The Best Skin Care Products with Alpha Hydroxy Acids
We’re having a major AHA moment – alpha hydroxy acids, that is!
There are a variety of different acids commonly used in the skincare world.
Take a quick look at the ingredients in any of the products you’re currently using, and we’re willing to bet there’s some type of acid in at least one of them.
And while all skincare acids share certain attributes—mainly that they all act as chemical exfoliants—by no means are they created equal.
They’re typically categorized into three groups: alpha-hydroxy acids, beta hydroxy acids, and polyhydroxy acids. (More often referred to by their respective acronyms AHAs, BHAs, and PHAs.)
Among the three, however, there’s no denying that AHAs reign supreme.
What are Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs)?
Derived from various plant sources and from milk, alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) are potent acids that help to gently dissolve the bonds of dead skin cells on the surface, making way for visibly smoother, brighter skin.
They’re water-soluble, so they don’t penetrate deep below the skin’s surface, but can help reduce the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and dark spots.
AHAs are essentially a dream for most skin types.
While examples of AHAs include citric, mandelic, and lactic acids, the most famous one is probably glycolic acid.
One of today’s top skin care staples, alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) can help skin look smoother and years younger.
In 1992, Avon Introduced our Iconic Anew Line
This set us apart as the first beauty brand to mass-market anti-aging technology with Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA).
Avon’s pioneering use of AHA became an industry standard and ignited a skin care revolution.
Help improve skin’s surface with our favorite AHA skin treatments.

Improve skin’s clarity, texture, and radiance with Anew AHA Refining Cream, suitable for all skin types.
Featuring a blend of AHAs, antioxidants, and soothing agents, this moisturizing cream helps skin look smoother and more youthful.
In just one week, 91 percent of women saw an improvement in overall skin aging. (Based on those who expressed an opinion in a consumer perception study).
Glycolic Acid Products
Glycolic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid that is used to help skin look smoother and more youthful.
Derived from sugarcane, this potent acid helps target a variety of skin concerns including discoloration and signs of aging.
Of the AHAs, it has the smallest molecules to penetrate the outermost layer of dead skin cells.
Formulas with glycolic acid help minimize the look of fine lines, discoloration, and dullness so skin looks smoother, fresher, and more radiant.
Restore skin’s youthfulness with Anew Clinical Advanced Wrinkle Corrector, featuring glycolic acid to deeply exfoliate the top layer of skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Not only does the plumping formula smooth the look of wrinkles, but it also increases skin’s elasticity, making it one of the best face creams for anti-aging.

Hoping to turn back time and unveil a younger-looking complexion?
There’s an AHA for that.
Not only can these potent, skin-perfecting acids slough off dead, dull skin and keep breakouts at bay, but they also promote collagen production, making them the multitasking skin savior that can simplify your skincare routine.
Over time, AHAs may help to improve skin texture, fade dark spots, and reduce the visible signs of aging.
AHAs can increase sensitivity to UV damage, so be sure to wear sunscreen every day while you are using them.
