We’ve all had that moment when we wake up to a huge pimple that mysteriously appeared overnight. And for some cruel reason, it always seems to happen on an important day where your picture will be taken. Luckily, there are many products that can diminish the appearance of unsightly pimples, and odds are that product contains either sulfer, salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide.
Benzoyl Peroxide is known for clearing blemishes quickly because it kills acne-causing bacteria and dries pimples quickly. It can also reduce inflammation.
Believe it or not, sulfur is actually one of the oldest acne treatments out there. It helps dry out the pimple, battle oily skin and keep pores clear. It’s also often looked at as a more natural option for treating acne.
Salicylic Acid is effective in treating acne because it can penetrate deep into the follicle. It works as an exfoliant and helps clear the pores of cellular debris.
Of these options, we want to know, which one do you think works the best to zap zits? Or do you like to use a combination of them all? Tell us in the comments below!
