Glycolic acid is a key ingredient in fighting the signs of aging. Glycolic acid is an Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) found naturally in sugar cane. It is an exfoliator that safely removes the outer layer of dead skin cells on the surface your skin, bring fresh new skin to the surface. It can also help lighten sun spots or age spots and help those with fine lines and wrinkles. Glycolic acid cleans deep into the pores making it great for both aging and acne prone skin.
My skin loves glycolic acid; it adds a brightness, shrinks pores and smooths the texture of my skin. It comes in many strengths so if you are new to using this ingredient, make sure to start slowly and work up. Skin Smoothie is 10% glycolic acid which is mild, but if you have sensitive skin, you might want to start with 5%.
