2. AHA: The Fruit Acid Face Mask
Spas are fronting the fruit acid trend which promises to improve the appearance of skin without using hard elements such as salt, beads or sugar to get a smooth finish. The 'milkshake masks' contain Alpha-Hydroxy Acid – a natural element found in fruit and milk that boosts collagen, exfoliates and hydrates. So how does it work? AHA loosens the bonds between dead skin cells and the skin itself, causing the damaged layer to fall off gently with no friction needed – just like a face mask.
