BenzaClin (clindamycin and benzoyl peroxide) is a combination of Benzoyl peroxide and Clindamycin. The former agent causes sensitivity to the sun, and can result in reddish blotchy rashes on the skin of the face. We should generally apply BenzaClin (clindamycin and benzoyl peroxide) in the evening, once we're in for the day.
