About fine lines and wrinkles

mandelic acid stimulates collagen and elastin to reduce fine lines and wrinkles

Almond Clear can noticeably improve the appearance of aging skin. With consistent application over time, you’ll see a decrease in fine lines, an increase in the skin’s firmness, and your skin will develop a youthful, healthy-looking glow. 

Fine lines and wrinkles are decreased because mandelic acid stimulates the skin to produce collagen and elastin. These two proteins naturally occur in the skin and are responsible for keeping it taught and plump. As we age, both collagen and elastin decrease, leading to wrinkles and sagging skin. With the increased collagen and elastin levels that MA stimulates, the skin appears smoother and fine lines are less obvious. 

Mandelic acid application also helps to firm the skin. A recent dermatological study found that when mandelic acid is applied once daily over a period of four weeks, skin elasticity and firmness are both measurably improved. After a few weeks of nightly applications, you’ll notice your skin looking more taught and plump.

Almond Clear also helps to create a youthful glow by creating turnover in dead skin cells. As we age, our skin repairs and replaces itself more slowly. Old skin cells remain on the surface of the skin for longer periods of time, and these dehydrated cells can appear dull and heavy. Mandelic acid exfoliates the skin, causing your body to generate new, healthy, and plump skin cells. These fresh skin cells are fully hydrated and reflect the light more than the older, dry cells, so your skin takes on a vibrant, healthy glow similar to a mild suntan. 

Many Almond Clear users first start using the serums to clear up acne, but once they see how it makes their skin appear more youthful, they’re hooked. One Almond Clear reviewer summed up this experience perfectly:

“Okay, I realize that most people use this for acne, but what they don't say is that it is amazing for wrinkles too! I originally used this to clear up chest acne, but when I ended up applying it to my face, within a week it was wild how my wrinkles started getting less obvious. In fact, I hadn't considered trying to get rid of wrinkles, I was just going to age with dignity and embrace them, but now I can never go back. Don't start this if you don't want to get addicted, but do start if you're excited to get addicted for good reason. I might be in for life.” - Lota. Portland, Oregon
