Helps to mattify your skin’s surface
Excess oil can be one of the most difficult skin issues to treat and manage. However, it can also be a blessing, as it’s a natural moisturiser that prevents your skin from becoming too dry. Dry skin is more prone to wrinkles and premature ageing.
Glycolic acid helps you to manage the buildup of oil on the surface of your skin, without drying the skin out. It helps to mattify your skin’s surface, resulting in a shine-free appearance that lasts for longer.
Dissolves away dead skin cells
Glycolic acid gently exfoliates your skin by removing the dead surface cells that can pile up on your skin’s outer layer. These dead cells can otherwise make the skin appear dry and flaky. Once this buildup is removed and the surface of your skin is clear, your moisturiser or serum will seep into your skin and hydrate it more effectively.
Encourages a natural glow
Once the dead cells on your skin’s surface have been removed, the newer, younger skin beneath is revealed. This helps the skin to appear brighter and more radiant.
More plump-looking skin
Studies have found that glycolic acid helps to boost the production of collagen. Collagen is a vital protein that makes your skin appear plump, firm, and more resistant to wrinkles.
