Im thinking of buying an oxy wash, and I heard it had 10% benzoyl peroxide. I am NOT allergic to benzoyl peroxide (I have used it many times before), I just want to know what type of lotion/cream/moisturizer would be the best to use afterwards. It doesn't have to have benzoyl peroxide or salicyc acid. btw I have combination skin.Lotion/cream/moisturizer to use after benzoyl peroxide?
If you have oily skin, you don't have to use anything. Moisturizers are highly advertised and much-touted, but they're no cure-all. If you have combination skin, ie. oily t-zone, normal to dry everywhere else, it'd be a good idea to use a light moisturizer everywhere but your t-zone.
Don't bother buying a cleanser with benzoyl peroxide in it. Cleansers get washed down the drain, so the benzoyl peroxide won't have time to work its magic.

Lotion/cream/moisturizer to use after benzoyl peroxide?
you should look into jan marini skin care.
my mom is in the skin care business (facials, waxing, etc.)
and i use jan marini benzoyl peroxide wash and use this stuff called Bioclear (this is a cream/lotion) afterwards everynight.
you can use that bioclear after using any kind of face wash. i have combination skin too and i have been using these products for a while now and i rarely break out.
when i do its a couple pimples here or there.
