GET YOUR GLOW ON WITH GLYCOLIC ACID (BLOGMAS – DAY EIGHTEEN)

I know the idea of putting anything acidic ANYWHERE near your skin might seem terrifying but here me out!

Glycolic Acid (which is a chemical exfoliant known as an alpha hydroxy acid AKA ‘AHA’) is your go to skincare ingredient to tackle breakouts, pigmentation and texture. It’s not a magic potion (but pretty damn close!).

First and foremost, Glycolic Acid is your guy if you want to exfoliate away dead skin cells to reveal a brand new, brighter you!

A naturally occuring ingredient you’ll find in the likes of pineapple, sugar cane and cantaloupe that is just the ticket if you suffer with a dull complexion. Hello mum life! Lack of sleep and constant stress. This is just the pick up you need.

Glycolic Acid is the strongest AHA as well as being absolutely tiny meaning that it can penetrate the skin on a deeper level and really get to work. Those small molecules really know their stuff!

By stimulating collagen production you skin will feel firmer, plumper and more youthful! Not to mention smoother and overall more radiant. A major advantage of glycolic acid is that it can help you tackle signs of aging, such as lines and wrinkles, which lets be honest it’s the be all and end all but sure is a nice touch?

Glycolic Acid is best used as part of your evening skincare routine as it has a tendency to make the skin sensitive to sunlight. I’d still recommend applying SPF in the AM though. It should always be a permanent fixture in your routine, regardless of the season, SPF is a must!

So, anyway…how does that sound?
