In Topic: Mixing Acne Treatments Have Repercussions?

06 January 2015 - 04:34 AM

BP needs to be used on its own and absorbed by the skin in order to kill acne causing bacteria, mixing any other products with BP will prevent full effectiveness. I would take a look at the regime steps and use some of the methods but incorporate your organic products (if the work for you). However, unfortunately you have to just see for yourself whether it will work for you.

Exfoliant face washes can be good if you can tolerate irritation, however like most of us it just causes unnecessary irritation. A foaming cleanser that is soap free can help prevent irritation and hence new breakouts. I personally recommend the acne org facial wash or Cerave foaming wash. All the best

Ahh the old trade off between redness and new breakouts; I now exactly what you mean. It can be frustrating having persistent redness from BP, however just keep in mind that this is helping you prevent new breakouts and hence new red marks in the future. I would recommend slowly reducing the amount of BP over a period of time where you are still responding however reducing the BP used. Also with regards to the organic products just make sure they are non comedogenic in order o prevent new breakouts.

In Topic: Don't Know What To Do

So I've been dealing with acne for about a year and a half now. I was finally able to stop my breakouts about 3 months ago and I've been left with red marks, some of which have left physical scars. I can't seem to get these scars to fade, they seem to have stopped healing. On top of that, my acne seems to have starting coming back.

To get rid of this I'm thinking about buying a new cleanser, moisturizer, and exfoliator. I've heard good things about Clean&Clears foaming cleanser for sensitive skin, and Neutrogena's visibly even moisturizer. Anyone have any exfoliant suggestions?

I've also heard AHA/BHA helps a lot to get red of these marks. Which one is better, is there any brand suggestions, and how often should you use AHA/BHA?

Thanks in advance.

 

It great news that your breakouts have stopped however you need to be patient when it comes to acne scarring and red marks. You really don't want to risk over aggravating your skin and becoming prone to more breakouts. In short, keep it simple, if you have found a regime that has stopped your breakouts keep doing that regime. It is an often occurrence that people may react or breakout to different products so just keep this in mind. Long story short, AHA and BHA are a powerful exfoliants and can be used for red marks when used in a gradual process and a lot of people have had positive results. However, the best treatment for red marks is preventing acne in the future, just consider this before embarking on a new range of products that may potentially aggravate your skin. All the best.
