Post best glycolic, benzoyl, salycic


I've been seeing that people have been getting good results using benzoyl, glycolic, and salycic acids together in morning and night.

What is the best brand of each to buy and what %?

Yes indeed.

This NEW method beats out the OLD method of anti-biotics, retinoids, and other medications.

There is a book, ACNE CURE, all about this method.

My dermatologist is totally into this line of method using GLYCOLIC, SALYCILIC, and BENZOYL.


Here is the deal. Don't think MORE is BETTER. For example: 10% Benzoyl is bad. Rather, stick to 5%.

Here is my rundown:

*Wash with water, leave on for a couple minutes, rinse off.

SALYCILIC ACID 2% (nothing less, nothing more)
*Toner or astringent liquid works best. Squirt the liquid on a facial pad and use it like those popular 'Oxy' pads. NEUTROGENA has a great Salycilic line - comes in BLUE color liquid.

*Comes in cream/lotion form, along with liquid, like the SALYCILIC.

The Cream form sometimes comes with AHA, Moisture, and SPF 15. Very useful.

The LIQUID comes in combination with the SALYCILIC 2% - so you get 2 in 1 basically. These are in pads, like the OXY pads mentioned. Very usefull as well.

Finally, you can get a precription for BENZOYL PEROXIDE GEL (refridgerator) 5%. Consider this the 'cherry on top.' Only use this on huge infected areas.


That is what I use and see effective.

There are many products with this treatment.

NEUTROGENA seems to be my fav.
