My skin is red from benzoyl peroxide I have stopped its use can I apply baby powder to my face, I am applying Vaseline twice a day on the red scars?

My skin is red from benzoyl peroxide I have stopped its use can I apply baby powder to my face, I am applying Vaseline twice a day on the red scars?

No: Use an oil-free moisturizer, something that won't clog up your pores more. Using Vaseline or baby powder is not recommended. Use a good sunscreen, at least 15 SPF. I usually recommend a facial moisturizer that contains a sunscreen so it won't feel greasy. You may want to try a lower strength benzoyl peroxide for your acne or ask your doctor for a different medication. ...Read more
