Do Not Use Salicylic Acid And Benzoyl Peroxide Together. Ever



So apparently I did NOT learn my lesson from a few weeks ago...

DO NOT use Benzoyl Peroxide and Salicylic Acid together. EVER.

I'm an idiot and thought I was clearing up a couple of zits on my chin by using my Salicylic acid toner on Q-tips on them... the result?

The skin on my chin is INCREDIBLY dry, irritated, and red.


Also, NEVER USE SCRUBS when using BP/Atralin. BAD idea. BAD BAD BAD IDEA.

Right now I moisturized heavily with CeraVe moisturizer (in the tub--the reeeeallly moisturizing stuff) and applied Antibiotic ointment, and then put a band-aid over it. I'm going to leave the band-aid on overnight and see how it's doing in the morning :(

Hoping so much that I can moisturize it in the morning and dab some concealer on the area to disguise the redness.

The zit on my left cheek is still not coming to a head...and may not apparently. It might continue to push out, layer by layer and dry up. gah for slow progress. I just want it to be gone!

I feel like these are some of the last areas that need to clear up for my skin to be pretty clear and I'm getting impatient...but trying so hard to stay positive
