Glycolic Acid (an AHA - alpha hydroxy acid) has incredible resurfacing properties that can transform the look and feel of your skin. AHAs “unglue” the bonds that cause dull, dead skin to cling to the skin’s surface. Once the bonds are broken, the skin slowly sheds away these dead skin cells. Although you can’t physically see the exfoliation, smoother skin is on the way. Younger, brighter skin is revealed when these dull skin cells are stripped away. Glycolics exfoliate the skin better than other AHAs due to their small molecular structure. It speeds cell turnover to more effectively eliminate dull skin cells. 

Glycolics also encourage collagen production. Collagen gives our skin its plumpness, firmness and elasticity. As we age, collagen production gradually decreases. Using glycolic acid helps prevent the breakdown of collagen.

So, how does glycolic acid benefit your skin? Glycolic acid is a remarkable skin resurfacer. It targets fine lines and wrinkles for skin renewal and increased plumpness and hydration. Glycolic acid also reduces hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores and dullness due to its unique exfoliating properties. Last but not least, products containing glycolic acid help clear pores from the blockages that lead to acne breakouts. 

Glycolics are found in many skin care formulations. Revercel’s Perfect Glycolic Cleanser contains 15% glycolic acid for gentle exfoliation and resurfacing.
