Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) in Skin Care : a Review

Alpha hydroxy acids are acids used in the production of anti aging facial creams and skin care products. The Alpha Hydroxy acids seem to have an effect and ability to reduce the appearance of line and wrinkles. Some of the most commonly used alpha hydroxy acids are: malic acid, glycolic acid, citric acid (as found in citrus fruits), and mixed fruit acids.

For a thorough anti aging treatment, many women prefer chemical peels. Licensed skin care professionals can administer these chemical peels by using skin care products that contain 20% and 30% concentrations of alpha hydroxy acids. These AHA’s are used in various concentrations in various skin products. Since chemical peels are not everlasting anti aging cures, you will have to return for repeat peels every 3 to 6 months. An unfortunate side effect to chemical peels using alpha hydroxy acids is swelling, redness, and oozing of the skin. According to a study by the US FDA, using skin care products that contain alpha hydroxy acids can make the user more sensitive to the damaging rays of the sun. So these acids are not recommended for use on those with sensitive and damaged skin.

One can buy Alpha hydroxy acids in many skin care products. Many online cosmetics shops are offering skincare lines containing the AHA acids. At the time of review there were various free samples and discount prices available in the shops below (also for UK, Canada and Australia customers). The Alpha hydroxy acid chemical peels are proven to diminish the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines for short periods of time. The use of alpha hydroxy acids is regulated. Below you can find them as AHA Creams and AHA Lotions. (We already had a review on the alpha hydroxy acid gels and moisturizers, we’ll do a review on the alpha hydroxy acid acne creams shortly).

On the negative, the Alpha hydroxy acid products are not recommended in products for those with sensitive skin. Use of alpha hydroxy acids can lead to increased UV sensitivities. Use of an approved sun block is recommended while using a product containing alpha hydroxy acids. Alpha hydroxy acid chemical peels are proven to cause skin irritation, swelling, redness, and soreness.

Alpha hydroxy acids, while providing younger looking skin, are not permanent solutions to aging skin. If you spend a lot of time outdoors in the sun, it is recommended that you not use a product that contains alpha hydroxy acids due to increased sun sensitivity during use. Before using a product that contains alpha hydroxy acids, you can do more research below to find out if it is worth the risk. 

Alpha Hydroxy Acid alternatives are listed in the popular search results. Visit our website soon again. From fall on, I am publishing new articles on recent development on anti aging research and skin care products. A new website section dedicated to reviews on "Face Care" will launch in a few weeks.
