I always get confused with AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) and BHA (Beta Hydroxy Acids). Today’s tip concerns AHA acids. Skin sheds millions of cells every day.
Factors such as sun damage, dry skin, and skin disorders can slow down the cell shedding process and cause the skin to malfunction.
AHAs can help the situation by exfoliating the excess skin cells that build up on the skin. This causes the skin to look less radiant and uneven.
AHAs work by gently breaking down the glue-like substances in the skin that hold the cells together for longer than normal. This causes the dead cells to shed like they are supposed to.
AHAs cannot penetrate deep into the pores. Therefore, AHAs are used primarily to exfoliate the skin’s upper most layers.
You would use a product with AHA to treat sun damaged skin and other skin concerns, such as dryness, fine lines and wrinkles that affect only the surface of the skin!
The most well-researched and effective forms of AHA are glycolic acid which is found in fruits and vegetables, and lactic acid which is found in milk.
