When it comes to our skin we only have three goals: Clear, soft, and glowing. If you already have all of the above, trust us, you are god’s favourite child. But how many of us get to achieve that, is the real question?

Pretty sure, mostly all of us have been dealing with the constant struggle of searching for products to get that flawless skin. Experimenting with different products over a period of time seems easy but is only waste and not the best thing for your skin.

If you are also one of those, we have just discovered a secret for you! Acids are the new age skincare helpers. Yes, to most of us the sound of putting acids on the skin seems weird and scary. But what we do not know is that some acids have a very powerful effect on your skin and a lesser-known fact is that not all are harmful.

AHAs and BHAs are some of the most trusted acids used in our everyday skincare routine and have also proven to be highly effective in giving our skin a clear and smooth texture. Let us all learn more about what their superpowers are.

What are AHA’s?

AHA’s mainly called Alpha Hydroxy Acids are the water-soluble acids that help us in removing all the dead skin cells off the layer of the skin. They loosen up the bond between the skin cells that in return provides a healthy brighter glow.

Few benefits of using AHA Acid in skincare products:

1. Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
2. Boosts blood and skin cell circulation.
3. Reduces discolouration on the face.
4. Exfoliates the skin deeply.
5. Removes all the dirt and unwanted particles off the skin.
6. Brightens the skin complexion.

What is BHA?

BHA is known as Beta Hydroxy Acid. They are more oil-soluble acids that are specialized to cure acne and pimples and curing breakouts. They go deep inside the layers of your skin to get rid of all the free radicals and impurities.

Few benefits of using BHAs in skincare products:

1. They help spots disappear quicker.
2. Also popular for spot treatment.
3. Reduce inflammation and calm down the redness in the skin.
4. They have antibacterial properties.
