Ascorbic Acid Skincare


Skincare acid can be overwhelming especially when it comes to your skin. As the name also suggests, can be very expensive. Acids, like most other skincare products cater to a wide range of skin types so I am wanting to go through a few now.

Ascorbic acid also know as Vitamin C is necessary for repair of all your bodies tissue. It is also a water-soluble nutrient found in some foods, acting as a antioxidant, helping to protect cells further from damage. Vitamin C is essential to make Collagen, a protein to help heal wounds.

Salicylic Acid:

One of the best home remedies is using Aspirin to fight blackheads and whiteheads. It works by unclogging pores but also acting as an anti-inflammatory which calms inflamed skin.

Glycolic Acid:

Is great for exfoliating or aging skin. Derived from sugar cane, yet the most effective off all exfoliating acids, making this the most popular of all.

Dermatologists are familiar in using this to prep for other procedures and almost all skin types. This is excluding people with sensitive skin or rosacea.
