while minimizing potential irritation and reducing oil production.

According to the assistant professor of dermatology at Weill Medical College of Cornell University, Dr. Diane Berson, says you need at least 2 percent of salicylic acid in your acne treatment. The New York City dermatologist states that salicylic acid is an effective and powerful exfoliant that helps keep pores clear by exfoliating inside the hair follicle and has anti-inflammatory properties.
