<strong>Can I use the 10% Azelaic Acid Booster if I have acne?</strong>
<br>Yes, azelaic acid is suitable even for those with acne-prone skin when used in combination with our CLEAR anti-acne collection.
<strong>Is azelaic acid an exfoliant?</strong>
<br>Azelaic acid isn't strictly an exfoliant in the same way an AHA or BHA product is. While it does offer mild exfoliating effects, it’s not intended to take the place of your normal exfoliant step. Instead, azelaic acid’s robust benefits complement what an AHA or BHA exfoliant can do for smoother, calmer skin with fewer blemish marks.
<strong>Is azelaic acid good for sensitive skin?</strong>
<br>For sensitive skin, we recommend testing azelaic acid on a small area where you have sensitivity and seeing how your unique skin type responds.
<strong>What does azelaic acid do?</strong>
<br>Azelaic acid is really good at keeping skin healthy because it blocks things that can cause aggravation. It's a unique antioxidant, and its multi-pronged benefits include helping reduce sensitivity and visibly fading marks.
<strong>How long does azelaic acid take to work?</strong>
<br>Azelaic acid works from the first application, with full results visible after 4-12 weeks of consistent daily use. Immediately calmer skin may be noticeable even sooner.
<strong>Is azelaic acid an AHA?</strong>
<br>Azelaic acid is not an AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) nor is it a BHA (beta hydroxy acid). Azelaic acid is classified as a dicarboxylic acid, which offers unique skin-calming properties.
<strong>Does azelaic acid cause purging?</strong>
<br>No, azelaic acid is not known to cause skin purging and is generally well-tolerated due to its gentle, soothing nature. Learn more about skin purging.
<strong>How should azelaic acid be used in a routine?</strong>
<br>Azelaic acid can be used morning and/or night. Use your cleanser, toner and AHA or BHA exfoliant first, then layer your azelaic acid treatment in along with the rest of the products in your routine in order of thinnest to thickest texture. During the day, always finish with SPF 30+.
<strong>Can you apply moisturizer after azelaic acid?</strong>
<br>Yes, you can apply moisturizer after azelaic acid. Another option is to mix azelaic acid directly into your non-SPF moisturizer. This ingredient plays nicely with others — there is no concern of it overpowering or deactivating other superstar actives.
<strong>Can you use azelaic acid every day?</strong>
<br>Yes, you can use azelaic acid every day (up to twice daily). Consistent use is key for best/fastest results.
<strong>What does azelaic acid do for hyperpigmentation?</strong>
<br>Azelaic acid visibly fades areas of hyperpigmentation, including post-breakout marks and uneven tone, by disrupting the pathways that trigger discolorations. Additionally, by calming factors within skin, visible symptoms associated with hyperpigmentation become less noticeable.

Unimaginably quick results

With sensitive skin, I've always been hesitant about introducing new products. The 10% Azelaic Acid Booster, however, has been a pleasant surprise. It's soothing, reduces my redness, and the occasional breakout seems less intimidating. The texture is perfect, neither too thick nor runny, allowing for easy application.

Great booster

Man, I've been down the skincare rabbit hole, and Paula's Choice’s Azelaic Acid is the gem I found! My skin used to look tired and spotty, but not anymore. This booster's like magic but gentle – no harsh vibes. A month in and I’m looking brighter, my zits have taken a backseat, and I swear I look a bit younger. Feels like my skin's been on vacay! If you're looking for that 'just got back from a spa' glow, this is it! 🌟👌

Great results product

City life had my skin acting all sorts of crazy – zits, that annoying redness, and just blah. Then I tried the 10% Azelaic Acid Booster, and dang, it's like my skin had coffee or something! Couple weeks in and my face is all calm, clear, and kind of glowy? Plus, it’s no fuss – just mix it with my regular moisturizer and voilà. If your skin's throwing tantrums, you got to try this. It's the real deal!
