AHA's = dependency problem?

Recommended Posts

Would AHA's be bad for your skin in the long run, like make your skin dependent on them for the rest of your life? My brother outgrew acne when he was 22, and I want to make sure I do as well (I am 19) and not be dependent on products all my life.

My forehead has never been particularly bad, but when I used AHA's it completely cleared. However, I stopped using it and my forehead broke out like 10x as bad as before I ever used anything on it (but is going away now as I use AHA's on it again). The rest of my face broke out somewhat but not as bad.

So I am wondering, will AHA's cause any sort of dependency problem if you keep using it?

I really don't think that using AHA's is creating a dependency problem. If you stop using them and start breaking out it just means that the AHA's work for you. In other words, I don't think they are preventing you from outgrowing acne. Congratulations on finding something that works for you! If your skin starts getting irritated then it might be time to try and see if you can do without it, but for now, I wouldn't.

Good Luck!
