Alpha Hydroxy Acids

Alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) are a group of plant and animal-derived acids used in a variety of skincare products that are known to

- Improve skin texture and tone
- Smooth fine lines and wrinkles
- Treat and prevent acne
- Exfoliate and promote collagen production
- Improve and brighten the skin's condition overall

The FDA says that the use of AHAs is safe in skincare with the warning that you have to be careful to wear sunscreen every day you use a product with AHAs, and for a week after you stop using them, as they increase your sensitivity to the sun.
