Your skin looks really good, so whatever routine you have now- stick with it!

The thing that made the biggest difference for my skin was a pump bottle of benzoyl peroxide wash (I use it a couple of times a week in the shower). The type of body acne you typically get determines whether a benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid wash will be most beneficial. BP is good for red/inflamed pimples* (it fights against bacteria) and salicylic acid exfoliates to fight blackheads/whiteheads. I like Humane’s BP wash over PanOxyl’s, and I get it from Amazon. It lasted about 8-9 months. They also make a SA toner!

*BP doesn’t do anything for red, inflamed cysts. It’s topical and can only penetrate so far. If you get a visible cyst close to your wedding, try scheduling an appointment with a dermatologist. They can give you a quick shot of cortisone to shrink it, takes about 15 minutes.

I am using this from Amazon and I have seen good results just in the first week alone. It is 10% and I let it sit on my face for 3-5 minutes then wash off.

I used this benzoyl peroxide body wash from Amazon. Here is the link https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00PO7GKLM/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

The thing with this wash is I went through a purge phase where my acne actually got worse before it started improving. It also took about 6 weeks for me to see real results so you have to stick with it.

I follow up with Josie Maran 100% Argon Oil. I know it sounds backwards to apply oil to acne, but this argon oil is actually god for acne prone skin and is very hydrating. This will help the discomfort that may come with the body wash also.

This combination has made a drastic improvement on my skin and I have suffered with acne for several years. The only other step I can think of is Accutane, but I really would save that for a last resort.

yeah cuts always hurt my friend, but please, I beg you to never go as far as I did. I really really hope you never want to cut again 🙁

here’s the link, worked wonders for me and its lasted me a decent amount of time. I put it on once every night about 5-10 minutes before my shower so I can rinse easily. Don’t use too much, just enough for it so sink into your skin, that stuff is strong so you don’t want to see white on your skin, like you would with sunscreen

Hi there!

I just wanted to let you know that Automod has removed your comment because it contains an Amazon referral link, which we don’t allow in the sub.

Could you please edit the URL so that everything from (and including) “tag=” is removed? That way, the product page will still be visible – but no one can make a profit from the link.

Alternatively, copy this link:


If you’ve done that, please reply to this message so I can approve your comment. Thank you!

Hmm. I used Stridex pads for a couple months a year ago and don’t recall substantially improved results, but I also may not have been as good about a full routine / as consistent back then. Is it common for people to switch from washes to “leave on” lotions / pads and see results?

As far as Benzoyl Peroxide goes, I didn’t see any recommended sources in the sidebar under chemical exfoliants, so I bought this:

I used acne.org BP gel for a long time and it worked really well for me, it’s a 2.5% gel product to be used after cleansing and before moisturizing.


I also use a 10% BP cleanser for my back from amazon from a brand called humane. I really like it and have used it on my face a couple times and didn’t feel it to be too harsh or drying

Hi All!


I’m trying to mail down a strict routine, one where I regularly use different types of acids (mostly to finish off a few products that I’ve had for a while). The main problem I have is, can I layer multiple products on nights that I use something like my prescription tretinoin, Sunday Riley Good Genes, Benzoyl Peroxide washes (I have two: https://smile.amazon.com/Benzoyl-Peroxide-Acne-Treatment-Wash/dp/B00PO7GKLM?sa-no-redirect=1, https://www.neutrogena.com/skin/skin-acne/clear-pore-cleansermask/6810019.html), Pixi Glow Tonic? I know I shouldn’t layer any of these acids, when I mean layer, I mean can I utilize other products under them? And How often should I be rotating these items during my routine?


The details

I’m 28 years old, I have dry/combo dehydrated skin. I went though a couple of rough skin years because of my IUD, which has since been removed. My derm gave me tretinoin (0.025%), Spironolactone daily pill, and clindamycin phosphate pads. Since I started taking Spironolactone, my skin has become dry when I used to be oily, it’s now starting to become a bit combo has my t-zone will get a tad oily these days. It’s been about a year and a half now since my cystic acne from the IUD has gone away, but I’m trying to clean up the mess of scars it’s left behind.


My Current Routine


Hado Labo Gentle Facial Cleanser

Clindamycin Pads (very rarely do I use these, but when I get some break outs I’ll use them for a few days)

Pyunkang Yul Essense Toner

Pixi Morning Vitamin Mist (trying to just use this up as I don’t see much from it)

TO Marine Hyaluronics (not sure if this is doing enough for my dry skin, I may not repurchase when I finish it)

TO Niacinamide 10%/ Zinc 1%


CosRx Oil Free Ultra Moisturizing Lotion / CeraVe PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion

An SPF of 30 or higher (I’m rotating about three right now to finish up some)

And then I follow up with makeup usually.



Clean it zero balm (the new yellow one)

Hado Labo Gentle Facial Cleanser

Then here is where I’m unsure.

I have quite a few other products that I’d like to use as well (TO Marula Oil, Laneige Sleeping mask, Pond’s Dry skin cream, and a couple other samples of oils and such).


My current idea was to use the tretinoin, after I wash (obviously after my skin is completely dry) on the first night, then next night layer the Marula Oil and Pond’s cream, then the next night use Good Genes after washing, and then the next night tretinoin again, and then the next night Marula and Pond’s cream again, and then prob the Good Genes again (and one night with nothing as I know either Friday or Saturday night I will just wash my face and fall asleep after going out).

As for the Pixi Glow Tonic, I was thinking about peppering that in during my morning routine a few times a week after I wash.

As for the benzoyl peroxide washes, I usually use one of those on Saturdays, and maybe one other day of the week.


Any suggestions on best way to use these products, specifically the acids and tretinoin would be greatly appreciated. I’m afraid to layer and potentially cancel out their intended effects. I will likely always keep the prescription tretinoin unless I find an alternative that gives me similar results. And I’m not sure if I like Good Genes or not, so I’m not sure if I’d repurchase. And any comments or suggestions on my daily routine is welcomed.

I’ve struggled with bacne for my entire adult life and only now (maybe 2 months) see consistent results.

I use the following:


Then I follow with this but I didn’t add it until after a week of just using the above was and my old moisturizer:


Best of luck!
