I started using quinoderm, which is a type of benxoyl peroxide here in the uk. I bought the 5% version and it was my first time using BP.
Anyway I have very naturally oily skin but after reading some posts by others on here, I was slightly worried I might peel badly and turn very red.
Anyway, to combat this I decided to use neutrogenea visibility clear oil free moisturizer on face after I washed it. Once the moisturiser was absrobed I applied the BP5%.
All I experienced was a slight burning sensation which dissapeared after 5 minutes, I am now on my third day and have not produced any new spots/acne and those spots I did have are reducing in size. I dont have that much redness either.
Basically I was just wondering is it ok to apply the bp after moisturizing rather than before?
I have to shave everyday as I am very dark, that is irritating enough, I cant imagine what it would feel like adding BP to my face after a fresh shave without already applying moisturizer.
I forgot to mention.
What serums, vitamins, supplements or oils can I take to help reduce acne scarring? I scar badly anyway in general but i am sure every little helps.
