Today he is helping you figure out which Alpha Hydroxy product is right for your skin type!
Dr Oz: Alpha Hydroxy Acid Skin Benefits
Dermatologist Dr. Jeannette Graf says there is a lot of research around Alpha Hydroxy Acids. They are found in foods like citrus fruits, sugar cane and milk and they literally take the layer of dead skin and remove it to give you a new and fresher appearance.
They are also found in creams, moisturizers and beauty masks and Dr. Graf says every woman, regardless of her age, should be using a product that contains Alpha Hydroxy Acid if she wants to improve the look of her skin. She says that older women may even notice an even more dramatic difference when they begin to use these products.
Dr. Oz: Are Alpha Hydroxy Acid Products Safe?
Dr. Graf explained that when Alpha Hydroxy Acid products first came out many years ago there were many complaints because they were irritating to the skin. The newer formulations, though, are much safer and can even be used around the eye area.
Dr Oz: Does Alpha Hydroxy Acid Exfoliate the Skin?
Dr. Jeannette Graf says that while many women use several different products in an effort to improve their skin and get rid of wrinkles, there is really only need for one and that is Alpha Hydroxy Acid. For example, she says Alpha Hydroxy Acid is “smart” because when you apply it to the skin it knows exactly what to do, but if you are exfoliating with a scrub or a mechanical tool you could be doing more harm than good by either scrubbing too hard or not enough.
Dr. Oz says you could literally be wasting your money if you are not properly exfoliating your skin before applying creams and moisturizers. This is one of the reasons Alpha Hydroxy Acid is so beneficial. It effectively exfoliates the skin and removes the dead layer and exposes a renewed surface and an “opening” for the other products to enter and be beneficial.
