If you find you have bad, stubborn acne, then try using a cleanser containing Benzoyl Peroxide. It is a lot stronger than Salicylic Acid and helps kill the bacteria causing acne. Try using Clean & Clear Continuous Control Acne Cleanser, it contains 10% Benzoyl Peroxide. As Benzoyl Peroxide isquite strong it is recommended to only use it on the affected areas.
