Acids 101: Which Acid Is Right for You?

Your skin on acid might easily be your best skin ever: For each and every skin concern, there's an acid—and a distinct U Beauty hero—to fix it. From alpha-hydroxy to fatty acids, find out which superstar ingredient is right for you: 

The Concern: Fine Lines + Wrinkles
The Solution: Lactic Acid
A powerful alpha-hydroxy acid worthy of the body’s tougher-to-treat skin, the Resurfacing Body Compound harnesses lactic acid to combat signs of aging. 


The Concern: Frail Skin
The Solution: Linoleic Acid
Skin looking dull, dry, or uneven? Enter this anti-inflammatory fatty acid, via The BARRIER Bioactive Treatment, which fortifies and locks in moisture for a stronger barrier.

The Concern: Clogged Pores + Collagen Loss
The Solution: Glycolic Acid
This multitasker works overtime to exfoliate, decongest pores, and even boost collagen production, making it one of the Resurfacing Compound’s power players.

The Concern: Skin Laxity
The Solution: Stearic Acid
The SCULPT Arm Compound utilizes this emollient acid to bolster your skin’s structure, protecting against water loss and combating signs of loose, sagging skin.
