Aha+, Initial Dryness/flaking?

Recommended Posts

Hey there,

I've been on the regimen for a month and a half now, and a few days ago I started using AHA. Before this, my skin wasn't really dry/red from the BP any longer. Since I've begun using the AHA, it's flaking so much and is quite dry, too, even though I'm using the moisturiser too. Is this just initial drying? Also, what would you recommend is the best way to apply AHA?

My daughter is in the exact same position as you - been on the Regimen for 6 weeks and is experiencing dryness. Apparently this is quite normal if you look at the chart of what to expect each week on the Regimen website. She mixes the AHA with her moisturizer and puts it on at night. During the day she sometimes puts more moisturizer on during the day. Make sure you have a moisturizer that won't clog your pores and you can apply it as much as you want.

I think that the drying is all part of the process (as long as it is not severe ie. red and itchy etc) So hang in there.

Good luck!
