Glycolic acid is a plant-derived alpha hydroxy acid. It works by dissolving the bonds between dead skin cells ,so that they can be sloughed away from the surface of the skin. It is a powerful skin exfoliant that works specifically on the surface layer of the dermis to deliver skin that is brighter, younger and fresher looking. Your complexion will look refined and even.
This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun and the possibility of sunburn. We recommend wearing a daily SPF when using products containing glycolic acid.
Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells. It is an accessible skincare step that has the ability to make immediate and remarkable changes to the skin. The outermost layer of the skin is made up of dead skin cells and the process of replacing these cells slows down as we age. This leads to the complexion looking dull and lifeless. Effective daily exfoliation unclogs pores, evens out pigmentations spots, brightens the complexion and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Free acid value is the percentage of the acid which is actually absorbed into the skin. It is agreed that a minimum of 4% (free acid value) is required for noticeable cell turnover. Furthermore, low pH formulations preserve the strength of glycolic acid for optimal efficacy on the skin.
Use the toner morning and evening. Apply it to a cotton pad and sweep over cleansed face, avoiding your eye area.
