Home Made AlphaHydroxide Peeling Mask

Alpha hydroxide peeling mask

Alpha hydroxy acids, also known as aha, are acidic components used in many over-the-counter products, as well as professional products that serve as a chemical peel for the skin. They may be irritating and can cause redness and photosensitivity, which is why many people avoid professional peeling. This mask is a gentler alternative, which relies on lactic acid, an aha found in sour milk, yogurt, and kefir.

The acidity of this formula is then treated with aloe vera gel and honey, so it can be better tolerated than a chemical peel. It is still recommended, however to do a patch test in the small area before applying this mask to the face to avoid skin purging. Always avoid contact with eyes, and do not apply to open cuts and wounds or on irritated skin. This formula works well at the end of summer for improved out skin appearance and to unify skin tone. Don’t use with retinol and retinoid to prevent tretinoin purge.

Mix plain yogurt, aloe vera gel, honey and ground oats. Mix the above ingredients in a small bowl and then apply to the face always avoiding the eyes. Leave on for 10 minutes before rinsing with lukewarm water. Follow up with a moisturizer and a high SPFsunscreen. Repeat on a weekly basis for 3 to 4 weeks for more obvious results.
