Question about layering moisturizers

Recommended Posts

If I use an AHA-containing moisturizer and then layer it with say, Cetaphil moisturizer, will that prevent the AHA from exfoliating?

Illy, let me know how that goes for you.

I'm thinking about doing the same thing. I don't want to give up on AHA all together, because it actually does give my skin a very nice even-toned appearance (plus it's great for wrinkles -- and, well, I'm kinda up there in age now. *ahem*). But the extreme dryness I get from AHA is ridiculous. :mad:

I might consider using a very thin layer of aha moisturizer followed by a regular moisturizer too :think:

Instead of layering, Ginette, what I'm going to be doing is mixing the two moisturizers before applying them to my face, using much less AHA moisturizer than regular. It just seems that this way they'd absorb more evenly, and I'll tell you how it works out.
