  1. One more question! I’m doing tretinoin at night time. When I have an inflammatory acne, should I use benzoyl peroxide on it as a spot treatment, even though it will render the tretinoin ineffective? Don’t retinoids have some sort of anti-inflammatory effect, and would also help with acne visible on the skin?

  2. When treating an inflammatory acne, that’s visible on the skin, is the combination of salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide a good choice for a spot treatment, or would I be better off using just the benzoyl peroxide?

  3. Hey, John! I just wanted to let you know that I first found about you in October when you posted on Temptalia, and I love this new post of yours, too! Your posts are so unbelievably informative. As a science major who’s taken some pre-med classes, I give you major props for bringing this kind of information to the beauty blogging world. You’ve even helped me find some possible solutions for my own skin issues, as mild as they are. Your passion for this science really shows, and it’s really admirable!

    I also wanted to let you know that I’m linking out to your blog on my blog, and I hope you’re OK with that! Please let me know if you’d like me to take it down.

    • Hi there! Well that’s truly flattering! Thanks for taking the time to give me some feedback. What you’ve said completely made me smile.

      And of course you can link my blog on your blog. The more information the merrier, right? As probably the first, or one of the first, person to actually link my blog, thank you! 🙂 I look forward to reading and sharing your comments and knowledge as well.
