How to use

Benzac® AC 5 Gel is not to be taken by mouth and is for use on the skin only. Wash the affected area and gently pat your skin dry. Apply the Gel once or twice a day to all the affected areas. If you have sensitive skin apply the gel once daily before going to bed. 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 Gel. If exposure is unavoidable, use a suitable sunscreen lotion and apply Benzac® AC 5 Gel in the evening. Avoid contact with the eyes, mouth, angles of the nose and other mucous surfaces such as the lining of your nose. If accidental contact should occur, rinse thoroughly with warm water. This product may bleach hair and coloured fabrics including clothing, towels and bed linen. Be careful to avoid contact of the Gel with these materials. Please make sure that you wash your hands thoroughly after you have used it. Avoid excessive exposure to sunlight or UV lamps. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding your baby, please consult your doctor, pharmacist or other healthcare professional for advice before using Benzac® AC 5 Gel.
