Skin Care Review: BenzaClin clindamycin-benzoyl peroxide gel
Clears up acne, pimples, whiteheads etc.
My dermatologists prescribed BenzaClin for my pre-menapausal acne. I am 47 years old and while occasionally when premenstral, I would experience minor skin break outs, recently I have been experiencing pimples on my face, chest, and shoulders that seem to linger for months. It was as if I wasn't 'healing'. My skin would get 'pimples' that never seemed to go away. Of course, I'm sure that my sqeezing them wasn't helping, but it was too embarrassing at my age to be seen with red bumps obviously filled w/nasty stuff. I preferred just to have red irritated bumps. I finally made an appointment with my dermatologist and she concluded that changes in hormones was the most likely cause of this acne and prescribed BenzaClin and Retin-A to use together. Before bed, I wash my face, gently dry it, and apply the Retin-A. In the morning, I again wash my face and apply the BenzaClin to the affected areas. I noticed my skin clearing up within 48 hours, but also getting very dry. I have begun to use a buff puff in the shower to scrubb away dead/flaky skin, and allow the medication to soak into my skin before applying a moisturizer. I have noticed that my skin sometimes stings after using the Retin-A and moisterizer, but like my grandmother used to say, "You have to suffer to be beautiful."
My results are extremely satisfying and worth the dry, sometimes stinging sensation.
