One problem I run into often having dry skin, is that products used to treat fine lines and/or sun spots and acne scars, tend to dry out my skin even more. I’ve tried dozens, and often find this to be a problem for my skin.
As most of you know Glycolic Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) is one of the most effective anti-wrinkle treatments on the market. It can be used without a PRX and comes highly recommended by many dermatologists. AHA is also a natural product and can be found in foods such as nuts and citrus fruits.
AHA’s are effective because it causes the skin to keep producing new cells when you use it, so the skin is in a constant state of cell renewal and turnover. The more you use it, the better your skin will feel and look! The Alpha Hydrox Enhanced Lotion uses 10% Glycolic AHA (8% or more has been proven effective) but they combine it with rich moisturizers as well as Vitamin E to keep skin from drying out.
Alpha Hydrox Enhanced lotion was created to treat fine lines, discoloration, as well restore healthy, more radiant skin! This enhanced lotion works to lift dead cells, as well as renew moisture to the skin, refine texture, and improve elasticity.
I loved using this product. I found it very moisturizing for my dry skin. My skin felt smoother and softer after using this product for a few weeks. My skin did not react in a negative way at all. No stinging or redness. I used it both day and night to get the maximum results! It is natural to feel a little tingling when you first start using products containing AHA, but I actually didn’t even feel that! I loved that it also works as an exfoliant but you don’t feel it at all. AHA’s are a much gentler exfoliant and can be used once or twice a day, and it won’t irritate the skin like using a scrub that often would! The lotion is smooth like any other moisturizer, but the AHA works as an ongoing exfoliant on your skin, helping to soften and smooth out your skin with continued use.
While I don’t have too many fine lines, I do have some skin discoloration. I have a few sun spots and some acne scars and I feel like the Alpha Hydrox Enhanced Lotion did help lighten my brown spots and acne scars over the last few weeks! I’m actually very excited to continue using this product to keep renewing those skin cells! I loved using this product so much I’m dying to try the rest of the Alpha Hydrox line. And guess what? This sounds like it would be an expensive product right? It’s not! You can pick it up and any of Alpha Hydrox’s wonderful products for under $20 each! The AHA product I used is only 10.99! Right now you can buy one get one half off on their website!
If you would like to try the Alpha Hydrox Enhanced Lotion, or check out the rest of their fabulous skin care line, you can check out their website at NeotericCosmetics.com or pick their products up at your nearest Walgreens! And remember, when using this product, be sure to use SPF as new skin cells become more sensitive to the sunlight and can give you sun burns more easily! You can also purchase it HERE on Amazon!
