Welcome to a new monthly feature post! “Try Outs” showcases products that I’m currently sampling. I’m always trying lots of new products, as I showed in my last sample post. Whatever their impact might be, good or bad, I keep a little mental review in my mind if it’s something I want to come back to and purchase full sized.
What are they? What do they do? Why do I need them? All great questions with easy answers. AHA’s or Alpha Hydroxy Acids are natural acids that are derived from food and plants. They sound like something a chemist created in a lab, but some are actually found in things we can eat. Here are a few:
- Citric (found in citrus fruits)
- Glycolic (found in sugar cane)
- Lactic (found in sour milk)
- Malic (found in apples)
- Tartaric (found in grapes)
