Question to those who have tried to come off the regimen

How long does it usually take after coming of BP until you start getting acne again? Also, how long will it take for the BP to start working again if you go back on it?

I haven't tried stopping BP, but the general trend I've heard from my years posting here has been that most people have great skin for a week or so after stopping BP, but then start breaking out really bad about a week after that. I suspect this has something to do with acne bacteria populations regrowing and reaching some critical size around that time.

i been on the regimen for 11 months, and actually stopped applying bp during the day due to the bleaching of clothes and so far i am still clear and its been 2 months, there are times i apply only at night time with AHA but i usually just wash morning and nightime. but everyones skin is different, you can try lay off bp during the day and only apply at night and see how it works out for you
