Can cosmetics with acids be used in the summer?

If you’ve been using creams and going for cavasmi treatments for a long time, you probably already know everything from the effects of using acids in the summer to the need to use sunscreen. However, take a moment and see if we can’t surprise you with something.

Action of acid

Of course, each acid has different properties, they are used for different purposes, and concentrations are adjusted to suit. However, the primary task of acids is to stimulate cell renewal and exfoliate dead skin. Thanks to this procedure, the layer of dead tissue – an ideal breeding ground for bacteria – is kept to a minimum. When there is more living tissue, our face is more radiant, looks healthier and younger.

However, the drawback of this action is that the skin becomes thinner and thus more sensitive to external factors. Cosmetologists have been warning for years to use high sun protection for the day when using products with acids at home. What’s more – acid-based treatments are not performed by most (at least recommended by us) surgeries during the summer, when the risks are greatest.

What are the effects of sun exposure despite acid treatment?

Acid-treated skin is very sensitive and quite thin, and is adversely affected by UV radiation even when no acids are used. Going out in the sun despite warnings risks getting burned. UVB will cause damage much faster than usual. In critical cases, the healing of a burn can leave us with scars.

Another risk associated with sun exposure after acids is significant deterioration of the skin – graying and even discoloration.

We warn you once again – hyperpigmentation acquired in this way cannot be combated with cosmetics, and often even aesthetic medicine has problems with it.

Are there safe acids for summer?

Happily, the answer is – yes! There are acids that in a certain concentration are safe even in the middle of summer.

Mandelic acid is as safe as it is versatile. It combines anti-wrinkle and moisturizing effects. Thanks to its effective regulation of sebum overproduction, it is an ingredient highly valued by people with oily and problematic skin. Reducing the amount of sebum on the surface of the skin reduces the risk of blackheads. It is worth mentioning that it is very well tolerated by all skin types.

Lactic acid – belongs to the AHA acids. Depending on the concentration used, it exhibits different properties. In lower concentrations, it is a moisturizing ingredient. In the higher one it is used for peels that are strong in action. In addition, it regulates the pH of the skin, has antibacterial and anti-aging properties.


City SUN – a sunscreen for daily use. It can be used instead of a day cream. It effectively protects against harmful UV and Blue Light, further moisturizing the skin.

Hydratore – is a day and night cream with a 5% concentration of mandelic acid. A favorite of those with problematic and acne-prone skin. Light in texture, and effectively moisturizes and regulates sebum secretion. It can be safely used all year round, but we recommend nevertheless

NMF xpress – a highly moisturizing treatment. Its component is a scrub containing lactic acid at a concentration of 50%. The treatment is year-round, but as always, photoprotection is recommended!
