Hi, I hope to get good advices from you guys. I am having the worst skin condition in my life. After 1 month on accutane, my face is now covered with acnes. They are mostly filled with pus,or looked swollen. It all started with many small bumps. After some time, when the acnes are gone, they left many dark spots or blemishes. I've read that glycolic acid or AHA could help to remove blemishes. I have just bought the neostrata gel plus which contains AHA. But I am not sure how to use it. Thanks guys.


By the way, I am a 28 years old male.

i've just started using avene cleanance k which containts aha + bha, both of which are supposed to help with red marks.

i have used it after cleansing & when my skin is completely dry. i used it all over my face rather than just spot treating.

even after 2 days, i think i can see a difference...although this may be wishful thinking!

Is there a way to apply that? For instance, BP before AHA, and moisturizer after. Do you leave the AHA on or let it stay for a few minutes and wash it off?

i'm unsure about bp + moisturiser in regards to aha (as i don't use either) but you need to leave the aha on as it is an exfoliator so needs to stay on the skin.

hopefully another member will be able to answer your queries about the bp + moisturiser though.

Hi! I just come across this post looking for the same answers, I am using Benzoyl Peroxide on my skin as well and I have brought this product today but I actually have no idea how to use it! Could somebody who uses this (Cleanance K) as well as BP please give me some advice?!
