Long time no post! Hope all are well and a big "Hey there!" to any newbies and there are quite a few! Hooray for you for finding the bestest place for people with scleroderma. What this community and site doesn't know about scleroderma you could write on the back of a postage stamp.
That's why I have come to ask my question about the ingredients AHA (alpha hydroxy acid also known as glycolic acid), BHA (beta hydroxy acid also known as salicylic acid) and retinol. I'm considering using a range of skincare that uses these ingredients and although I have looked into what each is supposed to do and how, I have no experience of them. As one of the claims is "believed they can prompt the growth of collagen and elastin", I had to come here and ask. I know that when it come to the realm of beauty products, fantasists have a field day, claiming anything and everything to sell a product but like many here, my body is a manic machine when it comes to the overproduction of collagen so I can't take any chances, even though scleroderma has never affected my face. Phew!
Any advice, thoughts, ideas or experience?
That's all folks, have a FAB day and take care.
