Adding in a toner?

Recommended Posts

So I didn't really have time to search through the boards and stuff for my answer but here it goes!

I started Dan's regimen a couple of weeks ago and it's working great!

As my acne is clearing up I have tons of post-acne marks and blacks spots along with a little bit of red.

I noticed this toner by Neutrogena called "Rapid Clear: 2-in-1 Fight & Fade Toner" I was wondering if I should add this to my regimen or not..

Please respond! :]

From the FAQs:

Q: Can I use the Regimen in conjunction with additional products or over-the-counter medications?

A: Do not do this until you are completely clear and have been that way for some time. Once you are completely clear, it is okay to add in one variable at a time. However, if you begin the Regimen and are adding in other variables from the get go, you will have no way of judging whether the Regimen works for you. See the biggest mistakes page for more.

Q: Can I use salicylic acid with the Regimen?

A: The jury is still out. The majority of medical books I scoured for acne medication information specifically warn against the combination of salicylic acid with benzoyl peroxide, calling it "overly irritating". Several people on the Regimen have noted this. This warning is echoed when combining benzoyl peroxide with several other acne medications as well, resorcinol and sulfur to name two. Remember, irritation aggravates breakouts.

However, some Acne.org members have used salicylic acid with benzoyl peroxide successfully. If you want to try this, first use the Regimen without salicylic acid until you are completely clear. Then, feel free to add in one variable at a time such as the addition of salicylic acid.

Thanks mucho! :]
