Benzoyl peroxide ok for lightening fair skin?
on 7 Mar 2007
Benzoyl peroxide is usually mild enough not to cause any lasting damage. There is a strong possibilty that you have reacted to it as it sometimes causes skin conditions such as dematitis. This is easily reversed by using topical steroids. The most important thing is for you to discontinue use immediately. I think most of us look terrible under a lot of light so dont panic too much ;0) Open pores are sadly irreversible and so the only thing that will make them appear so obvious is to have regular facials and keep your skin free of too many products as often this only highlights the problem.
Until your skin clears up the most important thing for you to do is to use as little product as possible on your face. This means only a light emulsion to remove your make-up, possibly no moisturiser (or only a light one). THe skin is remarkable when it comes to healing itself. Most of the time we dont give it a chance to do that...
