AHAs, what are they?
WHAT IS IN IT:
- lactic acid from tomato juice
- glycolic acid from sugar cane juice
- citric acid from lemons , pineapples, oranges, etc
- malic acid from apples
- tartaric acid from grapes and wine
WHY IS IT GOOD FOR ME? AHA weaken bonds that hold dead skin together resulting in a fresher smoother and younger looking skin . It also mean that our serum and moisturizer will be more efficiently absorbed They are also used to help with conditions like acne, photodamage , hyperpigmentation .
WHO IS IT FOR: ideal for mature skin, dull skin, acne-prone skin and hyperpigmentation problems . If you have sensible skin remember to patch test it first and make sure the AHA product you buy is combined with other ingredients that are calming and soothing to the skin.
HOW TO USE IT: Daily in low concentrations of up to the 2%and for up to 15% for more intensive , specific treatments
SOME OTHER BENEFITS include a reduction of fine lines and superficial wrinkles, a lightening of surface pigmentation, and a softer, suppler skin with improved hydration. It also helps to normalize the most superficial skin layer reducing its thickness through exfoliation and an ability to activate hyaluronic acid.
You can find AHAs in our super powerful Vitamin C serum, aka brightening serum. This serum contain vitamin C,E, ferulic acid, hyaluronic acid and AHAs. It is so mightily concentrated that you'll just need one drop for your face and neck. I recommend using it after your double cleansing and toner (or facial mist) routine.
