Beta Hydroxy Acid
Beta hydroxy acids are chemical exfoliants that are greatly beneficial. Salicylic acid and betaine salicylate are popular BHAs because they are anti-inflammatory and oil-loving. They penetrate deeply and empty pores of dead skin cells and excess oil.
Benefits: BHA’s are effective because they do more than just banish zits from the face—they can help minimize wrinkles, minimize large pores, and brighten skin.
Skin Types: These chemical exfoliants are great for acne prone skin as well as for those who have sensitive skin and want to exfoliate, rather than use physical scrubs.
