I've been using differn at night for about 4 years now...don't know what i think about it, as i've had flares all the while then good times...however, i also put on Benzoil peroxide everynight on top of the differen...just read on Paul's website that the combination of the 2 deactivates each other...is this true? have i been my own worse enemy?
that is true. never use a BP over differin, retin-a, etc. i use retin-a in the morning now and BP at night since it takes BP longer to soak into the skin. Just use one in the morning and the other at night and you will benefit! i didn't like differin, didn't do anything for me, so my derm switched me to retin-a micro and i love it. also, think about adding a BHA into your regimen. i broke out at first, but now my skin is starting to look and feel wonderful. good luck!
