Bp when taking retin-a micro?

Recommended Posts

I know that bp is good at killing zits and preventing them. I also knmwo retin-a micro is good for preventing zits.

It is safe to sue bp in the morning for example and at night put on retin-a micro?

I'm not sure but I thought I read w/ my retin a micro stuff that bp is counter active - I will look and get back with you - has anyone else heard this?

BP and Retin-A work very well together. Either one of those treatments alone isn't enough to kill off acne. BP attacks the bacteria only, while retin-A stimulates cell renewal. Together, they work to eliminate 2 out of the 3 factors in pimple formation (third factor is sebum secretion).

I would follow whatever your dr. said but here is some info from teh retin a micro site:

"Can I use an over-the-counter product that contains benzoyl peroxide at the same time I'm using RETIN-A MICRO?

Tretinoin and benzoyl peroxide neutralize each other when applied at the same time. Talk to your doctor about the use of these two products in conjunction with each other."
