  1. Hello John,

    What do you think of azelaic acid with regard to hyperpigmentation? Should it be used in conjunction with adapalene or bha/ aha, and if yes, what are the rules? Paula’s Choice launched a new product for the European market that promises to reduce brown spots an acne at the same time, what do you think of it?

    • It’s fantastic! I wish those of us in the US could use this ingredient without a prescription. The research behind this ingredient is considerable, and is a worthwhile addition to your routine, depending on your needs and experiences with other ingredients.
