    You might also see a doctor. This is sometimes a bacterial infection – and a prescription cream will clear it up.

    OK, I have nothing helpful to say, but could someone please tell me why you can’t use a moisturizer “for oily skin” after benzoyl peroxide? ‘Cause I do that.

    Holy Moses my question got answered!
    I’m working on the smoking thing because whilst I love it, it’s actually totally gross and not really worth it at all.
    Thanks for the tip about not scrubbing, so logical I probably should have thought of it myself.

    I’ve had good luck recently with using Neosporin on the deeper, painful acne. It could be that the pain relief ingredient does more by helping to keep my picking fingers away, but the recent spots I’ve had have healed much more quickly than if I had used a benzoyl peroxide product.
    Of course, if you are allergic to any of the ingredients then it would be a bad idea.

    You know, I started having some acne problems again (I’m sure a natural part of the aging/evolution process). I began using Philosophy’s On A Clear Day Foaming Cleanser and BOTH Clinique Dramatically Different Lotion AND Clinique Youth Surge. I thought I had oily skin before, but I’m conviced now that I was just overproducing oil because my skin was actually DRY. I use both the lotion and the cream because just one leaves my face feeling tight, which…HATE.
    The salicylic acid in the cleanser (used religiously twice a day…also a new habit) combined with moisturizing like crazy has left me with smooth, evenly-toned skin and only an occasional, hormonal pimple. SO HAPPY.
