Woman in bathrobe holding out PanOxyl 4% and 10% washes

Celebrities appear flawless when they are on the red carpet, but behind the scenes can be a very different story.

Several stars have joined the #nomakeup wave on Instagram to show us they are not immune to the woes of skincare. This includes our worst nemesis – acne.

So what treatment are some of them using to keep their faces pimple free? You may think it’s some crazy serum that’s found only in the rarest of rain forests and goes for thousands of dollars.

Nope. It’s PanOxyl, and it costs no more than a month of Netflix.

According to Cosmopolitan magazine, one celebrity says she picks up PanOxyl from her local drugstore to help battle her worst breakouts.

PanOxyl uses its own star power – benzoyl peroxide—to help clear, treat and prevent blemishes. Hollywood stars aren’t the only ones taking notice of this skincare hero. Beauty editors and dermatologists are swearing by it.

Seventeen Magazine listed our Maximum Strength Acne Foaming Wash as one of the “20 Best Body Washes for Acne and Pimples In Those Really Hard-to-Reach Places”. It has a 10% concentration of benzoyl peroxide — the highest strength of BP you can get without a prescription.

Self interviewed several dermatologists on their favorite acne treatments. Kenneth Howe, M.D., a cosmetic dermatologist at Wexler Dermatology said he recommends PanOxyl’s 10% Acne Foaming Wash to his patients. “It lathers up nicely and is very convenient for treating large areas such as the chest or back.”

If you have sensitive skin, we suggest starting with our Acne Creamy Wash, which has a 4% concentration of benzoyl peroxide. Product experts at New York Magazine recommend this wash to help clear cystic acne on the chest and back. Women’s Health Magazine also lists our Acne Creamy Wash as the best acne face wash for all-over breakouts, according to dermatologists.
