Hey, been using the CSR for a month, and it works for the most part as long as im taking care of my body and not partying to much. Want to give some alpha hydroxy a shot.

Just got the Alpha Hydrox product in the mail, and want to get some advice before i apply it to my face.

So I do the CSR twice a day(basis soap/dan's bp/and just start euricin face renewl stuff). What is your guys recommendation on how to incorporate Alpha Hydrox into my regimen?

Which alpha hydrox product? I don't know that it makes a difference, except that if it has a lower AHA concentration and spf you could probably use it in the morning, whereas I could only use the souffle at night. In the morning I just cleanse, tone with witch hazel, and use moisturizer (without acids). At night I cleanse and tone, then apply duac gel, let it dry, and apply the souffle very lightly. If my skin feels especially sensitive I top it with aloe gel.

so are you not following the CSR at all? no BP?

The Duac gel contains BP, plus clindamyacin (it's a prescription). I only use it at night because it looks gross under makeup, and I didn't really notice that using it twice a day was any more effective than using it once (if I'm staying home though I do use it in the morning).

Just experiment to see what works best for you. I use Dan's BP at night with no moisterizer. I use a different AHA moisterizer (Neutrogena Healthy Skin Lotion) during the day. Some people apply the AHA as a moisturizer after the BP. I personally found it made the BP clump too badly. It may not matter if you put the AHA on first and then the BP, but I never tried that. Just experiment to see what works for your skin.

Good Luck!
