Glycolic Acid: A Magic Ingredient
Why is Glycolic Acid a magic potion to your skincare?
There are lots of ingredients derived from nature that enhance your skin while restoring them from the damages done by the environmental factors and chemicals. One of them is Glycolic Acid that has recently become one of the most renown ingredients in our skincare routine.
Some of us tend to fear the word acid being used in the products, but what is a lesser-known fact is that not all acids are harmful and in fact, they do more good than most other natural ingredients.
What is Glycolic Acid?
Glycolic acid is an alpha-hydroxy acid, an organic, carbon-containing molecule. It is one of the main ingredients used mostly in toners and exfoliators that helps deep cleanse your skin and make it smooth and soft. It boosts the skin cell turnover that makes your skin look fresher and younger.
Fact: If used in the right amount, it is a very gentle exfoliator for your skin.
With that, there are many other benefits as well. Let's count them all:
- It helps in the skin’s anti-ageing process.
- It amazingly minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Very much recommended for people who deal with acne and pimples in their everyday life.
- Exfoliates dead skin cells and thus makes your skin glow.
- Gives your face an even skin tone.
- Uncommon fact is that it is highly recommended for new mothers to help them restore their skin’s health.
- It can transfer water molecules from the air into the skin tissue, replenishing any lost moisture.
- It is an effective ingredient in moisturizers when used at low strength
Glycolic acid has no side effects on your skin. It reacts with the top layer of skin, breaking it down by the sebum and other substances that bring all the cells together helping it look young with a rich radiance.
