I have acne on dry skin. I have been using isotrex gel since week and my skin is now very red, dry and peeling. I want to know how long this peeling and dryness will remain as I have my sister wedding after 20 days. Plus which moisturizer is best with istorex gel?

I think you will be fine...you can try applying raw honey to see if this will help speed up healing and moisturize it. Just apply and let sit for 5-10 min each night, rinse with warm water. Good Luck!

thanks, well I have started egg white, honey and lemon mask. This mask is showing great result and I am planning to apply it daily.

Thanks but one issue is that raw/organic honey is not available and I am using honey bought from store. Will this pasteurized honey cause breakout as I got two new pimples today.

In my opinion the pasteurized honey would not cause a break out- that wouldn't be the issue, when they pasteurize the honey they simply heat it - the negative impact to that is it kills some of the nutrients that make honey so magical. Have you used honey before? One thing to be mindful of is where the honey comes from, which country, you could have an allergic reaction, as remember honey is collected from the flowers of that country so you must be cautious if you have any allergies. Most health food stores will carry local honey - have you checked there?
