Skincare enthusiasts and beauty addicts have long embraced and actively used skincare products containing acids. Now, the path to smooth and radiant skin lies through peels with super acids. Let’s delve into what AHA and BHA acids are and which products we recommend taking a closer look at.
AHA acids, also known as alpha-hydroxy acids, work on the skin’s surface, gently dissolving the bonds between dead skin cells, making it easier to remove them and promoting the formation of new, youthful cells. AHA acids are water-soluble and don’t penetrate deeply into the skin. Nevertheless, they have the power to tackle fine lines, acne scars, and pigmentation. In other words, they’re like a magic wand for all skin types. The most famous AHA acid is glycolic acid.
The next level is BHA, or beta-hydroxy acid, and there's only one - salicylic acid. Unlike AHA, BHA dissolves in oil, penetrating beneath the skin's surface, reducing its oiliness, and targeting excess sebum in the pores. If you have problem-prone skin and haven't tried BHA acid yet, it's high time to start.
The next step is to understand how to incorporate acids into your skincare routine. Today, there are many products you can use daily, but if you're new to acids, introducing them gradually into your skincare routine is advisable.
