In Topic: After Bp & Moisturizer !

Not sure if you're referring to how long after the morning routine, do you wash your face at night ... but it's 10-12 hours between your night and day routine.


In Topic: Becoming More Confident And Self-Loving?

Whatever you're feeling is real and true to you. Acne is the worst and really makes you only see the bad things in life. The important thing is to keep going, maybe make adjustments to your routine to try and help with your dryness, be hopeful - and like the above poster, focus on things you enjoy, that makes you happy or at least take your mind off your skin. You can feel bad/sad/angry about your skin, just try to not let those emotions completely take over.


In Topic: Aha, Glycolic, & Jojoba Oil

Jojoba is for dryness, redness, and smoothing, AHA/GA is for helping with complexion/smoothing. [Linked to acne.org product description.]

For under eye dryness, it would help me when I first started BP to put some moisturizer under my eye area so I wouldn't apply bp too closely. Also stay hydrated! That keeps your skin from getting dry as well.


In Topic: 2 Months In And Still Acne Please Help

That's discouraging - hm. For me, when I got to the full application, it seemed a bit too much for my skin and was seeing some breakouts/redness - so I reduced to one pump nightly and every other morning (1 pump), I saw improvement. But that's just my experience. I hope you figure out what's triggering your skin, may take some time. Good luck!


In Topic: How Would I Use Clindamycin Phosphate Topical Lotion With Benzoyl Peroxide Gel?

I wouldn't recommend this, I'd use one or the other - or if you're very careful use each on a specific part of your face.
You should call/talk to your derm to see what they say.
