Why add Glycolic acid to your skin care routine?
Glycolic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) known for its exfoliating properties. It is particularly effective in promoting smoother and more radiant skin. It breaks down the bonds between dead skin cells, helping to remove the outermost layer of the skin. Regular use of glycolic acid can lead to a more even skin tone and a brighter complexion making it beneficial for individuals with dull or discolored skin.
