Get Glowing… 

Two words - chemical exfoliators - The key to youthful and glowing skin in just one swipe. 
They come in the form of skin peels, pads, and lotions, which impact the deeper layers. Chemical exfoliators have low percentages of acids which are easy on the skin and help get rid of dead skin cells from your face and body to make way for newer cells. But they do more than that—chemical exfoliators help brighten and firm skin. They are categorized into two—alpha hydroxyl acids (AHAs), which are derived from fruits, milk and sugar and beta hydroxy acids (BHAs), which come from willow bark. 

Here’s what you should look for in the label: 

For aging skin… 

Ageing-skin

Glycolic acid (AHA) works for those who have wrinkles and pigmentation. It’s derived from plants like sugarcane and is composed of lighter molecules and has the ability to work its way deep into the skin. Therefore it is effective in reducing lines, pores, and pigmentation - the three main signs of aging. It is recommended to begin with creams, lotions or peels with a lower concentration and gradually increase the dose. Do a patch test under your chin or on the back of your ear before you begin using chemical exfoliants on your face.

 

For dry skin… 

Unlike other acids that exfoliate, hyaluronic acid (AHA) has moisturizing properties. It also goes by hyaluronan or hyaluronate on the label. It’s a humectant which means that it has a natural ability to lock in water giving the skin a hydrated and fuller look. Its primary function is to draw water molecules from the deeper layers of the skin, and a little also from the surroundings to hydrate the surface of the skin.

Since the visible signs of aging i.e. facial lines are caused due to lack of moisture on the skin’s surface, humectants like Hyaluronic acid work well to prevent and treat facial lines.

For sensitive skin…

Milk-based-AHALactic acid another AHA, it is derived from milk. It’s one of the mildest acids and works just on the surface of the skin, making it excellent for those with delicate skin.  Lactic acid derivatives are also in the form of Arbutin, that tackle pigmentation problems by reducing and controlling melanin production. Milk proteins work well to brighten the skin complexion.

 

 

For acne prone skin…

Salicylic acid, a BHA does the best job when it comes to controlling large pores and zapping away blackheads. It’s a staple when it comes to fighting acne as it has a triple ability to exfoliate, get rid of bacteria that cause breakouts and heal the skin. Another way to incorporate Salicylic acid for acne-prone skin is to use a Salicylic acid facewash or cleanser. It works as a blessing to help melt and remove excessive sebum and pollutants.

Overlying tip for all chemical exfoliators

Use the creams, lotions or serums only once a week, overnight and apply sunscreen during the day as chemical exfoliators make your skin more susceptible to sunburn.
