How to use an exfoliant
Apply 1-2 pumps over entire face and neck, including the eye area (avoid lash line and eyelids) after cleansing and toning. Do not rinse.
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 first to find out what best suits your skin. During the day, always use a moisturiser with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or higher. Your skin will be slightly more sensitive to sunlight when using an exfoliant, so the chance of sunburn and sun damage is slightly higher.
The biggest difference is the texture: the 2% BHA Liquid is a lightweight fluid while the 2% BHA Gel has a thicker consistency, without feeling heavy or sticky on the skin. Both products contain 2% salicylic acid (BHA), they lightly hydrate the skin and have a pH-value low enough to effectively clean deep inside the pores. These BHA exfoliants are suitable for all skin types, but if you have oily skin you may prefer the 2% BHA Liquid.
First, we urge you to follow the post-procedure instructions your doctor or nurse provided. Otherwise, our general advice is to begin using your BHA again as soon as possible. Or, if your skin seems extra-sensitive, you may want to wait and apply the BHA exfoliant a few days post-procedure. Salicylic acid is an excellent anti-inflammatory ingredient that can enhance the skin's natural healing process as it works to reduce post-procedure redness.
