I Used Acne Cream Around My Eyes And Now There's Stinging When I Squint
Avoidance: When applying acne cream, avoid applying near/around the eyes, and applying sparingly. Most acne creams only require a pea-sized amount of product for a face application, which is applied by dabbing (on cheeks, chin, forehead, & nose) then rubbing in. If your symptoms occur or worsen despite proper application, stop using the product & see your physician as you may be having an allergic reaction. ...Read more

No: Elomet is a steroid cream and can help with allergic reactions or dry skin or other areas that are inflamed (like bug bites). Steroids can. Sometimes, make infections (viral or bacterial) worse.

I just started using an exfoliating cream that contains AHA and BHA for my acne for a week now, is it okay to wax my facial hair as I usually do?
Yes: In general hydroxy acids do not cause an issue with facial wax. The wax is not a chemical that could interact with the AHA/BHAs. This is one reason why an aesthetician will ask if you use these products before a facial - so no interactions occur. However, your skin may be more sensitive now that you have been exfoliating it and so it may be more uncomfortable or cause redness/ rash. Aloe can help. ...Read more
