Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 8% AHA Lotion



Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 8% AHA Lotion is a creamy, hydrating exfoliant specially created for drier skin types. It improves fine lines and dark spots giving you radiant, younger-looking skin.

Why you need it:
Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 8% AHA Lotion is an ideal anti-ageing exfoliator. It's been created especially created for dry skin and moisturises as it exfoliates, sweeping away dead skin cells to restore youthful radiance. Dark spots and pigmentation are reduced, fine lines are smoothed, and skin looks younger and more even-toned. 

Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 8% AHA Lotion contains 8% Glycolic Acid to exfoliate skin by breaking down the bonds that hold dead cells to the skin's surface, revealing the brighter, younger-looking skin underneath. The formula is also rich in Vitamin E, a powerful Anti-Oxidant that helps to combat premature ageing while hydrating and healing skin. A range of soothing skin conditioners including Glycerin, Panthenol (Vitamin B5) and Allantoin work to keep skin calmed and hydrated while Chamomile Flower Extract reduces irritation.  

Always wear daytime SPF when using products containing Glycolic Acid as they can make skin more sensitive to the sun.

Skin type:
Normal to Dry and Very Dry skin types

Free from:
Fragrance-free, Colourant-free, Cruelty free.

How to use:
After cleansing and toning, apply 1-2 pumps evenly over face and neck, avoiding the immediate eye area. There's no need to rinse. Follow with your preferred serum and/or moisturiser, and always follow with SPF during the daytime. 

If you haven't used products containing AHAs/Glycolic Acid before, you might like to build up usage gradually to reduce the risk of sensitivity. Start by using Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 8% AHA Lotion once every 2 or 3 days, gradually increasing to every day. If you experience any irritation, reduce frequency of use. This product can be used up to twice a day if needed.
