AHA is an exfoliator. It chemically gets rid of dead skin so it won't clog up your pores and cause acne. I personally prefer AHA to any other acne med.

Generally, the moisterizers with AHA have a fairly small amount of AHA in them. You can most likely use them day and night, if you're not overdosing on other acne meds like BP, otherwise, it will be too irritating. You should just use the same amount as regular moisterizer. What kind are you using?

well i use retin a micro every nite and i have already been through the initial breakout from it but i mostly have just damn red marks so im hoping the aha will fade those? and my face doesnt get irritated very easily so i use aha during the day and then retin a during the nite.
