20 Things to do while your BHA/AHA is Working

One of the most important (and annoying) things of using a chemical exfoiliant, is letting it work its magic for up to 20 or 30 minutes before you apply anything else to your face. Chemical exfoliants need time to work at their preferred pH before being neutralized by water or a moisturizer, but the time length needed for the BHA/AHA to work is controversial. I like to wait 20 minutes just to be safe until definitive answers come about.Β  Some people see this as a deterrent, but I see it as an opportunity to get other things done. (Seriously, I floss more now than I ever have in my life)
