Though you may wanna give it a few days after you do a peel before you put too much stuff on your skin just because the chemicals are still working for about 72 hours. It definately depends on the strength of salicylic you are using. Since salicylic is intended to help absorb oil it is fantastic to do some peels to treat acne!

  7. So i am currently in the same situation, though a few things seem to help for me. My acne was so bad that I went to school for skin care just to try to figure out how to "cure" my own skin. Was clear for a while but it is back with a vengeance!! For supplements Murad actually has one called Pure Skin, it's all the vitamins and such that are supposed to help with acne in 1 place, which is handy. I have been using them about a month and they seem to be helping quite a bit. My skin care is almost e
