  1. I had a perplexing experience with a chemical exfoliant, and months later I'm still not sure what was going on with my skin. I've dealt with acne for years, and I've come to the conclusion that it's partly hormonal and partly due to genetically oily skin and large pores. Anyway, several months ago I started using The Ordinary's AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution because I wanted to try chemical exfoliation. (At the time, I didn't realize I should gradually introduce my skin to chemical exfoliants
  2. Hey, I’m 14 years old supposedly struggling with hormonal acne. I’ve got spots and blackheads on my forehead, acne scars on my cheeks, whiteheads and blackheads on my nose and clogged pores pretty much everywhere. I’ve considered using AHA and BHA peels by The Ordinary as I’ve heard chemical peels really benefit your skin. I was wondering if they really work or if they make things worse. Has anyone tried chemical peels or are there alternatives?
  3. Hi, I was wondering if it was possible to use both AHA and BHA together. I use glycolic acid at night and I was wondering if I could use salicylic acid 2% gel in the morning or if it would be too much? Also, I'm a woc (black) and I have ice pick scarring, is there any other procedure except TCA peels that is suitable for my skin? I don't want to experience hyper or hypopigmentation. (I do not have any existing pimples right now, just a little hyperpigmentation and ice pick scarring)
  4. If I am only using the benzoyl peroxide on certain areas of my face, do I do the same with aha? For instance I am not putting the BP on my forehead at all , will I be putting the aha on my forehead once I start using it?
  5. Hi there, I'm looking for clarification when it comes to clearing my dark spots. I bought the acne.org treatment (cleanser, BP treatment, moisturizer and AHA). I don't currently have any active acne other than little bumps that showed up as you see in the pictures below while using the BP. All of the dark spots that I currently have on my face, chest and back are due to excessive picking. (Although I know I shouldn't, it's due to anxiety that I pick at the pimples I would get). What I'd like
  6. Hi, I have been on the regimen for almost three months. My skin is slowly improving, but it's definitely not clear yet. While I am aware that my skin will continue to be dry until it adjusts, it's a bit frustrating. I use Jojoba oil in my moisturizer at night, but not in the mornings. While it's helped the dryness, it's still hard to deal with and prevents me from wearing makeup. Would the next step be to add in the AHA+? I own a bottle of it but have not used it yet because I am very busy and
  7. Hi I was just wondering about how to properly use AHA. I am currently not using the regimen or any other acne treatments, but lately my acne has been coming back again. After using accutane my acne got better and my skin cleared up, but since September of this year I have been getting pimples again leaving me With dark spots once they are healed. So after Reading so much good reviews about AHA I want to give it a try too. So my question is, is it okay to use it without using the regimen, and if
  8. After using an AHA+BHA facewash, i notice my skin is getting shiner, it is a tiny bit oily but after i clean it, the shine is still there. It's not only on my t-zone but also on my cheeks. Is it possible that my facewash cause over-exfoliating?
  9. Hi, I've been on the regimen for over 3 months now, and I'm still struggling with flaking. They're always there when I get up in the morning, and it takes a lot of spot picking to make sure none surface throughout the day. I know what you're going to say: use aha! I use Aha every night as my nightly moisturizer, and still there is no difference. I lather jojoba oil over my face after I cleanse in the morning, and before applying Bp. Is there some mistake I'm making that permits these flakes to e
  10. My AHA+ smells pretty strongly. Like I get just a bit disgusted when using it. It smells like a mix of paint and mustard, a little sweet, so maybe honey mustard. I did read that other users noted that it had a smell but I wasn't sure about how strong it was. I can withstand the smell if it is normal for everyone else, but I'm just curious if there is something wrong with mine. Another detail I want to share is that the bottle arrived in my mailbox on Friday, but I was unable to pick it up u
  11. So I have been using the regimen for around 1 1/2 months. I have had success but I still have some clogged pores and maybe one or two small pimples. Unfortunately, every time one pimple goes away it seems that another one sprouts up in a different place, so I decided to start using AHA. First, I am just wondering it is OK to put AHA on even if I still have a few pimples. Just to let you all know, I have only been doing half AHA and half moisturizer cause I dont want to breakout. Second, when I u
  12. So I know there are a millions threads specific to flesh colored bumps, but I just had to share my own since everyone is different. Backstory: I've had mild-moderate acne since I was 15 years old (I'm now 20). The worst case happened at 18-19 where I broke out horribly on my cheeks and this acne was stubborn as heck. It was red, big, and left marks. Fortunately, the acne.org regimen did wonders and cleared my face up along with the hyperpigmentation! A year later, my forehead is still kind of
