I've tried googling this and have had mixed results. I used to use a BHA as my chemical exfoliant but stopped since I started BP 5% (2.5% discontinued here) about a week ago, in case the two ended up really irritating my skin.
I am still using the BP once a day (at night) every other day to give my skin time to adjust. My face stings when I apply it and my cheeks become very warm and pink the day after applying but apart from that I am seeing/feeling no visible peeling or dryness to the skin. However, when I apply make-up It seems to look really flakey or separated, and I really want to try and exfoliate it, should I use BHA occasionally? what else would get rid of these flakes without hurting my skin?
