  1. I started my benzoyl peroxide 5% (Cintex Brand) I know it's not necessarily the acne.org BP however, I've been following the forums on this site and have found the information Dan shares about acne and benzoyl peroxide is helpful and comforting. So I wanna know if I can put the glycolic acid 10% on my face after BP at night? My face is sensitive as hell, & since it's 5% I am only prescribed once at night. It cleared me up in the past this way but I NEVER had embarrassing red marks like t
  2. First off, I'm a 23 y/o Male with Combination/Sensitive/Acne Prone Skin. I've been using Dans 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide for just over a month and a half, once a day (at night) and it really works. It cleared my Acne like nothing within 4 days and within the first 2 weeks of using it, i only encountered one pimple that disappeared in 2 days and after that, not a single one. But since Thursday night (which is 2 days from now) I've run in to a problem where certain areas on my face like the right sid
  3. Hi im 16 and recently I've been getting really bad acne. It's mostly redness and hyperpigmentation with the occasional whiteheads. I got on Epiduo and took it for 2 months but didn't notice any effect, it was staining my clothes and my bedsheets, and was really annoying and depressing to use. I researched online and saw that Tea Tree Oil was good for my type of acne. I've used it for a couple days now, and the redness seems to be slightly better although I have more whiteheads. im also taking
  4. Hi guys, So I've had pretty mild acne on my face, and more severe on my shoulders and back. For my face, I've been using benzoyl peroxide for around 3 weeks. I started with about a week and a half of using 10%, but then realized that concentration was probably way too high. During that week, I was breaking out pretty bad. I then switched to 2.5%, and my face had calmed down considerably for almost a week, with only one pimple. But the last few days, I've been having a lot of whiteheads pop
  5. Hi I know this is unlikely since if you're clear of acne you're not likely to still be on this forum but... has anybody had any positive long long term results from using doxycycline with Duac? (Benzoyl peroxide) more so with adult acne acne as I hear this is FAR more stubborn. I have just been prescribed doxy, however all I'm seeing is people say acne comes back worse a few months after taking. Naturally this is putting me off taking it and I'm just thinking either exhaust every natur
  6. I am on my 1st week of the regimen, I just got my package on Monday. A lot of people say that the BP usually stings a little for them. But when I started using the BP, it did not sting or burn for me at all. In fact, the moisturizer stung a little and tingled my lips, but nothing that bad. It didn't make my face red and it makes my skin soft. I am just concerned if the BP is working for me at all?
  7. Hi! I just want to share my journey and ask for some opinions as well. I have been having problems with pimples since I was in college, but it did not really bother me a lot since it's not that severe and I stayed mostly clear. Just a few here and there especially when I have my period. However, I think my acne situation got worse now that I am 25. I have tried loads of products, including costly visits to dermatologists. Some have worked for a short time until my skin decides to betray me a
  8. Hi, Iv'e been on the regimen for more than a month now and im up to the full fingers length of bp. For some reason it takes a long time to absorb into my skin. Sometimes 20-30 min. Is this normal? Thanks, Matt
  9. So I have been using a 5% benzoyl peroxide cleanser everyday and it has improved my bacne, however i still have some pimples on my back. Because of this all of my sheets, pillow cases, and pj shirt have been bleached. My sheets and pillowcases are a light shade of brown. Would benzoyl peroxide bleach white materials?
  10. Hello I'm 21 and have had acne since i was 13, if i dont constantly wash my face it gets VERY oily. I went on isotretinoin when i was 17 and it has helped my body acne and clear my face a little but the amount of spots i'm still getting is constantly getting me down to the point i dont leave the house. When i wake up i use a Garnier exfoliating scrub which has salicylic acid 2.5%, then throughout the day at work i wipe my face with a deep cleansing face wipe once or twice. Then after i f
  11. Hi everyone, I just wanted to write about and share what products have worked for me. I've been clear of acne and clogged pores for a significant amount of time now (I can't remember when I started) and I can confidently say that this is the perfect regime for me. AM: Cleanse: Alpha Hydrox Foaming Face Wash Exfoliate: Alpha Hydrox 10% Glycolic Acid Enhanced Lotion SPF: Ombrelle SPF 60 Face Ultra-Fluid Lotion (1/4 tsp) PM: Makeup/Sunscreen Remover: Jojoba Oil
  12. I don't have anymore acne, all I have is a lot of post acne marks on my face (red dots on the face) I heard BP irritates the skin and makes the red dots even more redder Would it be ok if in the morning I used the cleanser, the moistorizor and the suncreen and at night use only the cleanser, AHA+, moistorizor and jajoba oil?
