AHA Magic: Transform Your Skin with Daughter Earth!


Skincare is an ever-evolving subject where trends come and go. AHA has earned unwavering prominence lately. These powerful compounds are transforming skin by improving its texture and appearance, making them a must-have in modern skincare regimens. Daughter Earth offers AHA-based skincare products infused with vegan goodness, catering to diverse skin types and establishing a reputation for transformative AHA magic.

Let us explore the wonders AHA can do to our skin, delivering solutions that actually resonate!


Understanding AHA for Skin Transformation

The full form of AHA is Alpha Hydroxy Acids. These are a group of acids that appear naturally in certain food items, such as milk, fruits, and sugar cane. AHAs are used in skin care as exfoliants to remove dead cells and address specific concerns such as dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and scars.


#Fact: Due to their unique properties, AHAs may not be good for Melanin-rich skins. To get the desired results while avoiding hyperpigmentation risks, specialized guidance is required.


How AHA Works?

AHAs act by breaking down the gluey material that connects skin cells to release the top layer of old skin cells and reveal the new cells. This stimulates the skin's cell growth, increasing cell turnover. 


Types of AHA

Some common examples of AHAs used by dermatologists include the following:

  • Lactic acid (dairy and fermented vegetables)
  • Malic acid (apples)
  • Glycolic acid (sugarcane)
  • Tartaric acid (grapes)
  • Citric acid (citrus fruits)

Lactic and glycolic acid are some of the most well-known AHAs. But all AHAs work in a similar way.


AHA Benefits

The benefits of AHAs for the skin include

  • Gentle exfoliation when compared to other harsh methods.
  • Improving skin texture by removing rough skin 
  • Reducing blemishes, hyperpigmentation, melasma, marks, sun damage, etc.
  • Decreasing the visible signs of aging by increasing collagen and elastin fibers
  • Reducing acne

For Dry Skin

The best AHA products for dry skin exfoliate its outer layer, encouraging cell turnover, increasing moisture absorption, and presenting a smoother, more revitalized complexion. Even with exfoliating AHA products, a well-balanced skincare regimen is essential. Hydration, UV protection, and gentle washing all contribute to excellent skin health and maximize AHA effects.


For Sensitive Skin

The best AHA products for sensitive skin provide gentle exfoliation and help improve the skin texture without causing irritation. It is advised to choose milder AHA formulations for sensitive skin, such as lactic acid.

When using AHA for Sensitive Skin, it might lead to redness, stinging, burning, or increased sensitivity. Gradual introduction and patch testing are crucial.


For Oily Skin

The best AHA products for oily skin control excess oil production, diminish acne and unclog pores. The products do not excessively dry the skin and help to attain smoother and balanced skin.


Integrating AHA into Skincare Routine

There are many ways to incorporate AHA into our skincare routine. Some products that contain AHA include

  • Cleansers
  • Toners
  • Face pads
  • Serums
  • Moisturizers

The American Academy of Dermatology recommends checking the suitability of AHA exfoliation for your skin type before using it daily. There is a technique called patch testing through which you can check the suitability of the products. 

You may start with simple patch testing, where a small area of skin is exposed to the product for 24 hours or more. After this time, if there are no signs of irritation, you can gradually proceed and incorporate AHA products into your skincare routine. Adversely, if irritation occurs, reduce usage frequency or stop the usage for some time.
