Effects of fruit acid peels

Acid peel is a type of superficial peel that mainly targets skin problems such as acne, acne, enlarged pores, acne scars, excessive oil production on the face, fine lines or wrinkles, freckles, small solar moles, liver spots, etc.

According to the concentration and pH value of fruit acids, they will produce different effects on the skin. For example: fruit acids with extremely low concentrations and pH closer to neutral can achieve moisturizing effects, while fruit acids with a slightly higher concentration can damage the skin. The connections between cells in the stratum corneum exfoliate and promote skin metabolism.

Generally, acidic chemicals with the chemical structural formula AHAs are collectively called fruit acids. Most of them can be extracted from fruits and belong to the weak acid category. One of the most famous acids is glycolic acid, which has the smallest molecular weight and the best penetration into the skin, so it is the first choice for so-called fruit acid peels. Others, such as citric acid, tartaric acid, mandelic acid, etc., are also among the fruit acids.

When the concentration increases and the pH value decreases, its destructive power will increase with the increase in concentration. The higher the concentration, the lower the pH value, and the more the effect can reach the dermal tissue to achieve the effect of chemical peeling. *But it is not recommended for beauty lovers to use it at home*
