A

IS FOR AL­PHA HYDROXY ACID

Singapore Women's Weekly (Singapore) - - LOOKBOOK -

Al­pha Hydroxy Acids (or AHAs), de­rived from milk and fruit sug­ars, in­clude gly­colic acid, lac­tic acid, citric acid and malic acid. They work to loosen the bind­ing be­tween the sur­face lay­ers of dead skin, so newer skin is re­vealed, im­prov­ing dull­ness and un­even skin tone. AHA should ideally be ap­plied at night, as skin tends to be more photo-sen­si­tive. TRY: Al­lies of Skin Bright Fu­ture Overnight Fa­cial, $159 (50 ml); Al­pha-H Liq­uid Gold With Gly­colic Acid, $56 (100 ml).
