Glycolic Acid – the perfect exfoliant for refreshing dull skin

Say hello to glycolic acid – a proven way to refresh dull, depleted skin. This powerful alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) helps to transform skin for benefits you’ll see with every use.

Glycolic acid works wonders for the skin. First, it refines the complexion by exfoliating away dead skin to leave it looking bright and fresh. It also helps to decongest pores and visibly smooth texture. Plus, it helps boost the efficacy of other products and draws water into the skin to replenish moisture. Lastly, glycolic acid targets signs of aging by diminishing the look of wrinkles and fine lines while also supporting natural collagen production.

Below are some of the different ways to easily add glycolic acid into your routine:

Add it as a cleanser

Our Glycolic Citrus Cleanser effectively exfoliates the skin, leaving it looking softer and smoother. Adding our glycolic acid cleanser into your regular routine a few times each week can also help to even out your skin tone and leave your complexion visibly glowing.



Add it as a toner

Our GlycoSolution 5% targets signs of aging, helps reveal brighter looking skin and preps the skin for serums and moisturizers to follow. We recommend starting off by using this glycolic acid toner one to two times per week and increasing to three to four times per week. If your skin becomes more accustomed to this level of glycolic acid and you’re no longer seeing the results you used to, you can up your level of glycolic acid by moving to our GlycoSolution 10%.



Add it as an exfoliant

Our Brightening Peel Pads not only add glycolic acid to your routine, but they also function as a manual and chemical exfoliant in one. They feature a professional strength blend of glycolic, salicylic and lactic acid to offer visible results fast. These waffle-pattern pads reveal more radiant skin in a single swipe by helping to purge impurities, smoothing skin and visibly brightening the appearance of dark spots.



Add it as a body wash

Our Active Body Wash is another way to add glycolic acid to your routine – but this time, we’re targeting the skin from your shoulders to toes. This wash helps to keep skin below the neck looking clearer and smoother and also helps to limit the chance of ingrown hairs. Gentle enough for daily use, our glycolic acid body wash not only helps to unclog pores and wash away impurities, but it also works to optimize skin hydration and calm sensitivity.
