Correct order of topicals...

Recommended Posts

I've finally gotten myself some alpha hydrox enhanced lotion to help with the red marks. I'm a little confused and just double checking here. The correct order would be cleanser...AHA...BP...Moisturize? Does the AHA simply just exfoliate and not moisturize at all? Thanks

It can be used however you need it really.

If your main concern is resolving old hyperpigmentation spots, you can use it on those. If you want to get a pimple to go away quicker, you can spot treat with the AHA lotion to help it go away faster. If you are overall flaky and having a difficult time keeping the flakes away, you can use a thin layer of it to help with that too.
