Alpha Hydroxy acids are found in citrus fruits, sugar cane, and milk.  they help to make your skin younger by removing a layer of dead skin and revealing a fresh new layer of skin for a fresh and youthful appearance.  You can also find alpha hydroxy acids in beauty products and creams.

Dr. Graf said that many years ago Alpha Hydroxy creams caused irritation to the skin.  However, new formulas are much safer and you can even use the creams around your eyes.Alpha Hydroxy Acids help by exfoliating the skin and removing a dead layer of skin.  After your skin has been exfoliated by the Alpha Hydroxy Acids your renewed skin will allow your other beauty products like moisturizers and wrinkle creams to be even more effective!

  • Check the label and look for 10% Glycolic Acid on the label.

This is why lotions and serums are better than Alpha Hydroxy Acid cleansers.  Dr. Graf said that Alpha Hydroxy Acids provide a greater benefit if allowed to stay in the skin.
