What is Acnecide gel?

Acne is an inflammatory skin condition in which blackheads, whiteheads and red spots may form on the skin. It is caused by the bacteria present on the skin. Acnecide gel, works destroying the causative bacteria to improve the skin's appearance.

How does it work?

This gel has benzoyl peroxide (5% w/w) as the active ingredient. The benzoyl peroxide peels the skin, and gets rid of bacteria, dead skin cells and excessive oil present on the skin, which cause acne. The gel will also cause the skin to dry, thus reducing the chances of bacterial growth.

Is Acnecide gel for me?

It is for you if you are suffering from any type of acne. It is equally effective for youth, adults and teens. If you have any skin outbreak, it will ease out the symptoms within a few days of 1-2 applications per day.

How fast does the Acnecide Gel-5% work for a pimple?

It starts working immediately after application. Its effectiveness will appear after 2-4 weeks; however, regular use for 2-4 months is required to note full effects. 

Can I use a moisturiser with the acnecide cream?

Using a serum or moisturiser while the acnecide is still not fully absorbed can reduce the absorption and, thus, the effectiveness of the cream. Allow it to be fully absorbed before applying the moisturiser.

Which is best? Acnecide (benzyl peroxide) or the salicylic acid?

If acne has advanced, e.g., you have whiteheads or blackheads, and you have sensitive skin, the products containing salicylic acid are more effective. However, for inflammatory acne, having pustules and papules, the products containing benzoyl peroxide (e.g., acnecide) are more effective.

Can acnecide gel be left on the skin overnight?

It is safe to keep it applied overnight. However, allow it to dry on the skin before going to bed because it can stain the hair (particularly darker hair) if it gets to the hairline through the pillow.

Can acnecide help you to remove dark spots?

Yes, it is good for dark spots. It can remove dead skin cells through its peeling action. Thus, the scars and dark spots are reduced.

Does it help with hormonal acne?

Yes. Regardless of the cause, it helps to reduce the symptoms of acne. However, addressing the hormonal cause can add more benefits.
