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.

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.

Not supposed to use moisturizer for acne skin! Use cetaphil or Cerevae.
