As temperatures begin to drop and your time in the sun decreases, you may be wondering ‘what now?’ when it comes to skincare. If you stayed out a little too long in the sun, it may be time to switch up your skincare favorites for products with Malic Acid.
Although ‘Malic Acid‘ may sound a little scary, this ingredient is actually naturally generated when apples metabolize. It’s one of the reasons we decided to use Malic Acid as one of the main ingredients for our Green Apple Brightening Collection. Not to mention it’s also packed full of fabulous age-defy benefits! A study in the American Journal of Dermatology cited apples as being a particularly rich source of alpha hydroxy acids, which can help with the appearance of sun damaged skin.
At Juice Beauty, we obtain our malic acid from organic green apples that can provide a high antioxidant, phytonutrient, polyphenol, and bioflavonoid content. This alpha hydroxy acid is a powerful yet hydrating exfoliator for the skin. So the effect for your skin of using products high in Malic Acid is that you’ll effectively (yet safely) boost exfoliation and the rich antioxidant levels will help combat free radicals that occurs from sun damage and aging.
Here’s how to reset your post-sun skin with products that feature Malic Acid:
- Step One – Cleanse: Juice Beauty’s Green Apple Brightening Cleanser will help reveal a more refined looking complexion.
