Paula’s Choice 8% AHA Solution Benefits
Exfoliates your skin: Glycolic acid exfoliates the surface level dead skin by dissolving the bonds between the skin cells revealing the underlying skin layer which is much smoother and fresher. It also boosts collagen production that gives an even younger glow to your skin.
Soothing and healing effect: Chamomilla Recutita flower extract, Arctium lappa root extract and salt form of licorice extract help soothe inflammation owing to its anti-inflammatory properties. These along with Tocopheryl acetate works great as a powerful antioxidant that fights against collagen-damaging radicals.
Keeps skin soft and hydrated: Glycerin and phospholipids help keep the skin moisture intact.
Anti-acne: AHA also helps in reducing acne by exfoliating the dead skin cells occluding pores. Moreover, it also helps in reducing post-acne dark spots.
