How much exfoliation is too much?

Question: I am currently in the market for a new moisturizer. I have somewhat dry, redness-prone skin with occasional breakouts, and I'm thinking of trying a moisturizer with an AHA. I am trying to figure out if I should still be using a chemical exfoliant serum at night if I am also using a chemical exfoliant moisturizer. I currently use Herbivore Botanical's Glow Potion at night, which isn't super strong and doesn't seem to dry me out, but I am nervous about overdoing it if I introduce another AHA aspect to my routine. What is proper protocol here?
Answer:

Thank you for reaching out to us. I would recommend not using a moisturizer with an AHA . I would however recommend a nice hydrating moisturizer such as Herbivore Botanicals theirPink Cloud Rosewater Moisture Creme ,as I am reading that you have redness -prone skin. This moisturizer will help alleviate that . I hope this helps, have a nice day !Cyndee Dermstore Esthetician