  13. I use Aczone (dapsone gel) in the morning and Ziana (clindamycine + tretinion ) at night. How do I use Glycolic acid and how often with combination of my topical routine? Like how do I switch it around with a BHA. Also I am thinking of using ACV as a toner , maybe later but for right now I want to use a BHA and if my skin responds well then possible use AHA ( I'm planning on using Paula's choice Pore Perfecting BHA exfoliant 2% ) heard good things about this BHA and it contains Green tea which
  14. Has anyone else experienced getting only half bottles when you ordered them? Disappointed
  15. I started using the regimen January of 2015. And stopped later summer of that year. When i started using it again this January, it didn't really gave a lot of difference to my skin as it did when i used it the first time last year. And when i started using the AHA this spring, it gave me allergic reactions to it. At first, i really doubted that it was from the AHA so i stopped using it just to be sure. And my allergies was gone. The puffiness and the redness of my face was gone. So i started usi
  16. I use Aczone (dapsone gel) in the morning and Ziana (clindamycine + tretinion ) at night. How do I use Glycolic acid and how often with combination of my topical routine? I have some acne flaring up since I am weaning off with Oracea 40 mg because I have been on the antibiotic (Doxycycline Hyclate 100mg) treatment since August 2015. I told my derma , I think its time to get off it because antibiotic for even a short period can do a lot of damage healthwise. So since weaning off my acne is sorta
  17. Hi! i'm turning to this because I cannot get rid of my closed comedones. i'm not even going to list my skincare routine right now.... I'm JUST wondering if anyone has had experience with this frustrating things. I don't get many pimples anymore, i just have a decent amount of closed comedones on my cheeks mainly.. A little on my forehead. I'm guessing it's from makeup foundation i've worn. But i cannot get them to go away. I started a new routine with AHA and BHA and i've had some improvement, b
  18. I have severe hormonal acne, but it has calmed down considerably lately and now I noticing a lot of hyper-pigmentation on my cheeks and chin which closely resembles active acne. I'm currently just trying to conceal it with BB creams (which are meant to have whitening properties), but preferably I would also like to fade it properly. I've been prescribed and applying benzoyl peroxide nightly for at least 6 weeks now and it has improved the severity and inflammation of my acne, but i ordered AHA
  19. Hi! im relatively new to the regimen, i started it a couple weeks ago and made the mistake of using 10% bp, my skin turned red and eventually i had a layer of dead skin that peeled of in large flakes, my skin felt tight and moisturizer did little to help but my acne seems to slowed and such. Im planning on buying from acne.org so i can stop with the hit and misses when buying from the store. As of right now i still get smaller dry flakes on my skin and cannot apply any more bp since i only have
  20. I am considering switching from bp to aha for my back due to bleaching and time constraints but am very nervous and don't want to mess with a great thing. Wondering-- I know retinoids must be applied religiously or they will not work, as you will just continually be getting your skin used t othe product. Does aha (and other chemical exfoliants) work the same way? If I use aha on a weekly basis or skip applications a few times will it be hugely less effective? One thin gI like about bp is tha
  21. I have finally found a regimen that works on my adult acne and wanted to share my results with you and let you know my routine. I struggled with mild to moderate acne since my early 20's. I have tried everything in the past! Even tried BP from Acne.org.... Finally, I discovered a perfect remedy by chance..... I use the following 2X a day: I have been blemish free for a month now!! Oil Free Acne Wash (any brand with Salicylic acid) AHA+ from Acne.org Clean and Clear Dual A
  22. Hello all, I'm not new to acne.org but i am new to AHA+. I haven't started using it yet, i just ordered some today. Hopefully it will arrive within a week. I've been on the Regimen for 4 weeks now. By the time the AHA+ gets to me i will be starting my 5th week on the regimen. Just to give you a little background on my acne. I have moderate acne. I started the regimen 4 weeks ago. I would usually get 4 to 5 zits on my face at a time. But now that i have been on the regimen for a little o
  23. Hi guys! Just checking in. I haven't really been on here for a couple of days since I've been busy with work. I guess I just wanted to give a quick update on my skin and also since I have been on the regimen for a couple of months now...a quick "what I have learned" post. HERE'S WHAT I'VE LEARNED: 1. Everybodys skin is different. And the same product will react differently to different people not only because of their skin types but also because of their skin sensitivity, or where they live, o
  24. Has anyone here used this? I'm trying to decide between ordering that or the Acne.org brand AHA and figuring out which one works best.
  25. Hello. Though I don't want to be entirely sure of it yet, it seems like I might've found solution to the bad acne I was having. But I have a lot of PIH ranging from darkish colors to redness, along with scars. Anyways, I've read in other threads here that AHA helps to get rid of the redness and PIH. So I was just wondering if anyone can recommend any products they might've tried that helped them to get rid of em.
