Benzoyl Peroxide to treat acne

Acne—a teenager's worst nightmare especially before a special occasion like parties and proms. In high school I was blessed with a skin that was not so much prone to breakout. Yeah, I occasionally get a zit or two, and sometimes three to four at the same time, but it wasn't anything out of the ordinary since some students in our high school were literally bombarded with zits on their face. My brother during his high school days, was one of those “pizza faces”. My mom felt sorry for him so she took him to the dermatologist so that the doctor could recommend some acne treatments. Well, sad to say that whatever medication the doctor recommended, didn't work on my brother, because 20 years later, he still wears his acne scars.

Now if only Google and the Internet was popular back then, I would have searched for the best acne treatment reviews on the net and recommend the medicine to my brother. Unlike diet pills, acne medicines have way more success rates. As for me, the best acne treatment I use is over-the-counter benzoyl peroxide. Works like magic and dries the pimple fast. Of course, I also visit my dermatologist once a month for a good old facial.
