Post BP cream and BHA,can b used 2gether? plz help

OK, im reallly confuse.. and i need help.

I have Aqua Glycolic face cream for my skin.. to help fade away red spots and brown spots.
I need a lightening lotion for my brown spots that doesnt contain hydroquinone. Anyone know any good OTC products!??!?!?!?!

ok.. i wash my face with aveeno balancing bar..
I use Zapzyt (bp) cream from Wal-Mart, which works great!!! And i also have a 5% BHA. Can i use the BHA after the BP cream..

I also have a Alpha Hyrdrox 9% AHA.

so what kind of regime can i use to use this all.. or what do i need to get rid of!?!?!?!?

Im still in search of a great unmedicated cleanser!

your response will be greatly appreciated.. THANK you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, the BHA is 5%, i got it from a local salon..

I thought its better to use BP cream before anything else? To let it absorb it into ur skin????

I'll try ur method. I'll alternate the AHA at night and use BHA in the morning.. or alt every other night. I also haev the glycolic acid, which i used last night over the BP.. and its not so bad.

So far, the zapzyt works great, been using it for 3 days now, and the huge blemish i had for a weeks, is finally getting smaller..

I have tried cetaphil, but it causes blkheads. I was thinking maybe trying the Neutrogena Original bar, fragrance free????
But so far, i like the Aveeno oatmeal soap... its great!!

Sorry to jump in here, but a quick thank you to Tim for this lesson....very informative. CrazyaboutBlue, if you are liking your cleanser than stay with it. I find I am always looking around for something better.......if something is working, then run with it!

Just a note on Cetaphil, which I would have never used b4 because it did not remove my make up, the Cetaphil for oily skin does a better job and it's very mild. For a treat I will use Paula's idea about mixing the Cetaphil with some baking soda for a mild, but effective scrub.

Cannot help you on the lightening products just yet.....I too am working on the clearing process right now. Good luck in your search.

Haha..."lesson"?? You're both very welcome...any time!

crazyabout blue, I only recommended applying BP last because of the suggested sequence of other routines, i.e. Paula's Choice, and Proactive (you apply the BP lotion after the glycolic acid toner). This is how I've always done it. If anything, I'd think that applying it *after* a BHA or AHA would help it to absorb better because the acids would exfoliate the dead skin cells out of the way first. Maybe you could dry both before and after and see if one yields better results.