  13. I have been prescribed cyclimycin and benzoyl peroxide but the pharmacy only gave me Dalacin T which is cyclimycin phosphate and 1% alcohol but with no bp however the Dalacin T 1% is 1% alcohol should I follow up and ask my gp or will this be fine? Also how has this topical been for other users? Is it effective?
  14. I've been on the regimen for 1.5 months now, using the acne.org products (cleanser, bp and moisturizer). In the first month my acne cleared up quickly and everything seemed to be going great. I think I used too much BP 2weeks ago and it burned my skin badly. My skin was super dry and hard and flaky. The redness was unbelievable, looked like I was in a mask... I went off the bp completely for 4 days and my skin seemed to return to normal... I used a very small amount of BP last night and this
  15. I'm thinking of switching from Tea Tree Oil to Benzoyl Peroxide just because how slow Tea Tree Oil is working for me. It's too slow for me. Will there be any problem if I switch? Also, how many times a day do I apply Benzoyl? I currently apply Tea Tree Oil twice a day.
  16. Is it normal for your skin to turn a little yellow while using benzoyl peroxide??
  17. Okay so I started using benzoyl peroxide (2.5%) overnight about 3 weeks ago and I had built up to it effectively - no red, flakiness, etc. then I went to Florida and had to stop applying my benzoyl peroxide + clindamycin overnight for a week. When I started back up, my skin got red and peely again. I picked off the peely skin and applied clindamycin and benzoyl peroxide last night and woke up this morning with BRIGHT PINK skin directly where I'd applied it. I'm scared I applied it on raw skin an
  18. Hi, I have been applying OXY 10 BP lotion on my face twice daily for over the past month, as part of my adult acne treatment. The problem is, the BP when rubbed on to the skin of my face, just stays there and dries to become a visibly white paint like substance on my dark-skinned face. If I leave it on my face longer, it was become powdery and simply flake off when touched or rubbed. This appears to me as if my skin has formed a barrier of sorts, that is blocking the BP from actually absor
  19. Okay, so I have mild to moderate acne, mostly around my mouth and cheeks in form of whiteheads. I have very sensitive skin that gets dry and peels very easily. I was prescribed benzaclin about two years ago and used it sparingly, and it helped my skin but recently my skin has started to get not so good again. I went to the doc and was prescribed Retin-A Micro and Benzaclin again. What I usually do is wash my face with salicylic acid in the morning, moisturize with SPF, and at night use a BP/sa
  20. I am a female teen and have been using the acne.org regimen for a little over 5 months. Up until the last month it worked as it said it would, I was completely clear. However, within the last month the benzoyl peroxide has caused extreme redness, dryness and itchiness. I did not change anything, that I am aware of. Because of the extreme discomfort of the benzoyl peroxide, I took a break for about a week. I started using a natural regimen recommended by a women with much knowledge in natural
  21. I have been using duac (5% benzoyl peroxide and 1.2% clindamycin) for 2 months already. My acne decreased but there are still a lot of pimples and I really cannot see significant changes. I am thinking to follow dan's regimen so I plan to switch to benzac which active ingredient is benzoyl peroxide as well (but no clindamycin). Do you guys think that I will experience another purging or breakout once I switch even though they are both benzoyl peroxide. I don't want another purging.
  22. This is going to be a long post. A little background info, I have had acne since I was 10 years old, and I am turning 20 this year, finally with clear skin. I call the past 10 years the "decade of hell". I think we all encounter some kind of moment where we go, damn, I've had enough of this crap. And thus began my last ditch efforts to salvage my skin, which I am happy to say has finally become beautiful. Having lurked on this forum for years, I feel like its time for me to give bac
  23. Last night, I applied Spectro Gel (included benzoyl peroxide in it) to a couple pimples last night. I only applied a small amount and slept with it on. I washed it off this morning and noticed where I applied it- it is now red around the pimples and just on my skin. I am really scared because I am hoping this redness isn't permanent because right now it's pretty prominent. Can someone tell me if my skin will stay red forever, or if I ruined my skin! Or will it eventually go away if I stop using
  24. Hello everyone! Im on my 2nd week using the regimen. My acne is getting worse and not getting any better. Pics included but please don't be hard on me. I am thinking twice posting these and the pics. I am religiously doing what is told but my acne got worse. With full revenge! I am having dry skin though I moisturize with two full pumps and still flaking. I only have 5-8 zits before but now is depressing. Should I stop the regimen having this outcome on 2nd week?
  25. Hi everyone! I am currently on my 5th week of the Acne.org Regimen. I use water to cleanse my face, then use a 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide and moisturize with 2-3 pumps of Cerave Moisturizing Lotion+Jojoba Oil. My face is starting to really clear up now, but I was outside yesterday and got sunburned. I applied the Regimen as usual last night and this morning but was wondering if this is ok since I am sunburned, or if I should take a day or two off from BP. Thanks for your help!
