Frequently asked questions

Good to know before you start:

This product is an exfoliant and your skin has to get used to it. Build up use from once a fortnight to 1 to 2 times per day. It may take some trial and error to see what is the best frequency for your skin.
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.
Allergic to aspirin (acetylsalicylate)? Do not use this product as it contains salicylic acid (BHA).

What is the difference between Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Gel and Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid?

The biggest difference is the texture. 2% BHA Liquid is quickly absorbed into the pores and therefore works fast. 2% BHA Gel is a slightly thicker consistency but does not feel heavy or sticky. Both products contain 2% salicylic acid (BHA), they lightly hydrate skin and have a pH-value which is low enough for effective cleaning 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.

At what point after my laser and/or peel procedure can I begin using my BHA exfoliant again?

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.
