Hey gals and guys,
I am a male and have had problems with mild to moderate acne since puberty (now 29). I have tried most over the counter and all treatments that the dermatologist has to offer (including accutane), but have never had clear skin. I am somewhat eager to try the regimen but I have one big reservation.
My job requires me to wear nice clothes everyday. As such, I have acquired some rather expensive shirts, ties, suits, and jackets over the years. I really cant afford to ruin any of these clothes by having benzoyl peroxide bleach them. In my previous experiences using bp acne treatments (although not in this way with large amounts of low % bp) I have found that the shoulders of my shirts and pillow cases get bleached. I dont mind the pillow cases, but I cant afford to be bleaching out the shoulders of my nice shirts and suits. Is there anything that can be done to prevent this?
Could it be effective with applying the bp only in the evening? I have never used 2.5% bp, only 5% or higher. Perhaps the lower % will make a difference. Keep in mind that my acne is moderate to mild. I do not get that many zits at once anymore (perhaps 4-5), but they do tend to be large and inflamed. I want good clear skin and am willing to pay for a good treatment, but cant afford to replace my work clothes.
