I just began a product which has SA and AHA for ecne which seemed goo the first few days but now it feels rather stingy and burny and Ive redness in my nose and cheeks, feels like flushing. Not good I may have rosacea. It feels like rosacea after this anyhow

I am wondering should I just go back to the bp? I got a bit dry with bp but not this irritated.

Ive also been using a make up with sa and maybe its all too much.

Salicylic acid can actually bring down redness as long as you don't use too high of a percentage. I do well with 2%-5%. I use Dianne Yvonne's 5% Serum currently. It does give me a bit of redness initially, but after about 20 minutes I'm actually paler than I was before.

However many rosaceans do not respond well to AHA.
