Effect of long-term use of AHA

AHA an acronym for alpha hydroxy acid, is commonly known to renew, brighten and firm up the skin. What AHA does is to prompt the skin ability to renews its cell at a fast rate by disbanding the bond between oil and dead cells in the skin. Therefore, AHA can treat skin concerns such as acne, protect the skin against further age spots, reduce signs of aging and much more.

Although AHA is effective and it’s result instant, the long term effect that comes with AHA is in prolonged usage. Continuous usage can cause discoloration of skin, hyperpigmentation especially in skin with more melanin, and other skin disorder. This is why Ekhambee developed a natural prevention for middle-aged African American to remove the appearance of dull skin, blemishes, hide and prevent age spots, etc without AHAs.
