Glycolic Acid for Skin
As skin ages, it experiences a natural loss of moisture and a slowdown in the cell turnover cycle, causing excess dead skin cells to clog pores and result in breakouts. Derived from sugar cane, Glycolic acid helps facilitate skin’s natural exfoliation and eliminate dead skin cell buildup to improve skin's complexion and texture.
Most effective when layered, glycolic acid is available in different forms, such as glycolic acid cleansers, glycolic acid toners and glycolic acid serums. Regular use of glycolic acid for skin can be beneficial, but with any exfoliant, it is best to gradually increase usage. Pair this with SkinCeuticals Glycolic Brightening Renewal overnight, a corrective cream, and a broad-spectrum mineral sunscreen such as SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50 to complete your skincare routine.
