I love my Alpha Hydrox! I have very dry skin which is known to cause wrinkles - Eww! My skin looks and feels so much better. It did tingle at first but not for long. Alpha Hydrox has AHA's which come from nature, they are natural and come from foods like sour milk, fruits and nuts. The AHA in Alpha Hydrox is glycolic acid and is made from sugar cane. AHA's remove the top layer of dead skin cells off because they are exfoliates. They loosen the glue like substance that holds dead cells on.
AHA products are known to tingle for a bit when you first start to use them. This is normal and will go away although the AHA's will still be working. It just means your skin has gotten use to them. AHA's are gentler to
the skin than scrubs or exfoliates. AHA's may be used once or even twice a day while scrubs should never be used that much. Because AHA's can be used so frequently it tricks the skin into thinking it needs to produce new cells. Therefore it is in constant state of turnover and renewal. The new healthy skin is on the surface not the old dead cells. Due to this AHA's help to even skin tone and texture, reduci ng fine lines and wrinkles. AHA's make skin feel softer and smoother while keeping it moist and plump.
The dead layer of skin is natures way of protecting skin from the the effects of the sun so you should always use sunscreen, not just when using this product but anytime you exfoliate your skin with anything. We should always wear sunscreen anyway.
The only skin care treatment that continues to show results over time are the ones with AHA's. Botox, rejuvederm, dermabrasion, and surgery diminish their effects over time. Alpha Hydrox was the first to make AHA's available without a prescription and has the highest percentage available over the counter. Alpha Hydrox is a great value, all their products are under $20., AHA's are $10-$15.
