Drying Existing Pimples Is Good Right?

Well, benzoyl peroxide will certainly do that, but more importantly it prevents new pimples from forming by killing the acne bacteria. Please don't get into the mindset that to get rid of your acne, you have to dry your face out, though! I did this for YEARS between spot-treating with a ton of BP on active pimples, using drying salicylic acid lotions, washing my face with drying acne washes (usually with salicyclic acid in them), using masks a couple times a week and with more on active acne...and well, let's just say I would have never ended up at this site if my "dry acne out" pseudo-regimen had worked. BP is plenty drying...please don't use anything besides BP to dry out your acne while on the Clear Skin Regimen, or else you'll probably cause more irritation than clearing.

whatever you do, DON'T USE TOOTHPASTE!!

I've found ACV (for myself) dries and clears up new pimples in a few days but this is from someone with mild acne.
