Salicylic Cleanser & BP treatment?

I heard salicyclic acid cleansers (2.0%) and BP treatments (benzamycin in my case) are bad to mix....is this true? Or does it not matter? I'm reluctant to try it as I'm afraid that it will make my skin bad.

Help plz.

I once used a 2% salicylic acid topical whilst also using a BP topical. I did this for about 3-4 months thinking that the two of them together would work doubly well. Instead i ended up with lots more acne and a huge dry-skin problem. Not recommended!

i used BP for about 3 years..

&& without noticing it..

it made my face so much worse.

ended up..

being allergic to the darn thing.

so now.. im using SA.

its some good stuff to clear pores && even tighten them if your using it in an astringent form.

but i agree.. using them together may be a tad irritating to your skin.

if your going to use both..

the best idea is to use BP at night && SA during the day.

b/c of the sun.. BP can also/might bleach your skin.

hope this helps

take care :]
