Incorporating SA+ into Regimen

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I've been on the regimen for more than 1 year now, and my face is essentially clear. BP really did do an excellent job at stopping any type of inflammatory acne from errupting (which was the majority of acne I got). The only problem I have now is that I get a whitehead or two every now and then on my chin. I am currently using Finacea at night in order to take care of the comedonal acne, but I'm not sure its doing a great job. Since using Finacea, my chin has also become a little more flaky.

So I was thinking about replacing the Finacea with Dan's SA+. I'm a little worried, however, because I have never used an SA product before, and I don't know exactly how my skin will react to it. I did a patch test with the SA last night on the inside of my arm, and today I could clearly see a red area to which I applied it. Any thoughts?

Several other questions I have about SA:

1. I like to apply AHA every 3-4 days in order to remove flakes. Would SA be an alternative to AHA when it comes to a chemical exfoliation?

2. Any potential IB to expect?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks Brady. Just saw your PM ;)

I guess one thing I'm trying to figure out is whether SA is generally better at stopping non-inflammatory acne than AHA.

Also, the reason I don't use AHA more often is because I get extremely flaky if I use it more than 2-3 times a week. And that's not even 100% AHA...I have to dilute it 50/50 with my moisturizer. Do you think I would have this flakiness problem if I used SA for exfoliation?
