Using benzoyl peroxide + ACV?

I wash in the morning and apply benzoyl peroxide, this deals very well with my spots, i have very few atm, but the red marks are still there, couldd i apply apple cider vinegar afterwords or is this not a good combination?

thanks for all help

BP prolongs the life of red marks, apparently.

True.

What are your sources?

I apply ACV before applying BP.

@The BP prolonging red marks- Yeah, I would like a source too, because I was wondering that myself..

I would try a BP + AHA combo :D

The AHA I use is Neutrogena's Healthy Skin Lotion w/ AHA, I personally recommend this as it has brought me a long way with helping my hyperpigmigations and scars fade in the past year. (Maybe faster if I hadn't had a breakdown and switched to try Clinique stupidly...)

Cleanser> BP > AHA lotion > basic lotion if you need a little extra , (ie. cetaphil ).

Wynne,an org mod and registered nurse,says benzoyl peroxide doesn't affect the skin's healing process. I believe her most of the time because she is a very well educated individual.

If anyone disagrees please state any articles that say differently.
