How to use
When using a BHA exfoliant for the first time, introduce it into your routine slowly. Start by using your exfoliant once every other day, and then increase usage to once or twice daily based on your skin’s response.
Apply once or twice daily after cleansing and toning. Apply a coin-sized amount over the entire face, including the eyes (avoid the lower lash line and eyelids). Do not rinse. For daytime, always follow with a moisturiser containing a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater.

Good to know before you start using your exfoliant.
It is best to gradually build up use of a BHA product. Start by using your exfoliant once every other day and then increase usage to once or twice daily based on your skin’s response. You need to experiment a bit to see what suits your skin best. During the day, always use a moisturiser with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater. Your skin will in fact be slightly more sensitive to sunlight when using an exfoliant, so the chance of sunburn and sun damage is slightly higher.
What strength BHA should I use? Will a higher concentration provide better results?
Which BHA strength you opt to use should be based on your skin type and the stubbornness (or severity) of your spots or blackheads. For reddened, extra-sensitive skin, the 1% BHA strength is a great starting point to see how using a BHA can improve the skin’s condition. This strength may be all you need, or, in the future, if your skin responds well you can consider a higher strength BHA.
