I think i broke my skin.

I used green cream (level 9) and AHA too many days in a row (5) and now my skin stings like hell.

Its dry, especially around the eye-cheek area.

Applying a gentle moisturiser hurts like hell.

How do i make my skin go back to how it was?

Will bio-oil help?

Oh god help

I'm sorry to hear that. :(

I searched for green cream and saw Vitamin A is it's main component. Vitamin A makes you more sensitive to the sun. So does AHA. Combine the two, and well, you get extra extra sensitive. I think

Were you using sunblock? If you didn't then you should have. In any case, I suggest you don't use any harsh chemical for a few days or a week until the skin heals. Drink water. Maybe use healing cream by Mario Badescu. Zinc Oxide may help heal it too.

For the condition that your skin is in right now, I wouldn't use any kind of detergent, soap-based products that will strip your face of the oils it needs right now.. Just like the gentle cetaphil and let it be.
