Does BP make your skin darker?

Recommended Posts

It should resolve by discontinuing the BP.

This is from Dan's FAQ, notice #3:

"The most common side effects of anti-acne drugs applied to the skin are slight redness, dryness, peeling, and stinging, and a warm feeling to the skin. These problems usually go away as the body adjusts to the drug and do not require medical treatment. Other side effects should be brought to a physician's attention. Check with a physician as soon as possible if any of the following side effects occur:

1. Blistering, crusting or swelling of the skin.

2. Severe burning or redness of the skin.

3. Darkening or lightening of the skin. (This effect will eventually go away after treatment with an anti-acne drug ends.)

4. Skin rash.

^if i stop using BP what product do i use?

how should my routine look like?

You decide, since you can't do the regimen.

If you were usin Dan's products, I'd continue to wash your face wit his cleanser, just substitutin the Benzoyl Peroxide to somethin else, while continuin wit moisturiser.

I'm sorry you can't do the regimen... good luck wit your acne trouble.
