  • Benefits of using glycolic acid on skin: Glycolic acid works by speeding up cell turnover. Its small size allows it to quickly penetrate the top layer of skin and safely dissolve the bonds that hold dull and dead skin cells together. The dead skin cells can then be shed more rapidly than they would on their own, revealing smoother and more radiant skin. As an anti-aging treatment, glycolic acid can boost collagen stores and increase hydration to stave off fine lines and wrinkles. For mature skin, it has been shown to effectively treat photodamage by increasing levels of collagen and hyaluronic acid in the skin.

      AHA (alpha hydroxy acids) commonly used in skin care products are ingredients like citric, lactic, malic, glycolic and tartaric acids:

  • Glycolic acid is the type thatís used most often in anti-aging products because itís able to penetrate the outer layers of skin. It comes from sugar cane and is an excellent exfoliant. It also has antimicrobial properties that help fight acne.
  • Lactic acid is known to be gentler on the skin for people who are more sensitive. Itís made from lactose in milk and is touted for its anti-aging effects.
  • Citric acid is derived from citrus fruits. It helps neutralize the skinís pH levels, which is why itís often used in serums and toners.
  • Tartaric acid is made from grape extracts, and itís often used to improve acne and signs of photoaging.
  • Malic acid comes from apple acids, and itís actually a crossover of AHA and BHA acids.

    Alpha hydroxy acids work to remove built-up dirt and debris that may clog your pores, they can help to improve or even prevent acne. A study published in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science concluded that a 4 percent solution of glycolic acid and lactic acid improved whiteheads and blackheads significantly.

    Research shows that AHAs help increase skin thickness and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. AHA usage can improve skin texture and cell renewal.

    AHAs are often used to reduce sun spots that are caused by UV light exposure. These spots are common on your face, especially your cheeks, nose and forehead, as well as your chest and hands.

    The discoloration, or dark patches, are improved by alpha hydroxy acids because they promote skin cell turnover, allowing for new, evenly pigmented skin cells to come to the skinís surface.

    Because AHAs work to exfoliate the skin and remove old skin cells and collagen fibers, they promote the production of new protein-rich fibers that improve skin appearance. A study published in the Journal of Dermatology found that glycolic, lactic and citric acid use increased collagen production in the upper layer of skin.

    A big benefit of alpha hydroxy acids is their ability to remove the outer layer of dead skin, leaving you with a smoother, more even-toned appearance. By exfoliating old skin cells, AHAs make way for new skin cell turnover and stimulate the production of collagen, a protein thatís naturally diminished with age.

    Recommended for wrinkle smoothing and prevention, and for the treatment of sun damaged skin. Shea butter is a particularly effective moisturizer because contains so many fatty acids, which are needed to retain skin moisture and elasticity. Its soft, butter-like texture melts readily into the skin. African healers have used Shea butter for thousands of years as the ideal treatment for dry or aging skin. Its high content of non-saponifiable fatty acids gives it the ability to moisturize and retain the elasticity of the skin. Shea butter also protects the skin against the damaging effects of the sun while repairing cellular degeneration.

    Shea butter protects the skin from both environmental and free-radical damage. It contains vitamins A and E and has demonstrated both antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. Has been used to help heal burns, sores, scars, dermatitis, psoriasis, dandruff, and stretch marks. It may also help diminish wrinkles by moisturizing the skin, promoting cell renewal, and increasing circulation. Shea butter also contains cinnamic acid, a substance that helps protect the skin from harmful UV rays.
