Alpha Hudroxy Acid (AHA) for Your Skin

Quick Sources of Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) for Your Skin

My dear women, thank you for your incredible response to the 4-week Skin Regimen. It is great to hear incredible stories how little steps have changed many of your lives. Keep it happening! Daily!

A lot of your feedback contained questions about Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA): the best sources of AHA, why your skin needs it, if it is safe to use.

Here are some answers to your inquiries.

Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) is found in fruit and vegetables. There are several kinds of AHA, and here's a short list of its sources.
Malic Acid: Apples, vinegar, applesauce, cider
Lactic Acid: Buttermilk, yogurt, tomatoes, sour scream, blackberries, powdered skim milk
Tartaric Acid: Grapes, grape juice, wine, cream of tartar
Citric Acid: Citrus fruits such as orange, grapefruit, lemon, lime
Glycolic Acid: Sugar cane

Fruit acids are beneficial for your skin because they loosen the glue between dead skin cells. That allows the dead cells to fall away, revealing new, smooth, younger and softer skin surface.

Using natural sources of Alpha Hydroxy acid will produce the effects that you could imagine only from the most expensive and sophisticated products. Remember Cleopatra who submersed herself in the milk baths daily? Her skin was gorgeous! And so shall be yours!

Just a bit of quick efforts in the morning or evening: Mask made of fresh blackberries, or yogurt, or grapes. No mixing bowls. No chemicals. Just use the flesh of fresh fruit straight on your face, neck, and decolte.
