AHAGlow is one of the very few face wash options in India that have AHA. Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) exfoliate the skin, keeping skin pores unclogged, thereby preventing acne breakouts.
AHAglow has 1% AHA, which is good enough for daily maintenance of acne if you are using other acne treatments alongside. Because of its exfoliation action (you may see skin peeling), AHAGlow also evens out the skin over time (give it 2 months), reducing dark pimple marks and acne scarring. AHAGlow also has aloe vera and vitamin E, in a non-comedogenic gel base. What’s not to like?
The best part? You can use AHAGlow as a spot treatment of acne. Dab a bit of the transparent gel on a newly-forming pimple or cyst and it will most likely subside without leaving a dark spot behind. AHAGlow kind of calms the pimple without bringing it to a white pus-filled head, so you minimize chances of scarring. Do not leave it on for over an hour or so, otherwise you risk irritation and spot darkening.
AHAGlow lives up to its AHA claim. Just don’t expect any Glow and you will be fine. AHAGlow reduces the redness caused by pimples, likely due to its 5% aloe vera content. The price of AHAGlow face wash is Rs. 107 for 50ml. AHAGlow is available at medical stores – ask for Torrent Pharma AHAGlow.
Limit using AHAGlow to once a day to avoid the risk of skin over-drying and peeling. If you need to wash your face more than once a day, use a milder face wash for the rest of the times.
