AHAs vs. BHAs? “Acid” sounds like a scary ingredient, but it’s actually a miracle worker when you find the right one. 

AHAs (like glycolic and lactic acids) gently exfoliate the skin, improving texture and helping to diminish the appearance of wrinkles and hyperpigmentation.

BHAs (like salicylic acid) are better for blemish-prone skin, since they can penetrate  oil to help clear clogged pores.
