Long term use of BP

Recommended Posts

I am wondering whether it is totally safe to use large amounts of BP 2.5% for the long term. For example, can it thin the skin over time or cause any other side effects? Is it true that once acne is cleared, it is advisable to continue with regimen indefinitely? Would you still continue to use lots of BP or does this get cut down?

I used large amounts of bp 10% for around four years straight, along with GA and SA. Totally killed my face. Rid me of my acne, but my skin got thin, flaky, transparentish, and pigmented. The results were worse than my acne before, so I quit chem products.
