Face Red And Burning After Moisturizer

8 posts in this topic

Hey, so I've been on the regimen for around 2 months and im starting to clear up a bit. My skin no longer gets irritated nor red when I apply the benzoyl peroxide, but it does when I put on the moisturizer. I wait for around 15 minutes in between applying the BP and moisturizer. The moisturizer Im using is specifically for acne skin. Is this normal and is there any way to avoid this?

Thanks

Well Im from Finland so I doubt you'll be familiar with it; Orion Pharma: Humektan.

Oh, and I forgot to mention that if I apply just the moisturizer, there is no burning or redness etc... Just the combination of BZ and moisturizer seems to cause problems.

Hi! I'm on my 3rd Week (3rd day) with The Regimen although I'm only using store-bought products because I live in the Philippines.

Here are the products that I use:

1. CELETEQUE DermoScienceā„¢ Hydration Facial Wash (Non-comedogneic, hypo-allergenic) http://celetequedermoscience.com/hydration-facial-wash.html

2. BENZAC Ac Gel 5% (http://www.benzac.com.au/products/benzac-gel) - as much as I would like to use 2.5%, unfortunately, it's not available here yet. I can only get a hold of a 2.5% Benzac BP on February.

3. CELETEQUE DermoScienceā„¢ Hydration Facial Moisturizer - http://celetequedermoscience.com/hydration-facial-moisturizer.html

After applying some BP (based on the dosage chart that dan recommended), I feel a few sting in my face, but after 15mins and the application of the moisturizer, it stings more and feels like its burning.

I'm not sure, is it normal? Should I reduce the dosage of my BP because its 5%?

Thank you! :)

From what I've read I think the burning is caused by mixing the BP with glycerin, which almost all moisturizers contain. Try to find a moisturizer that has glycerin further down in the ingredient deck, not as the top 3 or 4 ingredients, but that is tough to find. Dans moisturizer does not contain glycerin so that may be a good choice.

Well the moisturizer Im using doesn't contain any glycerin so I guess thats not whats causing it for me.. On some applications it doesn't burn that much though. Probably will just stop over time.

I see, so I just have to bear with this. Celeteque Mositurizer "Has Triple Moisturizing System that contains Glycerin, Provitamin B5 and Aloe Vera"

Thank you very much for the answer! surprised.gif
