What can The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution do for my skin?
It’s a peeling treatment that contains glycolic acid, lactic acid, and salicylic acid. These are chemical exfoliants that work to slough off layers of dead skin cells on the outer layers of the skin and dislodge the stuck buildup hiding beneath the pores. The unique formula targets acne, fine lines, wrinkles, dullness, and uneven skin texture.
You see, exfoliating is key to scoring a flawless complexion. Clogged pores lead to acne, rough skin texture, and dullness. These common issues can be prevented by a weekly purge via a mask or with the daily use of products that contain acid exfoliants.
