So I am deep into the stages of clearing on my Spiro treatment and the biggest problem I have now are closed comedones that are barely visible under the skin but can inflame at any time and come to a head.  Most are just sitting there and really is the last things keeping my skin from being smooth and clear. 


After reading many blogs and reviews, I decided to order Paula's choice 2% gel.  I need advice as to how and where to use it in my cleansing routine.  should I start one time a day, every other day?  Should I try it just on the closed comedones? 


Curren routine:


Cerave foaming cleanser

DDF Glycolic toner

either tea tree on a spot

2.5% BP

Cerave pm or cerave reg


Any experience or advise would be GREAT!!  thank you

1. Patch test first on your wrist or the crook of your elbow and wait 24-48 hours. Even with Paula's Choice products, some people experience irritation.

2. Try every other day first and watch for irritation. Don't use more than a dime-sized amount over your face.


2% salicylic acid is mild, but using it with other products can cause excessive dryness.


Best to use salicylic acid in the morning and glycolic acid at night.
