Can I Use Aha If I Dont Use Bp

6 posts in this topic

Of course you can, the two products aren't correlated.

I undertook a bit of an experiment about 5 months ago whereby I stopped using BP and solely used AHA+ on my face to see if I remained clear. It was a disaster...I broke out like crazy and it took another 7 weeks after commencing BP to become clear again. Now I stick to using both products together, but if you are mainly clear without using BP, then I would say AHA will work well for you. But its all personal, so you will just have to experiment and see what happens.

Let us know how you get on and good luck! :)

After remaining clear for around 1.5 years following DKR (The Regimen), in March 2013 I decided to change to Epiduo. I use a pea size amount of epiduo each night, followed by a layer of topical antibiotic (Eryacne). I also apply Eryacne every morning and moisturise twice a day. After switching to Epiduo from the regimen I found that it took a good 3 months to get back to being perfectly clear again and now I might get one small pimple appear per month. I can live with that

I started following Dan's Regimen in September 2011 after suffering with acne for 20 years or so. I followed the Regimen instructions exactly and became 100% clear within 9-11 weeks. In December 2011 and after being consistently clear for over a month, I started to slowly reduce the amount of BP I used until I was only applying BP at night. My skin still remained clear however I sometimes switched to applying BP twice a day for a few days (perhaps once a month) if I felt a few under skin bumps starting to come up. I used acne.org products (including AHA and jojoba oil) and sometimes cetaphil moisturiser at night if I felt my skin was especially dry. In the gallery I show my week by week progress following the regimen.

Argh I didn't mean to scare you. I only broke out because of my experiment to stop using a combination of Bp and aha and just use aha. Didn't work at all for me, but if you're already clear for the main part without using bp then I think you'll have a lot of success with aha.

hi!

my derma always asked me to do spot treatment with any acne med like bp(3%) or clindamycin phsphate etc.

i use salicylic face wash(1%) twice daily.

but considering ur theory,no i dnt break out on the non-acne areas(am sorry ,i dnt know what to call it) for aha face wash.

what makes u think so?
