Yeah, this happens to me too. I think I'm prone to it because I'm very fair-skinned. I've particularly had problems w/ AHA turning my face red, although only for a few hours. All I can suggest is lowering the dosage you use until your skin develops tolerance. Also, I believe BP, AHA, etc. makes one more prone to sunburn. Maybe this is what's causing your redness? I only use the AHA at night to give my skin a chance to settle down before I have to go out. Good luck w/ everything.

BP only at night? Tough call. I'm trying to stick to the regimen for a while and make a decision from there, so that's where I'm at. I don't know if you think this might be sunburn or maybe your skin reacting to the BP. It's recommended all over this site that you start w/ a small amount of BP and work your way up. I'm assuming this is what you've done? If not, give it a try. Also, if you think this might be sunburn, then remember to use a high spf sunscreen that doesn't clog pores. Also, it's stated on this site that some redness is normal at first. I'm not sure how long you've been at this. Take all this into account and I'm sure you'll find a solution.
