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?
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 DermoScience™ Hydration Facial Wash (Non-comedogneic, hypo-allergenic) http://celetequederm...acial-wash.html
2. BENZAC Ac Gel 5% (http://www.benzac.co...ucts/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 DermoScience™ Hydration Facial Moisturizer - http://celetequederm...oisturizer.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%?
