This week we’re learning more about Glycolic Acid and why you should be including it in your skincare routine. 

What is Glycolic Acid?

Glycolic Acid is derived from sugar cane. Of all the AHAs, Glycolic Acid’s structure is the simplest and smallest, this is why it’s so good at penetrating your skin. 

What are the benefits of using Glycolic Acid?

Exfoliation 

One of the most commonly known benefits of Glycolic Acid are its exfoliating properties. It aims to remove the uppermost layer of skin, buffing away dead skin cells to reveal fresh skin beneath. This helps to leave your skin soft and illuminated.

Collagen Production 

Glycolic Acid helps to stimulate collagen production in the skin. This contributes to reducing signs of ageing by improving skin elasticity and smoothing out signs of wrinkles and fine lines.

Anti Ageing

Because it is able to penetrate deep into the skin, Glycolic Acid works to fight signs of ageing. It can help with hydration which consequently aims to brighten up skin tone and complexion.

Acne Prevention

Glycolic Acid has been shown to fight a range of blemish and acne related issues. This is because it works to unclog pores, which is particularly helpful for cystic acne sufferers. Its exfoliating properties also help to ‘break down’ cells involved in scarring, reducing their appearance.
