AHA’s or alpha-hydroxy acids are acids derived from fruits that work on the upper layer of the skin.

This chemical exfoliant removes dead skin cells, therefore preventing blemishes from popping up but also getting rid of dull skin, inviting in that glow! Exfoliating with naturally derived chemical peels like AHA’s also has a positive effect on hydration levels and promotes cell turnover: a process that decreases with age.

It is important to use your daily SPF when using acids like these, as your skin can get a little more sensitive to UV rays up until 2 weeks after use.
