Hi everyone-I have been using a benzoyl peroxide cream all over my face for about 2 months and it has been working great. But I was wondering if it is possible to develop a tolerance to BP? I used to use a cleanser with Bp in it and it stopped working after a while. I was wondering if the cream will be different. Any advice would be most appreciated!

Hey! I used a prescription... Triaz 3% benzoyl peroxide on my face, and it didn't work very well. Then, I tried ProActiv (yep, that stuff you see on the infomercials) and it really does work and it's main ingredient is 2.5% benzoyl peroxide. I guess it's just the combination of products - their 3 step system that makes the difference. Give it a try, it worked for me just like it said it would on tv - you'll feel a difference after 2 weeks and your skin will feel smoother, after 4 weeks you'll see a difference, and after about 6 weeks, everyone will see the difference. Good luck!
The think the cream would work much longer than the cleanser. It should keep working.
According to some sources, bacteria cannot grow tolerant to BP. So if it works for you now it should work indefinately. However, I am not an expert so so take my advice as such.
benzoyl peroxide helps a lot in my opinion, its one of the product that i would recommend anybody to use. so far it has done wonder for me. you agree?
BP needs to stay on your skin to really be effective. Using a cleanser with BP that is washed off right away isn't really going to help very much. Get a BP lotion or gel instead.
hi everyone-thanks for the replys! Right now I am using a cream that I leave on all day and it works wonderfully, I do not at this time (knock on wood) have any active bumps:) I geuss what I was most concerned about was whether I would bacome resistent to the cream as I did the wash. I have read that it isn't possible because of how the BP works. I just wanted to know if people ever became resistent. I'm hoping not because I am so happy witht he results!! Thanks for all the replys!!
anyone else? :bouncing:
I made a similar thread and everyone said that your skin canít get used to bp cream like other creams, which is great if thatís the case.
doesn't your skin build up immunity or something with salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide?
