  1. So I don't follow the regiment exactly, I only do it at night. I wear very expensive clothes to work and I have previously had BP ruin my clothes, because as the day goes on and I sweat/work etc it runs off my face and on to my clothes. Does anyone know if this stains?
  2. 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?
  3. I am on the regimen. My skin is not fully clear. However, I am keen in bleaching my skin abit. Can I bleach my skin while I am still on the Acne Regimen? If yes, how should i go about doing it? Like are there specific products/brands that I can use? Thanks. Constructive answers are appreciated.
  4. Will using benzoyl peroxide bleach my skin? Seriously, I have medium toned skin and I applied some benzoyl peroxide to my skin tonight and I am freaking out about if over time will it turn my skin to a lighter colour? Also will I get redness or anything? I am seriously thinking of discontinuing the use of this product already! I'm so scared of getting redness and a light coloured face
  5. Has anyone with dark brown/black hair experienced bleaching of the eyebrows or hairline? I've been using a 4% BP face wash (PanOxyl) and have not noticed any bleaching of my black hair, but have been told PanOxyl products don't bleach... not sure if that's true, I do know however that not all people with dark hair are affected by hair lightening. Mostly afraid that the over-night application as opposed to my usual quick wash would lead to my eyebrows changing color.. Any advice would be reall
  6. I really want to know the answer to this. I'm referring to my eyebrows, which I usually get lightened slightly at my salon to better match my medium brown hair (brows are thick and black). I know you can't wax brows and have no plans to do this, but can't get a straight answer or dyeing/tinting/bleaching them safely. I asked my derm and she said coloring head hair is fine but she wasn't sure about brows or other facial hair... Anyone bleach their brows or other facial hair while using a
  7. Is it safe to use a low dose of hyroduinone/skin bleach while on Accutane to lighten skin? I know that while on Accutane, skin is very sensitive and should be left alone as much as possible, but would it be harmful to use a very little amount of hydroquinone mixed with moisturizer to lighten scars/overall complexion? While on Accutane, my skin has gotten darker due to being more sun sensitive and living in a very hot region.
  8. I am urgently taking 60mg of Claravis (30 with breakfast and 30 with dinner). I was curious if using Obagi's Blender from the Nuderm system was a good option to use to even out and get rid of scarring. I already have the product and know it is used with topical Retin-a to achieve a smooth, even tone. I can't find anything regarding its use with isotretinoin. Any experience or advice? I have some really red scarring I want to try to get rid of an even out. *Currently not urgently (thanks autocor
  9. I started the regimen recently & I started having some concerns about bleaching. Prior to starting the regimen I used a 4% bp wash and this was enough to slightly bleach my pillow cases. In the past, when I might have been on a different bp regimen, I took a nap on my couch and the bp from my face left a large orange spot on one of the cushions. I'm worried about bleaching the clothing & pillows of a s/o, or couches that I may happen to crash on at friends places. Does anybody have any e
  10. Hey, so I've been using the Regiment for a few months now, and like it. It works. But I have gotten some pretty serious bleaching on my cheeks and after searching I haven't found much on this topic, or how to remedy it. If anyone has some pointers on how to fix bleached skin, preferably something I can do at home, please say so. I'm 15, a ginger with very light skin. Some parts of my cheeks are very white compared to the rest of my face, it does not entirely fade even also, there are
  11. Good Day all. I have dark spots that i want treated. Can someone please recommend a good skin lightening cream to get rid of my dark spots and lighten my complexion without irritating my skin with break outs. Appreciate it. Thanks in advance.
  12. I have been using the regimen for close to three years now. I have been using white sheets to avoid the bleaching effect. The time has come to purchase new sheets, and since the white sheets tend to get grubby looking, I am thinking about ordering a cream color. Has anyone tried cream sheets? Does benzoyl peroxide bleach/discolor cream?
