How to use

Step 3 Exfoliants 1% BHA Sensitive Skin Exfoliant

How to use an exfoliant

Apply once or twice daily after cleansing and toning. Apply a grape-sized amount over the entire face, including the eye area (avoid the lower lash line and eyelids). Do not rinse. For daytime, follow with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater.


If you have a salicylate allergy, check with your physician before using any products that contain salicylic acid.

Here's a step-by-step of your morning & evening skincare application.
Step 1: Cleanser
Wet your face and apply a small amount with gentle, circular motions. Rinse well. To remove heavy makeup, repeat or use with a clean, wet washcloth.
Step 2: Toner
With your fingertips or a cotton pad, gently apply over the face and neck. Do not rinse.
Step 3 Exfoliants
Gently apply with your fingertips or a cotton pad over the face and neck, including the eye area (avoid lash line and eyelids). Do not rinse. Start slowly: Apply every other day and note your skin's response. Then use up to twice daily.
Step 4 Treatments
Dispense a pearl-sized amount to your hand and apply once or twice daily to the face, neck and eye area.
Step 5 Moisturisers
Use a day moisturiser as the last step in your morning skincare routine and apply liberally at least 15 minutes before stepping into sun exposure. As always, it's best to reapply every two hours once the skin has been exposed to direct sunlight. For a night moisturiser, apply a small amount once or twice daily to the face and neck.

FAQ

Most asked

What makes the CALM 1% BHA Sensitive Skin Exfoliant different than other Paula's Choice BHA exfoliants?

While all Paula’s Choice BHA (salicylic acid) products are non-abrasive and exfoliate the skin's surface, the CALM 1% BHA Sensitive Skin Exfoliant was specifically formulated with redness and reactivity in mind. This product not only exfoliates and smooths skin, but it also works to improve signs of sensitivity. It's a great example of an expert multitasker.

What is the difference between the original CALM 1% BHA Lotion Exfoliant and the new CALM 1% BHA Sensitive Skin Exfoliant?

While both contain 1% salicylic acid along with other soothing ingredients, the new CALM 1% BHA Sensitive Skin Exfoliant has a thinner, cream-gel texture that’s more hydrating. It also contains a broader array of soothing ingredients such as northern truffle (mushroom), prickly pear and double the amount of skin-healing allantoin that work together to target the underlying and outward causes of sensitive/reactive skin, while removing dull build-up and decongesting pores.

How often should I use the CALM 1% BHA Sensitive Skin Exfoliant?

It’s best to gradually build up use of a BHA product. Start by using once every other day and then increase usage to once or twice daily based on your skin’s response. Experiment to see what suits your skin best. During the day, always use a moisturiser with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater.

If I use a topical prescription for rosacea, can I also use the CALM 1% BHA Sensitive Skin Exfoliant?

Yes. In fact, the soothing formula of the CALM 1% BHA Sensitive Skin Exfoliant works with any topical prescription medication used for managing symptoms of rosacea. Apply the CALM 1% BHA Sensitive Skin Exfoliant after cleansing and toning and then follow with your night-time moisturiser (or apply as directed by your doctor). It’s also an option to apply your prescription product at night and the 1% BHA during the day. For daytime, be sure to follow with a broad-spectrum sunscreen SPF 30 or greater. If you’re new to salicylic acid, start small with 2-3 times per week and work up to daily application as needed.

If I have sensitive skin, can I use a higher strength BHA?

Which BHA strength you opt to use should be based on your skin type and severity of your concerns. The CALM 1% BHA Sensitive Skin Exfoliant is ideal for extra-sensitive skin and likely will be all you need to improve any surface texture or pore congestion issues you may be experiencing.
