My face acts up on occasion too. I also use 2.5% BP only on spots though and I'm also using Retin A Micro on my forehead. I notice when it's a hot or humid day my face gets flushed and it looks as if my pores are all wide open.

I find that the temperature does this to my skin and also I tend to flare up most around the time of my period. Maybe that's the case w/ yours.

Have you considered alternatives to BP?

i read in an article in cosmopolitin that says
u should avoid white bread spices sweets and instead replice it with brown bread and water

the white bread potato and those stuff expands your blood vessels on your face and makes your insulin level fly
thats why face gets red
