#1: AHA

What:

AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) are acids found in natural substances such as sugar cane, milk and citrus foods. In skincare, the acids are often listed as citric acid, glycolic acid and lactic acid. Apart from being a natural moisturising agent, AHAs mainly act as a chemical exfoliant to break down dead cells on the surface of your skin. Pores will then be unclogged, which in turn helps to fade pimple scars and prevent the formation of acne to reveal a smoother, softer and brighter complexion.
