AHA and BHA
1/ WHY DO YOU NEED TO USE AHA? • Treatment of skin pigmentation, sun-damaged skin • Treat acne • Increases collagen production • Peel skin • Treatment of patients with Psoriasis (in some documents, I still see them clamping with Betamethasone 0.1% to treat Psoriasis) The big problem here is that depending on the platform of the product, it will be classified for the appropriate skin type. For example, a bottle of AHA with dry alcohol is usually more prone to acne-prone skin, rather than dry skin, then buy a bottle of dry alcohol based AHA and blame people that why AHA is "for dry skin". so? So unlucky stars! But I tell everyone, AHA is not inferior to BHA in terms of acne and pigmentation patches. 2 / WHY DO YOU USE BHA? • Treat acne, hidden acne • Cleans the pores • Reduces oil secretion on the skin • Anti-inflammatory The functions of BHA are more prone to acne skin, so most of them are used in the treatment of acne, inflammatory acne, hidden acne, ... to completely resolve that condition. In addition, when we add Niacinamide / Retinol, it is a divine pair, both reducing oil, better anti-inflammatory and bringing a marked improvement in skin pigmentation. Some product I recommend: OBAGI - Clenziderm M.D. Pore Therapy PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Gel Exfoliant Cos De BAHA - AHA Glycolic Acid 10% Serum With Witch Hazel Whitehead Power Liquid ALPHA-H - Liquid Gold Exfoliating Treatment with Glycolic Acid DON’T FORGET TO USE SUNSCREEN IN THE MORNING

Unpopular Opinion!
I was hearing that ALPHA-H - Liquid Gold Exfoliating Treatment with Glycolic Acid was all the hype ! Everyone was raving on about how good it was, so I splurged and bought it to try out myself. Firstly, the packaging seems a bit cheap, and my bottle keeps leaking ? Not sure if this is common with others, but if I’m spending $60 on essentially a “toner” I don’t want to be wasting it on my bathroom tiles! Secondly, when I applied this to my skin, oh my gosh - did it go super red and very itchy - almost like a burning sensation. I kept it in for a couple of minutes to see if it would sink in and the redness would go away - it didn’t. I had to wash my face again to remove this product and ease the burning feeling. I don’t have sensitive skin, but I do have “thin skin” so I’m not sure if it was because of the glycolic acid , or the alcohol in it (alcohol is the second ingredient) - but it definitely wasn’t a pleasant feeling. I might give it a second chance in the future, but for now I think I will steer clear from it. Has anyone else used this product before and had the same reaction ? Let me know!

New to me Alpha-H skincare
Was sent these goodies and I am quite pleased with how those down under do skincare. The cleanser is like my fav item as it cleans without stripping. I also like their reuseable cleaning clothes which may replace my disposable clothes as these are sturdy and have a light exfoliating flow to them. The toner is a bit heavy on the alcohol base but seems like a nice gentle exfoliate. ALPHA-H - Micro Super Scrub with 12% Glycolic Acid this scrub states it can be used on face and body but I’m not about that life so on my body it’s been a yummy experience.

EXFOLIATING ACIDS & How Not To Overdo It!!!👀✨💖
Exfoliating acids are everywhere now and so many new products are about exfoliating the skin to “reveal brighter, smoother skin”. In the age of exfoliating now, it’s so easy to overdo and can easily result in harming the skin instead. Here are my favorite exfoliating acids (and products) and how I use it so I don’t damage my skin! Lactic Acid: A super gentle acid that exfoliates the top layer of skin and removes dead skin cells. I find this to be the most gentle of the acids and can be used everyday. I love fresh - Black Tea Kombucha Facial Treatment Essence because I use it as an essence treatment. This is a liquid formula that easily sinks into the skin and “primes” the skin for the next products. It’s also a hydrating formula! Azelaic Acid: Another more gentle exfoliating acid that helps improve the appearance of blemishes and fade post-acne marks. I love this PAULA'S CHOICE - 10% Azelaic Acid Booster because it can be mixed into your moisturizer and boost the effectiveness. I love that this speeds up the healing process of my acne marks because then I get clearer skin quicker! Salicylic Acid: One of the most effective exfoliating acids for treating and preventing acne! It exfoliates deep into the layers of skin and removes dead skin cells. PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator is a super strong and effective formula that I like to use when I’m breaking out A LOT. It’s too harsh on my skin to use daily but once a week is fine. I also love LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Medicated Gel Cleanser for Acne Prone Skin which I use every night to wash my face. It’s just as effective and not too strong for daily use because it’s a wash off product and doesn’t stay on the skin. Glycolic Acid: Easily one of the strongest and deeply exfoliating acids out there. I find it super effective as a night serum like DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum or as a scrub like ALPHA-H - Micro Super Scrub with 12% Glycolic Acid . I use these products 2 times a week just to keep my skin free of congestion and to maintain the texture of my skin.

