The face, like fruit, needs its skin peeled back to reveal juicier, plumper, more appealing goods everyone wants their lips on.
Both Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) and Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) work to break apart the uppermost layer of skin. This facilitates the removal of dead and damaged surface cells and encourages the growth of the newer, healthier skin beneath. The AHA and BHA Peels are formulated to “peel away” the fine lines, wrinkles and uneven pigmentation associated with aging and malnourished skin. Its also used to treat acne – the chemicals work to unclog hair follicles and counteract the overproduction of oils. The main difference between alpha and beta hydroxy acids stems from the fact that AHAs are water soluble and BHAs are lipid (oil) soluble. This means that AHAs are more effective at exfoliating damaged, dry skin while BHAs are better able to penetrate oily, blemished skin and pores.
