Find your youthful glow with glycolic acid

Glycolic acid is an alpha-hydroxy acid with a myriad of benefits for all skin types. With the smallest particle size of all the AHAs (alpha-hydroxy acids), glycolic acid is able to effectively penetrate the upper layers of the skin. Here, it works to break down bonds between skin cells so they are easily exfoliated away to reveal fresher, newer skin beneath.

Here’s what glycolic acid can do for your skincare routine:

  • Exfoliate dead skin cellsGlycolic acid is known for its ability to gently slough off dead skin cells. Promote cell turnover and unmask a more radiant and fresh complexion.
  • Refine textures — Want to say goodbye to uneven skin texture? Treat your skin to some glycolic acid. It works its magic to smoothen your skin’s surface, leaving it irresistibly soft to the touch.
  • Fight fine lines — Feel a few years younger with glycolic acid for skin care. It targets fine lines and wrinkles for a plumper and revitalised appearance.
  • Minimise pores — Looking to refine your pores? A dab of glycolic acid might just do the trick. This nourishing ingredient can prevent the buildup of excess oil and dead skin cells, helping you stay away from blackheads and other blemishes.

What is glycolic acid and its benefits for the skin?

Glycolic acid is a genie in a bottle. It’s an alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) that helps exfoliate, brighten and rejuvenate your complexion. It’s your weapon against dullness, uneven texture and other signs of ageing!

Are there specific skin types that benefit more from glycolic acid?

Good news — glycolic acid is a friend to all! Whether you have oily, dry, sensitive or a combination skin type, this versatile ingredient can be a great addition to your skincare essentials.

What are the potential side effects of using glycolic acid?

Glycolic acid is generally safe, but even the best duos can have a moment. If you experience a little tingling or a touch of redness, don’t panic. It’s your skin’s way of saying you’re using a product too much, too fast. Try reducing the amount or the frequency of use as your skin gets accustomed to glycolic acid. Just take it slow, pamper your skin and let the glow reveal itself in time.

How should I incorporate glycolic acid into my skincare routine?

Start slow and apply it a few times a week, after you cleanse and tone but right before you moisturise your skin. If you have sensitive skin, do a patch test to see how you’ll react to glycolic acid. If you’re unsure, give us a nudge and we’d gladly send you some tips on how to use our skincare products.
