red flares up

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I have been on Clindoxyl Gel for about a year now and I do not suffer from any redness after applying it.

However I started using a moisturizer (about a week now) called Neostrata 15 SPF (8% glycolic acid) because it was winter and my face would dry up.

So, I would apply my clindoxyl gel then apply some moisturizer but after awhile my face would turn redish.

I was wondering if it this things happen only temporary because I am new to this regime or it is recommended that I find another moisturizer. If so, any recommendations?

It's quite possible that the glycolic acid is irritating your face. I would suggest using a different moisturizer as glycolic acid peels the outer layer of skin off which could leave your skin red.
