Hi, I just wanna ask if it's okay to use Dan's AHA without using BP?

I mean, my face is pretty much clear, like 75%. I've been using clindamycin and tretinoin for the past few months, prescribed by my dermatologist. My only problem right now is the red marks on both of my cheeks, it won't fade away. Then I've read that Dan's AHA can help me with this red marks...

I just wanna know if it's okay to use it without using BP first? Will it cause initial breakout, harm my skin, skin purging and stuff like that? My comedones are pretty much gone too, so i'm wondering if it will cause me to breakout... So, yeah, thanks.

You can use the AHA w/o using BP. That is totally up to you. For the breakout issue, some people experience it, some people don't. Just don't be surpised if you do because sometimes it does happen when introducing a new product in your regimen.


Morning Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion + Neutrogena Moisture with SPF 15 + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil
 
Evening Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: Cetaphil Moilturizing Cream + Acne.org AHA + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil
 
Extras:
- Concealer: MAC Studio Finish Concealer in C25 (for redness)
- Pressed Powder: MAC Select Sheer in NC20 (for mattefying)
- Foundation: Revlon Colorstay for Oily/Combination Skin in Buff (for even skin tone)
- Scrub: St. Ives Apricot Scrub Blemish and Blackhead Control (twice a week in the AM)
- Medication: Diane 35
                     Meftormin 500mg (for PCOS)
- Supplements: Vitamin D3 (1000UI/day) --- Started 5/16/2013
                         Zinc (50mg/day) --- Started 5/16/2013
 
And this is all done as gently as possible. smile.png
