Is Glycolic Acid Really Necessary?
Yes, you do. It does more than just exfoliate…
What is a Glycolic Acid?
Glycolic acid is a fundamental ingredient in a complete skin care maintenance program that will keep your skin healthy throughout the years. Derived from sugar cane, it is the most beneficial Alpha-Hydroxy-Acid (AHAs) used in skin care.
On the surface, Glycolic Acid “unglues” the dead skin cells for gentle exfoliation. As it has the smallest molecular structure of all Alpha-Hydroxy acids (AHAs), Glycolic Acid has the greatest penetration potential. Inside the cell, it stimulates the collagen and elastin fibers in the dermis, improving the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and other forms of sun damage.
Why use a product with Glycolic Acid?
Much more than just exfoliation.
Some Benefits of Glycolic Acid are:
- Exfoliates the epidermis
- Increases collagen production in the dermis
- Increases the water content of the skin for a more youthful appearance.
Depending on how it is used, Glycolic Acids can make retinols less effective or cause irritation to the skin, so it is important to know when and how to use products with Glycolic Acid.
