Lactic acid and BP


Ive got this lactic acid peel (50% 2.0 ph) that i brought a while ago, i currently use BP to stop any breakouts. Should i stop the BP while using the lactic acid or is it ok to use it again say 2 days after the peel? The lactic peel is to treat a few tiny ice pick scarring and a few red marks.

Or is there anything i could use besides BP that isnt harsh but still killes bacteria and prevents breakouts?

Thanks alot,

Hi, BP should be fine 2 days after the peel. Just wait until your skin isn't red and raw looking, and of course if the BP burns wash it off. There are other effective meds that a derm could prescribe. 2.5% BP is the best thing out there though, as far as OTC acne treatments.
