AHA BHA

WEEK 1 I had acne for about 2 years and it stopped (since 2008) It wasn't anything serious but the 'after' acne was horrible. 1.Red marks WAS EVERYWHERE 2.My skin texture was SMOOTH but it looked like i had acne although I didn't In February 2010 I decided to go on a hunt for "the product to remove Red Marks" (imagine having the red marks on my cheeks for 2 years !!) I stumbled across Paula's Choice 8% AHA I used it for 2 weeks and the results were astounding !! My cheeks WERE NO LONGER RED, the red marks faded My LEFT cheek was COMPLETELY CLEAR - no scars no nothing After that I decided to give Paula's Choice BHA 2% Lotion a try - because the AHA was great 1. 1st week was fine, my skin was smooth 2. 3rd week i broke out with 3-4 pimples on my cheeks (I treated it with 2.5% Benzyol Peroxide) 3. 5th week, past pimples were gone but new ones came I thought it was purging so i stuck to it..and decided to give it another month 4. 2 months later, pimples came and go came and go - I couldn't take it anymore Then I stumbled across Acne.Org and STOPPED using BHA (Salicylic Acid) There's a video in Dan's blog about AHA & BHA and he prefers AHA. Now I'm back using, 8% AHA (today is my 2nd day) I hope everything goes back to normal My skin was clear UNTILL I STARTED USING BHA and now marks are everywhere AGAIN Conclusion BHA (Salicylic Acid) is not for everyone. Some has success unfortunately, not me. Currently : all im using is 2.5% benzyol peroxide / BP and 8% AHA / glycolic acid Shall see how AHA goes in week 2. I shall see if it can return my skin to normal
