A helpful regimen

Recommended Posts

My boyfriend has severe bacne. For the past few years, he's used a PanOxyl 10% bar, which keeps the worst of it at bay. For the past couple weeks, I've also been applying Aqua Glycolic toner to his back, and he's mostly healed up and has only been getting some smaller, less inflamed pustules.

Here's what he's doing:

He showers in the morning or afternoon with PanOxyl.

I put the AG on his back afternoon and night or just night.

He had a frightening-looking IB the first few days of AG, but he said it didn't hurt.

In case it matters, he's 27, so this is adult acne he's dealing with. He tried some different oral antibiotics and "creams" back in high school and early college to no avail. IMO, he belonged on Accutane.

And I asked before I posted this. It's just so cool to watch all this rapid improvement that I wanted to share.

Edit: He just reminded me he applies the PanOxyl with a scrub brush. He's also continuing to get smaller, less inflamed pustules even less frequently.
