Benzoyl At Night And Aha+ In The Morning?

I want to get the best benefits of both.. but I don't want to use BP more than once a day.

Should I use AHA+ twice a day and just do BP at night? Or BP at night and AHA in the morning? Or the reverse?

I know that both increase sun sensitivity and AHA has lichalcalone(sp?) that can make me smell like licorice.

My thoughts:

At night your skin is working hardest to heal itself. So what would help it most? My guess: AHA

Second. Which of the two is is worse to have on in sunlight?

I don't think Aha gives a strange look and that doesn't really answer the q. Right now I'm using bp at night and spot treating with aha and a sulfur/resorcinol cream. Then in the mornings I put aha everywhere and sunscreen after it dries.

For washing I use a mild gentle cleanser with gse added by me (15ish drops).

Also just started using a witch hazel toner after cleansing.

Seems to be helping. I've only got one maybe 2 new pimples in the past week.
