Benzoyl peroxide 10%

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, for the last week i have began using benzoyl peroxide 10% again after having an unscuccessful time using retin a. I have actually seen good results so far but over the last couple of days my skin has become really dry and is now flaky despite using moisturiser.

I am considering using the benzoyl peroxide 2.5% for a few days instead of the 10% but i am just worried that depsite this not drying my skin up as much as the 10% it will be less effective for my acne.

Could someone give me some advise on this please

many thanks

Dan has found research that shows 2.5 is just as effective as the 10% but has the reduced irriation. Id definately give it a go, it works for many people.
