FAQ's Beta Hydroxy Acid

I HAVE DRY, BLEMISH PRONE SKIN, CAN I STILL USE IT?

 Beta Hydroxy Acid is formulated with 1% Hyaluronic Acid which makes it non drying and good to use even when your skin is dry. You can also use it only 2-3 times per week when needed.


HOW TO USE WITH OTHER PRODUCTS

As this product is exfoliating, avoid using at the same time as Alpha Hydroxy Acids (Glycolic Acid, AHA, Lactic Acid) or Retinol.


CAN I USE IT WHILE PREGNANT OR BREASTFEEDING? 

We recommend to avoid using exfoliating acids, such as Beta Hydroxy Acid, when pregnant or breastfeeding. Consult with your doctor to stay on a safe side. 


AHAS VS BHAS, WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) are chemical exfoliators. Water-soluble, they work on the surface of the skin, encouraging cell turnover to reveal a brighter, more even complexion. Use in the PM and protect your skin with SPF during the day. E.G Apple Cider Vinegar. Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs) are also chemical exfoliators. They are oil soluble, which means they work deeper in your pores, helping to target blackheads and reduce the bacteria that can lead to breakouts. Use AM or PM and protect your skin with SPF during the day. E.G. Beta Hydroxy Acid


HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS? 

Products can take up to six weeks to show full results, due to the time it takes for your skin cells to turnover and the results of any products to reach the surface. Consistency is key, so apply regularly even if you’re not seeing the effects straight away. It can be very tempting to increase use of some products to try and see quicker results, don't overdo it though. More is not necessarily more, and overuse can cause irritation and sensitivity.

BHA is an exfoliator that works beneath the surface of the skin to help unclog pores, target blackheads and reduce excess oil.

This serum contains 2% Salicylic Acid which means it can penetrate deeper into your skin, helping to unclog pores, fight blackheads and breakouts and reduce pore appearance. BHA is great choice for oilier skin as its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties can help calm breakout prone skin without any burning or tingling sensation. Thanks to added 1% Hyaluronic Acid it is non-drying to skin.

Stable product

I believe you need to use this product for at least 7 days to see any results because it is mild on the skin compared to other exfoliating products. It’s good for small zits and big pores.

This product is good at keeping new spots away. I recommend to use this product with niancinimade and just a normal basic cream afterwards. In the morning defintly use sunscreen. I like mineral sunscreen for acne prone skin because the zinc oxide in these sunscreens decreases redness and keep the oil level at control. The sunscreen from the Ordinary, I love!

Hi there!

We absolutely recommend to give skincare few weeks to see full results and being consistent is the key!

We also do not recommend using Niacinamide in the same routine with Beta Hydroxy Acid as these do not work well together and may irritate the skin. We suggest to use BHA in the PM as your exfoliant and Niacinamide can be used daily in the AM.

Yes! SPF is an absolute must 🖤

Do not hesitate to get in touch if you ever need any skincare or haircare help!

I had clogged pores in certain areas and was told it was normal and would stay that way. This one was the game changer for me. Glass bottle or not, this gets a 5 stars and i will marry it.

Finally happy with my skin!

I’ve never been in love with my skin, it’s just so breakout sensitive with everything I use. This BHA has been wonderful! I started using your retinol also and had just a couple breakouts from that but because of the bha they were gone within two days and the rough texture on my cheeks is so smooth now. I’m so grateful you guys make this so affordable!

Leaves skin refreshed

I like this product, I use it after Toner which is hopefully the right thing to do lol but I have definitely seen a difference with my skin after using this. Does feel a little thick on application but I probably just need to cut back on the amount I use.

Hi there! This is perfect layering, BHA is your treat step so comes after cleansing and before moisturizer. Pea size amount is just fine!

Good

Now I’ve only started using this in the past week so I’m hoping I will notice a difference soon with my black heads …
