Dr Granite talks Acids with Stylist

Dr Granite talks Acids with Stylist

Monday, March 19, 2018

Consultant Dermatologist Dr Alexis Granite is featured in Stylist in a no frills guide to understanding acids in skincare.

Previously, acids were mainly used by facialists and dermatologists, but they have grown in popularity amongst consumers who seek them for the effective results. However, navigating the field of acids can be very confusing for beauty enthusiasts. 

Dr Granite shares her expertise on Azelaic acid, which ‘helps to reduce pigmentation by inhibiting an enzyme called tyrosinase, which is involved in the production of melanin – the pigment that gives skin its colour. It’s also antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and has antimicrobial properties that work well for mild rosacea and acne.’

Dr Granite discusses what Azelaic acid does, how it works, who should use it and how it should be used.

Practicing at the top of her industry, Dr Granite is passionate about evidence-based skincare and sharing her knowledge on beauty and medical dermatology.
