  1. I've not tried the other BHAs, I went with the liquid because I found the most reviews on it! I had an initial break out with the BHA Liquid but after that cleared (2-3 weeks) I did find my pore size improved somewhat, but definitely using the AHA had more effect on pore size. Whether the BHA had done the ground work or not I don't know, but I think the two seem to work together nicely! For me at least.
  2. Hi all, I've been using Paula's Choice 8% AHA and 2% BHA Liquid for a while now and my skin is so much better than it was, but with the UK summer and a holiday coming up where I can't and don't want to avoid sun exposure, is a good sun cream going to be enough to protect the skin on my face? I've got an spf 25 facial suncream from Dermalogica, but I don't know whether I should stop using the AHA and BHA before I go on holiday and then start again when I come back, or what to do about the (occas
  3. I was using Paula's choice 2% BHA liquid for about 1 1/2 months, twice daily when I started using an 8% 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've heard good reviews about Madelic acid but the products aren't really available in the UK where I am, I only found one which didn't help me as much as
  4. Hi all, I hear such mixed reviews on toners that I don't know whether I should use one or not. I already use Paula's Choice 2% BHA in the morning and 8% AHA in the evening and my skin tone, pore size and inflamed acne (which is now, touch wood, as good as non-existant) is so much better. However, I still have what I guess are sebaceous filaments (sorry for the spelling) in my T zone area, although less so on my forehead, mainly the nose and the nose area of the cheek. I was wondering if a tone
  5. 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 jun

  8. I've just bought a sample of this; I've been using the 2% BHA liquid and the morning and the 8% AHA in the evening for 6 weeks or so and they've definitely helped my marks. Going to use the Resist product once a week in the evening instead of my normal AHA.
  9. I've been off BC (Marvelon) for about 6 weeks as I thought it was contributing to my skin problems. So far my skin is much better (no active acne) - fingers crossed! I dreaded this kind of post BC breakout though, and what I've tried to do to balance my hormones as quickly as possible is: - Cook from scratch - plenty of fresh fruit and veg - Only wholegrain carbs - Plenty of water - No caffeine - Reduce sugar intake (except from fruit) - 1000mg evening primrose oil - Agnus castus supplement - E

  12. I'd try a BHA; I use paula's choice 2 % liquid bha and although I had an initial breakout my skin has now not looked this good in years. It works over time to exfoliate within the pores to stop the buildup of gunk that causes acne. You'll need to invest in a good sun cream though if you use chemical exfoliants reularly.
  13. I use Paula's Choce 2% BHA liquid and 8% AHA. (BHA in the morning, AHA in the evening). I had an initial breakout while my skin purged but now my skin hasn't looked this good in ages. The shipping to the UK is expensive but you can order samples to try first - I would def recommend doing that.
  14. I use the top one and it's great - but it's mainly for healing and hyperpigmentation rather than prevention.
  15. We've all made that mistake with picking - I find 99.9% certified aloe vera gel is amazing if I've pissed my skin off. Manuka honey UMF 15 also has excellent healing properties - I'd dab it on and leave it over night under a plaster.
