Glycolic acid can do different things to our skin based on the % it is present in your skincare product! This can extended for a combination of AHAs as well! 💫
🌟 Below % can help treat your problems. x% means there should x ml of acid in 100ml of the serum.
– At 3-8%, it slowly improves skin texture and fades hyperpigmentation. These concentrations can be used up to daily, as your skin get used to it. If you are a new user, start using every alternate day
– At 10-15%, it gradually improves skin texture and fades pigmentation. Adds skin hydration, fades wrinkles and makes skin firmer. Restrict the use of this concentration to 2/3 times per week again as your skin tolerates it
– At 15-30%, you can get all the above results and faster. If your skin can tolerate, this is our recommended concentration – as you can restrict the usage to 1/2 times per week and this minimal exposure also ensures skin doesn’t dry up as it can happen with a frequent usage!
✨If something says a ‘aha product’ it means it is a mixture of various ahas and should be used the same way as you would use pure glycolic acid
Remember the below tips, while you are using glycolic acid/ any other aha in any form
💦 Keep your skin moisturised or hydrated to not let the skin dry up! Also, the product works well/ works without irritation on a well hydrated skin.
⏳ Always start slow and then increase the concentration based on how your skin is reacting to it! It is always tempting to increase the concentration, given that they work wonders on your skin!
🌞 Sunscreen, sunscreen and more sunscreen! It is very important to use sunscreen when you are using acids.
