  • As the second step in your three-step acne treatment routine, only use Benzac AC acne treatment gel 2.5% on affected areas. Make sure you wash with a cleanser first, before patting your skin dry. Next, apply a thin film of gel – just once a day – and leave it for two hours. Wash off well with water and pat dry, before applying a light moisturiser. If, after three days, you’ve felt no discomfort, apply in the evening and leave overnight before washing off. After seven days, if there’s no redness or peeling, and your condition has not improved, use twice daily, morning and night.
    If you’re not happy with the results, try a stronger gel (Benzac AC acne treatment gel 5%). If your condition has not improved after one month, consult your Healthcare Professional.
