Glycolic acid is a type of alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) that is a great ingredient to add to your routine. It is known for its exfoliating properties, making it a desired ingredient. Glycolic acid works by breaking down the bonds between dead skin cells, allowing them to be easily removed from the surface of the skin.
One of the main benefits of glycolic acid is its ability to improve the texture and appearance of the skin. It can help to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, fade dark spots, discoloration, and hyperpigmentation, and reduce the appearance of acne scars. Glycolic acid also helps to unclog pores, which can reduce the occurrence of breakouts and blackheads.
Our "goodnight glow" toner is a great option if you are looking to include this ingredient in your routine. We recommend to use after cleansing and before moisturizing, it can help to remove any remaining dead skin cells and impurities.
However, it is important to use glycolic acid carefully, as it can cause skin irritation and sensitivity. We recommend doing a skin test and only use it twice a week. Additionally, it is important to always wear sunscreen when using glycolic acid, as it can increase the skin's sensitivity to the sun.
Overall, glycolic acid can be a beneficial addition to a skincare routine, but it is important to use it carefully and as directed. It can provide various benefits such as smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles, fading dark spots, discoloration, and hyperpigmentation, reducing the appearance of acne scars, unclogging pores, and can reduce the occurrence of breakouts and blackheads too!
