It is advantageous if the cleanser cream also contains Benzoyl Peroxide, to ensure the prevention of any further bacterial outbreaks. A toner is also often contained in the cream. The toner doesn’t act on the surface of the skin, but is able to penetrate much deeper into the pores and get rid of any remaining toxins that may still be present in the skin pores, causing risk of acne repeated break-outs. This also counters any excess oils from being generated by the body, which is a natural function which assists in removing excess dust and dirt remaining deep inside the pores.
