Can benzoyl peroxide or differin cause facial hair to grow

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm an asian male and I've been using benzoyl peroxide and differin for the past few months for my acne. One time when I used it, my chin hair grew 1 cm in just one night. I woke and i was like wooooh. I didn't mind that so much so I just let it go. But then a few months later, I noticed that some more facial hair came out from my cheeks. There were also some coming out from the blackheads from my nose and in-between my eyes. My dad and his dad have no facial hair to that extent, maybe a mustache growing out every month or so, otherwise no facial hair whatsoever. It's the same for my mom obviously and her parents. They don't even have leg hair, so I took out the fact that it could be genetics. I wanted to know weather or not benzoyl peroxide or differin can cause facail hair.
