AHAs: The perfect anti-aging solution for dark skin tones

Everyone ages, but the types of damage and conditions that result from aging differ from person to person. Depending on your skin type and the tone of your complexion, you might have totally different concerns than your family members or friends. For example, if you have dark skin, you're more susceptible to uneven skintone, but there's one group of skincare ingredients that can help.

According to Allure magazine, as dark skin ages, the glue-like bonds between cells become stickier and cells don't shed properly, which can result in uneven light and dark patches across the face. However, this can easily be remedied by alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) like glycolic, lactic or malic acid, which work to break the bonds and allow the cells to slough off more easily.

If you've noticed uneven patches in your complexion, try using anti aging skincare products with AHAs, which are gentler than scrubs and exfoliants on deeper skin tones. A cleanser like La Thérapie Glycolic Démaquillant Renew Peaux Neuves A Glycolic Cleansing Wash helps to resurface your skin and even out those dark patches. You'll be left with a more uniform skin tone and a softer, smoother face.
