What doctors say you need to know about BHAs

When your face feels greasy and your pores become congested, you can remove gunk and control oil by incorporating beta hydroxy acids, or BHAs, into your daily skin care routine. But what exactly are BHAs? And which BHA skin care products should you get?

We asked board-certified dermatologists all about BHAs, their benefits and limitations and how they compare to alpha hydroxy acids, or AHAs. In addition to sharing expert-recommended products, we followed their guidance to gather a few top-rated BHA items that are commonly available.

…if you have sensitive skin and are shopping for BHA products, consider BHA face washes to gently exfoliate without causing dryness, said Michele Farber, MD, a dermatologist at Schweiger Dermatology Group in Philadelphia. Unlike face masks or creams, cleansers don’t stay on your face for an extended time, so you’ll run a lower risk of irritation.
