Pink/light Red Marks From Benzoyl Peroxide? Can I Still Use Chemical Peel?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

So a few days ago I applied too much 5% Benzoyl Peroxide to my face, when i woke up i could see where i had applied it and there was a red/pink marks all over my forehead. They didn't itch at all and were not dry or irritable they were just there, I did try and moisturise but it didnt seem to make much difference, from close up its hardly noticeable but far away you can see the outline. Is this just a general reaction? or a burn? should I leave it, or treat?

And also, I was going to do a chemical peel on myself today (30% Glycolic peel), would this be safe? or should I completely miss out the bits where I've become red from Benzoyl Peroxide?

Thanks so much!!!!
