Paula's Choice 8% AHA Gel Exfoliant is a exfoliating face gel for all skin types. An ultra-light exfoliating gel that diminishes the appearance of dark spots and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. It's perfect for all skin types. The formula contains Glycolic Acid/AHA, an active ingredient that smoothes and renews the surface of the skin, allowing signs of ageing and especially sun damage to be visibly reduced. Together with panthenol (vitamin B5), it gives the gel humectant properties that enable it to moisturise the skin, improving its feel and appearance. The gel also contains Sodium PCA, a natural skin component and an excellent moisturising agent, which is also used to plump the skin. 8% AHA Gel Exfoliant creates photosensitivity: sun protection with SPF 30 or higher is recommended after use.
How to Use: apply once or twice a day, after cleanser and toner. Apply a coin-sized amount of product to the entire face, including the eye contour (avoid the lower lash line and eyelids). Do not rinse off. For the day, always use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher. If you are using an AHA exfoliant for the first time, introduce it slowly into your routine. Start by applying the exfoliant once every two days and then increase the frequency, applying it once or twice a day, depending on your skin's response.
