BP and skin aging

I've recently read this article about BP and skin aging and cancer http://www.bion-research.com/benzoyl_perox...skin_damage.htm

I've been using it for almost two years and while it helped a lot I'm willing to try something different because, first I don't wanna speed up the skin aging process and second it doesn't clear me up 100% and dramatically reduces skin healing, I have red spots that take months to heal.. I use 10% strength :ninja:

I'd like to hear from people who have been using the stuff for more than 4 or 5 years.. how's your skin?

Well they say oily skin ages slower. So based on that logic alone, yes bp will age your skin faster because of excessive dryness(which is a symptom for most that use these heaping amounts, of course there are a few lucky exceptions to this).

I've been using BP for four years now and I can say, so far, that it has not effected my skin in a negative fashion. It keeps me clear, which is honestly the point and much preferable to a face full of acne for me.

I am also 27, and will be hitting those skin changing aging years, we'll see what happens there.
