Hey guys!

Ive been reading lots about AHA lately and im confused as to what its for?

People use it for moisturisers?

For getting rid of cysts?

For preventing a spot from 'surfacing'?

Is it truly a miracle cream?

Reason i ask is im almost clear now, i have a fair few scars which ill deal with next but i have ONE damn cyst that just wont go away. Had it drained, lanced. Tried BP and sulfur products and im on anti-biotics atm which dont seem to be making a difference :(

Thanks for any help you can give me :)

AHA is a chemical exfoliant. It works by breaking down the "glue" that holds dead skin cells together, so they can slough away more easily. Since it helps the skin to shed dead cells, it can help speed up the fading process for hyperpigmentation, and make skin look more even-toned.

Dan specifically formulated his AHA to be moisturizing as well as exfoliating, so some people use his AHA in place of their regular moisturizer from time to time.

AHA can also help prevent pimples from getting worse if you dab some on right when the pimple starts to form.
