When it comes to fighting acne, dermatologists tend to point to one of two products: benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. But which one is best? The writers of mindbodygreen reached out to Dr. Rodney for some more information on these two acne-fighting ingredients.

Salicylic acid, on the other hand, is a beta-hydroxy acid (BHA) that can deeply unclog your pores. For more info about the two products, check out the article in the link below.
