Every woman dreams of having beautiful, radiant skin, and department stores are filled with dainty bottles of lotions and potions, all beautifully designed and marketed to give you just that, perfect skin. Some work better than others, and i’ve personally always felt that a good complexion is at everyone’s reach, as long as a persistent routine is employed and, most importantly, one gets familiar with the science behind the product in order to make a sound and rational purchase. With that in mind, I’ll dwell on one of my favourite products, REN Resurfacing AHA Concentrate. I’ve always loved the brand, not only due to its minimal, fashion-forward packaging but also because it goes straight to the jugular when it comes to skincare technology, whilst still maintaining its green credentials (‘ren’ means ‘clean’ in Swedish, and the brand declines the usage of parabens, sulphates, mineral oil, synthetic colours, and many other nasties). ALPHA HIDROXY ACIDS (AHAs) The name of the game with this serum is its use of Alpha Hidroxy Acids (AHAs), which deliver a brighter looking complexion by removing dead cells on the epidermis, revealing the fresh new skin underneath . It differs from mechanical exfoliation – such as in products with granules – in the way it can be used by most skin types (including ones with sensitivity issues) and you can cater the process to your individual needs by increasing or diminishing the frequence of use (having acne-prone oily skin, I use it daily to promote skin cell turnover). Although AHA technology has been around since my childhood, the one in this product – containing a complex of Glycolic, Lactic, Tartaric and Citric Acids from natural ingredients such as Pineapple, Passion Fruit, Lemon and Grape – is definitely softer on the skin than its older counterparts, whilst delivering amazing results indeed. HOW TO APPLY It all depends on your skin requirements. For oilier skins, this product can be used on a daily basis, but if it is on the drier side of the spectrum, do use it less frequently. After washing, apply one pipette of this serum onto face, neck and décolleté. It may sting slightly during the first applications, but that comes with the territory when using a chemical peel and it wears off in a few days. After two weeks of persistent use, pore size and fine lines are visibly reduced, and skin’s overall look and feel is rested, radiant, and renewed. As a plus, all other products will work so much better now that your skin is rid of its clogging debris. THE BOTTOM LINE A 10 out of 10 product, well worth its £30 value (for 30 ml). Go get it, and enjoy your brand new beautiful skin!
