Younger Skin with Acids

Acid is a smart choice to exfoliate your skin. Acids lift away dead cells and reveal fresh, undamaged skin. Unlike scrubs, acids exfoliate uniformly and they are less likely to irritate your skin. The key is not to overdo and overuse acids in your skin care routine. You should have just one acid product at home.

Glycolic acid is the smallest molecule, so it penetrates deepest. Derived from sugar, it’s the most effective but as a greater potential to irritate.

Latic acid, made from sour milk, is the second-smallest molecule. It’s gentler than glycolic and draws moisture to the skin as it removes dead cells, so it hydrating too.

Fruit acids, such as citric (from lemon and grapefruit) and malic (from apples) are larger compounds that work on the uppermost layer of the skin. They are often combined with glycolic and lactic acids for faster result.

Salicylic acid, a beta hydroxy acid, is ideal for treating acne. It penetrates and unclogs oily pores.

Trichloroacetic acid (or TCA) is used by doctors for intense in-office peels that can cause deep (and ugly) peeling before transforming skin.

Do acids do anything in a cleanser?

Cleansers with AHAs can smooth skin a little, but not enough to pay a premium for them. You’re better washing off your skin with a basic, gentle cleanser, then use an AHA cream or serum. If you have acne-prone skin, a salicylic acid cleanser is worth buying. Salicylic acid will seek for oily, clogged pores and clearing them, even when you just leave it on your skin for a minute.

Hyaluronic Acid, Nature’s Best Moisturizer

23958039_sHave you been struggling to combat dry skin, only to walk away from every single product with the overall feeling that all it did was turn your face into a greasy mess?

Believe it or not, that is the problem that most people have with traditional skin care products. What’s worse is that these chemical laden products also contain alcohols, which serve to dry out the skin, meaning that many others become dependent on them in an attempt to stop dryness and burning. If you are sick of being trapped in that cycle, it is time that you turn to a product that works- products with high concentration of hyaluronic acid. Continue reading
