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
