AHAs: Side Effects

Side-Effects of AHAs

The side effects from AHA containing products can include burns, itching, pain, and possibly scarring. The degree of acidity (the pH) of the product also can affect irritation. Some experts advise that people should purchase products with AHA concentrations of 10% or less and a pH of 3.5 or higher (the higher the pH, the lower the acidity). If any adverse effects occur, the use should be stopped immediately. In any case, people are advised to avoid sunlight or use proper protection when using them.

The best way to use an AHA product would be to try the product for some time and see the difference in skin. Avoid sunlight exposure while using AHA products and watch for any side-effects. Consulting your dermatologist before using these products would be the right course of action.
