Mandelic Acid Acne Treatment

One of the remedies considered "natural" to fight acne and pimples is certainly represented by 'mandelic acid. It is a natural product extracted from the almonds. Unlike the 'glycolic acid, is not tolerated by all skin types and particularly irritating, mandelic what is "lighter".

The function is always the same, that of acting as mild skin exfoliant, a peeling remove for the top layer of the skin and thereby reduce scarring and marks left by an acne particularly difficult. As mentioned mandelic acid derived from bitter almonds and is part of the family of alpha hydroxy acids.

Most of the alpha hydroxy acids are particularly harsh on the skin, their use the reddens and irritates. The mandelic acid is different from the other acids because its molecules have a larger size and therefore is much slower to penetrate nelgli lower layers of the skin, ie, 'allows a more uniform treatment.

  Mandelic acid is a wonderful ingredient to fight acne in adults for its antibacterial properties. Bacteria in fact, present in the clogged pores are the main cause of the formation of acne and pimples, pustules and points blacks.

  The mandelic acid provides an excellent peeling effect, freeing the skin surface by debris, bacteria and dead skin cells which often clog the pores. You can buy it in pharmacies and herbal medicine, the higher the concentration, the greater the "effective" for a deeper exfoliation. After treatment with mandelic acid is recommended not to expose themselves to sunlight for at least 15 days.
