An Exfoliating Cleanser With Alternative Ahas
By Marci Robin , Senior Online Editor |
If you're a fan of alpha-hydroxy-acid cleansers, like we are, but you're looking to make a minor but mighty switch in order to breathe new life into your complexion, take a look at the uncommon M2 Exfoliating Cleanser.
Instead of the typical AHAs, such as glycolic or lactic acids, this soap-free face wash is focused around mandelic and malic acids (which are usually extracted from almonds and apples, respectively). Almost any skin type can benefit from their capabilities, ranging from acne-clearing to anti-aging.
Additionally, mandelic and malic acids are naturally antibacterical, humectant, and antioxidative; so while this formula gently dissolves dirt and dead skin, it also gets your skin into optimal condition.
