redness and peeling is normal in the beginning and will go away when the skin hardens. However, U need 2 start slow - less bp (follow dan's instructions...) 8-[

at least I hope it is-- but it maytake awhile...I am on week 4 and I am still peeling (maybe it is my cleanser?) but the redness goes away after about 1-1 1/2 weeks. Though periodically you may get a red day here or there...just don't give up. I know it sucks but keep doing the regimen.

to get rid of the dead dried skin on ur face, get a aha moisturizer lotion

most ppl use the eucerin one but i use the neutrogena one since i cant find eucerin
