Skincare In A Winter Wonderland
As the snow approaches, many of us are looking for ways to maintain our radiant, glowing skin. One skincare ingredient that recently gained popularity is alpha hydroxy acids, or AHAs.
AHAs are chemical exfoliants that remove dead skin cells and stimulate collagen production, giving your skin a smoother, clearer appearance. While AHAs are an excellent option for year-round skincare, they can be instrumental in winter when our skin tends to be drier and more prone to flakiness.
As we age, our skin loses some of its ability to shed dead skin cells, leading to a buildup of dry, dull skin on the surface. AHAs work to break down this buildup, revealing fresh, new skin underneath, giving your skin a smoother, more youthful appearance.
AHAs can also help improve your skin's overall texture and tone. By encouraging the production of collagen, AHAs can help to firm and tighten the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
When using AHAs, it's essential to remember that they can increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun. It would be best to start using AHAs at night to give your skin time to adjust and reduce the risk of irritation. If you're using AHAs in the winter, apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily to protect your skin from damaging UV rays.
Overall, AHAs can be a great addition to your winter skincare routine. Whether you're looking to combat dryness and flakiness or improve your skin's overall texture and tone, AHAs are versatile and the best option.

Tartaric Acid - From fermented grapes, it boosts glycolic and/or lactic acid to strengthen sloughing power. But its unique benefit is its ability to regulate the formula’s pH level.
Citric Acid - This AHA found primarily in lemons and limes, helps buffer other acids. Citric acid is also a chelator, which means it eliminates irritating impurities (from air, water, and heavy metals) on the skin. Citric acid grabs onto these impurities so that they cannot enter the skin.
Lactic Acid (AHA) - Exfoliates, lightens dark spots, and improves the look of fine lines and wrinkles. All alpha hydroxy acids exfoliate and improve skin texture, but lactic acid has an extra benefit. It helps improve the skin's natural moisture factor by bonding to the top layer of skin and stimulates it to make ceramides, which help keep moisture in and irritants out.
