Alpha-hydroxy Acid (AHA) fruit acid skin care products are easy to make at home. Fruit acids loosen the “glue” between dead skin cells, and the cells fall away, leaving your face very smooth and soft.
You will be amazed at how something as simple as dabbing some fresh lemon juice on your face every morning can make an enormous difference in how soft your skin feels. Try any of the following fruit acids, but always take care to avoid your eyes.
Here are three simple plant acids examples to use for your skin:
1. Lemon juice.
MORE HYDROXY ACIDS
Malic acid (apples, vinegar, applesauce, cider);
lactic acid (buttermilk, yogurt, powdered skim milk, sour cream, blackberries, tomatoes);
tartaric acid (grapes, grape juice, wine, cream of tartar);
citric acid (citrus fruits such as lemons, limes, grapefruit, and orange); or glycolic acid (sugar cane). Just dab some of the liquid on your face with your fingertips, let set for ten minutes or so, then rinse. Note, too, that your skin can get sunburned more easily when you use fruit acids, so make certain to use sunscreen.
