FAQ's Alpha Hydroxy Acid

WHO IS THIS BEST FOR? 

This is best for beginners, once your skin builds up the tolerance you can move up to the stronger acid such as our Glycolic Acid Toner. 


CAN I USE IT WHILE PREGNANT OR BREASTFEEDING? 

We recommend to avoid using exfoliating acids, such as Alpha Hydroxy Acid, when pregnant or breastfeeding. We would also suggest to consult with your doctor to stay on a safe side. 


CAN I USE IT DURING THE DAY? 

We only advise to use our Alpha Hydroxy Acid during your PM routine as it makes your skin sensitive to the sun exposure


HOW TO USE WITH OTHER PRODUCTS:

AHA can be combined with most other products. However, there are a few to be careful with to ensure you don't over exfoliate and sensitize the skin.

It is not recommended to use both AHA and Retinol at the same time, use on different nights if required. Don't mix with other AHAs (Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid). Avoid mixing with Vitamin C products at the same time (Use Vitamin C AM and AHA PM)


ALWAYS WEAR SUNSCREEN WHEN USING AHAS

Due to the exfoliating properties of AHA, and the fact it increases skin renewal. This means the top layer of skin is newer, and potentially more sensitive to sunlight. So we always recommend using in the PM and wearing a broad spectrum sunscreen during the day.


AHAS VS BHAS - WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) are chemical exfoliators. Water-soluble, they work on the surface of your skin, encouraging cell turnover to reveal a brighter, more even complexion. Use in the PM and protect your skin with SPF during the day. Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs) are also chemical exfoliators. They are oil soluble, which means they work deeper in the pores, helping to target blackheads and reduce the bacteria that can lead to breakouts. Use AM or PM and protect your skin with SPF during the day.


HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS? 

Products can take up to six weeks to show full results, due to the time it takes for your skin cells to turnover and the results of any products to reach the surface. Consistency is key, so apply regularly even if you’re not seeing the effects straight away. It can be very tempting to increase use of some products to try and see quicker results, don't overdo it though. More is not necessarily more, and overuse can cause irritation and sensitivity. 


WHAT IS THE PH LEVEL OF THIS PRODUCT?

PH LEVEL: 5.1-5.3

Gentle & Effective

This has really improved my skin texture. I had little bumps by my chin that wouldn’t go away, a few weeks in they are clearing up. It’s very gentle and hasn’t irritated my skin at all.

Bumpy skin where!

This has helped my skin to smooth out tremendously. I use it a lot on the back of my legs to help clear up my keratosis pilaris and it has worked wonders. In a few months with consistency my skin should be completely smooth. You won’t be disappointed if you buy this product.
