Glycolic Acid & Benzoyl Peroxide Skin Care Routine

Question: Would it be okay to use a 10% glycolic acid face wash, and then a benzoyl peroxide product to follow it (i.e., BenzaClin)? I am wanting the "anti-aging, anti-acne" effect.
Answer:

Applying both of these two products together would not necessarily give you the benefit that you are trying to acheive; it could be too drying for you.You can use a regimen such as this but you must be very cautious. You would need to keep your skin hydrated as well. You may also want to try every other night or every third night so that your skin has the chance to adjust. Lastly, it is very important that you wear sun protection during the day while using these ingredients.Even better, look at Obagi’s CLENZIderm System; using that will give you the anti-aging benefits of the line as well as helping with clearing your skin.It is possible to handle two types of skin concerns at once; you just have to make sure that you are keeping your skin hydrated and staying faithful to a nice skin care regimen.
