How to use
When using an AHA exfoliant for the first time, introduce it into your routine slowly. Start by using your exfoliant once every other day, and then increase usage to once or twice daily based on your skin’s response.
Massage onto clean skin in gentle circular motions. May be used daily or applied only to dry areas as often as needed. If using with an additional moisturiser, apply this treatment first and adjust amount used based on personal preference. For daytime use, wear under a Paula's Choice sunscreen.
What are the key ingredients?
This plant lipid, extracted from the karite tree, is used as an emollient and has smoothing properties for dry skin. it’s also a rich source of antioxidants.
Green Tea Extract
Possesses potent antioxidant and skin-soothing properties and has impressive research in terms of its many benefits for skin, including anti-ageing properties.
Can help shed dead skin cells to renew skin’s surface, visibly softening signs of ageing, particularly from sun damage. Can act as a water-binding agent.

Good to know before you start using your exfoliant.
It is best to gradually build up use of an AHA product. Start by using your exfoliant once every other day and then increase usage to once or twice daily based on your skin’s response. You need to experiment a bit to see what suits your skin best. During the day, always use a moisturiser with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater. Your skin will in fact be slightly more sensitive to sunlight when using an exfoliant, so the chance of sunburn and sun damage is slightly higher.
How is Paula's Choice Skin Revealing Body Lotion with 10% AHA different from the 8% Alpha Hydroxy Acid Gel? Do I need both?
The two major differences between these exfoliants are that the Skin Revealing Body Lotion is in a creamy moisturising base while the 8% AHA Gel has a fluid, gel base. The concentration of glycolic acid is the other main difference, with the Skin Revealing Body Lotion containing 10% AHA and being designed for use from the neck down. Both AHA products are formulated within the pH range needed to exfoliate dry, sun-damaged skin.
Can I use Skin Revealing Body Lotion with 10% AHA on my face?
Although the formula has been developed for the body, it is also possible to use it on your face. If you have used AHA products (formulated in an acidic pH range to allow for exfoliation) on your face without irritation, you should be able to use Skin Revealing Body Lotion too.