Top Tips for Treating Hyperpigmentation!
I have combination, oily skin that is prone to breakouts, the breakouts lead to hyperpigmentation which is my biggest skin concern. I've been dealing with hyperpigmentation for what seems like forever and have learned some important tips when it comes to it! Tip #1: Use SPF religiously! For anyone dealing with hyperpigmentation this is the most important tip because the sun's UV rays can cause pigmentation to darken. SPF is also essential because many treatments for hyperpigmentation, like acids, can cause the skin to be even more sensitive to the sun. My top SPFs are: elta md SKINCARE - UV Clear Broad Spectrum SPF 46 Supergoop! - 100% Mineral Smooth & Poreless Matte Screen SPF 40 SKINCEUTICALS - Physical Fusion Uv Defense SPF 50 Tip #2: Use Vitamin C in your routine! Vitamin C is an antioxidant that lightens dark spots, it also contains an enzyme that helps to prevent melanin production - effectively preventing hyperpigmentation! My Vitamin C products are: SKINCEUTICALS - Phloretin Cf FARMACY - Very Cherry Bright 15% Clean Vitamin C Serum with Acerola Cherry URBAN SKIN Rx - Even Tone Smooth & Glow Enzyme Mask Tip #3: Niacinamide is a powerhouse at fighting pigmentation! Similar to vitamin C, niacinamide fights and prevents hyperpigmentation. It also helps to treat acne which for many of us is the main cause of our hyperpigmentation! My favorite products with niacinamide are: PETER THOMAS ROTH - Pro Strength Niacinamide Discoloration Treatment THE inkey LIST - Niacinamide Oil Control Serum Tip #4: Add a retinoid to your routine! Retinoids speed up the cell turnover rate, which for pigmentation means it helps to fade dark spots faster. I use a tretinoin, which is a prescription you can get from your dermatologist, but there are other great options like retinol! Here are my favorite retinol products: SKINCEUTICALS - Retinol 0.5 Retinol Night Cream DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel Additional Tips: Acid is your friend, but don't overdo it! Protect your moisture barrier! Healthy skin will heal the fastest! If your breakouts are hormonal, you may need to do some research into your diet! I've cut dairy and eggs because my body doesn't tolerate them and they were leading to hormonal breakouts.

Opened the Balancing Cleanser right away. I mean it is a cleanser, so I didn't actually have to plan a system to incorporate it. I just replaced it with my existing cleanser in my morning routine. The creamy three-in-one Balancing Cleanser is rich in Vitamin E and Aloe Vera and works  to correct the skin’s natural pH balance. Free of harsh surfactants, the non-foaming cleanser is very soothing to use and is safe around the eyes as well. It is like applying a layer of thin moisturizer on the face. Cleans effectively and does not strips the skin of its natural oils. I use it in the morning as my only clease, because there is no makeup and I just need something very simple, moisturizing and balancing, enough to remove the leftover lotions and potions from the PM routine and start with a clean slate to slather on more lotions and potions 😀 This fits the bill completely. I have not used this as a first cleanser over makeup yet. It is gentle enough to be used around the eyes as well. So I will give it a try soon. It is a really good cleanser. It really is 😀Yet to crack open the other product, The essential Hydration cream.

Products You Should Never Mix: Retinol & Acids
Active ingredients are the apple of the skincare community's eye! We can't get enough of them, but not all of them belong in a routine together! Let's talk about retinol and acids. Retinol is a member of the vitamin A family. It resurfaces the skin, fades dark spots and softens fine lines. Acids are exfoliants. They resurface the skin, fade dark spots and soften fine lines. So they both do the same thing, but in different ways! So why can't they work in the same routine? Well using them together can lead to irritation. You'll destroy your skin's barrier most likely leaving it red and extremely sensitive. There are also some studies that show retinol isn't as effective on "acidic" skin! It may disrupt the process that retinol must undergo. Retinol can also neutralize acid, making it less effective. So how can you incorporate both, easily actually! Use acids in the morning and retinol at night. This is how I use both and I have no negative side effects. I get the benefits of both active ingredients without compromising my skin's barrier! You can also opt for using a mask with acid at night, I would still take the night off from a retinol but if you wait long enough between products you could potentially still use your retinol. I have used both in the same routine and after one night of this application my skin was itchy and irritated, my barrier was compromised and I had to then strip my routine back to the basics and address the sensitivity. If you're using either acids, retinol or both be sure you are wearing SPF 30 (at least!) every single day! Curology - Curology formula ALPHA-H - Liquid Gold Ultimate Perfecting Mask

Stay away!!
Stay away!!
ALPHA-H - Liquid Gold Exfoliating Treatment with Glycolic Acid This product is SO insanely drying. The second ingredient is alcohol, if I had noticed that I would never have purchased. Even if you have really oily skin, I would not recommend this. It is far too drying and far too harsh! There are many far more effective glycolic treatments on the market that are less harsh.

FAVORITE Exfolianting Mask
FAVORITE Exfolianting Mask
Okay put down Drunk Elephant's Babyfacial, there's a new exfolianting mask in town! Well not new, but dare I say better? It's a mix of 15% glycolic, 5% lactic acid and tazman pepper (an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory ingredient). Hyaluronic acid and shea butter also nourish the skin. I prefer this to Babyfacial because it's a lower percentage and doesn't leave my skin sensitized, like Babyfacial can. At 20% it's still a strong peel and will absolutely leave you with the glowing and smooth skin that a peel should! At $75 the price is comparable to Babyfacial, but on the high end when compared to other brands. I think it's worth it for the clean and effective ingredients. I also think that it's a safer bet than Babyfacial, but always test new products! I would recommend this and will continue to repurchase! ALPHA-H - Micro Super Scrub with 12% Glycolic Acid

A comparison of glycolic toner
A comparison of glycolic toners • Pixi is a classic and I find it a bit more moisturising compared to the other two. I would give it at 7/10 • Alpha H is a bit harsher but I find it really good for congested skin and notice an overnight difference but it is a bit drying. I would give it a 6.5/10 • The Ordinary toner is my favourite. I find it works really well even for my sensitive skin. It’s harsh but doesn’t cause my skin to be sensitised. I would give it an 8.5/10

The ALPHA-H - Liquid Gold Exfoliating Treatment with Glycolic Acid is normally a cult favorite but to me it’s really bad. I really don’t enjoy using this. It smells like I’m putting straight rubbing alcohol on my face. I also didn’t notice any results from this. I personally think there are better exfoliators out there for cheaper as well. I won’t repurchase and I wouldn’t recommend.
