Incorporating glycolic acid into your skincare routine could be the easiest way to glowing, and youthful-looking skin. This miraculous ingredient can tackle hyperpigmentation, dullness, and signs of skin aging, such as lines and wrinkles… Find out more about glycolic acid and what exactly makes it such a wonderful ingredient.

Benefits of glycolic acid for skin

Glycolic acid is a chemical exfoliant, a type of alpha-hydroxy acid (or AHA) that’s derived from sugar cane. Among all other AHAs (lactic, citric, and malic), glycolic acid has the smallest particle size with the simplest structure. It’s so small that it can easily penetrate the skin where it can do wonders. Glycolic acid is best for normal, combination, and oily skin types.

Key benefits are:

•           Brighten skin and reduce blemishes

•           Prevent breakout by unclogging pores

•           Minimize appearance of wrinkles

•           Prep skin for better absorption

How to use glycolic acid in your skincare routine?

From face washes to toners to chemical peels, glycolic acid can be found in different kinds of skincare products. Glycolic acid should always be applied in the evening, as it can make our skin sensitive to the sun, and make sure that you use SPF in the morning.
