Pimples near eye area, how to safely handle?

Recommended Posts

So I'm 2.5 weeks into the Regimen, good stuff so far. My only issue is handling the pimples that are near my eyes. Dan says that he stays about 1 inch away from his eyes when he applies BP, but I have pimples as close as 1/4" away.

I've been applying BP close to my eyes anyways, though sometimes I feel like some of it is getting on my eyelids. Although, that is most likely the BP from my forehead/nose when I sweat. Regardless, how do I safely apply BP so it doesn't irritate my eyes. Thank you!

The skin around your eyes is only about a tenth as thick as the skin elsewhere on your face, and is very sensitive, so applying BP to that delicate skin isn't a good idea. If you're breaking out around your eyes, I'd suggest just being very careful and letting the acne there heal on its own.
