    Benzoyl peroxide

    Hello I have been using Benzoyl peroxide since one month and have now stopped using it. How long should I wait before going out in sun again without any sunscreen, as any type of sunscreen breaks me out.
  2. I am finally clearing up with Minocycline 100mg prescription and benzoyl peroxide 5%. Been using it for a month both together and its starting to show. The problem is I have horrible red marks all over my face (not scars but reddish even blueish marks) and I know aloe vera really helps with this. My question is how should I implement it into my daily routine? In the morning i wash my face with a light cleanser then put on benzoyl peroxide and leave it for 10 minutes, after that I wash it off and
  3. Hello,I pray that you all are feeling well today!I love Acne.org and have been using it since July 2018. It has been the only product to consistently clear my acne!However, I have one concern. When I apply the second step (benzoyl peroxide), the fumes always burn my eyes (I am diligent about not applying it too close to my eyes). Previously, I read that I may just have to get used to using the product, but I've been using it daily (in the mornings) since October 2018 with no relief. The burning
  4. See the NutritionFacts.org video, Benzoyl Peroxide vs. Tea Tree Oil for Acne. Other relevant tea tree oil videos: Is Tea Tree Oil Safe? Does Tea Tree Oil Have Hormonal Side Effects? Edit: also check out the list of sources cited for each video.
  5. Hi, I am 15 years old and suffer from acne. I have started my skincare routine which is made up of African black soap, a pore unclogging face scrub that contains sacrylic acid, a toner, and a moisturizer which is just cocoa butter. after these products, i apply benzoyl peroxide and go to sleep. I am on day 3 of this routine and am noticing my skin is very very dry throughout the day. I lather lotion and it dries up 20 minutes later. I'm experiencing a lot of skin flaking, occasional burning, and
  6. I have started using the Regimen consistently about one and a half week ago. I follow the instructions precisely. Unfortunately, I have been experiencing some (known) side-effects of the benzoyl peroxide. Using the Cleanser? No problems at all! However, when I apply the benzoyl peroxide on my skin, it starts to burn/sting after some seconds. This is an unpleasant but manageable feeling and it is supposed to dissappear after my skin gets used to benzoyl peroxide, so I hope it does... When the
  7. My benzoyl peroxide seems to be "caking" on my skin. When I rub my finger on my skin after application, a TON of the cream seems to come off. I thought my skin was just dry, but after some experimenting I realized that the product is the culprit. Anyone have any good suggestions for other BPs that don't cake on when you leave it on your skin?
  8. Most people out there have acne that's nice enough to dry up on its own with or without acne treatment. A couple of years ago, I just started getting these ridiculously stubborn clogged pores that will never go away no matter what I put on my skin. Also, nothing can prevent them from forming. They are extremely deep and they become inflamed spontaneously. The plugs that I get are huge, solid plugs that are like splinters. People tell me not to squeeze them but if I don't squeeze them out, they w
  9. hi! i am new here. i have a HORRIBLE CASE of acne due to PCOS and nothing seems to work. i just started on birth control pills for my PCOS and hopefully it will work on my acne as well. and recently, i have started using BENZOYL PEROXIDE (BENZAC AC 5%). it has been a week and a half and yea, it helps dry out my pimples (but there are still new popping pimples) and i am grateful because the situation has improved even for a bit. but it really makes my skin dry but nothing that couldnt be helped w
  10. Back in April I stopped using BP... like many others, I read up about long term affects of using it and how it can be damaging to your skin. Well, I regret it. Looking back, that’s when my skin started acting up. What’s damaging to your skin is acne. Shortly after weaning myself of BP, I broke out into a million closed comedones. Miserable. After much distress I went back to BP. The purging stage is REAL OMG. Almost all of the CC have turned into big, red inflamed pimples and some cysts. My face

    Skin burn

    I’m in the week 2 of the regimen. I’m really scared because when I put the benzoyl peroxide on my skin I feel my skin burning and really irritated (this happens while applying it no after). I wonder if it’s normal... PLEASE HELP
  12. Hey, so I've been using BPO since about 3 months now and my skin is not completly clear but its getting there. I've been using Cetaphil as a moisturizer and my skin hasnt been dry because of it, but recently i went swimming and noticed that my skin gets dry and flaky after taking a swim which is not only uncomfortable but also kinda embarassing, so i wanted to ask if there is anything i could do about that? Like maybe there are other moisturizers that wont come off? Thanks ahead!
  13. A little while ago I had a huge breakout all over my face. I only ever get cystic pimples, no only one or two at a time on my cheeks, but I had breakouts all over the place. I ended up getting my period a week later and the breakouts slowly calmed down a little, down this time I was seeing my breakouts leave red marks that last a while. Fast forward to now. I went to the dermatologist and he prescribed me minocycline 100mg twice a day, clindamycin, and told me to get a benzoyl perox

    Is my skin purging???

