What is an AHA, BHA or Retinol

Learning more about what AHA, BHA or Retinols

AHA  stands for alpha hydroxy acid. Acids in this category are: Lactic, glycolic, citric and malic are the most widely used AHAS. These acids offer many benefits to the skin which include improving the skin with hydration, reduction of P. acnes bacteria, reduction of dead skin cells (hyperkeratinization) inhibition of dark spots (Melasma or hyperpigmentation) and collagen stimulation .

Beta hydroxy acid BHA is mostly salicylic acid. The same thing found in common aspirin. It has the ability to dissolve clogged pores in the follicles and will help reduce the occurrence of acne breakouts. It is also is anti-inflammatory.

Retinoids are all forms of vitamin A: retinoic acid, retinaldehyde and retinol being the most commonly used #retinol. Retinol is used at home and will help improve the skin health. It is best combined in well formulated creams and will boost collagen production and improve skin discoloration.

Why Use Active or Resting Products for your Skin Care Routine

Why would you use an active skin care product vs a resting or calming product?

The heart of #sanitas skin care is tested and proven skincare routines lies in the concept of “exercise and rest”. Sanitas skin care utilize alpha hydroxy acids to encourage skin renewal and strengthen the skin’s barrier. As the skin grows stronger, Sanitas products graduate in intensity and continue to elevate results to prevent your progress from stalling.

How do we rest the skin?

A resting phase and strengthening phase are both necessary to build continuous skin strength. On resting days, exercising products are eliminated and only pH neutral products are used to keep the skin’s barrier intact Limiting the use of exercising products to 3-4 days per week allows the skin to recover and regenerate.

How do we nourish the skin?

Just like the rest of your body, your skin needs daily nourishment to strengthen and remain healthy.  By following a program of exercise and rest, the skin is optimally primed to maximize the utilization of topical and internal nutrients the Sanitas collection features biogenic nutrition for topical use and three targeted supplements for internal support.
