Acid exfoliators – Why you should include them in your skincare

 

In the skincare world using acid exfoliators on your face every day is pretty commonplace!  Skincare acid exfoliants are actually very gentle and great for many skin issues from revealing brightness to calming blemishes.

 

You’ve probably heard of hydrating hyaluronic acid, it occurs naturally in the skin.  This clever molecule bonds to water resulting in cells and skin that look plump and hydrated.

 

Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) are exfoliating acids such as citric acid, lactic acid and mandelic acid.  They are a much better alternative to scrubs, as the acids break the bonds that anchor dead cells to the skin’s surface.  Removing dead skin cells results in a brighter, smoother, newer skin and gets rid of dry, rough skin that can hang around too long and make your complexion look dull.

 

Salicylic Acid is the one and only Beta Hydroxy Acid or BHA.  It exfoliates by dissolving the bonds that hold the dead skin cells to the surface, but salicylic’s superpower is that it is oil soluble!  Therefore this acid can deep clean the pores and exfoliate where it’s needed most.  Ideal for targeting blackheads, visible pores and for keeping blemishes at bay.

 

L-Ascorbic acid, also known as vitamin C is a popular skincare ingredient and is an amazing antioxidant.  It is a good choice for those looking for a smooth, even, glowing complexion.  But, it can be very unstable, so choose your product wisely.
