I need Help!!!!! with using retin-a & bp gel?

Recommended Posts

I am on retin-a but I know that using bp they offset one another, how can I fit both into a routine? can I use bp gel one day, and then apply my retin-a and still have them both work? please help me.

Don't do it. If you use these together, even on alternating nights it will cause some SEVERE irritation for your skin (peeling, redness). Also, I've read that they cancel eachother out. I don't know how, but that's what the derms say so I guess it's true. If I were you, I would use the Retin-A and forget the BP. Retin-A is a long-term solution that actually prevents, while BP only helps to treat current acne.
