Just Purchased Aha+ Should I Use It?

4 posts in this topic

Hello, I'm Kenneth and I'm new to acne.org. I went on Accutane for 6 months and ever since then my skin has been clear. It's been 2 years since then, I get occasional pimples here and there but they die almost instantly. However I still have scars and I'm starting to get these tiny red spots in my pores (I'm guessing maybe I need to exfoliate or something). Should I use AHA+? I used to use Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser but after washing my face every night with it, I started to get more breakouts so I've been using the Caveman method and my skin has become a lot clearer, but these little red dots in my pores and my scars bug the living hell out of me.

WHAT SHOULD I DOOO? lol.

I've been on the regimine for about a little over a month. I got the AHA with the acne.org kit and I started using it right away but it irritated my skin. I looked on the Regimine site to see what it said about AHA irritation. The directions said to use the cleanser, treatment cream and moisterizer for a couple weeks first before starting the AHA. I started using a tiny bit of the AHA and have now worked my way up to about 1 tsp mixed in with my moisterizer and the jojoba oil. I have noticed a HUGE difference in my skin! I finally don't have any cystic acne or white hard plugs sticking out of my skin and the itchy acne I had along my jaw line is gone along with the baby acne I had on my forehead. My skin is the clearest, smoothest and prettiest it has ever been and I'm 41 years old. I've been through hell with my skin so I'm getting ready to post my story/background for others to read.
