Some of us adults are worried not only about acne but alo wrinkles. I've always understood that moisturizers help prevent wrinkles, so I can't help but wonder if drying my skin out with BP and other acne products won't make me wrinkle faster?

Deciding between wrinkles or acne is like deciding between Bush or Kerry... I don't think I'll be happy with either!

I'm 34 and I think these things do cause wrinkles and skin damage. So, I've compromised after 24 years of doing terrible things to my skin, by using Dan's BP (the most awesome sutff ever!) only when I notice I'm starting to break out or just spot treating.

Hopefully dermabrasion will take care of most of the wrinkles I got after a deep glycolic peel that went badly for me back in my 20's, but I was young and didn't use any sunscreen after the peel. Dumb, dumb, dumb, I can look back now and see where I went wrong, but that doesn't help now. mad.gifwink.gif

I bought from Dan too (they need better packaging mine arrived squished with gel in the bubble wrap - yuck).

Someone needs to come out with a moisturizer WITH BP INCLUDED. Must be a way to do that? It shouldn't have to be two seperate products.

Also wondering why someone (Dan?) doesn't make an even milder BP gel? It's hard to imagine that one product fits all skin types... I'd imagine maybe teenagers could benefit from a 3.5% gel while many adults might be able to get away with as little as 1.5%?

you could always mix a little bp with your moisturizer/sunscreen in the morning.

if your worried about wrinkles.. there is a product called neutrogena anti wrinkle anti blemish .. it comes in both a cream and a cleanser i believe.. my friend is 36.. and has some problem skin.. she swears by it.. says it clears her breakouts up and prevents wrinkles... its contains 2% SA and retinol i believe.

i tried it and it really did nothing much for me, could be worth a look tho.
