First, you need to understand how peroxide affects the skin. It should be borne in mind that when it hits the skin, the substance begins to disintegrate into atomic oxygen.
But not always its entire volume is able to absorb the upper layer of the skin. In this case, skin cells are destroyed and pathogenic microorganisms are destroyed throughout the skin surface, not only in the affected, but also in the healthy ones. As a result, skin cells due to the effects of peroxide remain unprotected, because the substance has sterilized them. When destroying harmful microbes, peroxide kills useful microorganisms, which are responsible for protecting the skin from various factors. But still hydrogen peroxide from acne is an effective remedy, because the substance can drive out pus and carry out the entire infection on the surface of the skin.
As a result of this exposure, the skin is burned. Many who have repeatedly used peroxide in the fight against acne noticed that the peel around the inflammation became white, and then completely disappeared, therefore, after applying peroxide, it is recommended to disinfect the pimples with tincture of calendula, as it is able to restore burned skin cells faster.
Based on the above, one can deduce the positive and negative aspects of the use of peroxide for the treatment of acne in the home. My patients used the advice of a doctor, thanks to which you can get rid of problems for 2 weeks without much effort.
- fast antiseptic;
- instant acne drying;
- ability to quickly remove redness from the skin.
- killing both harmful and beneficial bacteria;
- high probability of getting a chemical burn;
- accelerates the aging process of the skin, as the protective properties of the cells are lost.
On sites in the World Wide Web, forums and social networks, you can find a lot of information on how to get rid of acne at home. In general, all lotions, scrubs, masks are based on the addition of hydrogen peroxide.
If you are going to get rid of acne with the help of such a device, you need to be extremely attentive and careful, since an overdose can lead to disfigurement of the face, because peroxide causes a burning of tissues.
And from such consequences does not help to get rid of even laser resurfacing in the beauty salon. The face is perverted once and for all. Even if you are lucky and there is no burn, you will still have to face the fact that after applying peroxide, the skin will begin to fade faster and grow old. This is due to the fact that the peroxide removes the protective barrier. If you still decided to use hydrogen peroxide to treat acne, then it is necessary to apply it only to well-cleaned skin with cotton wool. In order to prevent drying of the skin, after the procedure you need to use a moisturizer. If you notice various side effects, you should immediately stop using peroxide, because you can cause irreversible effects on the skin.
