Using Topical Exfoliants to Shed Skin and Look Younger

Recently, beta hydroxy acids (BHAs), or a combination of AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) and BHAs, have appeared as ingredients in skin care products.


While both AHAs and BHAs act as exfoliants, it has been claimed that BHAs are effective in reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improving overall skin texture, without the occasional irritation associated with the use of AHAs.

AHA ingredients: are glycolic acid, lactic acid, malic acid, citric acid, glycolic acid + ammonium glycolate,alpha-hydroxyethanoic acid + ammonium alpha-hydroxyethanoate,alpha-hydroxyoctanoic acid, alpha-hydroxycaprylic acid, hydroxycaprylic acid, mixed fruit acid, tri-alpha hydroxy fruit acids, triple fruit acid, sugar cane extract, alpha hydroxy and botanical complex L-alpha hydroxy acid, glycomer in crosslinked fatty acids alpha nutrium The most commonly used and most effective AHAs are glycolic and lactic acids. Both of these easily penetrate the skins surface, and they have the most accumulated research on their functionality and benefit for skin.

Glycolic and Lactic acids dissolve the "skins cement" that binds the dead skin cells to the surface of your skin. The AHA exfoliation allows the newer cells underneath to come to the surface. Eliminating the dead cells can unplug pores, allows normal oil flow through and out of the pores, allows skin moisture by enhancing moisture uptake and binds water to the skin.


AHAs and BHAs use a chemical process to penetrate the skin, versus scrubs that scrape the exposed area of skin. AHAs and BHAs only exfoliate, or remove the dead/damaged skin cells and leaves the healthy skin cells alone. Most skin care companies utilize up to 10% AHA .It is highly recommended to use sunscreen as AHA causes skin sensitivity and you may burn easier. Wear a hat with a brim of at least 4 inches, long sleeve shirt, and sunscreen of SPF 15.
Remember: Sun Protection used everyday is the Best Wrinkle Preventer.

Thanks guys, but for this one I have to give the credit to the Pioneer Thinking. Many of us know how retinoids can work great for our skin and has many benefits. Lactic acid also is a great exfoliant, especially for sensitive skin and skin that produce more melanin since it is gentle, lightens some over time, makes your skin very smooth, and really helps with scars, acne spots, blemishes, etc.
But, for the past several weeks I'm noticing really smooth, brightened, and polished skin with the glycolic acid/mulberry root serum (makari). I have resumed to using the nadinola 3% on my face as well since my goal is to lighten more than brighten, so I'm glad my skin is beginning to show signs of lightening again. The percentage of glycolic wasn't mentioned, but I'm assuming it may possibly be around 10%.

Cordell which lactic acid product are you using and at what strength?

Wow GG. I am glad you are getting better results incorporating the acids in your regimen. Mulberry is said to be a natural lightener too and many people have used this (the powder) in lightening products. I have done tca peels in the past and this really helped to exfoliate dead skin and produces brighter smoother skin. Great info by the way.

Big thanks Allure. For me, mulberry seem to be more of a mild skin lightener and not really potent on it's own for brown skin and maybe work better with other skin lightening agents. Then again, I do not know the percentage they have used, although it is one of the ingredients near the top.

Which brands of TCA peels and percentages have you used, and price range of them?

GG I have used TCA peels from platinumskincare.com. The prices ranges from anywhere from 15 to $104 plus depending on the strength. I know that the prices are ridiculous but I trust platinum and have gotten some good products from them. You can do a search for competitive prices though.

wow allure !! $104. !!! That stuff better be good !! I did notice that the sizes are bigger than some place. It looks like they give a lot of info on the site, which is good.

The last place I bought TCA from, was on ebay. It was a while ago now, but it did help to significantly fade a scar that I had.

I know, $104!
Thanks for the links guys. I may have to try a higher strength lactic acid for the remaining scars on my body, the 50% has heped fade a few of my scars completely but still some remain. I may have to start with a tca 12%, as I have never used tca peels as of yet. I see they have L-ascorbic acid as well.
