AHA stands for alpha hydroxy acid (fruit acid). But how can this acid give dry and dull skin glow again?
We once again asked our experts.
Basically, it is important to know that our young skin renews itself on average every 28 days. However, as we age, this skin renewal cycle becomes longer. The skin cells gradually migrate to the surface of the skin layer, where they ultimately die. It is precisely these dying cells that give your skin a dull, rough and flaky complexion - sometimes even with calluses. Due to UV radiation, the latter occurs especially after summer and at the same time leads to irregular pigmentation and uneven texture.
Glycolic acid, the most effective form of all AHAs, gently removes dead skin cells, refreshes the skin structure and stimulates the skin's own cell renewal. Pores are visibly refined and pigment spots and skin tone irregularities are reduced. In addition, an AHA peel helps to hydrate your skin as the skin barrier is strengthened by the fruit acid. This means the skin loses less water and can retain more moisture. This ensures a smooth, fresh complexion and gives your skin back its natural radiance.
