In Topic: Makeup Over Top Of Aha+?

Well how soon after application were you thinking? once it dries it shouldn't really factor into application, if anything may make it smoother/easier. Could give it a try one day and see what happens.

Only way to tell is to try not using anything for a few months, see how you end up.
By the way, what are peroxide treaments? sounds scary!


In Topic: Anyone Using Aha+ Only?

26 January 2015 - 06:54 PM

I've begun using [a very small amount] of AHA mixed w/moisturizer twice daily for about 2 weeks maybe as part of the regimen and I haven't noticed any new breakouts or redness, I think it is helping keep things calmer, even though I still breakout around my mouth.. a lot. I am pretty sensitive & light complected so if I use too much I do suffer from major redness, if that helps.

also, some days I skip mornings and only do it once.


In Topic: Pre-Mixing Aha+ With Moisturizer

I use a really small amount of AHA, if I use even a bit too much I get red/burning. It's maybe 1/8th aha & moisturizer, I may gradually increase it, but that's just my experience.

Also I use the cerave 30 spf daily moisturizer when going outside and I have had no problems with it :)

What kind of skin routines have you tried, besides accutane?

Things get better for you, it has to. There's always something out there to help someone even if it doesn't seem like it, to at least reduce the amount of breakouts. It may take time to figure it out and adjust but there's always hope, I know how frustrating & depressing it can be. We all do.
