I'm new to the forum. I have been on the basic regimen (Dan's products) for about 6 weeks now, cleanser, BP and moisturiser. It has worked wonders for me in that time as I have always had mild/moderate acne but at 24 having a few big red spots on each cheek and my forehead is just embarassing. The spots have now more or less gone apart from the odd one that pops but but it is usually small and goes in a couple of days so I am very happy with the results. Especially since I've always thought I had quite oily skin and I play a lot of sports so I'm sweating quite a bit most days of the week.
I do still suffer from blocked pores though and blackheads. After realising the cleanser and BP weren't really unclogging my pores I had a look at Dan's AHA and ordered some which arrived yesterday. Last night I tried it for the first time and I think I may have used a bit too much. Basically my face looks sunburnt today!!!! I did some reading on here and mixed 1/2 moisturuser (1 pump) and 1/2 AHA (similar amount to 1 pump). Was this too much? It did sting but not badly and it calmed down after 15 mins. I'm going to wait a few days before using it again but how much do you use with the moisturiser?
Anything I can do to help the redness? It is worse than the redness I sometimes get from BP...so much so I didn't go to work today cause I look very odd with a sunburnt face in the middle of the coldest UK spring (its still freezing here...no sun).
Edit: Just to add, I used to apply to moisturiser on quite thick as my skin has been getting really dry with the BP and the extreme cold weather, so I'd give it a good thick layer and let it all soak in. Could it be that the AHA layer was too thick? It seems to be more red around the areas where I applied a thick layer of the moisturiser/AHA.
