Glycolic Acid in Beauty Products
Glycolic acid is the simplest one of the alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA) and is commonly found in fruit and sugary plants (such as sugarcane). Its small molecules help it penetrate the skin with ease, which is why it’s the most often used hydroxy acid in skin-care products. Glycolic acid is mainly used for chemical peels in dermatological treatments as well as cosmetics for home use. This is down to its exceptional ability to smooth out wrinkles or acne scars and generally correct the skin’s appearance. It’s also used to whiten the pigment in case of hyperpigmentation and other skin conditions.
Characteristics of Glycolic Acid
Glycolic acid reduces the cohesiveness of cells in your skin to prevent the formation of calloused layers. It’s a natural chemical peel and easily binds large amounts of water to the cells, leaving the skin soft and perfectly hydrated.
Effects of Glycolic Acid on Skin
- It regenerates and hydrates the skin and evens out skin tone.
- It helps smooth out wrinkles, promotes collagen production and generally reduces signs of ageing.
- It reduces the visibility of acne scars and hyperpigmentation.
- It combats acne and blackheads, plus it significantly tightens pores.
- It helps combat stretch marks because its exfoliating effects quickly remove dead skin cells and improve the overall texture of your skin.
Glycolic Acid in Cosmetics
Glycolic acid really has numerous amazing benefits, which is why it’s so often used in skin care hair care and body care including anti-stretch mark products or makeup. Using glycolic acid is very beneficial for the skin and completely safe – however, if your skin is oversensitive, you should first consult your dermatologist about using products that contain this ingredient.
Treat yourself to a gentle glycolic acid peel today! Try a rejuvenating glycolic cream, exfoliating serum, intense overnight ampoules against hyperpigmentation, or an anti-acne glycolic acid toner, and enjoy having beautifully soft, clear and unified skin.
