Isntree Clear Skin 8% AHA Essence is a Korean skincare product designed to exfoliate the skin and improve its texture. AHA stands for Alpha Hydroxy Acid, which is a group of acids that are effective in removing dead skin cells, unclogging pores, and smoothing the skin’s surface.The product contains 8% AHA, which is a concentration that is considered to be effective but gentle enough for regular use. The AHA in the formula is derived from natural sources, including glycolic acid, lactic acid, and mandelic acid.The product is suitable for all skin types, but it is particularly beneficial for those with dull, rough, or uneven skin texture. It can also be helpful for reducing the appearance of dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and acne scars.To use, simply apply a small amount of the essence to a cotton pad or your fingertips and gently pat it onto your face and neck, avoiding the eye area. It is recommended to use it in the evening, 2-3 times a week, gradually increasing the frequency as tolerated. As with all AHA products, it is important to wear sunscreen during the day, as AHAs can increase skin sensitivity to the sun.
