How Long Do I Need To Be On The Regimen For?


I have mild - moderate acne and would like to ask how long will I need to be on the Reigmen for? I will be starting the whole process tomorrow but I wanted to know will I have to be on it for the rest of my life or does it actually kill of acne?

I have tried things like roaccutane and the acne came back - (I was only on it for 3 months)

How long you need to be on the Regimen varies for everyone. BP does kill acne bacteria, but only for about 10-12 hours, then it must be reapplied to keep killing new bacteria. Benzoyl peroxide is not an acne cure, but when used as directed, is very effective at suppressing acne symptoms until acne naturally resolves on its own.

I wish you great success and clear skin! :)
