I currently use both these products before bed. I use the tretinoin first, wait a few minutes, and apply an AHA cream. I haven't had any problems with this, but I am curious if this is OK. Should I continue this, use the AHA first, etc...any thougts?

If you don't have any signs of skin irritation, it should be ok. For some people, the combination is irritating.

I have often heard that AHA's shouldn't be used at night just the tretinoin at night and the AHA during the day. Let me clarify, you can use them at night but that they counteract each other a little and are best used separately. can anyone give me feedback on this?
