Alpha Hydrox features AHAs or alpha hydroxy acids.
AHAs are natural and are found in foods like citrus fruits, nuts and sour milk.
The AHA used in Alpha Hydrox is glycolic acid and it is made from sugarcane.
AHAs are exfoliates. They remove the top layer of dead skin cells. AHAs work by loosening the glue like bonds that hold dead skin cells to the surface.
Unlike scrubs and Dermabrasion , which also exfoliate, AHAs are gentler and less irritating to the skin. AHAs can be used once or twice a day. A scrub should never be used that much.
Since AHAs can be used so often, they “trick” the skin into thinking it needs to produce new cells. When using AHAs once or twice a day, skin is in a constant state of turnover and renewal. This means the newest healthiest skin is at the surface, not the layer of old dead skin. As a result, AHAs help to even skin tone and texture, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. AHAs make skin feel softer and smoother while keeping it moist and plump.
When using AHAs in the morning or during the day, you should also wear a sunscreen.
