Needing help desperately

Recommended Posts

I just got this clean and clear persa gel which is 10% benzoyl peroxide. Now, the bp regimn is to use a generous amount but this is ALOT stronger than 2.5%. So how much should I use? How often should I use it?

Also, can you guys give me some tips on other things I can do?

I do the following right now:

- Avoid touching face

- Wash hair before I go to bed

- Use cetaphil cleanser and moisturizer

- I use 2.5% salicylic acid cleanser foam in the shower after cetaphil

- I started taking vitamin E several times a day

- I use a multivitamin

- I workout daily and shower after

- I'm in great physical shape because of this except because of my acne I look like a guy who uses roids

Sounds like that's a spot treatment, honestly imo, I find that 10% is to concentrated to put all over the face, I really do feel you should find and use a 2.5%. I used proactive a while back cleared me up good that was 2.5% I think and my skin got very sensitive after using. Though that's probably because I've always had sensitive skin. But to me I think it's best to use that as a spot treatment if your already not, and find a 2.5% cleanser.
