Try to find something to me...

Recommended Posts

I was on Proactive before 6 months.

At first, it was great! Skin was dry but clear. I was happy, but then...i got cystic deep acne.

I don`t know what it caused? Maybe because i quit with proactiv when it was good.

It was summer and skin after was worst than before. Sea is good for skin. But in summer, body product more sebum.

Now, i decide to give another chance for Proactiv.

I will not use all product in Proactiv. ONLY BP (Repairing lotion) and moisturizer.

In Europe where i live, i can`t find something good with benzoil-peroxid, so i take it from Proactive (i know that is not the cheapest way...).

I started before 3 days.

I put only at night, very small amount... Today, my skin was start to blanch and it is red.

Red patches are more visible.

My plan is that I put BP only at night, but now... I don`t know is it good?!

I read about situation when people said that skin was worsten then before using a BP.

I don`t know what to do now?! Continue to use it or stop?

I forgot to say, i put a lot of moisturize. Is it a problem? It shouldn`t be...

Can I try with BP but every second or third night?

In other days, in morning and in the night i will put Vichy Normaderm (i have use it till i started with Proactiv)

I thing that is BP too strong for me. I have very sensitive skin, especially on my cheek and chin.

Can BP help me if i put 3 days in a row and 5 or 7 days i take a break and again...

I am afraid that my skin will be immune on BP...

What do you thing about it?

Can BP on this way get worst my acne?

Maybe I should stop with BP?

Somebody have regime like my?

What can you recommend for me?

Sorry for my english!!!

Proactive didn't work for me. You might be immune or allergic? Try natural oil like tee tree oil? Look up "jessfoliation" on here. She suggests gentle exfoliating and neosporin cream. Good luck.
