Acids for Your Skin Concerns

Dry Skin: Lactic Acid – This acid helps your skin look young in two ways. First lactic acid helps to slough away surface dry skin. Second, it acts as a humectant, which means it pulls water into the skin and holds it there, making skin look fresh and young.

Wrinkles: Glycolic Acid – This wrinkle fighting acid is an exfoliator that safely removes the outer layer of dead skin cells so that plump new skin cells can rise to the surface. Glycolic acid helps stimulate the growth of collagen, which is responsible for the skin’s elasticity and which breaks down with aging. Glycolic acid can help smooth out fine lines and diminish the appearance of wrinkles.

Acne: Salicylic Acid – This acid reduces shedding of cells inside the of follicles and helps to loosen dry, scaly skin. This helps break down thick layers of dead skin cells that can block follicles and lead to acne.
