    Persa gel 10 Benzoyl peroxide

    My progress while using 10% Benzoyl Peroxide (Clean & Clear)
  2. So I've always had nice skin and in the last couple of months I have been breaking out badly. I've been using persa gel 10 for the last almost 4 weeks and it has improved my skin a little but I still break out. I actually popped 3 acne cysts, and lots of pimples and I just hope that it won't make me have more breakouts. I'm just depressed about it all. I want to stick with a gentle cleanser (cetaphil), persa gel 10 (10% Benzoyl peroxide) and a moisturizer but I just don't know if I should sti

  4. Not to be rude or anything but how can a wash be gentle with benzoyl peroxide in it? I mean a BP wash with the lowest concentration, no skin irritants (like menthol) and no beads. That's what I mean...

    Dry And Peeling Skin

    I dont think there's a quicker way to make it dry faster. Maybe gently spread it out more? I dont know. But I am going through the same problem as you (regarding the dryness). My cheeks and chin are REALLY dry from the benzoyl peroxide and no amount of moisturizer seems to help. However we do have to be patient because our skin needs time to heal, so be patient. Good luck
  6. Use gentle washes that include benzoyl peroxide to kill the bacteria that contributes to acne. And also dont pick at your face. You risk spreading the bacteria deeper into your pores and into other pores that will later become acne. Our fingers are filled with bacteria and picking at your face will only make matters worse. Good luck

    Acne Is Destorying My Life(Pics)

    You should try 2.5 benzoyl peroxide. Benzoyl peroxide will help unclog pores, dry up sebum, and kill the bacteria that makes acne. Less bacteria = less acne. You have to give it time though, at least a month or 2. But be prepared to have dry skin so go find an oil-free noncomodogenic moisturizer. Good luck!
  8. Dont put anything on your face since you are taking accutane. I agree with the user above and you should speak to your derm to see if they can increase the dosage of the medication. Good luck!

    Terrible Acne 17 Years Old

    If it makes you feel better, your acne doesnt seem severe. It seems like moderate acne. And keep using the benzoyl peroxide. I dont know why your doctor would tell you to cut off the moisturizer since extremely dry skin isn't healthy skin. If anything buy sunscreen that also moisturizes while you use the BP so you lessen the risk of your red spots turning to dark spots. Also if you want use tepezcohuite pomade which is good to help get rid of acne and also to help speed up skin repairment. Good

    What Are These Bumps That Won't Go Away?

    I hope someone answers this thread with the answer because I have the same thing. I thought and still think it's cystic acne, and even though it seems like it has evened out if I press on it I can still feel a bump and sometimes it even hurts. Im tempted to squeeze it but this only makes things worse. Whatever you do, DONT PICK AT IT. Trust me, or else you risk spreading the bacteria and breaking out even more, and you dont want that. Good luck!

    Bad Breakout?

    The same thing basically happened to me. Only difference is that I never really broke out badly. The worst I've ever had was 3 pimples on one cheek and those went away relatively quickly. However since July my face has BROKEN out badly with cystic acne, pimples, everywhere, yuck. I've tried to drink more water, and I started using Persa Gel 10 which contains 10% benzoyl peroxide. This is kinda helping but it is making my skin EXTREMELY dry. Also if you have sensitive skin DONT use the persa gel

    Red Marks At University!

    I use a pomade called tepezcohuite for dark spots and red marks. The pomade is amazing. It really helps heal quicker red spots and dark spots to help them return back to the natural color of the skin. Also this pomade helps get rid of acne by speeding up the healing process and it also makes the oil and sebum rise to the surface quicker which means the skin can heal even more quickly. I had a huge red spot on my face from a cystic pimple and it went away completely in a week by applying the poma

    Didnt Work

    Didnt Work

    I had read good reviews for this so I tried it out. I had mostly whiteheads. Anyways, after about 3 weeks of trying this, it really did NOTHING for me. As a matter of fact, my breakouts got WORSE and my whiteheads turned to cystic acne and inflamed pimples. I wouldnt recommend this,

    My Acne Story

    UPDATE: SEPTEMBER 10, 2019 So since my last update, my routine has been to wash my face in the morning with Shea Moisture African Black soap, and to put a moisturizer that helps with dark spots too. My nighttime routine is the Benzoyl Peroxide 10% Neutrogena Cleanser, & I apply Persa Gel 10% BP from Clean & Clear on my active acne. I have been doing this for 2 days since my acne got even WORSE and I have some spots that are raised, and even kinda painful, which I'm presuming is cystic

    My Acne Story

    UPDATE: AUGUST 29, 2015 So I let my cystic pimple heal but it started to get more raised, so in desperation I picked at it and popped it (I know I shouldn't have) and now it's an open wound and red, and I'm worried because I was squeezing hard and eventually nothing was coming out but if I touch it I can still feel a small bump inside my skin. The rest of my cheek looks less inflamed unlike 6 days ago (the picture I posted earlier) but the dark/brown spots need to go. I have been using Neutr
