In Topic: Can People Recommend A Salicylic Acid "treatment"?

08 February 2014 - 04:35 AM

I was on BP treatment for a looong time, for over 20years.. Now I am happy with the 2% BHA extra strenght clear liquid by paulas choice. I use this in the evening, for daytime i use the 2% BHA gel, no other moisturizer required in my case.
I recently added retinol ( green cream) to the routine and it works beautiful!  But to be honest, the Spiro had already cleared me from my deep cysts

I really love the combo of BHA, retinol an for the extremely rare case of a zit, BP as a spot treatment. I think AHA might bring similar results.

Add a BHA to your regimen. You could start wtih Paulas Choice 2% extra strength exfoliating solution or the gel, and on some evenings add an AHA for the flaking .

You definately have to find a regiment that lets you come off this crazy diet.

I have no clue about accutane, but about closed comedones. A chemical peel will kill those. I use Paulas Choice 2% BHA and it works for me. There are much stronger chemical peels available in the USA, like the ones by  MUAC. But you could just try the PC stuff. i use them every night and evening, and 3 times a weeks replace the evening application with an 10% AHA Peel
