AM:

Cleanser (2x, massage lips gently to remove flakes)

Toner/Softener

Moisturizer (apply while skin is damp and gently to limit friction. Wait 15-20 min to absorb)

Eye Cream

Titanium Dioxide Sunblock (apply gently to limit friction and sparingly 2x to control the white cast)

Lip balm

PM:

Cleanser (2x, massage lips gently to remove flakes)

Toner/Softener

Eye Cream

Moisturizer (apply while skin is damp and gently to limit friction. Wait 15-20 min to absorb)

AHA (apply gently to limit friction)

Lip balm

I don't like a tight skin so I still apply a moisturizer at night as I wait to apply the AHA. I've noticed that the moisturizer also acts as a buffer to reduce some, if not all, of the acid's burning sensation. AHA effectiveness in sloughing off flakes and skin renewal remains the same.

You will notice that this is the clinique method of applying products to the face without the use of toners. Treatments are applied after moisturizer. I've experienced that this method was a more gentler but still effective way of caring for the skin.

If you choose not to use a moisturizer at night, wait for skin to completely dry before applying AHA. I've observed that technique helps reduce some, if not all, of the stinging sensation brought about by the AHA's interaction with damp skin.
