|Welcome to our newsletter where we will discuss B for Beta-Hydroxy |
|What are they and why are they good for the skin? Read on to find |
|Sleepless nights, partying (oops not quite yet in lockdow) and forgetting about your good skin habits!!!!! Oh dear!!!! What comes next? Acne breakouts, pimples, blackheads and more, of course.|
Stay calm and carry on. ZO Skin Health has solutions that are easy and simple enough even for everyone.
|AHA’s and BHA’s Beta hydroxy acids are found in many skin care products, from cleansers to daily peel pads. We all need to exfoliate regularly to get rid of dead dull skin cells and make room for new ones, and both of these are effective exfoliants. But there are differences between how these two key skin care ingredients really work.|
Knowing the difference between the two and choosing the right one for your skincare needs can really help you get and keep your glow. Today is all about BHA’s but lets also look at the AHA’s briefly.
|If you have dry skin, AHAs are your BFF |
AHA stands for “Alpha Hydroxy Acid.” Some popular AHA’s include glycolic (derived from sugar cane), lactic (made from sour milk), and mandelic (comes from almonds) acids. AHAs are ideal for sun-damaged and dry skin because they help to exfoliate and moisturise. So for this you want Exfoliation Accelerator – a mix of potent glycolic and lactic acid
If you have acne-prone skin, BHAs are your BFF
BHA is short for “Beta Hydroxy Acid.” It penetrates the pores and helps release the ‘gunk’ trapped inside. This is why they are perfect for oily and acne-prone skin. The most well known BHA is salicylic acid. So we suggests complexiion renewal pads or oil control pads for acne-prone skin. These daily treatment pads are one of ZO’s hero products for oily skin types.
BHAs are oil soluble. This means that they can penetrate through any oil clogged pores, so they are working into a deeper level of the skin. BHAs are often used if you have tried to exfoliate with AHAs but need something a bit stronger, or of the needs of your skin have changed. They are generally encouraged for use on oily and acne prone skin, this is also due to their anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.
|Something To Note|
An important factor to remember with BHAs is you must wear a daily SPF 30 or higher! This is because where they exfoliate the skin’s surface, you will be more vulnerable to sun damage. The best direction is to apply your BHA product at night before bed, so it has time to really work on the skin, then apply SPF as part of your morning routine to keep you protected.
