In Topic: Is Exfoliating A Good Idea On Acne.org

I would highly advise not to use an exfoliate/scrub on the regimen, esp in the beginning. Have you tried adding jojoba oil to combat the dryness?
Also, as Trevor12 said - if you're getting really dry skip mornings or days until your face gets more used to the routine.

No actives but I'm a bit red, I added a little more BP this morning, and red. I have to be slow with adding more into my routine or else I get red.
So I'm feeling ok - since I was breaking out last week, but I'm sure I will break out a bit next week though.

I would think until the expiry date listed on the bottle, even opened.

I sincerely hope you find something to at least ease the progress of your acne.
Definitely try the antibiotics for a time, don't know if it'll happen to you but I had an IB pretty soon after getting on them - so prepare for the possibility =\

I haven't heard of a salt and baking soda mask but it sounds really abrasive (the salt) in that you have to remove it somehow.

Consider BCPs or a skin routine that your dr suggests or one you find may work for you here on the boards.
Unfortunately it's all trial and error, figuring it out along the way. It's really difficult to use something and want it to work straight away but realize you have to give it time. Good luck.
