5% Benzyl peroxide is often used to treat more stubborn acne and if you have more sensitive skin then it may cause some redness, other than that, you should be fine, I don't recommend using 10% benzyl peroxide though, as from personal experience, it did more harm than good, however i did have some success with the 5%

I'd say it's better to go with 2.5% if at all possible... 5% is ok, but can be incredibly harsh on your skin... 10%... FORGET ABOUT IT!!! Even if a derm prescribes it, throw it away! The stronger the concentration, the worse the irritation..

I'm surprised not a lot of countries carry 2.5%. The Philippines carries only 5% as well. Luckily I know someone who has 2.5% BP shipped from the middle east and I just order from him.

I tried 5% before I got a hold of the 2.5% and on the 5% I really felt like scratching my face out. Stick to the 2.5% if you can find it.


Morning Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil

Evening Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: Cetaphil Moilturizing Lotion + Acne.org AHA + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil

Medication:

  • Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo
  • Meftormin 500mg

Supplements:
  • Vitamin D - 2000 I.U/day
  • Zinc - 50mg/day


And this is all done as gently as possible. smile.png

5% works better for me. 2.5 doesn't do much for me.


Please only PM me if it's something that cannot be talked about on the thread or is highly personal. This way, everyone benefits.
