Salicylic acid cleanser + the acne.org Benzoyl peroxide treatment

Recommended Posts

So as the title suggests I'm trying to incorporate a salicylic acid cleanser in the normal acne.org regimen. I'm just asking for advice whether this is safe or not. Basically, I'll be swapping the acne.org cleanser for maybe the Neutrogena oil free acne wash since it has salicylic acid then continue with the normal routine of using the Benzoyl peroxide treatment and finally moisturize. Is this safe? 

Thanks to anyone who clears my doubts.

It is safe if your skin can tolerate it. Begin with a few times per week and build frol there. If your skin handles it well, try to leave the cleanser for a few minutes in your skin to allow the bha to do its job.

I always tell people to wait until they are completely clear using the regimen as outlined. Then, once you're clear, you can add in 1 variable at a time, like swapping out cleansers.

From my research, yes, adding sal acid should be ok once your skin has become accustomed to benzoyl peroxide.
