Acids and skincare: the most used ingredients in cosmetics

Acids and skincare: the most used ingredients in cosmetics

Apr 19, 2021

Acids are among the most effective ingredients to fight skin imperfections. They are not only used by the most famous celebrities in the world but also by many skincare lovers to reduce the intensity of spots, discolorations, scars, acne but also signs of aging. 

In general, they are therefore very valuable to regenerate the skin and make it healthier and brighter, but it is important to select the most suitable for your skin.

In cosmetics there are two types, alpha hydroxy acids or AHA and beta hydroxy acids or BHA. The first ones are usually extracted from fruit and act on the superficial layers of the skin such as glycolic acid, mandelic acid and lactic acid whereas BHAs interact with the deep layers of the skin such as salicylic acid.

Among the most loved and requested ones there is glycolic acid: it is an ingredient frequently found in exfoliating products such as toners and helps cell renewal, making skin immediately softer and more elastic.

Mandelic and lactic acids, on the other hand, are perfect for more sensitive skin thanks to their delicate action. In addition to treating problems such as acne, they give tone and firmness to the skin.

Finally, salicylic acid is the most suitable for oily and impure skins, a real panacea that reduces, from the first treatments, the appearance of pimples and blackheads.

In the market there are many formulations enriched by acids: in addition to creams and serums, you can find in stores and pharmacies also tonics and face sprays.
