Is It A Good Idea To Use Retin-A And Benzoyl Peroxide As A Part Of My Regimen?

5 posts in this topic

Hey,

I was wondering if it would be alright to use benzoyl peroxide and Retin-A micro gel 0.1%. I was thinking about using Retin-A at night and I will use the bezoyl peroxide during the day, or I will use it on off days (just on the acne itself).

What do you guys think? Is this okay or is it too much for my skin?

Thanks.

Also would it be alright to use a salicylic acid (2.5%) scrub once a week in the morning?

My derm let's me use retin a at night and a face wash in the morning with 4% benzoyl peroxide, but you should always ask your derm just to make sure. I;m not so certain about the salicylic acid, it might be too much on your skin. Again; talk to your derm about it.
