The Ultimate Guide to The Ordinary AHA/BHA Peel: Before and After Results

Welcome, skincare junkies! Today, we’re going to talk about an amazing exfoliating solution that can transform your skin within minutes. Yes, we are talking about the Ordinary AHA/BHA Peel.

If you’re not familiar with chemical exfoliation, you’re in for a treat. Unlike physical exfoliants such as scrubs or brushes, which can be harsh on your skin, chemical exfoliants gently dissolve the dead skin cells, revealing brighter, smoother, and younger-looking skin.

The Ordinary AHA/BHA Peel is a potent blend of Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) and Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHA) that unclogs pores, reduces fine lines, evens out skin tone, and fades dark spots. The AHA/BHA combination is also excellent for treating acne-prone skin since it removes the gunk and debris that clogs your pores, leading to pimples and blackheads.

Before we jump into the before and after of using the Ordinary AHA/BHA Peel let’s understand what AHA and BHA are and how they work.

Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) are water-soluble acids that work on the surface of the skin. They dissolve the glue that holds dead skin cells together, causing the cells to shed, revealing fresher skin underneath. AHA is excellent for dry, dull, or sun-damaged skin as it improves skin texture and radiance.

Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHA), on the other hand, are oil-soluble acids that penetrate deep into the pores, removing excess oil, and unclogging them. BHA is ideal for oily or acne-prone skin as it reduces blackheads and whiteheads, and prevents acne breakouts.

Now, let’s talk about incorporating the Ordinary AHA/BHA Peel into your skincare routine.

First, start by cleansing your face with a gentle cleanser such as the CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser. Pat your face dry with a clean towel.

Next, shake the bottle of the Ordinary AHA/BHA Peel before use. Saturate a cotton pad with the solution and apply it to your face, avoiding the eye area. Leave it on for 10 minutes, and then rinse it off with lukewarm water.

After using the peel, your skin may feel slightly tingly, which is normal. However, if you experience any burning, itching, or redness, wash it off immediately.

It’s essential to follow up with a gentle, hydrating moisturizer such as the Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream. You can also use a hydrating serum such as the Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 from the Ordinary to lock in moisture and restore your skin’s barrier.

Using the Ordinary AHA/BHA Peel once a week is enough to see significant improvement in your skin’s texture, tone, and clarity. However, if you have sensitive skin, it’s best to patch test before using the solution all over your face.

In conclusion, the Ordinary AHA/BHA Peel is a game-changer for anyone looking for a quick fix to improve their skin’s appearance. By incorporating this exfoliating solution in your skincare routine, you’ll see a significant decrease in fine lines, dark spots, and acne breakouts.

Remember, always wear sunscreen while using any exfoliant and limit your sun exposure as much as possible.

So, what are you waiting for? Say hello to brighter, smoother, and younger-looking skin with the Ordinary AHA/BHA Peel.
