In our A-Z of skincare today we have an important B for you to get to know. It's BHA or Beta Hydroxy Acid.
BHA is a great way of clearing away daily dirt and grime from the skin which if left, can build up and cause blogged, clogged pores and lead to excess sebum production.
It’s a natural exfoliant so not only will it help to treat existing blemishes, with regular use it will help prevent future breakouts by targeting and removing bacteria before it even has a chance to form. It’s not just teenagers that have excess sebum production. Even in our 40’s we need to be regulating our oil production to ensure no pesky breakouts occur.
Further benefits of using BHA's that you'll probably be more enthused about include an active improvement in your skin's ability to produce collagen which, as we all know, will help result in visibly smoother, plumper and thicker skin plus that all important reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
So don’t be afraid of using acids. They won't strip your face, to the contrary, they'll give you the lovely flush of youth.
