Use SPF in morning and night version at night.

Both have high amounts of glycolic acid so it will sting.

A typical regimen is;

Night

Wash with Neutrogena Acne Oil Free Acne Wash Daily Scrub

Neutrogena On-the-Spot Acne Treatment, Vanishing Formula can be optionally applied to problem areas only at night so that the redness is gone by morning

Then apply Neutrogena Healthy Skin Face Lotion Night With Alpha Hydroxy

Morning:

If u r a man shave every day for better exfoliation and absorption, if wet shaving use plenty of lather and max of 2 blades

The SPF 15 version has 8% glycolic acid, as well as SPF 15 (obviously). The sensitive skin version has 4% glycolic acid. So depending on if your skin is sensitive or not, you should decide accordingly. 8% glycolic is quite strong, so if you do decide to go with that one, remember to use it sparingly and perhaps only once a day at first.

Just a warning--

I used to use Neutrogena's spf 15 lotion and it made my face worse-- made it really red after using it for a couple weeks. And the redness persisted for almost a month after I stopped using it!

I strongly suggest you start out using it like every other day or maybe even once every three days. Or, try using Lac hydrin 5, a milder AHA moisturizer.

I recently started using lac hydrin 5. I use cetaphil for two nights and then I use lac hydrin every third night-- my skin looks freakin amazing. I tried using lac hydrin every other night, and my face was red. I then went back to once every three nights and its back to looking amazing-- haven't seen my skin glow like this in quite some time. You only need to lace your skin with AHA every couple days to help with the exfoliation-- if you do it too much, you'll "overexfoliate" and hurt your skin.

Good luck.
