I heard AHA ingredient contained products, if applied in the morning, can actually darken the skin. Is that true?

Thanks! Rolling Eyes

I've not heard this but then I always apply my AHA at night anyway. I think you can definitely use it during the day, but you MUST wear a good sunscreen. Actually, you should no matter what time of day you use an AHA.

I've used a moisturizer which contains AHA (LP Skin Caviar Luxe Cream) during the day without any problems before although I suspect the percentage of AHA to be really low. However, I always wear a good sunscreen. It's a must whether I use a moisturizer with AHA or not.

I wouldnt use it during the day. I heard you shouldnt as it can make you more sensitive to the sun.

AHA will cause the skin to be sun sensitive. Just make sure to apply sunscreen during the day Smile

I've heard this too...AHA will make skin more sensitive to the sun.

Personally, I wouldn't wear it during the day since we are all already having such a fight with the sun as it is.

AHA is "phototoxic" which can increase the risk of sunburn.

Thanks for sharing!

Andaman_gypsy, actually I had this LP sin caviar luxe cream. It has some little shining sparkle but it worked not a thing on me. And it is a little flaky which gives me an illusion whether it is a exfoliator. Do you have the same experience? Now I have given it away to a friend who is a little older than me.

Still own a few eye essense and cream from LP. Still not working. So expensive stuff doesnt always work wonder! Mad

I thought you can use AHA day and night. But anyway do not forget to wear good sunscreen.
