For those looking to smooth out their skin texture and achieve a more radiant glow, glycolic may be the skin-saving element missing from your skincare routine.
Glycolic is an ingredient proven to boost the skin.
It achieves amazing results for many skin concerns, including:
- acne-prone skin
- sun-damaged skin
- dull skin
- uneven skin tone
- dry skin
- fine lines and wrinkles
With so many skin benefits, it just might be time you considered going glycolic?
How Does Glycolic Acid Work?
Glycolic Acid is an alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) naturally derived fruit acid obtained from sugarcane. It may also be made synthetically.
Glycolic acid rapid exfoliates away the dead, dry skin cells that are clogging up the skin’s surface, making way for softer, smoother newer skin cells.
As it sloths away the old, follicles of the skin are cleansed and pores are unclogged. Plus everyone’s favourite anti-ageing protein collagen is stimulated. All good stuff for every skin, no matter your age.
Evens Skin Tone
While glycolic acid is known for anti-aging, it is also scientifically proven to even out skin tone on sun-damaged skin.
Which means that are sun lovers and have succumbed to the occasional sunspot, pigmentation or have age spots on their skin will love glycolic acid’s ability to even out skin tone.
For those living with acne, and battling skin concerns such as blackheads and whiteheads, glycolic acid is the master skin-clearing weapon.
As this AHA buffs away dead skin, it also unclogs pores and destroys the nasty Propionibacterium, the bacteria that builds up on the skin and causes all forms of acne.
Assists Collagen Production
Glycolic acid stimulates collagen production, that wonderful protein that is the key to younger, firmer skin.
Collagen is the skin-strengthening essence of the plumpness and firmness to our skin, and as we age, our body naturally produces less and less of this essential skin-firming protein.
Which is why glycolic acid is such a wonderful tool in the fight against ageing.
Study after study has shown that by using this AHA, we can encourage our skin to increase collagen production.
This is particularly so for those of us who are fair-skinned and light-haired.
Glycolic acid can stimulate collagen production to restructure the skin, creating thicker, more radiant skin which softens fine lines and wrinkles.
The true benefit of glycolic acid is that it can be applied to the skin in different strengths, allowing an experienced skin technician to customize your skin rejuvenating chemical peel treatment.
