    Redness from AHA

    So, I've been on the regimen for almost 2 months and have just introduced AHA. I've been using it in place of my nightly moistoriser for the past 3 days, however, the areas I've used it on have turned bright red! Is this normal? Will it fade after a few more days while my skin adjusts? I haven't been outside at all so my skin hasn't been exposed to the sun. Advice please Heather xoxo
  2. Ahhhh lame! :( SEE, surely this is a sign that you should use the simple products i recommended!

    1. hey i tried that stuff. it clogged my pores damn it. but interestingly when i added jojoba oil to it, it didnt. however it balls up and you lose most of it in your hand :( I'm thinking about adding jojboba oil to aloe vera gel, as a night time moisturiser. any thoughts?

        LOL Glad to hear the redness has subsided into something a tad more aesthetically pleasing XD I quite liked the 'glow' stage! However, a few people said it looked like I had foundation on, so I'm undecieded whether it was a good or bad thing afterall Well done for getting (almost) past the week stage. As I said before, persaverance is key! But now, a word of warning. You're skin is begining to look great and clear up rapidly, but don't let that trick you! In my case, after the intital week

        Again, I have to say it, your posts are so readable XD Love 'em XD And you traitor! How dare you switch from my beloved *big breath* Simple SPF age reisting day moistorisng cream! I shall have you hung, drawn and quartered indeed! XD But what ever works for you I guess Olay is pretty good too, so nice choice there But try and invest in an SPF ...something! for when you leave the house, 'cause the BP makes your skin super duper sensitive I can see what you a mean by the redness and stuff fr

        Hey Tom! You seem to be off to a good start Like you, I went a bit crazy with the BP at first and experienced the same fatal reaction lol But try not to go TOO mad with the moistoriser to counter-act the dryness (that will rectify itself in a few days anyway) because when I did that, it seemed to break me out a bit. Keep it up Heather xoxo P.s. You're blogs are extremely readable! So keep 'em coming
      4. and a moistoriser with aloe vera sounds good. idk a lot about aloe vera, other than its extremely soothing! which can only be a good thing after what the BP does to your face XD so give it a go and let me know what YOU think of it :)

        1. Aww i'm sorry to hear you've had bad reactions to Simple :( i honestly swear by their stuff! but i guess its not for everyone!

              1. second post *with NO bp* (lol)

                1. ok third post haha. Now, a night time moisturiser. I dont have this yet but i found in the expert sensitive range - 'expert sensitive hydrating moisturiser'. Only thing is it had aloe vera, Ive heard aloe vera is good for acne. What you think?

                  1. So - I found in this boots range something called 'expert sensitive intensive daily moisturiser spf 15'. I tried it today (with BP because my skin had a bad reaction from the simple moisturiser so im resting it). Ive had this stuff on all day and it feels fine, no sting (although no bp) and no spots yet.

                    1. hey thanks for getting back to me :) I decided to go for boots 'expert sensitive' range in the end because i had a bad reaction to another simple moisturiser the other day, so im gonna stay away from simple just in case (dont wont to waste more money)

                        5% BP

                        Tbh, any BP percentage over 2.5% for the face is no good...IMO anyway. I use PanOxyl 2.5% with a good moistoriser and after 2 months I'm clear. PLUS it didn't irritate my face (bar the intial hardening stage of BP which you would have to put up with from any BP product anyway). Heather xo
