Glycolic acid is a cosmetic chemical commonly used in skincare products due to its numerous benefits. It belongs to the family of alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) and is derived from sugarcane.

  1. Patch Test: Before incorporating glycolic acid into your routine, perform a patch test on a small area of skin to check for any adverse reactions or allergies.
  2. Frequency: Start by using glycolic acid products once or twice a week, gradually increasing usage as your skin tolerates it.
  3. Cleanse: Begin with a clean and dry face.
  4. Application: Apply a small amount of glycolic acid product to the desired area, avoiding the eye area and any open wounds.
  5. Time Duration: Follow the instructions provided by the product manufacturer for the recommended time to leave the product on your skin.
  6. Neutralize (if applicable): If using a concentrated glycolic acid peel, some products may require neutralization with water or a provided neutralizing solution.
  7. Moisturize and Protect: After using glycolic acid, apply a moisturizer and sunscreen with a broad-spectrum SPF to protect your skin from potential sun damage.
  1. Exfoliation: Glycolic acid acts as an exfoliant by gently removing dead skin cells, promoting a smoother and brighter complexion. It helps to unclog pores, reduce acne breakouts, and diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  2. Skin Renewal: By encouraging cellular turnover, glycolic acid helps in the production of new collagen and elastin, which are essential for maintaining firm and youthful skin.
  3. Hyperpigmentation Reduction: Glycolic acid can fade dark spots, sunspots, and discoloration caused by age or sun damage, leading to a more even skin tone.
  4. Moisturization: It has humectant properties, attracting and retaining moisture in the skin, resulting in improved hydration levels.
  5. Skincare Product Penetration: By removing the top layer of dead skin cells, glycolic acid enhances the absorption and effectiveness of other skincare products applied afterwards.
  1. Sensitivity: Individuals with sensitive skin may experience redness, stinging, or irritation when using glycolic acid. If these symptoms persist or worsen, discontinue use and consult a dermatologist.
  2. Sun Sensitivity: Glycolic acid can increase the skin's sensitivity to the sun. Therefore, it is crucial to apply sunscreen with a high SPF and avoid prolonged sun exposure.
  3. Combination with Other Active Ingredients: When using glycolic acid, be cautious when combining it with other active ingredients such as retinol or benzoyl peroxide, as it may increase the likelihood of skin irritation.
  4. Discontinue Usage: If you experience severe skin irritation, burning, or blistering, immediately stop using glycolic acid products and seek medical advice.
  5. Eye Area: Avoid applying glycolic acid near or around the eyes, as it can cause irritation and should not come into direct contact with sensitive eye tissue.

Remember, it is always advisable to consult a dermatologist or skincare professional before incorporating new skincare products, particularly if you have specific skin concerns or conditions.
