The Damage Erasers

November 14, 2021

Acids have had a profound impact on skin care thanks to their exfoliating capabilities. In general, skin care acids provide chemical exfoliation that promotes the natural shedding of dead skin and helps accelerate turnover. These acids work by dissolving the bonds that hold dead cells on the skin’s surface, which makes it easier for them to flake off. Acid-based exfoliation helps improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, skin discoloration and rough texture by eliminating the build-up of dull, dead cells and keeping fresh, healthy cells on the skin’s surface. They can erase damage when paired with the skilled hands of a skin care pro–and a carefully curated daily skin care routine.

Leverage the Power of Acids

Exfoliating skin care acids fall into two main categories, alpha-hydroxy and beta-hydroxy acids. The key difference between the two is that alpha-hydroxy acids — like malic acid — are water-soluble and beta-hydroxy acids — like salicylic acid — are oil-soluble. Both types can be found in certain skin care products, but their max power comes from in-clinic chemical peels. Epionce has two expertly formulated peels that can be tailored to any skin type. Whether in need of a quick refresh or want to resolve specific skin concerns like scarring or visible aging, talk with an Epionce skin care professional to determine which peel will effectively help you achieve your best skin.
