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.

Didn't see results

I wanted to try this because salicylic acid works well for me but I didn't feel this did much for my breakouts. I used it in conjunction with The Inkey List Hyaluronic Acid Serum as recommended and I think it helped make it less irritating. I don't have sensitive skin but if you do it might help. I would recommend the Succinic Acid Acne Treatment I felt it worked better for me.

Hello! Thank you for sharing your feedback and we're sorry to hear this is not your favourite. Glad to hear you have different products you enjoy! If your skin is too sensitive for our BHA, please take a look at PHA toner or Lactic Acid. Both of these are gentler alternatives! 🖤

Its Good!

I really like it, I am only giving 4 stars as I have only been trying it for a few weeks so I will wait a few months to see if I am still enjoying it.
