What is glycolic acid, anyway?
– Belonging to the alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) family ― along with malic and lactic acids ― its main function is to exfoliate the skin, ungluing dead cells from each other.
It’s really great for acne-prone skin.
Glycolic has the ability to really get down into the hair follicles and loosen up any built-up sebum and proteins
It also has plenty of anti-aging benefits.
Those same dead skin cells that can stick together and clog pores, leading to acne, can also make our skin look less vibrant. As kids and teenagers, our cell turnover happens quite rapidly. In simple terms, the extra pigment we get from old acne scars, age spots, sun damage or melasma is stored for weeks in our dead cell layer. Glycolic helps to even out overall skin tone.
Oh, and it also makes your other products absorb better.
The exfoliating properties of glycolic acid make it great for prepping the skin for other products.
