This brilliant chemical exfoliant is outstandingly useful if you have oily skin or pores that get easily congested. It clears congested pores and is anti-inflammatory while also hydrating the skin.

  • BHA stands for beta hydroxy acid, ie salicylic acid (it’s the only BHA there is). Like AHAs, salicylic acid will exfoliate the surface of the skin, by dissolving the bonds that are holding old cells onto the surface. Unlike AHAs, however, salicylic acid dissolves in oil, so it can work its way into congested pores, and clear them out.
  • It’s also anti-inflammatory so, if you have spots, it will reduce the inflammation while keeping your pores clear.
  • Like other hydroxy acids, BHA helps to hydrate the skin from within.

Use after cleansing on a clean, dry, face. Put some on a cotton wool pad and sweep it gently around your face. I like to use it 2 or 3 times a week in the evenings, but you can use it morning and night.
