Sour equals beautiful, tingling skin! Fruit acids improve the complexion, as well as having a regenerative, moisturising effect on the skin. Let me introduce these products to you and tell you which skin types they’re suited to. Hi everybody, we’re often asked about the effect of fruit acids and why we use them in our products. I’ve brought along a skin model to show you – it allows me to explain the effects very clearly. Fruit acids are also known as AHA, which stands for Alpha Hydroxy Acids. These can be natural fruit acids, or a synthetic fruit acid such as glycolic acid. We use both types in our products. One of things they do is regenerate the skin’s outermost layer, the epidermis. This means that they promote cell regeneration, boost hygroscopic capacity, smooth the skin’s surface and improve the complexion, and, when used long-term, stimulate collagen and elastin synthesis in the dermis, the layer of skin below the epidermis. The skin becomes toned and more supple as a result. If you’re unfamiliar with fruit acids and are using them for the first time, you may well feel an activating, tingling sensation. This is no cause for alarm! This tingling sensation is completely normal, and will recede as your skin grows accustomed to the fruit acids. The first product I’d like to show you is AHA Effects plus C. This is a 2-in-1 product containing 8% glycolic acid and vitamin C as an adjuvant. At the same time, it has a very low pH value of 3.2, i.e. the protective acid mantle is boosted, the complexion is improved, fine wrinkles are reduced and the skin becomes suppler and more toned. You should only use fruit acids and AHA products at night in order to support skin regeneration, so we’ve printed a moon on the packaging as a little reminder for you. The second product is our AHA Body and Face Lotion. This is a fruit acid lotion with 10% glycolic acid. It’s suitable for both your face and body. And you can also use it on any rough skin on your upper arms and thighs, as well as to reduce dryness and blemishes. AHA Body and Face Lotion is also designed for use at night, which is why the moon is printed on the packaging. And it’s wonderful gel formulation ensures that it is quickly absorbed and easy to apply, and absolutely ideal for night time use. I’d highly recommend that you give the two AHA products a try yourselves! Your nearest pharmacy stocks them, or you can order the products there. And if you have any other questions about AHA, then feel free to write them in the comments section. See you soon.
