AHA/BHA difference

Alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) and beta hydroxy acids (BHA) are similar because they weaken "cellular glue" to exfoliate upper layers of dead skin cells...but how are they different?



THINK B FOR BLEMISH BUSTING


Beta hydroxy acid, derived from willow bark, is oil- soluble and decongests clogged pores, reduces excess sebum, and helps reduce inflammation.



THINK A FOR ANTI-AGING


Alpha hydroxy acid, derived from milk or certain fruits, is water soluble, encourages collagen, minimizes lines and wrinkles, and boosts radiance.
