Alpha Hydroxy Acid

A skin-smoothing fruit exfoliator is found in many types and skin care treatment products. Alpha Hydroxy is a general term for fruit acids. These can be in the form of malic, tartaric, lactic acid, glycolic acid. They are derived from natural sources and used to exfoliate the outer layer of skin. These acids help to deep clean and clear up clogged pores making them look smaller and more refined. Being consistent and using Alpha Hydroxy Acids once a week can help brighten dull skin, reduce pore size and keep your skin looking youthful. You can also use them daily as part of a consistent anti-aging skincare routine. Alpha Hydroxy Acids may be contained in many different products, such as in a cleanser, serum or peel. Alpha Hydroxy Acids may also be combined for a more intense treatment.
