What is glycolic acid?

Glycolic acid is a chemical exfoliant and an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA). It’s colourless, odourless and used commonly in skin care. Derived from sugar cane, glycolic is the smallest AHA which allows it to penetrate deep under the surface of the skin. 

What does glycolic acid do to the skin? 

At the forefront of its many benefits is the acid’s ability to deeply exfoliate the skin. In fact, glycolic acid is considered the “holy grail” ingredient for exfoliation. It is made up of small molecules which allow easy deep penetration and exfoliation of the skin. It even has an incredible capability of penetrating deep into the hair follicles and releasing built-up sebum and proteins that lead to blackheads and breakouts.

Glycolic acid benefits

Besides exfoliation, there are many benefits to introducing glycolic acid to your regime, including: 

  • Improving skin smoothness

  • Brightens skin

  • Can help to reduce sun damage, rough and flaky patches 

  • Hydrates

  • Diminishes the look of pigmentation

  • Clears blocked pores 

How to use glycolic acid?

If you’re using glycolic for the first time, introduce it into your routine slowly. Depending on how sensitive your skin is, you might need to use it every second day for a while until you get used to it. Another great way to start is by using a glycolic acid cleanser first before introducing a serum or moisturiser product that you leave on overnight.

At La Clinica, we offer a curated edit of the best glycolic acid skincare products including cleanser, toner, exfoliators and moisturisers. Our Resurfacing product range has already enjoyed huge success and has fast become the most sought after range of glycolic acid Australia wide. 

Glycolic acid cleanser

Our glycolic acid cleanser is a light cream cleanser with added Vitamin C to gently refine skin texture whilst removing impurities and pollutants from the skin. It is ideal for targeting blocked pores, coarse skin textures, blemishes, acne and oily skin conditions.

Glycolic acid toner

If you’re looking for a toning product, try our 8% Glycolic Acid Toning Mist. It helps to adjust skin's pH after cleansing and is ideal for skin irregularities, pigmentation, enlarged pores, skin damage and wrinkles.

Glycolic acid peel

Try perhaps the most classic way to use this AHA with our glycolic acid exfoliant. The microdermabrasion scrub uses the same exfoliating particle as a Micro Dermabrasion machine. Made with Glycolic Acid and Vitamin C, it helps to achieve a smooth, refined and radiant complexion.
