Best Acne Treatment

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo combines 5.5 percent benzoyl peroxide with 0.4 percent lipo hydroxy acid (LHA). These two ingredients work together to kill the bacteria associated with acne and to remove acne-causing oil and dirt from pores. Although at least one expert questions the efficacy of LHA, most reviewers say the formula works extremely well, clearing skin in as little as three days.