    So what happened was that I stopped using my benzoyl peroxide lotion a couple months ago. Also a bunch of stress happened, overdried my skin, so I broke out. I ended up getting a TON of closed comedones. And a few cysts! This week I started using my benzoyl peroxide again. There is now less closed comedones but a few large pimples where most of the closed comedones are around. I’ve used benzoyl peroxide before with great results, but I don’t know if I remember my face purging. Not used to this c
  15. I've been on the Acne.org regimen for over a year now and it has helped me a lot. Currently my skin has turned worse again so I'm using more of BP to counter the acne. That lead to my skin getting very dry and flaky again. I'm wondering how much I can and should counter this by moisturizing more. In the Acne.org description it says "Benzoyl peroxide has a drying and peeling effect which is thought to help prevent this occurence and tends to transform red or ruddy, irritated looking skin into ba
  16. so maybe like two weeks ago i applied benzoyl peroxide 10% to my cheeks and under my jaw ,at first i thought it was working on my mild acne i had maybe like 5 zits on my face ,i also had a bunch of little bumbs ,i stopped using it because i noticed it made me break out and two weeks later i have pustules and whiteheads all over my face and it seems to get worse everyday ,i dont know what to do,someone please help me !has this happened to anyone else?
  17. The best my skin ever does - regardless of diet, vitamin supplements, etc... is when I’m using benzoyl peroxide. I have been on accutane, all of the antibiotics, birth control pills, supplements (some of which I do believe help), and of course all the millions of acne products. Recently, my skin was doing so well I thought maybe I didn’t need benzoyl peroxide anymore. I started feeling concerned about putting the chemicals on my face etc... and wanted to try a more natural approach with vitamins
  18. Hi everyone, I bit about myself. I am 37 years old male and I have been battling with moderate back acne for the past 20 years. I was taking doxycycline for about 18 months about 5 years ago and it worked remarkably well, I was also applying duac lotion after showers as well. About 3-4 months after I stopped taking doxycycline the acne came back with a vengeance. I Tried during the years a wide variety of lotions, gels an etc for acne with moderate success at best. Couple of y
  19. I have been on the regimen since March 11th and I'm confused because initially I had bad breakouts on my cheeks. That cleared up very well with the treatment in the first month then I began using AHA+ on April 11th. I loved the results I saw from the AHA as well, but Around April 17th I noticed tiny bumps popping up on only 1 side of my nose and they progressed to both sides and actual nose as the weeks went by. I wasn't sure what was causing it and thought maybe I wasn't cleaning well enough si
  20. Thought I'd update again as it's been awhile. It's been 15 months (next week) since I finished my last course of lymecycline. I have been keeping my skin clear with nightly use of benzoyl peroxide (Benzac AC 2.5% which I have to buy from either eBay or Amazon since it's not available in UK shops for some reason). I still don't eat much dairy, I use almond milk on my cereal instead (but I still eat some dairy, I love cheese too much to never eat it!) but no longer take any supplements or ACV.
  21. I have been using the regimen benzoyl peroxide for over 10 years. I am now 42 and after trying to quit using it twice, the third time was a charm. I have learned a lot about myself and acne during this process. After using this product for such a long time, DO NOT just quit. Reduce the amount you use, for example, if you use it twice daily in a certain amount, reduce either down the amount you use one of the times, etc. I used it twice a day in a quarter size regularly. I reduced down to tw
  22. My wife started having some heavy acne for the first time in her life, so when she visited dermatologist they recommended Benzoyl peroxide 5%. After applying it twice, once in the morning and once at night, the following morning her entire face was dark red, peeling, it was horrible she looked like a tomato. As soon as that happened she stopped using the cream right away, it's been two weeks since that happened and her inflammation has only gotten worse. We had to wait two weeks since the local
  23. Hello. Curious to see what others were prescribed/advised these two and how you apply them. My doc said differin during the morning every 3 days and benzaclin each night. I had irritation from benzaclin on night 3 but figured that I might've used too much too fast. Because of this I did not start differin yet. I ceased use immediately. I have been using Neutrogena's BP clear pore wash for 10+ years and never had a problem, so I'm assuming that the concentration was too high for something I wasn'
  24. Ok so I’m an idiot. I had some mild acne on my cheeks like 4-5 pimples on each side and they usually come up only during finals which I don’t mind, but since a lot of my family members kept pointing it out and asking what was wrong i got sick of it & decided to use benzoyl peroxide 5% which a dermatologist told me to get a while back. Anyway i applied it and then waited till it dried then applied some moisturizer & it was fine. next day i had some redness didnt think much of it so I appl
  25. Sorry went a little nuts with the tags on this thread probably. Anyway, Ive been meaning to make a post about this for months. I literally cannot stop using BP gel (cream? gel? not sure its white). I have been using it pretty much every time I shave/wash my face for years. I wash my face about once a day, sometimes every two days. I have good hygiene, but I find if I wash more than that my face looks 10 times worse. Also, the BP is necessary every time now. I will have the same areas (on s
