I'm trying to educate myself so I can set up a good treatment plan, but the terms are confusing. Is alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) the same as glycolic acid, and beta hydroxy acid (BHA) the same as salicylic acid? If not, what is correct?
Then, the next step - what drugstore-brand toners contain 2 percent BHA, or 8 percent AHA, but not much alcohol? (I'm going to follow the blemish-fighting plan C: gentle foaming cleanser followed by BHA or AHA toner, and then benzoyl peroxide. If the plan works, I should see results within six weeks.)
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
