PanOxyl 4% Creamy Facial Treatment Wash ($9.49; target.com)
Skin care products that contain benzoyl peroxide can be extremely beneficial for those with inflammatory acne, says Rachel Maiman, a board-certified dermatologist at Marmur Medical. As a bactericidal, it kills bacteria known to contribute to the development of acne. Plus it removes sebum and dead skin cells and prevents the formation of clogged pores, she explains. This foaming wash is available in concentrations of 4% and 10%. For use on the face, Maiman tends to recommend the lower percentage, since it minimizes dryness and irritation without compromising efficacy.
