Hey guys, I recently bought the Walgreens Alpha Hydroxy Cream. I use it at night after cleansing for my acne marks and I'm just wondering if you apply moisturizer (I use Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream) after applying the AHA, will that negate the effects in any way? If it is perfectly fine to apply moisturizer, how long should I wait to apply it, or should I apply it before the AHA? Thanks.

Theoretically, applying another product over the AHA is a bad idea - it'll mess with the formulation and effectiveness of the product. Also, the AHA cream itself is a great moisturizer - more than likely the Cetaphil will be overkill at night. Imho, you should just stick to the AHA cream at first, and see how it works. If you do choose to add the moisturizer, wait at least 30 minutes in between.

In that case, should my evening regimen consist of cleansing, applying spot treatment, then applying AHA last? or should i apply the AHA after cleansing so it absorbs first, then apply spot treatment? Thanks.
