Will The Regimen By Itself Help Clear My Skin? Do I Need Aha+?

Recommended Posts

Hello, everyone!

I've been using AHA+ with the regimen, and for the first couple of weeks it did wonders! But now it's really starting to dry out my skin, making it flaky and red. I've stopped using it, but I'm worried my skin won't completely clear now that I've cut the AHA out. Will the 3-step regimen by itself still help my skin? Or is AHA a necessary step?

Because AHA is an adjunct, it doesn't eradicate acne (unless it's an extremely mild case); it just helps to prevent it. Used with the regimen, it can help to ensure clear skin. Think of BP and AHA as teammates.

The 3-step regimen (cleanser, treatment, & moisturizer) is absolutely necessary if you want completely clear skin. So in summary the AHA isn't necessary, but it's still nice to have because it improves skin complexion.
