    You can search on proactiv.com:

    >>>My acne is gone; do I have to keep using Proactiv® twice a day every day?

    If your acne has been gone for several months, you may try reducing your use of Proactiv to once a day. But do not stop using it all together. Remember acne is not curable. Your skin is clear and doing great because the medicines in Proactiv have been working. Since it takes weeks for pimples to form, you may not know immediately if using Proactiv less often is enough to keep your complexion blemish free. Within a few weeks to months, if your acne returns, resume using Proactiv twice daily for maximum suppression. For as long as acne is a part of your life, with consistent use of Proactiv, no one needs to ever know you have acne!

    >>>I just know I won’t have time to use Proactiv® twice a day; will it still help me?

    Yes, Proactiv will still help even if you use the System once a day. Whenever you can add that second application, do it, as it will only help Proactiv to work better for you.

    >>>I have sensitive skin, is it okay for me to use Proactiv®?

    Yes, Proactiv is safe for sensitive skin. It was specifically formulated with 2.5% benzoyl peroxide (BPO) to avoid the irritation that can occur with higher concentrations, while providing the same acne-fighting efficacy. It also includes luxury skin-care ingredients that condition the skin and help to support the skin’s barrier. However, everyone’s skin is unique in its ability to tolerate particular topical medications. Therefore, we recommend beginning with a “spot test” when starting Proactiv or any new product. To test if you are sensitive to the product, apply a small amount-a thin layer about the size of a dime–twice daily to the same area on the side of your neck behind the ear. If there is no redness or irritation after three days of multiple applications to the same spot, you can begin usage on a larger area.

    Start slowly when using medicated products. We suggest you use the products only at night in the first week. This will allow you to build tolerance to the BPO that powers these important steps in our Combination Therapy®. Or, to really ease in, use the entire System only once every other day for the first one or two weeks. You can increase application to twice a day when you find your skin tolerates the medication well. Also, it will really help to use the Proactiv Green Tea Moisturizer, or your favorite non-acnegenic oil-free moisturizer once or twice daily after the Repairing Treatment or whenever your skin feels dry.

    If your skin cannot tolerate the 3-Step System even after you ease into use, or if you are allergic to benzoyl peroxide, please call our Skin Care Advisors at 1-800-876-9717 to substitute the product for our Proactiv Gentle Formula.

    I wish you luck!! =)

    Especially since you have sensitive skin I don’t recommend using it, I know a few people who have tried it and said it aggravates the skin instead!
