Hey,

Ok the doctor has giving me 'Panoxyl BP 10 wash', and also retin-a, which is like 0.001%. (or something like that)

What is the best way to use this products, so my skin doesnt go completely red, and start flaking. Because i previously used BP 5%, and using it with moisturizer just made my skin soo horrible.

Also has anyone had experience with either of these products, and how did it go?

Thanks

It is best to use Retin-A at night,because it works better that way.

I would use the BP in the morning.

DONT,whatever you do,DONT use both at the same time. BP makes Retin-a useless when used together at the same time!

The only retinoid that can be used with Bp is differin.

I have used both products.For me Retin-A works better.But everyone is different...stick with it,and good luck!

(P.S. you may want to use lotion after applying these products because they will make you flakey)

Hi. I'm using a 4% BP face wash and Differin (also a retinoid).

I'd also recommend using the Retin A at night and the BP wash in the morning.

To avoid irritation, I do the following:

Wash with BP face wash in the shower

Get out, dry off, put clothes on

Once my face is completely dry, I use Neutrogena's Oil Free Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin

I dry my hair so the moisturizer has time to absorb

THEN I put my make up on.

I second the advice about not using the BP wash before the Retin A. Like princesspimple said, they won't work together. I tried using the BP wash before Differin (which, technically you can do) and it stung terribly and turned my face red. No more.

Good luck.
