What is Glycolic acid?
Glycolic acid is an alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) derived from sugar cane that is exceptional at dissolving dead skin cells and resurfacing the skin. Not only does it help to improve your skin’s texture, it also boosts moisture levels in your skin, as well as brightness.
Glycolic acid is a chemical exfoliant that helps to tackle problems like pigmentation, sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, acne scarring and dehydration.
What Skin Types Should Use Alpha-H Liquid Gold?
What is Alpha-H Liquid Gold? Well, it is anti-aging serum best for those with mature skin types, as this serum has anti-aging benefits that will brighten and firm the skin over time.
Alpha-H Liquid Gold contains 5% Glycolic acid and is well suited to normal-dry skin types, as it boosts moisture levels in the skin.
While Alpha-H Liquid Gold helps to improve acne scarring and congestion, those with oily-combination skin types will benefit more from treatments containing Salycilic acid, which helps balance oil production.
Those with sensitive skin may find products with Glycolic acid irritating and should opt for something with something milder like Lactic acid.
