AHA Treats Acne and Minimize Pores

Alpha Hydrox AHA Souffle 12% Glycolic AHA 1.6 oz (45 g)

Most people know AHA, which is Alpha hydrox acids in long, is great for eliminating fine lines and wrinkles by promoting the production of collagen and elastin. In fact, creams with AHA have another great quality - they remove the excess oiliness that often leads to clogged pores and acne. Since these acids exfoliate the skin, they help in unclogging the pores and removing dead skin cells. By doing so, they treat acne, prevent blackheads, and minimize large pores too! For acne sufferers with oily skin, chemical peels with a high concentration of AHA may be the best option, while people with dry skin should opt for over-the-counter creams and lotions that are less intense.
