Once you are clear, how do you go off BP?

Recommended Posts

For those of you who are now clear (and is still on this board ofcourse), how do you go off BP? Obviously you dont want to BP for the rest of your life, and your skin may still be a little dry?

Do your acne come back afterwards if you stop BP for several weeks?

Im concerned about the after effects of BP.

Unless you have grown out of acne, when you stop bp the acne is likely to return.

The way to come off it would be to decrease your dosage to once a day and see how your skin does. If you are still clear after a month or so, then you can consider decreasing that once a day amount, or cut it out altogether and see if you remain clear. If not, then you obviously still have acne-prone skin and will need to continue to treat it.
