What is Glycolic Acid?
Along with lactic acid, glycolic is another alpha hydroxy acid (AHA). It’s actually one of the smallest AHAs, which means it’s more effective at penetrating the top layers of your skin, and it is usually derived from sugarcane.
What are the skincare benefits of Glycolic Acid?
Glycolic acid helps to gently exfoliate the surface layer of your skin and works by dissolving the bonds between dry, dead cells, so that they can be sloughed away. It takes away the need to scrub your skin, which can be abrasive and stripping. It also helps to not only boost the texture and tone of your complexion, but also encourages cell turnover.
It’s one of the most recommended acids for evening out skin tone and reducing pigmentation as it removes dead cells Use of glycolic acid over time as also been shown to thicken your dermis layer of skin, helping to protect your collagen and elastin.
Is Glycolic Acid safe for sensitive skin types?
Glycolic is an acid that encourages chemical exfoliation, so irritation can occur. That said, a lot of people would argue that the skin-boosting benefits outweigh the cons. If you have sensitive skin try introducing glycolic acid into your routine with a cleanser first.
It goes without saying that regardless of your skin type, you need to use sunscreen the morning after you’ve applied glycolic.
What percentage of Glycolic Acid should you use?
If you want to use a glycolic acid regularly at home then opt for a formula with between four to ten percent. This will help to gently exfoliate your skin over time. Anything higher you would go for a professional facial there generally 30% and are amazing!
