Is AHA or BHA Better for Acne? – Korean Skincare Tips
A popular step in the Korean skincare routine is using products containing the chemical exfoliants: AHA and/or BHA. Both these ingredients have fantastic benefits for our skin, but which one is better in helping to clear acne?
In short, both AHA and BHA are effective at combating acne although they both do so in slightly different ways. Which chemical exfoliant works best for your skin also depends on your skin type, with AHA being better suited for dry skin and BHA being better suited for oily skin. However, you can still benefit from both AHA and BHA (no matter what your skin type) by following a few simple skincare tips that I discuss in this post.
