If you want healthy-looking, radiant skin, exfoliating should be a staple in your body care routine. But getting rid of dead skin cells doesn't just refer to those gritty formulas you may be familiar with. True, our skin goes through a natural exfoliating process daily, without exfoliants but with aging that process tends to slow down— so, a little help from some exfoliating products is often a good idea for extra glowy skin. 

What are AHA’s?

Alpha hydroxy acids  (Or AHA’s) are a group of acids, some of which are derived from plant sources, which is why they are often called fruit acids. Alpha hydroxy acids are water-soluble, so they can’t easily pass through the lipid barrier of your skin. Instead, they tend to stick closer to the surface, where they dissolve the bonds that hold dead skin cells together— ultimately dissolving dead skin cell buildup and reducing congestion so that those dead skin cells can be rinsed away. Once they are washed away, reveal refined and healthy cells underneath. Some AHAs can be more powerful than others, depending on the concentration. We use AHA’s from Kiwi Fruit that is certainly gentle enough for sensitive skin.

How often should I use products with AHA’s?

AHAs are generally recommended for normal to dry, sun-damaged skin, thanks to their ability to enhance natural moisturizing factors within the skin. Our White Sands Dual Action Body Scrub uses AHA's from Kiwi Fruit, that are gentle enough to use every day, even on sensitive skin.
