Recommended Posts

okay i know alot of people here suggest not using benzoyl peroxide while on accutane but is the reason becasue it stops the accutane from working or becasue it can aggravate your skin more??

Hey get off that shit....BP....I used it as a face wash and my skin went really really dry, it started to peel and break out ten times worse... I stopped using it straight away. I got it from paulaschoice.com.au and they told me to continue using it until the first breakout dissapeared. I was like HELLL NOOO...

good luck and hang in there okay...

Benzoyl Peroxide can de-activate retinoids and make then ineffective, so I would not use both at the same time.

I believe that's only topical retinoids- you aren't supposed to apply them and BP at the same time. Accutane works on an internal level, and the only thing I've heard of that lessens its effectiveness is not taking it with a meal.
