What makes this product unique?
RESIST Weightless Body Treatment is truly a one-of-a-kind product! This anti-aging body lotion contains an effective amount of salicylic acid (BHA) formulated at a pH range (3.5-3.9) that allows the BHA to have superior exfoliating properties. As a result, it works to soften rough, bumpy areas, ease dryness, help clear breakouts from the neck down, stimulate collagen production and banish dullness for improved skin tone.
This lightweight, though exceptionally moisturizing, body lotion with 2% BHA is a completely non-abrasive, gentle way to shed built-up layers of dead skin, resulting in unbelievably smooth younger-looking skin from the neck down. It not only beautifully hydrates skin and softens dryness, but also significantly improves the appearance of hard clogged pores on the arms and legs.
Plus, this silky, lightweight moisturizer sets to a soft matte finish and is packed with proven antioxidants and potent anti-irritants to keep skin youthful and healthy. This specialized body product will reveal younger-looking skin with a renewed firmness, refined texture and fewer discolorations from sun damage.
What does it do?
RESIST Weightless Body Treatment 2% BHA works from the first application to visibly make rough, dry skin a thing of the past, significantly diminishing clogged hard pores on the arms and legs. Ongoing use banishes dullness and promotes resilient skin that’s touchably soft and ultimately smooth.
Who is this product for?
RESIST Weightless Body Treatment is great for anyone who is prone to breakouts or struggling with signs of aging anywhere on their body. It is also extremely effective at relieving red bumps and rough areas on the body (keratosis pilaris). This silky body lotion also works to improve skin tone and texture, both of which contribute to a more youthful look.
NOTE: Those allergic to aspirin (acetylsalicylate) should not use products containing salicylic acid (beta hydroxy acid).

When properly formulated, both AHAs and BHA are brilliant options for exfoliating the surface of skin. You do not need to use both, but some people like alternating. Both AHA and BHA work to reduce wrinkles, stimulate collagen, and firm skin but each has its special qualities you'll want to consider when deciding which one to use: AHAs are preferred for sun-damaged and dry skin because they exfoliate on the surface of skin and have the added benefit of also improving moisture content. BHA is preferred for oily, acne-prone skin and for treating blackheads and white bumps because BHA can get through the oil that's clogging your pores, normalizing the lining of the misshapen pore that contributes to acne. BHA has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial action. Those are two more reasons to use a BHA exfoliant if you have acne or sensitive, reddened skin. Both AHA and BHA work to fight keratosis pilaris ("chicken skin") but BHA has the advantage due to its ability to penetrate the pore lining where these raised, red bumps begin. If your skin is sun-damaged and you're also struggling with acne or clogged pores, add a BHA product to your routine.How does RESIST Weightless Body Treatment with 2% BHA differ from the Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Exfoliant?
The primary difference is with the base formula. The lotion base of Weightless Body Treatment with 2% BHA is silky and lightweight yet hydrating, and it contains several anti-aging ingredients to help skin from the neck down look and act younger. Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid, Gel, and 2% Beta Hydroxy Acid Lotion contains the same percentage of salicylic acid, but in different bases designed to work with other facial-care products.Can I use RESIST Weightless Body Treatment with 2% BHA on my face?
Yes. In fact, some skin types may prefer the texture of RESIST Weightless Body Treatment with 2% BHA for facial use.I am using Renova/Retin-A on sun-damaged body skin. Is it OK to use this with RESIST Weightless Body Treatment with 2% BHA?
There is no reason not to try and see if this works for you and you can always ask the physician who gave you the prescription their opinion. Renova and Retin-A have a completely different benefit for skin than BHA does but both are excellent for anti-aging skincare. BHA exfoliates built up dead skin cells on the surface of skin and in the pore, while the active ingredient in Retin-A and Renova is a cell communicating ingredient that improves the way skin cells are made in the lower layers of skin.
