Why Use Alpha & Beta Hydroxy Acids to Combat Acne and Aging?

Exfoliants are necessary for the skin – they get rid of impurities, remove dead skin cells, allow pores to breathe, and improve overall health of the skin. You might have heard acronyms like AHA and BHA being associated with skincare, but don’t have any idea about what they mean. Rest assured, you aren’t alone – there are many in the same boat! To put it in a nutshell, these are all acids that help to exfoliate skin so new skin cells are generated and natural glow is maintained.

AHA

AHA or Alpha Hydroxy Acids are a group of acids found naturally in milk, sugarcane, fruit, etc. Glycolic acid is the most potent in this category. It helps to stimulate the cell regeneration process, which is perfect for mature skin because the cell renewal process is slower as compared to more youthful skin. Regular exfoliation helps to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, thus combating signs of aging.

BHA

Salicylic acid is the most predominantly used in the BHA, or Beta Hydroxy Acid group. It naturally occurs in the white willow tree and is loaded with anti-inflammatory properties. Being fat soluble, it is great for oily skin with blocked pores and skin inflamed with acne. Salicylic acid works its way deep into the pores and dissolves sebum, which in turn improves the condition of the pores.

Use them to target acne and aging

So why should you use them to control acne and aging? Take a look:

 

  • As you age, the cell turnover slows down, but the AHA and BHA acids boost cell renewal process, so you get younger looking skin.
  • The problem is you can’t reverse aging, but what you can do is minimize the onset of its signs. They do a great job of reducing appearance of lines and wrinkles by firming the skin.
  •  Both acids penetrate deep within the skin and treat pigmentation.
