no. it will work more effectively. differin co. recommends 2x daily but there will be more irritation.

Actually, the manufacturers of Differin recommend using it once per day: "DIFFERIN® Gel should be applied once a day to affected areas after washing in the evening before retiring."

It's probably not going to hurt you to use it more than once per day, but it will cause more irritation. A lot of people use Differin at night and something with antibacterial properties like Duac in the morning. If you want to use something during the day, I'd say try BP cream (2.5% like Dan recommends). That way you're both taking care of clogged pores (Differin) and fighting bacteria (BP).

I apply Differin gel *sometimes* twice a day, usually on weekends or when I'm not wearing makeup. It doesn't seem to irriate my skin.
