In Topic: Switching From Bp To Aha - Problems Without Continual Application?

Today, 07:38 AM

As with most acne medications they do work best when used consistently. If you use them randomly, you may only get random results. The AHA is all that is recommended for mild back/body acne, so if your back acne is under control you can certainly try eliminating the bp and see if the AHA can keep you clear. If not, you can decide if you want to get back on it or not.

Are you on The Regimen? If so, Dan really does not recommend adding in extra washing or rinsing during the day. Here is his advice on managing working out while on The Regimen. http://www.acne.org/faq.html#sweat

Here is Dan's advice for managing workouts. http://www.acne.org/faq.html#sweat

What I would suggest is waiting to do The Regimen until after your 8am workout. If you workout till 10am, do The Regimen at that time then you will be good to go for the day until you do it again at bedtime.

In Topic: Steroids Sabotaging Success On Regimen

Today, 07:34 AM

You might try increasing the amount of bp you are using and add in the AHA lotion if you aren't using it already. Steroids can really wreak havoc on the skin, but if you have to have them, then you gotta do what you gotta do. If you are unable to keep your acne under control, you may want to see your doctor or dermatologist to see if a prescription acne medication might work better for you.

In Topic: Benzoyl Peroxide Getting In Hair

Today, 07:31 AM

There's not a lot you can do other than keep it off of those areas and keep a wide circumference around those areas free of the benzoyl peroxide. If it is dry flaky skin, use the moisturizer there.
