aha mask de-konstructed
Alpha-hydroxy acids such as malic acid (from apples and grapes), and glycolic acid (from sugar cane) are found in nature. Here at skoah however, they are used as exfoliants to slough off dead skin cells and reveal a glow-ah that’s been hiding underneath! Staring at the list of ingredients on the back of packaging, these words can sometimes be daunting (can we say tunnel vision?), and too often we find ourselves asking the questions: how do these simply powerful ingredients work, and where do we find them?
Well, I’ve decided it’s time to give you the 20/20!
Lets begin with which specific skoah goodies contain these exceptional exfoliants? Malic acid which is found in glow tonik is great for people with sensitive skin, and a busy schedule. Malic acid has a larger molecular size than glycolic acid enabling us to achieve a slower, much gentler exfoliation! It also helps to even skin tone, reduce the signs of age spots, tighten and minimize pore size, reduce or erase the signs of fine lines and wrinkles, thicken and firm the skin and can help to drastically reduce the symptoms of rosacea (facial redness).
Found in our acclaimed aha mask, glycolic acid, a delectable treat our skin care workouts would just not be the same! The aha has a 1% glycolic index, while in facial we get a little extra minty feeling with a 2% glycolic index aha. What does this mean? It means dead skin cells will essentially become un-glued from each other, melting off and hyping up your skins metabolism! This action will keep your skin looking young, and glowing without having to get a dermatologists office for a chemical peel done every other week!
Why does incorporating glycolic acid into your regular regime, 2 to 3 times a week for touchably soft, noticeably smooth komplection?
Glycolic acid from the sugar cane plant has a smaller molecular size than malic acid so it is able to penetrate into our skin further, and is great for people who don’t experience sensitive skin. Since the glycolic acid is in our aha mask, it’s great for anyone who is looking for a simple, and effortless skin kare regimen.
So the next time you go to exfoliate your skin, spare your fruits a loving glance. After all, it’s them we have to thank for keeping us looking young and fresh!
