Re: Benzoyl peroxide 10% 1st time using wow.....

I personally wouldn't wash your face more than twice a day, otherwise you'll dry up and possibly be prone to more acne.

Re: Benzoyl peroxide 10% 1st time using wow.....

My advice would be to apply it at night time for the first week then apply it of a morning after the second week.
I also find that exfoliating my skin once a week does help to prevent a build up of dry skin which can lead to further breakouts,try and treat your skin gently while using b.p as you don't want to irritate it any further.
B.P is the only otc product that get's my face under control and i alway's return to it after trying other product's.
Also if you get any dry bit's of skin moisturize them after applying the b.p.

Goodluck

Moisturize you skin good so you don't get to dry because that will lead tomore breakouts.

Re: Benzoyl peroxide 10% 1st time using wow.....

From my experience 10% BP is really harsh on the skin. 2.5% is supposedly just as affective and less drying. I've had success with 2.5% without too much irritation. I still use 10% though directly on the monster zits. = ) The only moisturizer I really like so far is Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion. (The Yellow Stuff in the jar) It's not really that expensive and lasts forever. I used to always get it free with a package my mom orders every year with all these different products. This year it didn't come with any and I bought some. I forget how much it was (around $12 I think) heh... well yeah it's good stuff.
