Glycolic acid is a well-known AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid), as others might refer to as a chemical exfoliator. This ingredient is a strong ally for any skin type that suffers from hyperpigmentation, dryness and acne and that presents signs of aging (such as fine lines and wrinkles). When used correctly, after introducing it in your skincare routine, you’ll notice a huge improvement in your skin, as its exfoliating action improves the penetration of other skincare ingredients, which potentiates your skincare routine. But take your time! Like any other AHA, time is needed for your skin to get used to it. And don’t forget: when using this ingredient, make sure to always use your favorite SPF, as it makes your skin more sensitive to UV rays. If you have sensitive skin, lactic acid is a great alternative to glycolic acid. Now you’re ready to discover our favorite skincare products that contain this amazing ingredient!
