I've just been reading how acv is not supposed to be used while on the regimen and i was just curious as to why? Isn't it supposed to face red marks with AHA or something? If we're allowed to use AHA moisturizer, why not acv? Is it because it's before the BP?

I'm not a current user of acv, I just wanted to know.

You can use ACV or other toners (though not salicylic acid toners) on the regimen, but it's not considered part of the regimen. Some people like it and some people don't. I found that the few times I tried to use a toner, no matter how long I waited for it to dry, I had a lot of problems getting the BP to absorb. I personally think that ACV is an extraneous step and that my skin wouldn't benefit from using it, but once you have become used to BP and happy with all your products, you can try adding it in. Don't add it in early on, though, because if it does cause problems, you won't be able to figure out if it's the toner, the type of BP, the moisturizer, the wash, etc. and the first thing Dan, Brandy, Dami4n, etc. will tell you is to get rid of the toner and get back to basics. AHAs similarly should not be added until you have at least become used to applying the full amount of BP, though they don't interfere with BP absorption or anything like that and can be really helpful to people having problems with dryness, which is why they are usually appropriate to add in before you are completely clear.

I use acv and have been really happy with it. But I had been doing the csr for 9 months and was 99.9% clear when I added it. It has not caused me any problems with the bp absorbing, but that's me.
