No, don't use it. Iwould wait 6+ months for a chemical peel after isotretinoin.

it depends on your skin, normally your skin will become very sensitive and can't handle AHA anymore, that's when you know u should stop using it...you can still using it for the first month when you on accutane....it also depends on what kind of AHA product you are using, I wouldn't recommend chemical peel, but if just AHA face cream, cleanser, toner, I think you can wait 2 months...

just my own personal opinions...You will know when is the right time when the accutane starts to kick in...haha..

first thing first. don't believe what a product tells you.

now AHA is not a moisturizer, its an exfoliator, accutane its also an exfoliator.

im not sure what does HSFL means but i used one claiming it was moisturiser for the morning with aha etc, anyway it was very irritating, that was long ago before i started accutane. Now if you add accutane on the equation, there you go, you will start blaming accutane, and not the moisturizer at all.

imo, i won't use that one, 8% glycolic acid its very irritating. i heard the lowest one was 2% lactid acid. lactic acid tends to be more mild than glycolic acid.

and post tane , well you need 2 months to stabilize your system again, so it won't be near 2 months after finishing.

taking a closer look at your regime it seems you are using a lactid acid aha in the morning

and one aha at night. BP its also irritating while on tane.

i would take away the AHAs during the threatment, and the BP. use a on the spot BP from neutrogena it works better and only put a SMALL amount.
