The Hidden Benefits to the "pot of gold" known as AHA

Most people are familiar with AHA (Alpha-Hydroxy Acid), but some might be intimidated by the, once perceived aggressive beauty care regiment, due to a lack of knowledge. When you are done reading this blog, the amount of knowledge you acquire will make you want to rush to Hoola Hoops to stock up on FarmHouse Fresh AHA products. 

AHA became popular in the early 1990s and in the 2000's with an increase in a number of cosmetic products, including lotions, sun blocks, peels, masks, and toners that contained it. One of the most well-known benefits of AHA in skincare is exfoliation, with AHAs frequently being used in chemical peels. As AHAs are water-soluble, they can penetrate the upper layers of the skin. By breaking down the bonds between dead skin cells, AHAs slough off these cells, revealing newer skin underneath.

If you're a beginner, I suggest you start with the lowest concentration and use it twice a week. Once your skin has adopted the ingredient well, you can include it in your daily use. You may start seeing results within minutes of the first application, but peak results — such as anti-aging effects — don't appear until 12 weeks.

Some of the incredible benefits when using AHA are; getting rid of dead skin cells, promoting radiance, reducing visible sun damage, reducing dryness, smoothing skin texture, helping to prevent blemishes, visibly reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and enhancing youthful appearance. 

The benefits are endless making AHA your new best friend. I suggest not walking but running to Hoola Hoops to stock up on some amazing AHA products like Smooth Reveal, Thyme Swipe, and Necks-Level Smooth.
