8% Aha And 70% Solution Mixture, Used Too Much?

5 posts in this topic

I went to walgreens and bought their brand of AHA with 8%. I read online that it cures red marks from post acne. This has been my major problem is that every time I get a pimple the red mark lasts for weeks to months and and this point it looks like I have terrible acne, when its just like 15+ red marks spotted over my face. Anyways, I was excited with the cream and I applied it from the morning to late night around 7pm. I put decent sized "dime" dabs over all the red marks and the fading ones. I applied the NEW dabs every 1-2 Hours for about 10 hours. I woke up now and all the spots and faded ones are EXTREMELY red, like they just had a pimple there or something terrible happened. IDK what to do now.

Q: Can some one explain to me what happened?

Q: What do I do now, stop the product, use it less, use new product?

Q: If I applied it too much, how do I apply it in the future.

PS: I'm currently on accutane with a mixture of dry skin.

AHA shouldn't be used during the day, it's just an exfoliant and can dry out the skin and irritate it more which sounds like it did to you. I don't think you should be using it while on accutane.

Why is AHA used during the night? Is it ment to be used as a "mask" on the face when slept or just dabs.
