I have done several posts about or including products by London-based skincare company Bravura. One of my favourite beauty brands, Bravura offer high end skin care at high-street prices. There is no compromise on ingredients or formulation and all the packaging is beautifully chic.
A cruelty free company created by a beauty blogger with a focus on exfoliation and resurfacing acids. One of their stand out lines is most definitely there three acid peels.
Glycolic (infused with lavender)
Glycolic acid is also known as an AHA or Alpha Hydroxy Acid and is one of the more common acids used in skin care. It is claimed to help reduce acne, pigmentation, dry skin, age spots, fine lines and wrinkles. Glycolic is particularly good for more mature skins as it encourages the production of collagen. It is one of the stronger acids and it is recommended it is use sparingly on sensitive skins.
Lactic acid (with added rose oil)
Also AHA, lactic acid has similar benefits as glycolic however is much more gentle therefore a better option for those with sensitive skin. Another factor that sets lactic acid apart from glycolic is its moisture retaining properties. Lactic acid is a known humectant meaning it attracts and retains moisture making it preferable for dry and dehydrated skin.
Different to AHA, salicylic is a BHA meaning it works on a deeper level to get into the pores to reduce congestion and clear out black heads. It also works to reduce oil production therefore working as a preventative measure targetting spots and blocked pores. Other benefits of salicylic acid include its anti-inflammatory properties, collagen stimulating properties and is less of an irritant than glycolic meaning it’s also a good option for sensitive skins.
