I've been using Differin in the evening for almost 5 months. I have less acne than before but I still have a lot of red marks, flakes and even a few dents... I'm thinking about adding AHA 8% in the morning to even out my skin tone / fade red marks.

Can I use this together with Differin or will it be too much for the skin to handle?

I'd start very slowly: add in the AHA once a week for a while to see how your skin reacts. It might be tolerable.

You could also talk to your doctor about a more potent retinoid, like Retin A. That might make enough difference that you don't need to use an AHA. Check with your doc. :)
