How long will this peeling last?

Recommended Posts

I just started the regimen about 5 days ago. There was not any 2.5% or 5% benzoyl peroxide available in my town so I had to use 10% for a couple of days. Then I got the 2.5%. I have been using Proactiv for 3 years so my skin is used to benzoyl peroxide. But maybe I shouldn't have started the regimen with the full dosage. Anyways, I did once I got the 2.5%. Well, my skin is already looking clearer. It's a little dry, but not too bad, except for my chin. My chin is covered in flakes and nothing will keep it moisturized. My chin happens to be the one place on my face where I get the worst acne. Does this have anything to do with the extra flaking? Also, will it always be this way? I am embarrassed to go anywhere because I look like a freak! Thanks for any advice!

I say give it 3 months. Or more. Alpha hydroxy acid lotions will help with the peeling, but don't start using it for a few months.

I don't think so. My acne is worst on my cheeks, but I still get the worst flaking around my chin and jaw area where acne is milder. I think it has more to do with the sensitivity of the skin in the area.
