Topical products are those used to apply on the surface of the skin and include a wide variety of creams, lotions and potions. Its important to understand what they contain and how they work to get the best use out of them.
Topical creams are available containing benzyl peroxide which is a mild type of bleach; it could be safely used on the face. When using products with benzyl peroxide it tends to dry the skin with a peeling effect although it can also potentially damage healthy skin as a side effect. To avoid this instead use products with salicylic acid and other exfoliating ingredients that are much better for your skin.
Remember when selecting products to ensure that they exfoliate and cleanse your skin.
One of the most effective ingredients used in cosmetic and exfoliating products is salicylic acid as you can use it a regular basis without concern and if you follow the manufacturer’s directions.
