AHA: What it is and how it helps skin

Alpha Hydroxy Acids or AHAs are a group of naturally occurring chemical compounds.

AHAs are derived from animal or plant products (such as fruits and milk), and are found in a lot of skincare products.

AHA Skin Benefits include:

  • Increased collagen production
  • Exfoliation
  • Reducing wrinkles and fine lines
  • Lightening hyperpigmentation

Alpha hydroxy acids usually do not cause any major skin issues. However, if you are using them for the first time, you may experience issues such as:

  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Itching
  • Burning sensation

The key to using AHA’s properly is to opt for a gentle solution. If you experience any irritation, it is likely that your skin is too sensitive or that the concentration of AHA is your skincare solution is a little too high.
