Alpha Hydroxy Acids- AHA

Alpha Hydroxy Acids

Many of you have heard about AHAs, that they are the solution to dark spots, wrinkles, dehydration and lack of skin luminosity...

In this article I will try to explain the benefits of these acids for the skin, their origin, and the different types of acids that can be found in the wide range of existing cosmetics and how to use them.

AHAs are ingredients of natural origin, we will find them in scrubs, facial creams, masks and serums.

Currently, a large part of these AHAs that are used are of synthetic origin, I will not tell you about these. I will focus on naturally occurring AHAs.

Where are they obtained from?

There are several types of AHAs:

-Lactic acid is obtained from milk.

-glycolic acid is obtained from sugar cane.

-citric acid is obtained from citrus fruits.

-Malic acid is obtained from apples.

-mandelic acid is obtained from almonds.

-tartaric acid is obtained from grapes.

What do they do?

The skin has an incredible capacity to renew itself by eliminating dead cells, this capacity is reduced over time, with excessive exposure to the sun and without photoprotection, taking certain photosensitizing medications, natural aging of the skin, oxidation among other factors, this leads to the appearance of wrinkles, spots, lack of elasticity and firmness of the skin, lack of luminosity, dryness and other imperfections that appear with advancing age.

This is where AHAs come into play, these acids have a magnificent ability to exfoliate (or also called peeling effect) the outermost layers of the skin, favoring the elimination of dead cells, this translates into cell renewal of the layers more external, stimulates the production of collagen and elastin improving its elasticity and firmness.

The result is a softer, smoother, more hydrated skin, wrinkles and fine lines will be improved, they can even be eliminated, blemishes will be considerably reduced, the size of open pores decreases, elasticity increases and the firmness of the skin.

In short, the skin recovers a younger, brighter and more radiant appearance.

how are they used?

We will find these acids in different types of products, in facial creams, serums, masks, ampoules and facial scrubs.

It is very important to be advised by a professional, your dermatologist or pharmacist, each skin responds in one way or another, be very careful in the case of sensitive and reactive skin, skin with rosacea or acne-prone or atopic skin.

But in general terms they are safe products, which can be used with complete peace of mind.

The use of AHA concentrates at night is recommended as a night treatment, and in the morning it is essential to use photoprotection.

When applying these products, you may notice a slight itching and redness of the skin, but these are temporary.

Follow the guidelines indicated for each product and suspend the application in case of continued irritation.
