The problem is that benzoyl peroxide, while it is effective in removing oil, dries out skin thus increasing amount of dead skin tissue on surface of skin. This in turn clogs pores. For most women however, using moisturizers to relieve this dryness is not an option. The oils and waxes used in moisturizers aggravate acne because they compound pore blockage.
Several companies have worked to solve this problem and have developed moisturizers for acne prone skin. Murad and Olay have developed a number of products. At Niora, we have worked to solve this problem by creating moisturizers formulated with specially emulsified jojoba oil. Jojoba oil, while intensely moisturizing, is a fine oil with a far smaller molecular weight than sebum, or skin oil. Jojoba penetrates these heavier skin oils, unclogging pores and dissolving nascent blackheads and whiteheads. Because of Niora’s emulsification process, dissolved sebum and excess oils rinse free leaving skin soft and clean.
These lighter moisturizers can be blended with alpha hydroxy acids, which in turn exfoliate skin and work to prevent excessive tissues from building, back up in pores. Typically these types of exfoliating cleansers must be used daily to be effective, but they replace normal moisturizers and cleansers and fit easily into most skin care regimes.
These new skin care products thus offer best of both worlds: an effective acne treatment that moisturizes skin and reduces wrinkling. To date thousands of women have successfully used these new products demonstrating that best acne treatment might well be anti-aging skin care.
