Week 1 of my regimen

Nice to meet you. I'm an adult acne sufferer in my early twenties from Australia, and while I have a mild case of reoccurring acne, I have very bright skin pigmentation from previous acne (some of these marks are more than a year old). My goal in the regimen is to completely clear acne so that these marks can fade.

Currently using a 4% benzoyl peroxide as prescribed by my GP. Considering switching to a 2.5%.

I've been using one knuckle of BP, and a full finger of moisturiser.

My face is slightly itchy and stinging. It feels dry yet oily at the same time, especially when I contour my face (pulling faces, opening mouth etc.) It also stings when I use the moisturiser.

Face is slightly red where BP has been applied, and the redness isn't present on my lips and eyes (where BP hasn't been applied).

Broke out with two pimples this week that have quickly gone down. Slight skin peeling toward the end of the week around my nose.

Red marks from previous acne is still present. I'm hoping they'll begin to fade as the treatment progresses.
