Reveal Glowing Skin with the Hydroxy Acid Cream

Truly get your beauty sleep and wake up to revitalised and radiant skin with La Clinica’s exfoliating AHA / BHA / PHA moisture cream. The Resurfacing Stage 2 Active Moisture Cream 10% is packed with endless benefits, formulated with Glycolic acid, Salicylic and Lactobionic acids, plus Vitamin C to give you your brightest, best skin yet. How does it live up to this promise, you ask?

The three acids ensure your skin is attended to in multiple ways: 

  1. Glycolic acid helps gently break down the bonds between the dull, dead cells on the top layers of the skin, making way for softer, more radiant skin underneath. 
  2. Salicylic acid focuses on clearing out and unclogging pores, targeting blemishes and congestion. 
  3. Lactobionic acid exfoliates the surface layer of the skin and also works as a great humectant that helps hydrate the skin and keep it plump. 

Frequent, low strength exfoliation is important for maintaining healthy skin, it can help keep acne at bay, improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, brighten skin, diminish the appearance of existing pigmentation all while increasing the skin’s hydration and keeping it supple, strong and bouncy. The cream format means the Resurfacing Moisture Cream is easily tolerated, meaning you can use it regularly without irritation.

The Resurfacing Active Moisture Cream in 4:

  • Refines and brightens the skin’s texture and tone
  • Keeps blemishes at bay
  • Increases hydration
  • Attends to fine lines and wrinkles

What is Glycolic Acid?

Glycolic Acid is a chemical exfoliant which comes under the umbrella of Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA’s). It is a common and super effective way to give your skin a refresh, as it works to ‘resurface’ the skin. If you find your skin is often dull and congested-looking, Glycolic acid is a great way to bring your complexion back to life as the acid gently helps remove the build-up, revealing healthy skin underneath. Worried the acid will dry your skin out? Glycolic and Lactobionic acid actually help hydrate your skin too, skin is not only smooth, but also soft and supple.  

Can Glycolic Acid and Vitamin C be used together?

Excellent ingredients when used individually, these ingredients also work amazingly well in tandem, boosting their common benefits. The Resurfacing Moisture Cream includes them both to deliver brighter, smoother skin and help stimulate collagen production.

How to use Glycolic Acid?

If you’re unsure or new to Glycolic Acid, try these tips to ensure you get the best results for your skin:

  • Apply first at night only
  • Don’t use with any other strong actives such as other acids, enzymes or retinol 
  • Apply sunscreen the next day
