I posted this under the regimen section but I am not getting any feedback there. LOL
So I will post this here....
I was wondering if anyone here had some success combing the two?
I been mostly concentrating on the diet aspect in the last 7 or so years but I noticed that I always had to use benzoyl peroxide wash (10%) regardless of the composition of my diet. Out of all the products the benzoyl product somewhat controlled my acne better compared to other products.
I eat a Paleo style diet for almost 2 years but unfortunately after almost 20 years of having acne I am still breaking out. I am now 32 years old and realize I will always have acne and will never outgrow it. I don't really know what else to do at this point. I have used Accutane 13 years ago and obviously it didn't work. And I am still suffering some of the side effects from it.
I am wondering if adding the treatment gel (2.5%) like described in the regimen will make any difference? I am assuming it won't hurt me since my skin is already used to benzoyl peroxide. Does putting the gel help control the oil too? I tend to get very oily by mid-day and evening..
Any feedback would be appreciated
FYI my current topical regimen is: Clean and clear cleanser (10% benzoyl peroxide), clean and clear moisturizer (0.5% salicylic acid) (or Complex 15 moisturizer) and clean and clear spot treatment (10% benzoyl peroxide).
