Hi. I have just ordered me a tube of Skinoren(azelaic acid) and im a dude. I hope it does work though, it was only like 20-some dollars so what the hell!!! Ill give it a shot. I will tell you the info of once i start usin it.
I am male and used Skinoren for 3 months. It was awesome stuff. I stopped because it made my skin so oily, but it was still really good. I never got completly clear but before Skinorn my face was horrible, during and after it was 80% better. It really is good stuff for most people, but I hear its not good for dark skinned people.
Dear Tummy, I have oily skin, but its been dry recently due to the fact that I have been using benzomycin, I was wondering if i can still use benzomycin while using skinoren(not at the same time, one at night and other in morning) to control the oily skin i have? U said that it made your skin oily, so i wanna keep usin the benzomycin to maintain the oiliness of my face. Thanks
I suppose you could use Benzamycin if you wanted, but it would have to be first. Nothing goes through Skinoren once applied...thats why makeup goes on so well, it doenst really let it absorb in the skin. Skinoren is so good because it puts a layer on your skin that kills bacteria and prevents bacteria from the outside entering your pores. You'll notice this when you put it on in the morning and about 5pm you might touch your face somewhere and feel this greasy film that is Skinoren still on your face. If you taste your finger (I wouldnt recommend it, it will be very salty and that is not from your sweat...Skinoren is very salty tasting). It's really kinda hard to explain, you'd just have to try it. For you though, I think you should use Skinoren or Azelex during the day and Benzamycin at night. That shoudl be a good regime for you.
I heard someone posting about using Azelex and Retin A at the same time..I was wondering if I could do that with differin..they said use them together at night so I am trying to wonder if I can put Differin on ..then Azelex or mix them together?
