What is the best way to avoid irritation when using benzoyl peroxide acne treatment?

Whenever i use benzoyl peroxide i get a little itchy. No, I’m not allergic either. Just wanted to know. Also, if you have any recommendations for DRUGSTORE acne treatments, let me know. Thanks!

Benzoyl peroxide is quite effective at treating acne; however, the key is the concentration. If you are getting itchy, dry or irritated, try to find a BP product that has a lower concentration – preferably 2.5% and work your way up (if needed). Most people start with the 10% concentration but it’s usually only needed for people that have very oily skin. Try the lower % and start once per day and work your way up to twice per day. If you feel your skin needs the higher %, then go to the 5% again working your way up from once per day to 2 times. Also, make sure that you aren’t using multiple acne products that contain BP. You don’t want to overdo it as that can make you itchy…and could cause your skin to produce more oil which will cause more acne.

Regarding the drugstore acne treatments…since everyone responds differently with different products, find a cleanser your skin likes and if needed moisturize (my skin is too oily to moisturize). Also, exfoliate regularly (3-5 days a week if skin is oily; dry or sensitive skin once per week; normal skin is OK everyday). If you use something your skin likes and are consistent with your skin care, there is no need to spend a lot of $ on skin care. No need to overdo it in any area of your skin care regimen.

Hope that helps…good luck to you!!!

How effective are the salicylic peels or other acne treatments at Sk:n?

I have recently been for a consultation for acne treatments at Sk:n. A salicylic peel seemed effective however I want to here from people who have actually been to Sk:n to know their thoughts as it is a lot of money for something that isn’t long term. Do you know of any other clinics which would provide a better service? Thanks :)
