AHA against blackheads?

Recommended Posts

How can AHA help against blackheads, if it can't get inside the pore?

Really wondering about that, a lot of people claiming that it helped them!

I thought BHA was a better product to use against blackheads?

I was using Paula's choice 2% BHA liquid for about 1 1/2 months, twice daily to help tighten my pores and reduce seb filaments, when I started using an AHA instead in the evening to help with red marks. My pores have been smaller and I've been much happier with my skin overall since I've started doing that, so I can definitely recommend using both - BHA in the morning, AHA in the evening.

I don't know why it helped, but maybe because it gets rid of the surface skin better and clears out the junk closer to the surface, whilst the BHA exfoliates lower down?
