Need help. Lost and.. new to all this.

Hi everyone,

I'm new to this forum. I was searching through the internet and found this site and found it useful. But its just so... much information.

Basically.. I'm pissed off right now.. I'm using 3 things: Cetaphil Gentle Wash, Panoxyl 5%, Loreal Pure Zone Moisturizer.

I'm happy with the gentle wash. I've tried doing the Clear Regimen scheme... but when I mix the Panoxyl and the Loreal moisturizer, my face just reddens up and it gets worst I feel. The moisturizer contains Salicylic acid too.

I have mild acne on both cheeks with quite a lot of redness and pigmentation.

Does anyone have any recommendation on products my situation? I would like to keep my cleanser. But the benzoyl peroxide and moisturizer.. I might change. I just dnt know wats causing all the redness and increased acne.

Oh and also... I put on the PanOxyl.. then wait then put the Moisturizer... but even after I put on the moisturizer.. its so flaky.. like thick. So I kinda gave up.. sigh.

i'm not expert but i would probably ditch your current moisturizer. The salycic acid/ bp combination can be very irritating to your skin. If you want to try the CSR there is a product recommendation link on the main page :)

HTH and good luck!
