Alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) are primarily used to exfoliate your skin. Exfoliation refers to a process where the skin cells on the surface shed off and this can help you remove dead skin cells but also makes way for new skin cell generation. You should know that not all AHAs have the same exfoliating power and the amount of exfoliation is determined by the type of AHA you use. As a rule of thumb, the more AHAs contained in a product, the more powerful the exfoliating effects.
AHAs can help you promote collagen production and collagen is a protein-rich fiber that helps keep your skin plump and smooth. You could try Andalou Naturals’ Pumpkin Honey Glycolic Mask.
AHAs are well known for their anti-aging effects, and surface lines are no exception. For you it is so important to remember that AHAs work for surface lines and wrinkles only, not deeper wrinkles.
AHA can help you reduce acne scars, post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), sun damage spots and other skin discolorations and all this is thanks to how AHA speeds up exfoliation at the skin surface level. AHAs with glycolic acid can help break down skin cell accumulation, while products with citric acid can brighten your skin even further.
