AHA, BHA and PHA Chemical scrubs you need to know about.

In some skin care products you can find ingredients with such strange names that you even feel suspicious because they are some chemical that harms you instead of helping you, right? And the truth is that they have such complicated names that we know little about them.

One of those ingredients could be AHAs, BHAs and PHAs. Better known as chemical scrubs. But what are these? Their main function is to dissolve the bonds that bind dead cells in the upper layer of the skin. Eliminating them and opening the way to a new, smooth and above all uniform skin.

  1. AHAs Alpha-hydroxy acids.
    The most common is glycolic acid. Perfect for dry skin, as it helps maintain hydration in the face and stimulates collagen production. Helping to diminish wrinkles and fine lines. They are soluble in water, so they cannot penetrate the deeper layers of the skin. Even so, they reduce the appearance of fine lines, scars and blemishes.

  2. BHAs Beta-hydroxy acids.
    These are ideal for oily to combination skin types. Its main function is to remove excess sebum from within. In addition to having antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Being oil soluble, they penetrate beyond the surface of the skin. Cleaning pores and improving their appearance.

  3. PHAs Poly-hydroxy acid
    These are not so common and few are aware of them. They are just getting back into the world of beauty since they have many benefits. The size is molecular, it is the largest of all. They cannot be easily absorbed into the skin making them perfect for sensitive skin. They help remove dead cells and also stimulate skin regeneration.


The most recommended mode of use is to use them after cleansing and toning your skin. They can be applied with a milkweed or directly with your hands. Just make sure they are clean. In circular motions, make sure to apply it evenly. If you are new to these scrubs, you can gradually start using them two to three times a week. So until your skin gets used to it. If you decide to use them at night or in the morning, it is super important that you do not forget to apply sunscreen during the day. Try not to over-exfoliate. If you notice any kind of dryness, it is better to discontinue use. And these scrubs should not be mixed when you are using a product with retinol or vitamin C. Before using them, I recommend that you go to a dermatologist for the correct use of these
