say hello to AHA ... good bye flakiness & red marks!

Alright so my biggest complaint/struggle with 'the regimen' was the flakiness of my skin from the BP. Like I said, I was a ProActive user for over 5 years before I started the regimen so I thought I could use a lot of the BP since my skin was already used to proactive's BP....well I was wrong :D ! Redness, roughness, flakiness -- I was miserable at the end of my 2nd week.

I backed down on the amount of BP & ordered Dan's AHA treatment. I know it says not to start the AHA until after 4 weeks. But I did anyways at 3 weeks & boy am I glad I did--no more flakiness or peeling layers of skin. My skin feels CLEAN & SMOOTH & I am actually able to stick to the regimen's rules (no rubbing etc.). It seems like its just revealing the smooth clear skin underneath--totally different way of exfoliating than what I was used to. I'm now able to ramp up the BP again to the recommended amount. So I use the AHA 2 maybe 3 times per week as my night time moisturizer, but only a thin layer of it. AHA is also helping my red marks from previous acne--amazing! The red spots are slowly getting less and less red and noticeable. I also use it on my back/neck/chest to keep things smooth & acne free. I wouldn't be without my AHA!!! :)

Question: does anyone use AHA more frequently like daily or every other day?? Just wondering if it irritates too much or makes things even better...
