What in the world are AHAS BHAS and RETINOLS

This week we are learning about acids that are used on your skin and why in the world would you use them. Yesterday, we learned that glycolic acid is an exfoliant and is used to deliver other ingredients into your skin.

Today, let us look at LACTIC ACID which is derived from milk, fruit, vegetables and some plants. It is a milder form of alpha hydroxy acids and one that is a moisturizing. It is much less irritating to sensitive skin than glycolic because it has a larger molecular structure and penetrates the skin much slower than glycolic. Lactic acid is a natural component of your cells and can stimulate collagen production. Lactic Acid will smooth out the appearance of large pores and lightly improve acne scars. Lactic Acid will also aid your skins barrier function and improve the water barrier properties by increasing ceramides and glycosamino-glycans (natural moisturizers).

You will find LACTIC ACID in many skin care products ranging from light peels, moisturizers, serums and cleansers.

Spa Water – Recipes

Enjoy a sip of refreshing spa water and stay hydrated inside and out. Your largest body organ – your skin requires hydration. Infusing your water will add vitamins and minerals to your body and produce brighter, younger-looking skin. Add delicious fruits and vegetables to enjoy a more palatable flavor.  Please only use organic fruits and vegetables.

Orange, Lemon, Parsley, Cucumber is a flavor I enjoy during the winter months. The ingredients are easy to obtain and the citrus/green blend is refreshing.

1 bunch of parsley; 2 cucumbers sliced, 2 lemons sliced, 3 oranges squeezed and retain the peels for the water.  Mix in 1 gallon of purified water, infuse for 2-3 hours. Avoid dehydration and enjoy refreshing spa water. Keep in your refrigerator all week and you will be surprised how much easier it will be to consume enough water.
