12 posts in this topic

After I apply benzoyl peroxide and wait for about 30 minutes before apply my moisturizer which is Nivea for men, re-hydrating moisturizer.

My skin burns and looks a bit red and goes after awhile is this normal? Or could the cold during daytime causing this?

BP can be irritating to skin initially and make it sensitive to just about everything that goes on it. How long have you been using the BP?

Hm. Your skin is definitely used to the BP, then - especially if you've used 10%. It could be colder temperatures. Other members have reported burning sensations after moisturizing. Unfortunately, I don't have anything else useful to offer. :( Hopefully someone soon will jump in here with more knowledge about moisturizers!

This could be a combination of things. Yes, the weather can impact your skin, especially with very low ambient humidity, but that doesn't have that much of an effect compared to other factors. Have you been applying more BP lately? Have you changed cleansers? Could you please show me the ingredients label on your BP product?

In the mornings I only dap a bit on the affected areas, but afternoons I apply it on my whole face. here's the Active Ingredients

BP - 10%

Methylparaben 0.15%

Propylparaben 0.05%

Do you have any other moisturizing ingredients in the product like glycerin, propelyne glycol and/or urea? Sometimes these ingredients, particularly urea at higher concentrations can be at fault. More often though the company may have changed the formulation slightly without telling customers and you may be allergic to a new ingredient they added. Other times the product is past its expiration date and the formulation is degrading. Or you may not be using enough occlusive ("barrier") agents like petroleum jelly.

BP did the same thing to me when I was on Dan's regimen. ;o; I thought it was my moisturizer at first, but that seemed unlikely since it was specifically for sensitive skin. It was just the BP. I think it's normal, it just makes your skin sensitive to other things you put on.

1 Start reading --> Help Me! What I Do!?!? /// 2 what to use? right here --> the acne.org line -- why are you making it any more difficult? -- that's all you need. you don't need anything more than that. follow it exactly, then tell me how it was in detail (with photo proofs)

3 is it Christmas yet? -->> <<-- (you may pm me one highest quality evidence for my reviewing)

look, you may not care, but i do -- misinformation or awfully poor data is extremely dangerous. much comes from marketers, gurus, other media, and simply unreliable, careless people, fake or real, intentionally or not. they are NOT there to help you -- and they don't care about you -- understand that. if they did, they would make sure the data was reliable -- absolutely reliable -- among other things. so you better have diligence. You should care about where you get your data from, because 99% of it is crap, and if you still don't care, then i don't care, and you can go ahead and eat unreliable fast food junk data and bloat yourself up to become a low-quality person for the rest of your life. good people don't want that for you, only the bad do. at times, you'll piss a lot of people off when you tell them what's reality. there's a lot of sigs, and if you want to keep with quality, this is the only place i personally trust until someone shows me solid, reliable evidence.

i have a one 1-line reply per directly acne-specific thread policy. all distractions/notifications turned off. if you have reliable evidence i should see, you may pm

* evil people have profiteered off of the expense of others long enough,

* so remember im only sharing this guide for those Few people

* that will actually care and appreciate it. im doing you a Huge favour~
