AHA and BHA
AHAs (alpha-hydroxy acids) and BHA (beta hydroxy acid), or fruit acids are exfoliated chemicals that remove dead skin cells on the surface of the skin. They are used for a decade by dermatologists to do, what is called a peel, which removes the top layer of the skin by stimulating cell renewal and collagen synthesis and Elastin (these two elements form the main matrix of the skin), which reveals a completely new skin.
Peeling gives a fresh and a super smooth, brighter, softer, more toned and elastic, skin.

Hyaluronic acid is a kind of polymer obtained by bacterial fermentation. It is found naturally in the skin (called the matrix polysaccharides). It is a fundamental substance of the skin, which acts by filling the space between the other elements thereof. It fills in the spaces by binding large quantities of water. This acts as a filler in the natural skin.
Hyaluronic acid is an almost identical imitation which creates the same effect. Synthetic polymers reproduce the matrix of polysaccharides in water swelling. The hyaluronic acid spheres will swell in contact with water and retain a large amount, which remains in the epidermis. The epidermis, being super hydrated, looks plumper and less withered, which decreases the appearance of surface lines and wrinkles.
