Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Treatment Timetable
People who have tried benzoyl peroxide know that it packs a powerful punch against acne AND against your skin too. But, most often, side effects are mild and temporary.
Using this timed treatment schedule will make life much easier for you, because you can let your skin get used to the drying and sometimes irritating effects of your benzoyl peroxide medication.
Remember, mild peeling is a good thing -- you should expect that to happen, especially in the beginning. Keep in mind, itʼs a temporary side effect that will diminish with time.
Be sure to review the Benzoyl Peroxide Userʼs Guide before starting this routine. It is very important that you follow directions closely.
Hint: Itʼs easiest to start this type of acne treatment in the afternoon/evening.

Beginning Benzoyl Peroxide Schedule
1. Using an appropriate cleanser, wash your skin gently with your fingertips and warm
water, avoiding the eye area. Rinse thoroughly & pat dry with a towel. *Women -- do not use cleanser to take off your makeup -- use a non-comedogenic eye makeup remover.
2. Ice for two minutes. Put ice cubes in a plastic baggie & rotate gently over any areas
that tend to break out. Ice reduces inflammation and allows for better penetration of your benzoyl peroxide acne treatment.
3. Apply a thin layer of benzoyl peroxide gel to any areas that tend to break out or have
acne (including whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, pustules, cysts, etc.).
Follow the treatment timetable closely.
When your time is up, move on to the next steps.

important step that will keep your skin from getting too dry as youʼre getting adapted to benzoyl peroxide and/or other acne treatments. Only use a cream if you ARE NOT wearing benzoyl peroxide over night. Once you begin wearing BPO overnight, you will stop using your moisture cream.
