Does anyone know if AHA can help with oily skin? I think I've read on a few sites online that it can help, but I was just wondering if anyone new if AHA was known for that or could help with it? Thanks!

AHA is basically a chemical exfoliant, so it gets rid of flakes and dry skin (or minimizes it). It's not really used to reduce oil production, unfortunately.

I'd say it depends on one's skin;

for me, AHA has reduced oiliness (that's because my skin used to be really thick -esp. in t-zone, nose and around the nose- and dry because of using BP products for many years & being sunburnt; that's why my skin produced a lot of oil). AHA has exfoliated my skin back to its somewhat normal, not so thick & dry state so my oiliness has definitely reduced (I have noticed the changed in just a few weeks; whenever I use makeup, I don't need to wipe my face / add powder as often as I had to before)

Just don't use too much of AHA or it will dry your skin waaay too much. Less is more. Good luck!
