Acne can strike at any age. When it comes to red and inflamed acne, pimples that form below the surface, they need to be treated just as effectively as the whiteheads and blackheads that appear on the surface. After all, it's what's below the surface that causes those whiteheads and blackheads to begin with. That's where Benzoyl Peroxide " comes in cue miracle entrance music."

Benzoyl Peroxide works hard to clear pimples and kill bacteria that causes acne. This helps to prevent new acne from forming (hooray!). This effective ingredient comes in many different strengths and forms like lotions, gels, soaps and liquids. Even better? It's available without a prescription.

Like most products, there's no one-size-fits-all solution. You're encouraged to use Benzoyl Peroxide continuously in the morning and before bed as part of a daily regimen for best results. To quickly treat visible signs of stubborn acne, Neutrogena created Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Daily Leave-On Mask that helps to clear stubbor the skin to fight off bacteria. You apply it all over your face just like a traditional full-face mask, but don't rinse it off. The gentle gel formula dries clear so you can wear it under moisturizer or makeup. No one will ever know the difference! That is, until your skin starts to clear.


Beauty begins with healthy skin, so we're bringing you skin science and how-to guides to help you achieve your best skin ever.
