Glycolic acid is a fantastic chemical exfoliant that is well-tolerated by most skin types and is used to minimize the appearance of aging skin, acne blemishes, oily skin, blackheads, pigmentation, and sun-damage. After years of hands-on experiences using Glycolic Acid on thousands of clients with very stubborn skin issues, I have come to trust and rely on its magical ability to help my clients achieve dramatic results quickly.
Glycolic Acid is not only very effective, it's also one of the most affordable ingredients you can use if you are trying to improve multiple skin issues at once quickly on a budget. Now, I know there are many new "magical" ingredients on the market that have good PR agents enticing you to pull out your wallet with promises of overnight miracles or "your money back." Promises, promises. But after 20 years in the skincare industry using hundreds of professional-grade products promising my clients "overnight" miracles, I always come back to using Glycolic Acid because I've seen it deliver consistent results to thousands of my clients with stubborn issues.
Glycolic Acid is the most active and beneficial of all the alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) in the skincare industry. Traditionally, it was made from sugar cane, but to ensure quality, today it is most often derived synthetically. Glycolic is the only AHA that is able to penetrate deep through the cell walls by virtue of its small molecular size. Once inside the cell, Glycolic Acid will trigger the stimulation of collagen and turn on the synthesis of dermal glycosaminoglycans to plump up the cell allowing the skin to produce its own NMF (Natural Moisturizing Factors) while reducing the signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, and sun-damage.
I have found Glycolic to be an incredible ingredient to use on all skin types but it is especially effective on thicker or "tougher" skin that is oily and acne-prone. That’s because it breaks apart the intercellular cement holding skin cells together that often appears as a thick layer of oily dead skin buildup on the surface. The acid cleverly unclogs the follicle by traveling deep into the pores where acne, oil, and bacteria hide and live.
Okay, I think I've beaten you over the head enough with trying to make my point. Let me know if you have any questions below and remember to stay gorgeous and Ill see you soon in a new video.
