So I"ve been using benzoyl peroxide gel morning and night for over a month now.. and my skin as pretty much stayed the sam, or gotten slightly worse. So I am thinking of maybe switching it up and using a salicylic acid treatment in the morning and then bp at night? Or the other way around, maybe? I just don't know anymore, I am getting so frustrated!! But is it okay to use both BP and salicylic acid, or does that pretty much burn off your skin? Any experiences/advice are welcome!!
i think you should stick to one product or the other. too many chemicals and products on your face can make your break out, make your face really red and peely and itchy and will just make your skin look worse. but i also read in a magazine about a product that has salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide but i dont know. i guess it just depends on your skin type.
good luck
I used a cleanser with salicylic acid every night and when I get huge pimples I use benzoyl peroxide. That helps clear my skin.
Ive been using benzoyl peroxide now for about 6 weeks. I have very mild acne but have seen no improvement,seem to be getting few extra spots i dont usually get. I have been generaly disappointed by it considering its reputation.
I use a clean and clear face wash with salycilic acid in it which opens your pores so oxygen can get in. I dry my face Then i put on benzoyl peroxide because it gets into your pores better and kills all the bacteria. and my skin doesnt really react badly to it, ive been doing it for like 2 years.
WanderingSoul, I've read that skin can get worse while you're using BP because your skin is in the process of purging all the stuff out! In a couple of weeks it should get better, even if you're using BP alone.

It's ok to use BHA and BP together, but they're both very drying, so you should probably moisturize afterwards so your skin doesn't feel the need to produce even oil.
