Re: too harsh?

I have been washing my face with a dove bar twice a day. Then lastnight my face got a little dry. I have a dual action moisturizer. It's ingredient is the sylic acid (or however you spell it). And this morning, my face was drier than ever. So Ya, I guess it is pretty tough on the skin. When my skin gets too dry, I break out twice as bad. So be careful. I had b4 that, given up on all topicals cause they do this to me every time. I started Diane 35 2 days ago. So waiting for that to kick in.

Re: too harsh?

Besides the saliyic acid, and the BP, do you know of any acne fighting agents that are GENTLE to the skin. Doesn't have to be really strong. I just wanna give my diane a little bunp start (if that's possible)

Re: too harsh?

I use both salicylic acid (BHA) and BP without problems - perhaps you are using too strong a percentage of them. These products, especially the BP, don't have to be strong to be effective. You should start out with the lowest percentage available and then move up only if it is not effective.

Re: too harsh?

Isn't 2.5% BP the lowest dose? In neutrogena on the spot? Still dries me out like mad. And the salicylic acid stuff. I think I have done the 10% and the 0.10 % (if that is possible) I am not reading them right now. Just going by memory. I have oily skin, but extemely sensitive. i hate it.
