Well, I'm going to try to add AHA back into my regimen, but I'm gonna have to be sneaky about it. As a first step, I just applied it all over my face, let it sit for about ten to fifteen minutes, then washed it off. My skin got a little pink while it was on, but quickly changed back to its normal color after I washed.
I'll see how my skin is over the next few days, and if I don't notice any negative reactions, I'll do the same next Wednesday. Maybe I'll just stick with doing these mini-applications twice a week for a while if my skin can handle them.
[EDIT @ 9:54pm] Awesome. I fucked up my face. The skin on either side of my mouth, from my nose to my chin, is bright red.
And I have to go visit my family tomorrow. Fucking great.
