Can you ever use too much BP?

Recommended Posts

Post is exactly what is says on the tin. I'm 2 months in, so I'm not holding judgement against using too much BP whilst I'm still breaking out. But I have noticed that I seem to use more BP at full dosage than what Dan has suggested.

Can this have an effect on my breakouts and/or irriation?

Thanks in advance. :)

Well, I don't put benzoyl peroxide over my whole face (since only parts of it usually break out) so I'm never sure how much bp to use and I think I put too much on my chin sometimes. It doesn't seem to break me out majorly if I overuse it but it definitely creates redness, irritation, flakiness. That irritation also seems to make even a tiny pimple hurt a little. Also, sometimes, I think if I haven't been using much bp on an area like the bottom of my chin way down by my jawline and all of a sudden start putting way more on, then I seem to get a large zit. I would monitor your skin, if it starts getting too irritated, use a little less and/or moisturize more.
