How Bad Is It? Moderate?

Recommended Posts

Few photos of my face.. Sorry for bad quality..

My Forehead is clean, I started using Dercome Clear [bP 4%] week and a half ago.. One face side got a little cleaner but on other side, I noticed more acne than before. Especially whiteheads.. Normal?

Also, my face is not red anymore from BP but it still dries my skin a lot and it itches.

Your skin doesn't looks pretty good!

Yes it can be quite normal to have some breakouts still even if it only on a certain area. My daughter has been using benzoyl peroxide and following the Regimen for about 6 weeks now. It has really helped but she is still getting breakouts on her left cheek. You have only been using benzoyl peroxide for a short time and apparently you need to wait three months to see the full clearing.

So hang in there.

Make sure you have a moisturizer that won't clog your pores and use it as much as you want.

Maybe try a lower strength BP? Studies have shown that 2.5% is just as effective as 5% or 10%. And yes, as Hope said, make sure to moisturize (maybe add in jojoba oil?)..and add a gentle cleanser (like Cetaphil) if you haven't already.

And no, you're skin does not look bad at all. It looks pretty good! I would say mild acne, but I'm not a dermatologist.

Thanks everyone!

My face is currently worse than ever I guess BP has to do something wth it..

About moisturizer.. I'm currently using Nivea Soft. I know it has oil in it but I'm using it for about a week and I didn't notice any breakouts and skin absorbs it very well. Should I continue with it or try something else?

One more thing.. What to do about dead skin on face? Remove it? Can I use honey for this? It showed pretty good results one time..

I just checked the ingredients to Nivea Soft and it has a few rather comedogenic and irritating ingredients. Doesn't mean that you will break out. Everyone's skin reacts differently. I use Cerave and find that it works great! A lot of people like Cetaphil too.

And yeah, some gentle exfoliating might help remove the dead skin cells. If you were pleased with honey, then use that! :)
