Rinse off benzoyl peroxide after some time?

Recommended Posts


My skin seems to be very prone to the acne.org regimen, I've followed it exactly as directed for about 4 weeks now but I keep waking up to flakey skin and sometimes the dead skin cells come up to the surface during the day which is REALLY annoying. Would the Benzoyl peroxide still work if I let it soak in for about 30 minutes (or more?) and then rinse it off so it doesnt cause any flakeyness (otherwise it stays on for atleast 9 hours, my skin doesnt seems to handle that)

Edit: I already tried reducing the application to once a day (over night) for a week now but it still shows the flakeyness, moisturizing overday also doesnt seem to reduce it.

Any help is greatly appriciated!
