Glycolic Acid: This ingredient in numerous skin care products has long been a top seller at many spas and dermatology clinics. You can easily utilize this product at home to vamp up your skin care routine – you just need to know what it does before you start incorporating. This product, when used correctly, is safe and will yield fabulous results including softer skin, smoother look, improved texture and tone, and reduced hyperpigmentation.

Top 5 Benefits of Glycolic Acid:

  1. Exfoliation – Exfoliates and helps to resurface the skin revealing softer, smoother, and more evenly toned skin.
  2. Brightening – Breaks down dead skin cells, and stimulates collagen production to reveal and produce new, bright, and radiant skin.
  3. Stimulates production of collagen which will help to vanish fine lines, acne scars/active acne.
  4. Smaller Pores – BY removing dead skin cells on the surface, pores are less defined and look smaller.
  5. Rejuvenates – increases the elasticity of skin which will aid in plumping to lessen fine lines and wrinkles

My absolute favorite product that contains glycolic acid is Glytone. This product has helped my keratosis pilaris to lighten and become significantly less noticeable.
