Recommended Posts

i recently stopped using my BP because it gave me redness so i use my Neutrogen Oil Free Acne Wash and Tretinoin at night. I also use this Aveeno moisturizer. I dont know which one is giving me the redness because my face is still red.

Everything you mentioned can cause redness.

Most all topical acne products list redness as a possible side-effect.

Retin-A (tretinoin) always gave me a red face, constantly.

Neutrogena oil-free acne wash is a 2% Salicylic Acid product, which also can cause redness.

That is why using as few medicated products as possible is usually your best bet, fewer side effects and irritation.

Have you tried the Regimen here?

A gentle unmedicated cleanser, 2.5% bp, oil-free unmedicated moisturizer.
