Should the Alpha Hydroxy Acid replace moisturizer?

Right now I take a shower, wash my face, use BP, then use Moisturizer. If I want to try out the Alpha Hydroxy Acid, should I now shower, wash face, use Alpha, then BP, but not the moisturizer at the end?

I think your face would get really dry if you did that. I use the Eucerin Skin Renewal day lotion suggested in the Regimen as my moisturizer and it contains lactic acid, which seems to be doing a good job at keeping my skins cells from building up. My only complaint is that it can sting slightly for about 15 seconds, but it doesn't cause redness. I can tolerate it for the benefits.
