FAQ's Beta Hydroxy Acid

I HAVE DRY, BLEMISH PRONE SKIN, CAN I STILL USE IT?

 Beta Hydroxy Acid is formulated with 1% Hyaluronic Acid which makes it non drying and good to use even when your skin is dry. You can also use it only 2-3 times per week when needed.


HOW TO USE WITH OTHER PRODUCTS

As this product is exfoliating, avoid using at the same time as Alpha Hydroxy Acids (Glycolic Acid, AHA, Lactic Acid) or Retinol.


CAN I USE IT WHILE PREGNANT OR BREASTFEEDING? 

We recommend to avoid using exfoliating acids, such as Beta Hydroxy Acid, when pregnant or breastfeeding. Consult with your doctor to stay on a safe side. 


AHAS VS BHAS, WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) are chemical exfoliators. Water-soluble, they work on the surface of the skin, encouraging cell turnover to reveal a brighter, more even complexion. Use in the PM and protect your skin with SPF during the day. E.G Apple Cider Vinegar. Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs) are also chemical exfoliators. They are oil soluble, which means they work deeper in your pores, helping to target blackheads and reduce the bacteria that can lead to breakouts. Use AM or PM and protect your skin with SPF during the day. E.G. Beta Hydroxy Acid


HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS? 

Products can take up to six weeks to show full results, due to the time it takes for your skin cells to turnover and the results of any products to reach the surface. Consistency is key, so apply regularly even if you’re not seeing the effects straight away. It can be very tempting to increase use of some products to try and see quicker results, don't overdo it though. More is not necessarily more, and overuse can cause irritation and sensitivity.

Not for me

I have combination skin and I tried using this at night and woke up with my skin peeling, I still tried to make it work by just putting it on my blemishes and still made them peel but not go away I really wanted this to work but I guess my skin is too sensitive for it to be worn for a long time. 2 stars because I will be using it as a wash off treatment.

The INKEY List UK

Hey Ashley! Thank you for your feedback. With BHA, we recommend to use 2-3 times a week to begin with, to ensure your skin can adjust. Also, this one is oil soluble, so requires your skin to be hydrated to ensure that it does not dry the skin out. We would recommend to ensure you are applying a heavy duty moisturiser afterwards, or even following with an oil such as Squalane after your moisturiser. Please do send over a message to our askINKEY team if you'd like anymore advice 🖤

Like it!

Works like a charm! Face seems clear and not so many breakouts anymore. Tried a few spots on other parts of

body and can see changes overnight already.

Amazing product!!

I have extremely large pores and this is the only product I’ve ever used that has helped to reduce them. I’ve bought so many bottles of this stuff. Great value for money too.

Amazing!

I love the lack of any fragrance whatsoever and the initial slip when apply feels great. Dries down quickly. Has helped with blemishes.
