All about acids in skincare / Todo sobre ácidos en skincare (imágenes)

What does a chemical peel do? Deep chemical peel Treatment of hyperpigmentation and other skin discolorations Facial rejuvenation Unclogging pores Acne removal Reduce the depth of wrinkles or acne scars Lighten skin tone Improve the absorption of other skin care products AHA´S They are a group of acids that are found naturally, among others, in fruit, milk and sugar cane. AHAs are exfoliants to varying degrees, with glycolic acid being the most potent of the bunch. Mature skin: AHAs help increase skin cell renewal, helping to smooth scars and wrinkles and even out pigmentation. Dry skin: Lactic acid is better suited to dry skin, as it binds well to skin moisture. Sensitive skin: Mandelic acid is also in this group, which is ideal for a somewhat more sensitive skin type or with a tendency to acne due to its anti-inflammatory effect. BHA S They are a group of acids mainly made up of salicylic acid in skin care. It is found naturally in the white willow tree (salix alba). Oily skin: BHA is fat-soluble and has anti-inflammatory properties, making it great for oily skin, clogged pores, or inflamed acne. Salicylic acid lowers the pores and dissolves excess sebum. Mature skin: BHA increases cell renewal, which works great on fine lines, wrinkles, and sun damage. PHAs They have larger molecules than AHAs, which means that they penetrate the skin more slowly and therefore do not exfoliate as strongly as AHAs and BHAs. PHAs also lock in moisture in the skin and act as antioxidants. Some examples of PHAs in skin care are gluconolactone and lactobionic acid. Sensitive and dry skin: These mild acids are excellent for all types of sensitive and dry skin, such as eczema or rosacea. Mature skin: Its antioxidant benefits will help protect skin's collagen against degradation. IG : @asteria__beauty
