The main task of AHA / BHA acids is to gently exfoliate dead skin cells
ANA (alpha hydroxy acid) are subdivided into these types:
✅ glycolic acid (sugar cane) - works great for pigmentation and freckles
✅ lactic acid (sour milk) - controls the lipid balance of the skin, eliminates flaking, feeling of dryness and tightness of the skin
✅ Malic acid (apples) - has a pronounced anti-inflammatory effect
✅ Tartaric acid (grape) - has antioxidant activity, smoothes fine wrinkles
BHA (Beta Hydroxy Acid) - Produced exclusively from willow bark
The principle of the work is based on the fact that they weaken the bonds in the stratum corneum of the epidermis, due to which the cells are exfoliated, and smooth and delicate skin remains on the surface.
If you do use products with these ingredients, I advise you to use the highest protection sunscreen.
