The anti aging power of beta hydroxy acids

The anti aging power of beta hydroxy acids

If you take your anti aging skincare regimen seriously, you likely know how to decipher what each ingredient in your skincare cream is for. But if you're unsure, allow us to introduce you to an element you probably use every day, you just didn't know it - beta hydroxy acids (BHAs).

Like alpha hydroxy acids, BHAs are commonly additives found in high-end beauty products that can help your skin obtain a luminous glow. However, BHAs contain a few key differences from their helpful counterpart, and depending on what you're searching for, it's important that you be able to decipher which is best for your complexion.

BHAs serve as exfoliants and are effective in reducing fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of aging. They can also eliminate the appearance of mottled pigmentation over time and, because they're lipid soluble - which means they’re able to dissolve in oil - BHAs are considered by some to be superior to water soluble AHAs at penetrating pores.

The most commonly used BHA is salicylic acid. At a concentration of about 1 to 2 percent, BHAs can be a lifesaver for your complexion.

For a product containing BHAs, try Bliss No Zit Sherlock Correcting Serum. Formulated with probiotics and salicylic acid to minimize the look of uneven pigmentation, texture and tone at the site of former pimples, this serum delivers on all the benefits BHAs have to offer.
