What does it do?
It helps shed dead skin cells and reveal the newer, brighter layers underneath by acting on the outermost layer of skin
Glycolic acid is a great choice for acne-prone skin. It works by ungluing dead skin cells from each other, which clears out your pores, helping to prevent blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples.
Because glycolic acid penetrates your skin so easily, it can get deeper into your skin too. Glycolic acid can stimulate deep under your skin to produce increased amounts of collagen.
Night Wonder Concentrate
Our gentle gycolic acid does more than treat breakouts. The ingredient can also tackle hyperpigmentation, dullness, and signs of skin aging, such as lines and wrinkles.
Do's and Don'ts
Don't: Over Exfoliate
Combining it with more intensive exfoliating ingredients is best avoided. That means any manual exfoliant (like a face scrub) should be saved for days you don't plant to use glycolic acid.
Do: Peels & Masks
If you know your skin is up for glycolic, try it in a peel. While medical-grade peels are stronger, with more potent effects, at-home peels and glycolic acid masks are products you can use more regularly in your routine.
You can mix glycolic acid with other skin-care ingredients like Torricelumn™ and retinol. If you have sensitive skin, stick to serums and moisturizers with hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid for the rest of your routine.
