For most adults, it’s been awhile since we’ve had to tackle major acne outbreaks. Sure, we get the occasional hormonal pimple or two, but nothing like when we were teenagers. PanOxyl acne products not only offer excellent acne treatments, but the PanOxyl website offers great information for parents and children about acne causes, prevention and treatment.
Common acne triggers are hormones, stress, cosmetics clogging pores, and of course genetics, but there are other factors that contribute. These are addressed on the PanOxyl website, and there’s a great FAQ section that answers many of the common questions parents and teens have about acne. I love that PanOxyl offers this invaluable information, which helps you pick an individualized acne treatment that is best for you or your childs’ skin.
PanOxyl contains benzoyl peroxide, an ingredient that clears current breakouts, prevents new breakouts from starting, and is a skin peeling agent to unclog pores. Benzoyl peroxide also kills the P. acnes bacteria, (an important element when trying to break the acne cycle), which products containing salicylic acid don’t tackle.
There are 2 face washes to choose from with PanOxyl – Maximum Strength 10% Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Foaming Wash, and Daily Control 4% Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Creamy Wash. PanOxyl recommends starting with the lower dosage, and moving up if that is not effective enough. Just have a few bumps on your face, neck or back? Use PanOxyl 3% Advanced Acne Spot Treatment! The PanOxyl 10% Maximum Strength Cleansing Bar is perfect for severe breakouts. It’s easy to use on face, back and neck in the shower or bath, and also gently exfoliates the skin.
Look for PanOxyl products at local retailers like RiteAid, Walmart, Walgreens, and CVS, and also online on Amazon.com and SkinStore.com. Be sure to print the $2.00 off coupon from the PanOxyl website before you shop!
