I am 50 yrs old . I have dry skin & a tendency to have dry red spots after using AHA . what is the difference between the sugar skin scrub & the AHA product ? is it the same things as far as exfoliating the skin ?

Scrub is basically an mild exfoliating cleanser, while AHA product is left on the skin for a long time (unless it's a peel) and exfoliates mainlly due to its acidity. For most people, sugar scrub is less irritating than AHA. The scrub may not exfoliate as much as some strong AHA products, but if your skin is sensitive you may need only mild exfolition anyway.

For those who respond well to AHA, the scrub is unlikely to provide all of the same benefits in terms of reducng lines. But many people do not respond to AHA, and some develop irritation or dry skin.
