CAN THIS BE USED IN THE AM & PM?
Yes, Acne Gel can be used in both am and pm. I recommend starting using it in your PM routine. After you have bumped up your other serums, you can use the Acne Gel in the AM to progress your clearing process.
CAN I USE ACNE GEL LONG-TERM?
Once you are free from acne, you do not need to use Benzoyl Peroxide. This is one of the first products I pull clients off of once they have been free of breakouts for three months.
CAN I USE ACNE GEL ON MY BODY?
Yes, you certainly can use it for body acne.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I USE THIS?
If you have never used Benzoyl Peroxide Before we recommend following our acclimation guide below. If you have been using BP you can start using it every night.
Benzoyl Peroxide (Acne Gel) Acclimation Guide.
If you have never used benzoyl peroxide, you may want to follow this accumulation routine for the first two weeks. You'll apply Acne Gel every evening for a prescribed amount of time, then wash it off and apply moisturizer after you wash your face with Pro B5 Wash, pump 1-2 pumps of Acne Gel into your palms and apply it all over your face avoiding the neck and eye areas. Leave it on for the prescribed amount of time, then wash it off using Pro B5 Wash, and apply HylaVera or NourishRX.
Days 1 – 3 Apply Acne Gel for 15 minutes only – then cleanse and moisturize.
