Why use AHA/BHA :
Many shy away from the use of AHA’s (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) and BHA’s (Beta Hydroxy Acid) due to bad experiences with poorly formulated skin care products. But the truth is, these acids can benefit the skin in many ways if respected and incorporated properly.
AHA’s and BHA’s like lactic, glycolic, and salicylic acid stimulate cellular activity and reveal youthful looking skin out from under dead skin cells. Due to their small molecular size, these acids act rapidly once on the skin, yielding positive dermal results after only a few applications. By releasing the “intracellular glue” holding skin cells together, these gentle acids allow the newly released dead cells to slugs off revealing a soft, smooth epidermis. This activity catalyzes cellular turnover-rates, which naturally slows as we age. By adding an acid-based product into daily routine can improve the appearance of aging and sun damages skin in a number of ways:
- Promote the cycle of cell turnover (AKA skin shedding) and re-growth
- Increase collagen production
- Improve elasticity and firmness
- Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Improve skin texture
- Reveal smoother, brighter, suppler skin with less pigmentation and
- fewer irregularities
- Increase the production of dermal matrix compounds
