Day 7 On The Regimen, Question.



Day 7 on the Regimen. All of my white pimples cleared up. Now I just have a red face and my skin keeps peeling. I was wondering when the swelling and redness will go away? I'm a little anxious and just want to know how long the redness will last. Also what kind of sunscreen do you recommend?

I'd give it a few months. Benzoyl peroxide can leave your face dry, tight and peeling constantly. Just be sure to exfoliate with your fingertips and keep following the regimen. Gradually your face will adjust to benzoyl peroxide and those symptoms you mentioned should lessen over time. I use a prescription drug called Benzaclin. Its formulation is 1% strength clindamycin and 5% strength benzoyl peroxide. At first my face was so dry and so tight and when I rubbed my fingers over my face it felt scaly. Then after three months, my face felt normal. I had a lot less acne and a lot less dry tightness in my face. Hang in there, it will get better.
