Day 8 Advent Reveal: Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant

Day 8 in the Beauty Expert 12 Days of Christmas Advent Calendar brings you a luxury skin treat in form of Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant. A liquid acid exfoliant, this product works hard to renew skin and minimize pores – giving you that just ‘got up look’ appearance any time of day.

How does it work?

This leave-on exfoliant absorbs quickly into the skin’s surface to slough dead skin cells, which can make the skin appear dull. Lightweight in texture, this super potent exfoliant harnesses the use of Salicylic Acid to increase collagen production and the appearance of wrinkles.

Loved by bloggers and editorial bigshots at the likes of Vogue, this no-nonsense product does exactly what it says on the tin. It effectively gently exfoliates, de-gunks pores, smooths skin and increases radiance and clarity of the skin.

What is BHA?

If you’re not an expert on exfoliation, BHA (or beta-hydroxy acids) are chemical exfoliants which are much gentler on the skin than their scrub counterparts. Unlike AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) BHA molecules are oil-soluble, meaning they can penetrate much more deeply into the skin. This makes a BHA exfoliant much more likely to remove dead skin cells that can contribute to dull skin and black heads.

Whilst BHA’s are expert at removing dead skin cells they are also soothing and anti-inflammatory which won’t cause skin to get angry and agitated.
