For anyone who’s experienced an acne flare-up, hearing about yet ANOTHER product that miraculously claims to banish spots can be pretty tiresome. We’ve heard it all before. And how much does it cost? £100 for a tiny pot? Nope, not going to happen.
However, something has been stirring on Reddit. The 10% Sulfur Ointment from US brand De La Cruz has been hailed as a cure for cystic acne, with users claiming it’s actually cleared them up *overnight*.
The £4 cream is supposed to dry spots and blackheads, preventing them from reappearing.
So, what’s The 10% Sulfur Ointment made from?
The clue is in the name. The key ingredient is sulfur, a chemical element with natural anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties that helps kill the acne-causing bacteria. It also prevents new bacteria from manifesting on the skin’s surface.
The ingredient is known as ‘drying’ because it peels away the top layer of the skin and, in the process, reduces the production of sebum in the skin, which leads to oiliness.
