It seems like with each new product released these days, there’s a hot new skin care ingredient just waiting to be turned into the latest craze. When it comes to the tried and true method and not the “latest craze,” Acids always prevail. If you’re not familiar with the use of various acids as skin care treatments, then the thought alone of putting acid on your face can be terrifying. It sounds abrasive, irritating, and potentially scarring. At least that’s what we used to think!
These incredibly useful acids are nothing of the sort. They have a wide variety of skin care benefits that go beyond simple moisturizing or blemish-fighting properties and can make a huge difference. Whatever your skin concern, there’s a highly effective acid out there to get you one step closer to perfect skin.
Here are the most desired reasons for using acids and their results:
The best known acid in skin care is Salicylic Acid. It is one of the most common ingredients
used in over-the-counter spot treatments and acne preventative care. Also known as beta-hydroxy acid, or BHA, salicylic acid gently exfoliates the upper layers of the skin to remove dead skin cells and penetrates your pores to break up the oil and congestion responsible for blemishes. It’s one of the
least irritating acids. It actually has a significant soothing and anti-inflammatory effect. Salicylic Acid doesn’t cause the same sun sensitivity that the alpha-hydroxy acids cause. If you use salicylic acid regularly, it will eliminate current breakouts and reduce the likelihood of future breakouts!
Glycolic, Lactic and Citric acids are all members of the alpha-hydroxy family. They target many signs of aging, from fine lines and dark spots to adult acne and enlarged pores, and help to visually smooth and firm the texture of the skin. Glycolic and Lactic Acids minimize the appearance of fine lines, scars, wrinkles and gently brightens the skin to help repair symptoms of sun damage, like dark spots and fine lines. They also play a huge role in your skin’s production of collagen which breaks down and causes wrinkles as you age.
Hyaluronic Acid exists naturally in the human body to cushion and lubricate joints and tissue and is found in abundance in young, supple skin. Aging, along with other variables like diet and smoking, reduces the body’s natural supply of hyaluronic acid, which leads to dryness and loss of elasticity, which in turn results in wrinkling and signs of aging. Hyaluronic acid is a natural humectant, can
be applied topically in serums and creams for maximized hydration, or injected as in the case of Restylane to plump the skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. My sister even gets Hyaluronic Acid injected into her spine to help relieve the pain….ouch! Every skin type can benefit from the addition of a hyaluronic acid product. It increases your skin’s ability to absorb, which will allow your expensive skin care creams and serums to be more effective.
The bottom line is, you can’t go wrong using acids on your skin. As a matter of fact, I not only use them on my face, but I also use them on my neck, decolletage, forearms and the backs of my hands. I guess you can say I take a bath with them! The Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Medi-Spa Peel makes it easy to apply everywhere you need it!
