How do you use it
Firstly, wet the affected area. Gently rub on Benzac AC® Wash 5%, work into a lather and leave in contact with skin for 30 seconds. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry.
During the first few weeks of treatment a sudden increase in peeling may occur. This is not harmful and will normally subside within a day or two.
If too much drying occurs, you may need to rinse the cleanser off sooner, use it less often or use a moisturiser.
Always read the label. Use only as directed. If symptoms persist see your healthcare professional.
