What are AHAs?

Glycolic Acid is the smallest AHA molecule, allowing it to penetrate and provide exfoliation to your skin.

Alpha Hydroxy Acids melt away dead skin cells to unveil your fresher, brighter looking skin beneath.

Whatever your age or skin type, hydroxy acids help to break down the outer layers of dead skin cells to reveal a polished, luminous glow. It’s a miracle Facial in a tube for minimising the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin texture, and hyperpigmentation!

What Are the Benefits of AHAs?

Naturally, as we age, our skin’s cell turnover cycle becomes sluggish, resulting in dullness, discolouration, sagging, fine lines, and clogged pores. Effective exfoliation of dead skin cells results in fresh, smoother, healthy looking skin, and an instant radiant-looking glow.

Charlotte’s NEW! Super Radiance Resurfacing Facial is expertly calibrated with three magic hydroxy acids for a multi-layered resurfacing effect! AHAs, like Glycolic Acid, work to refine the appearance of pores and exfoliate the skin, promoting smoother-looking, more beautiful skin. Then, the supercharged blend of hydrating and glow-boosting ingredients, including Polyglutamic Acid and Hyaluronic Acid cocoon the skin in moisture for a gleaming, youthful, healthy look and feel.
