How to use

Apply Benzac AC 5 Wash once or twice a day to all the affected areas, whilst avoiding contact with your eyes, eyelids, mouth, angles of the nose and other mucous surfaces such as the lining of your nose. Rub in gently with your fingertips and leave on your skin for 30 seconds. Rinse off with water. Pat dry. Any drying or peeling which may occur to your skin may be reduced if you change the number of applications, i.e. apply once a day or once every two days, until your skin adjusts to the product. You should try to avoid exposure to strong sunlight while using Benzac® AC 5 Wash. If exposure is unavoidable, use a suitable sunscreen lotion and apply Benzac® AC 5 Wash in the evening. Remember to wash the affected area before use. If you are pregnant, think you may be pregnant or are planning to have a baby, please consult your doctor, pharmacist or other health care provider for advice before using this medicine. Avoid using Benzac® AC 5 Wash if you are breastfeeding your infant.
