good for you! /i have the same thing happen, my face was WAY better before using acne creams. that is what really broke me out and messed up my complexion. now i am looking into more healing things liek the olay skin nutrition stuff and etc.... i will NEVER use benzoyl peroxide or retin A again!
Yep. While Benzoyl peroxide might not damage your skin too too much, using those cremes will often make you want to touch your zits to 'make sure they're okay'. Plus.. If you put on the creme, you are also spreading the bacteria from your hands onto your face.
Not worth if, if you ask me. Make peace with your skin, unless your skin is mutated and can actually handle the harsh cremes. (My skin couldn't even take salicylic acid 2.0%)
BP is important in controling acne as long as it's used in moderation. 10% is way to harsh and can aggravate acne. People with mild/moderate acne will probably benefit more from using a 2.5-5% BP cream. If it's to dry then make sure you moisturize.
