Benzoyl Peroxide Burning Skin.

2 posts in this topic

I have a question. I know to some this may be a dumb question, but has anyone ever experienced burning of the skin when using benzoyl peroxide? Is it normal and should I keep going on with it? Thanks.

This is very normal when introducing BP to your skin. It is your skin getting used to the BP. Over a few weeks your skin will adjust and the stinging will go away. To help the stinging subside a bit, use a good moisturizer when using BP.


Morning Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil

Evening Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: Cetaphil Moilturizing LotionĀ + Acne.org AHA + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil

Medication:

  • Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo
  • Meftormin 500mg

Supplements:
  • Vitamin D - 2000 I.U/day
  • Zinc - 50mg/day


And this is all done as gently as possible. smile.png
