AHA’s have proved extremely popular this year at Cosmiko, and with all the benefits why wouldn’t it! Who does not wish for brighter, younger looking skin?
Cosmiko’s AHA’s (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) contain a combination of Five highly effective acids that are naturally derived from plant-based sources.
Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid, Malic Acid, Citric Acid, Tartaric Acid.
These act by weakening the bonds that hold the dead skin cells together, leaving the skin tone more even, reducing hyperpigmentation caused by acne scarring, helping reduce fine lines and improving skin hydration.
