Minimalist PHA 3% + Biotic Toner Review

PHA or polyhydroxy acid is a new exfoliating ingredient which has gained popularity in the skincare industry. There are very few brands in the Indian market which use PHA in their products.  Minimalist have come up with their own PHA and biotic toner . Polyhydroxy acids are very gentle in order to exfoliate the dead skin cell layers of the skin. It helps in getting  a clear complexion by removing the debris and unclogging pores. Many brands use various ingredients for exfoliation such as alpha hydroxy acids, beta hydroxy acid, lipohydroxy acid etc.  People who have sensitive skin and are reluctant to use AHA or BHA can try PHA in their skincare as it is gentle enough for sensitive skin and for beginners. Coming to the product details- What does the product say- This is a daily gentle exfoliating toner which contains gluconolactone (PHA), a gentle ingredient to remove dead skin cell layer and act as a humectant. The product is formulated with prebiotics and probiotics which

Minimalist Multi Peptide Serum Review

Peptides are made up of two or more amino acids which are the building block of proteins.  Collagen is naturally present in our body which is made up of polypeptides. As we grow older the collagen starts depleting which can result in presenting the signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles. Adding a topical peptide serum or moisturiser in your daily skincare routine can delay these signs while promoting a healthy and youthful skin. Whenever you want to incorporate any topical peptide product in your skincare routine always invest in a good leave on product rather than wash off products. The reason behind it is that leave on products are there in contact with the skin for a longer period of time helping to show results more effectively. In today's post I am sharing my views on the Multi Peptide Serum by Minimalist . Minimalist is an Indian skincare and hair care brand that has come up with affordable serums and moisturisers with a good percentage of actives in them
